This hotel felt like home away from home. Located close to main road Nevsky prospekt and near railway station , Helvetia was clean and comfortable, staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent and we enjoyed Dinner during our stay at the Marius and Claret which was within the courtyard of Hotel. Portions were generous and staff again extremely obliging.... More

Great hotel, right in the middle of everywhere. Nice clean rooms, courtyard for coffee. Breakfast was o.k., would have liked maybe a bit more "western" breakfast...e.g. yogurt, cereals. Staff were very helpfull, Great hotel for position to all the museums and shopping.

This is a lovely gem of a hotel- nice -comfortable-friendly staff-super clean-rooms nicely laid out-good location-really good value for the money. Rooms in back face roof tops and are super quiet-lovely courtyard for lunch- cocktails. From the moment we started applying for a visa to leaving for the airport they could not have been nicer or any more helpful- kudos... More

This is the place to be ! A 2 mn walk from the Perspective Nesky, the local Champs Elysee's Avenue in St Petersbourg. A very quiet place having rooms that are inside a small patio (no noise at all), this is very important as you have a lot noise around being downtown. The hotel may appear old because it is... More

We stayed here with the group of friends in June. Very pleasantly decorated, only few meters away from the central road Nevski prospect, but very quiet location. Imaginative breakfast provides you with the Russian specialty blini and herring as well as traditional European breakfast choices. Concierge is very helpful, knowledgeable and appears to be bias free. We asked for restaurants... More

We stayed in this comfortable hotel for three nights. The staff was very friendly, helpful and efficient. This proved to be especially true one evening when a pickpocket snatched the purse of one member of our group in the nearby subway station. The concierge personally escorted us to the local police station and assisted us in reporting the incident, acting... More

The Helvetia Hotel is located in a building which goes back to the early 19th Century so one has a sense of old St Petersburg whilst staying there. I liked especially the welcome on arrival with a glass of sparkling wine given whilst the reservation details were being completed. Rooms are very comfortable and roomy and well appointed with robe/slippers... More

This hotel met our every need and exceeded our expectations. Our party of 4 booked 2 Superior rooms facing the courtyard. We stayed 8 wonderful days. The staff checked us in quickly, spoke fluent English and provided a warm and friendly greeting. Our luggage was brought to our rooms which was appreciated since one room was on the 3rd floor....

The hotel has a nice exterior, pleasant courtyard that is about it. There is no elevator, rooms are really small and you can see the furniture that is really very much IKEA quality but also quite old/used. The rooms are clean. WiFi is extremely slow in the rooms. I had to switch to 3G in order to be able to... More

Stayed recently at this very nice, relaxing hotel during the time of the busy Business Forum. Despite the city being full and taxis limited, the hotel went out of their way to make sure travel was pre-arranged and instructions given for a smooth stay. Rooms are quiet and comfortable, the staff are helpful, the hotel drivers are professional and informative,... More
