This hotel is not bad, but do not expect superior rooms beautiful, are just bigger than others. The hotel is neat and clean, superior rooms spacious with a nice bathroom. The staff upon arrival was not much smiling and welcoming, shame because the welcome on arrival is a business card of the hotel. However, the staff of the breakfast was... More

Away from the busy Venice Island, easy access to everything with the Vaporeto station around the corner. Front desk was very helpful, breakfast was good but eggs for weekends only that one I don't understand. Hotel and room s are very clean only toilets are a little tight if I was a bigger person I would have a problem. Overall... More

The decoration of this hotel obviously hasn't had an update sinds the 1940's or 50'r and I love it for that. Wonderful 'Madmen'-armchairs, large wooden doors etcetera. Some of the rooms are very large, the ecoomy rooms are tiny. The location is very good, near the boat to Vence San Marco. Staff at the reception is very friendly and helpful.... More

I checked in an noticed that the hotel lobby an corridors were dark and gloomy although it was in the middle of the day. Our room is located some where on the fourth floor but the lift only goes to the third floor, then you have to carry your bag up some narrow steps to your room. Got in to... More

Ten points for the perfect location. It was easy to go to the hotel in the evening, because it is very close to the boat terminal. There is lot of shops and restaurants near this hotel. We stayed for two nights. Receptionist was welcoming when we came in and the hotel is very clean from the inside and out. Rooms... More

The hotel's location is a few meters from the vaporetti terminal in Lido. There are a lot of shops and restaurants on the front road. Inside, the hotel looks outdated and the room we were given was extremely small. Overall it is a medium choice in case you don't have to stay for long in the room.

I stayed at the Helvetia hotel in May 2015. The hotel is located very close to the vaporetta station and its amenities are excellent, there are nice restaurants nearby a supermarket, bakeries and the hotel is only located within a 10 minutes walk to the beach. Upon our arrival a lady was there named Isabella, she was arguing on the... More

The hotel staff here were more than welcoming and very helpful, and very nice people, the rooms were cosy and the shower was very powerful, just what you need after a long busy day, the only downside was there was no tea and coffee facilities within the room and the pillows wer like bricks which left my neck in pain...

This hotel is much worse than described in the previous reviews. It is very cheap and you really do get what you pay for here. The only thing positve about the place is the location, it is literally right where you catch the boat buses. The hotel is dark as soon as you enter and the rooms are even worse.... More

Dear Sarah J., We are sorry you have not enjoyed your stay in our hotel. Apart from the size of the room (economy rooms have 14 square meters and we beleive you have booked an economy double room with queen size bed), we must add that it is hardly possible that our rooms smell as you have described in your...
