We stayed 5 nights on the Lido at the Hotel Helvetia in Venice. It is located on Lido's main street and is easy to locate from the Waterbus 51 and 52 stop. This was our first hotel at the beginning of our stay in Italy when we appreciated such a good night's rest. The hotel was clean, quiet and served... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Hotel Helvetia on the Lido, in Venice. The hotel is old and the lobby is dark and drab with outdated furnishing. Our room and bathroom was very small with the double bed was pushed up against the wall so one person has to crawl in from the bottom or over the other person. It... More

This hotel is friendly, clean and comfortable, with a good breakfast choice. It is very close to the vaporetto stops on Lido and Venice, St Marks is only some ten minutes away. There are plenty of nice restaurants and cafes nearby. Lido is also one of the shortest journies from Marco Polo airport on the Alilaguna shuttle ferry. Overall this... More

Lovely place stayed here last year and liked it enough to rebook it. It's an ideal place to stay very near the vaporetti and a lovely beach so you have the best of both culture and beach what more can anyone want. It is a clean and breakfast is lovely in the garden or inside love it.

We had a lovely few days in Venice and I would definitely recommend this hotel as it was very good value for money, it has the charm of an older hotel, we stayed on room only basis, the rooms were spotlessly clean and ours was very spacious, it was in an excellent position close to the vaporetto station. Great relaxed... More

Hotel Helvetia is an older motel but very well kept and maintained. From an American's standpoint (I am but I have EU citizenship too), the rooms may be small or older looking style wise. However, I wouldn't let that deter you. It's very clean and taken care of - not old looking or run down. The staff was great and... More

The staff at the desk and serving breakfast were very helpful and breakfast was something to look forward to each morning! The breakfast staff and breakfast was actually superb! Our room #7 had a nice view over the street in front of the hotel. The air conditioner was a blessing from the heat of the day for the bedroom, but... More

The Venice Lido, and particularly the Hotel Helvetia, is the best place to return back to after a hectic day in crowded Venice. The Hotel is always welcoming, and calm, and the little town is so pleasant to stroll around in the evening. There are lots of nice little cafes and restaurants, to suit all pockets, and the view across... More
