We stayed for a week in July for a family holiday in Venice. Staying on Lido worked well for us, as it is much quieter and it doesn't take long to get around by vaporetto (and you get great views from the boat). Hotel Helvetia is 1 minute walk from the water bus docks and very easy to find. The... More

We stayed there for three days in June 2014. Hotel is located on Lido, in front of the vaporetto station. It is about 5-7 minutes from Venice San Marco station by vaporetto. Lido itself is also very nice green icland full of flowers, and and the hotel was surrounded by green trees as well. Room was very comfortable and clean,... More

We stayed at Helvetia for 3 nights as we attended a wedding in Venice. The location is excellent, right on the Granviale and close to the vaporetto station. Our room was clean (however, some of the rooms can be very small..!), air condition worked fine and the bed wasn't uncomfortable. If you are just looking for a place to sleep,... More

We chose to stay on Lido because of the beach, and it was an easy walk from the hotel. The proximity to the vaporetto wharf was also great. However, our rooms were tiny and felt claustrophobic, and the volume on the tiny television was too low to appreciate it. The breakfasts were good and we had the option of having... More

We stayed for a long weekend in July and were very pleased with the hotel and its access to Venice. The hotel is a really pleasant old building very conveniently situated for the vaporetto (1 min walk), providing excellent access to the city. The room was comfortable and clean with en suite. A little small but excellent value at the... More

The room itself was pretty small and the bed had one side against the wall which meant someone had to climb over to tree side. But the room was really clean, serviced well and had all we needed. The location was perfect , central , by restaurants but not by busy bars . We had a fab holiday that wasn't... More

It's lovely to go back to the Hotel Helvetia. The greeting is warm, and the staff are welcoming. The breakfast was in the nice little courtyard garden, as the weather was warm. A great start to the day. It is so nice and calm on the Lido, away from the crowds of St Mark's Square and Rialto area, but only... More

Great place to get away from the crowds of Venice. Its a 10 minute vaporetto (water taxi) to San Marco Square, which is shorter than taking the vaporetto from other parts of Venice. The hotel is within walking distance from a free public beach along the Adriatic Sea. The hotel is in proximity to the vaporetto stop, many restaurants, ATMs,... More

The location of this hotel is excellent - a minute from the vaporetto stop and 8 minutes walk to the beach. the Lido is a wonderful part of Venice to base yourself in. The hotel is good value - but a bit dated. Some of the desk staff were very helpful, others seemed to forget that you were the paying... More

The hotel is old and pretty basic but for the money considering how expensive Venice is it is a good deal. It certainly is clean , breakfast is basic the usual pastries and coffee and some fruit.The best thing about this hotel is the reliable information from the front desk especially one young man who was very knowledgeable about classical...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A pretty hotel just a canal-hop from Venice, the Helvetia Hotel offers a break from the norm. Set down a leafy boulevard in the heart of Venice Lido, the Helvetia is a world away from your run-of-the-mill city hotel. Inside, it brims with Venetian flair and sophistication, while outside there’s a lovely flower-filled garden where you can enjoy al fresco breakfasts. ... more   less
