The reception staff were very helpful and efficient. The room was outstanding; the bathroom in particular. The spa was excellent. The service staff in the restaurant(a very outgoing young man and a more quiet, short girl with long dark hair; sorry I can't remember their names) were particularly professional, pleasant. An excellent experience overall.

We paid €18 each on the weekend (staff told us it's normally €15 during weekdays). The spa is located within the hot - which looks very very nice and is located in the centre of Porretta... More

The staff at Helvetia, Porretta is what makes this hotel shine. Helvetia's staff go out of their way to make your stay warm and inviting. The room was smaller than expected, especially for 2 people (read 2 women with luggage). Put forth a lot of effort to leave the "ugly american" persona out of my disposition and enjoyed my stay,...

Simply a great place to stay, great staff,location (especially for soul festival). No complaints. Perhaps in could have been a little less expensive but at the end of the day, you get what you pay for.

Nice hotel with good spa facilities, pleasant staff, helpful and courteous. Prices reasonable. An oasis of rest and relaxation for a few days. Village is small so there's not a lot to do otherwise but if you like lounging around indoors in warm spa water and using leisure facilities,this is as good as it gets.

The SPA. It is well designed, with the real cave touch, big pool, where you can swim and takes heavy shower of hot termal water. ALso, it has sauna and hamam with aromatic oils. The spa is big, escpessialy compare to the city. The only concern is opening hours, as we have been for the business, and came back around... More

Great room. great location, great food, wonderful spa. Friendly staff and attentive attendants. Only negative is the front facing room overlooked the bar outdoor area so we heard some chatter until late at night on a hot summer evening.
