Very grumpy, rude man at front desk, checking in and out were nightmares. The pool was too cool. Huge everything: restaurant, pool, but poorly staffed. Food was barely edible. Elevators were so slow there were lines to take one. No bellhop. There’s more, but suffice it to say, AVOD THIS PLACE. And maybe avoid this tacky town, too.
All services were good and having the pool open till late hours was great to end the day in total relaxation. Rooms are spacious. The hotel is near the pedestrian areas We enjoyed our stay and will defenately go back.
The hotel is comfortable, to say the least. Rooms are spacious and quiet, very well equipped. At breakfast there is a really wide choice of food and beverages. Abano is a nice little town with a pleasant center. However the best of our experience was the thermal pool, where we spent most of the day: it is large and warm and surrounded by a beautiful garden. Sauna and steam bath are also available.
Lovely hotel. Lovely facilities when they work and lovely location. The staff. Not so lovely and also undertrained. Tempted to mention names but will skip this place is great but staff need some training and can be a bit more helpful. The hotel is great. The breakfast not 4 stars but still decent with fresh eggs that are cooked for you and nice croissants but lacking variety. Like being in Italy a few more breads, some olives etc. Any questions holla and will try and help.
Hotel Terme Helvetia is a nice thermal water hotel in Abano Terme, Italy. There are two connected with each other thermal water pools with hydro massage facilities: inside the building and in the open air. Pros: large water pools, a lot of hydro massage facilities, sunbeds, Turkish bath, sauna, spacious room, free bikes, nice halls. Cons: expensive dinners, personnel could be more friendly.
My friend and I were looking at options for a well deserved spa retreat in the UK and stumbled across the Abano Terme region in Italy and decided that this was a much preferred option to the UK expensive spa breaks. We were not disappointed! Hotel was a little gem with everything you could ask for on a two day chilled break. Hotel room was clean , spacious with lovely views of the hills and Italian countryside. Service was excellent and breakfast croissants were the best I had tasted. So fresh and warm. Plenty of choice in other options too together with a decent cappuccino to wash it all down. Hotel very central right in the town which was quaint and full of lovely bars and cafes to sit and watch the world go by. The thermal pool was like walking into a hot bath, just perfect. Will definitely return . …
Most of the hotels in the town seem to have their own thermal pools and we were certainly happy with the pools and facilities here at a reasonable price. It was actually one large thermal pool which extended inside. There were several areas with jacuzzi jets, plus a sauna and steam room. Sunbeds surrounded the pools, and there were thicker mattresses available for many of these. Every weekday at 5pm there was a free aqua gym session. Cycle hire was free and plenty of bikes were available. Our room was superb -spacious, comfortable and with a dual aspect balcony. It could be converted to either twin beds or a double. Breakfast was good, with fresh fruit, cooked items and a pancake and omelette stations. The hotel was extremely quiet and centrally located, ( the town itself is very quiet and not for those seeking vibrant nightlife, but great for relaxing ). We had good beauty treatments in the hotel Spa for around 35 euros for a 25 min session. Our only complaint was with the shuttle service arranged by the hotel to the airport. ..we were quoted 70 euro each way to Treviso, but the price was actually 100 each way. It was a lovely place to relax for a few days, and we'd definitely return. …
The room was clean, staff helpful, breakfast nice. Pool was clean as well. The only thing I wasn't happy about is that the lighting in the room was really scarce, there were only 1-2 lamps per room on the walls and it was really dark in the room in the evening. The rest was fine for a short stay. The hotel is old and could use a bit of renovating, but everything was fine.
This is my second Easter holiday in the Abano-Montegrotto area and while I have so far enjoyed spending time with my kids at the big pools and doing the occasional spa treatment, I always struggle to understand why most of the hotels here seems to be happy to run like if we are still in the '60s , with the full board rigid arrangements , tired decor, lack of facilities for young families... Etc etc. Said that the Helvetia provided us with a Fairly large room at a very reasonable price which is pretty much (almost) all I wanted from them. I would go back.
This town is full of hotels with pools built around hot springs. We stayed here one night and unfortunately did not get to enjoy the pool (we arrived late) but we checked it out and it's beautifully set up. I'd come back to try it. Our room was very large and clean. The bed was firm which we like. If it was high season I'd worry a bit about the sound proofing. I could hear the people above us talking. But this time of year the noise didn't disturb us. The breakfast is yummy! A cook is there to make you an omelet or crepes plus there's the usual European fare. It's well worth a stay here for the lovely pool area and breakfast alone!
