This is the secret place for a calm and relaxing holiday that we don't really want to tell people about! The friendly and helpful management and staff cannot be faulted. The location is ideal for a quiet get-away.

My wife and I were blessed to stay at this fine hotel for our 30th anniversary. We were immediately greeted by the owner Alessandro and his wife Marcella. They could not have been more loving nor more helpful. This hotel was once his grandfather's mountain top mansion overlooking the harbor at Sestri Levante. The views are absolutely spectacular. The attention... More

We splurged and spent a night at Hotel Helvetia after a week long tour of Cinque Terre. Recommended by Rick Steves, we needed some pampering and rest and received it in spades. The hotel is beautiful, the service exceptional, and the location is stunning. It is a bit pricey but we will never regret it. We enjoyed a lovely meal... More

This was our second stay at this hotel. We chose the Casita which is a stand alone room behind the pool with its own private garden. It can accommodate 2 to 4 people. Breakfast fabulous!! Wonderful front desk staff that speaks English. So very helpful. Waiters superb. Maid was delightful. View is the best I've ever seen. Good lunch pizza.... More

The Hotel Helvetia has a beautiful setting in the attractive town of Sestri Levante. This is an excellent hotel, very comfortable and with a classy design. The service is outstanding, very personalised without being over the top. The breakfast buffet was outstanding, fresh bread and pastries, fruit and cheese together with excellent coffee. All of this served on a terrace... More

Faultless from start to finish. Hotel is literally off the beach in the famous Bay of Silence. Pools, drinks on the terraces. Staff were delightful and extremely attentive. Rooms were cleaned and tidied every time you looked around. Fabulous breakfast with everything you might want. Great hotel and I would highly recommend it.

A lovely hotel on the edge of town with only about (from memory) twenty-five rooms, so surprisingly quiet. The attractive town is literally a five minute walk. Lovely breakfasts and lunches at hotel but no dinner, but plenty restaurants nearby. The town has a station so ideal place to stay to go north towards Santa Margarita and Portofino or south... More

Stayed here for a week end of June. Had room on second floor with balcony overlooking the Bay. Absolutely stunning. Found it better to sunbathe on the roof terrace (5th floor) which looks over the bay and also offers a refreshing breeze. Enjoyed the use of the complimentary cycles on a couple of occasions to explore around the bay on... More
