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

We stayed for 3 nights and booked 2 rooms for our family of 4 with a sea facing and garden facing room. The rooms are fresh and clean. This hotel has an amazing setting overlooking the Bay of Silence in Sestri. The service is warm and attentive. Although they do not serve dinners, there are plenty options in walking distance....

Wonderful stay for five nights in July 2016. The hotel is an a great location in the Baia di Silenzio and just a short walk from the main part of Sestri. The hotel is family run and nothing was too much trouble. Very friendly service from everyone from the front desk to the waiters at breakfast and lunch and the... More

What made this hotel so special is the incredible service and welcoming atmosphere. The team that works in the hotel feels like a happy family. They want you to come relax... More

We were driving to Sestri Levante and had to pull over and walk to the hotel to get directions on how to get there as the sat nav failed us. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful from the start. We were given a glass of prosecco as well as crisps, focaccia with pesto and olives to enjoy on the... More

I have travelled and have stayed in all types of hotels, hostels and b&bs! This one is by far my favorite! I will definitely go back to Cinque Terre and stay there! I have never experience such a gentle, intentioned and friendly service! Everything was perfect! The breakfast, rooms, view, position, service...

This is the only place to stay in Sestri Levante! We travel to Italy annually, and this is by far one of our favorite places. It is a small, boutique hotel with a large personality. The family that owns it has been in hospitality for generations, and it shows. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the staff is warm, friendly, and... More

There are few such idyllic spots in the world as this. The Bay of Silence where the hotel Helvetia is situated in Sestri Levante dates back to 700/800 . Flying into Genoa airport , we had grabbed our hire car and were walking into the reception at the hotel 45mins later. What a perfect spot for a romantic weekend break.... More

Received a warm welcome on arrival. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. We had a junior suite, as there was no availability for double rooms. It was expensive and not really value for money compared with other hotels on the coast. The room was on the cool side all of the time, even with aircon switched off. Also, the shutters... More
