We spent 5 nights at this hotel as part of a Road Scholar trip. The hotel was charming, very comfortable, and the location is great- just a block off Nevsky Propspect, St Petersburg's main boulevard. The staff is friendly, very helpful, and speak excellent English. My husband accidentally left his cell phone in a conference room, and it was waiting... More

The Helvetia Hotel is close to important shopping, dining, and sightseeing areas. The hotel has a friendly staff who speak English well. Rooms are moderate size, and bathroom well lit, with standard amenities. Marius Restaurant is open 24 hours, and has a good selection of food and wines. The inner courtyard is a pleasant place for a drink. This hotel... More

We stayed at the Helvetia for a week as part of a Road Scholar tour of St. Petersburg. The staff was very attentive to individual and group requests. We used one of their meeting rooms for daily lectures and were very comfortable. Our room was charming and had all amenities. The restaurants were also very good. I definitely recommend the... More

We booked the hotel based on reviews and was not disappointed! Great location ! We traveled it alone, so closed access to trains and busses was important. Actually, you did walk many places from the hotel, if you don't mind the distance. Young , courtiers and well English speaking stuff. Private driver and tour guide happily arranged by concierge,as well... More

I spend a week in this hotel, both solo and with a tour group. Excellent location, a block off Nevsky Prospekt. Grocery store a couple of buildings down the street and plenty of places to eat nearby...including a wonderful bakery! Hotel was charming! Nice rooms and good buffet breakfast. Loved it!!

We spent a long week-end in St-Pete, staying in Helvetia Deluxe Hotel. It is a very nice hotel, very well located in St-Pete, 5 minutes walk from Nevsky prospect and susbway station, with an excellent level of service. The two restaurants are good, and the yard is extremely pleasant. Also good value for money.

modern hotel in a good location. Room / bathroom more than adequate. Staff bilingual and helpful. Quiet with rooms behind a central courtyard. Wide variety of breakfast foods. However, friends ate dinner at the hotel and were surprised they were charged for water, cream for their coffee, etc.

This was our first trip to Russia and we were glad to have chosen the Helvetia (based on the positive reviews). The location is convenient to the Metro & Nevsky Prospekt. The staff spoke English (some very well, some well enough) and they were always helpful and quick to respond. We had a Family Room (2 adjoining rooms), which was... More
