#4 of 501 hotels in St. Petersburg
Travelers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Within a leisurely stroll from Nevsky Prospect there is a historic building of the Helvetia Hotel, with origins dating back to the early 19th century. The hotel's interiors successfully combine St. Petersburg's harmonious style with the elegance of European design. Native Russian cordiality, coupled with Swiss traditions of cosiness and hospitality, individual attention to every guest and international service standards, are the distinguishing features of the Helvetia Hotel.

The Helvetia's Old World Russian charm - tea at four, made with a samovar, taken in the pleasant central courtyard - and personalized service makes this truly a deluxe hotel experience. This hotel really looks after its guests. They don't just call you a taxi, they'll send you and from with a hotel car and staff. All of the staff are very pleasant and helpful. The room was very comfortable, though not large by North American standards.The amenities are up to date and wifi is fine; however, the hotel dates from the 19th century and has plenty of wood-panelled atmosphere. It's just around the corner from FM Dostoevski's last apartment in St. Petersburg, so if you are literary fan, the location is paradise. There are many other attractoins, restos and shops in the district. The neighbourhood is close to Nevsky Prospekt, but set back enough to feel less hurried and quieter. I'd definitely come back.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
We stayed in the Helvetia whilst spending a few nights in St Petersburg after the river cruise from Moscow to St Petersburg. The hotel is charming being housed in a building that was once part of the Swiss Embassy. Location is excellent, being just off Nevski Prospekt, nearest metro is Mayakovskaya. The rooms are comfortable and housekeeping is excellent. Staff deliver a chocolate and a weather report to your room every evening. The breakfast is buffet and there is plenty to choose from. There is a courtyard outside where you can have afternoon tea or a drink in the evening. Food in the hotel restaurant is of a very high standard and there is a vegetarian choice (no mean feat in Russia!). If I were to return to St Petersburg,I would stay here again.
