Very lovely hotel, good breakfast with a lot to chose, very good location and friendly staff who give you a warm welcome and a holiday feeling. They arranged a ballet show in the Hermitage theatre, which I can recommend to everyone.

The Hotel is ideally located at 3 minutes walking distance from the Nevskij Prospekt. Same distance to the nearest Metro Station making every possible destination very easy to reach. The personnel do not speak perfect english but they are very polite and available. Building is quite old looking but fascinating. Rooms are clean and have everything you may need.

This hotel is in a great position for all of the sights. There are bus, metro and tram stops nearby if you don't fancy walking. The hotel is very clean, have great staff and a fantastic restaurant to sample real Russian food.

We liked our stay at the Helvetia much. The hotel is really good value for the money, the rooms are quite large, the bed was super large and the location is very good. The only unsatisfactory part was the super tiny bathroom. The service is great, very helpful staff.

We were staying at the Helvetia Hotel just off Nevskiy Prospekt during the eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull in april 2010.
Not only is this a charming hotel with all mod cons, they also have a warm welcoming and very helpful staff that helped us through the annoying Russian bureaucracy in order to get our visa prolonged.We couldn't have done it without their help.
The hotel itself has a historic feel and charm to it. Breakfast and dinner are being served in the adjacent cosy Marius café-restaurant. Metro is just around the corner.
Only drawback : during our stay some outside renovation works were being executed. That did spoil our stay a bit. We can highly recommend this hotel.

I typically stay in Helvita hotel while on business trip in Saint Petersburg. I have also tried a number of other hotels there.
Helvita staff are the best I have seen and the smile from early morning to late evening when you check in/out says it all. Besides, they provide breakfast as part of their rate and free wifi.
The hotel is about 50m from Nevsky prospect and even closer to a metro station. Stockmann and Galeria shopping centres are within 5 minutes walk on Nevesky prospect.
The restuarnt and the abr part of the hotel are also very good.

Room Tip: Make sure your room faces the court Yard and it is higher than 2nd floor.
