The Helvetia Hotel is located in a building which goes back to the early 19th Century so one has a sense of old St Petersburg whilst staying there. I liked especially the welcome on arrival with a glass of sparkling wine given whilst the reservation details were being completed.
Rooms are very comfortable and roomy and well appointed with robe/slippers and other small extras provided.
Staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is excellent with a good choice at the buffet.
There are two restaurants where the food selection is very good.
The location is central very near to the Metro and a major rail station and within walking distance of some other attractions..
.Excellent and numerous restaurants in the immediate neighbourhood.
Hotel shuttle available to and from the airport at a reasonable fee.
