We stayed at the Helvetia Hotel in June 2012. It was pleasant, clean and well kept. The staff was friendly and helpful. The front desk staff spoke SOME English. The rooms were small by American standards but nicely furnished and decorated. The free WIFI in the room was a plus as was the courtyard and the breakfast buffet that came...

We stayed at the Helvetia for a three day weekend in May 2012 with our two year old twin sons. We had never traveled to Russia before and were surprised by how high the prices were, and it seemed that the Helvetia was fairly centrally located at a reasonable price; we were not disappointed. The Helvetia is right off Nevsky...

We stayed six nights at the Hotel Helvetia and overall were very pleased with it. Had it not been for the poor service and value for money at the hotel's two restaurants, one of which was particularly expensive for what was served, we would rate it 'excellent', due to the comfortable and quiet rooms but most of all the reception...

Thoroughly enjoyed this hotel, the rooms are a bit small but that is the only criticism. The restaurant is excellent and the service from all departments was top class. We had a bit of difficulty trying to make the Wi-Fi work on my Blackberry and the receptionist wasn't the most techno savvy. In the end we gave up and they...

The location of the hotel is good, there are a lot of cafes and even a 24-hours supermarket near it. The metro station is close to the hotel too. The room was big and comfortable. But the main thing that I didn't like in this hotel is that the prices don't prove the quality of service. There were some facts...

We stayed here on the recommendation of our tour operator and were delighted with it in nearly every respect. Our only slight issue was we found it a bit far from the main tourist attractions as the start of the City Centre is some ten minutes walk away and the Hermitage is a good half hour away on foot. Having...

Helvetia is a charming little hotel. We loved out stay there, and we loved St. Petersburg. Unlike Moscow, it is a city with a soul. At check in, we were welcomed very warmly.

We stayed at the Helvetia Hotel on the recommendation of a cousin who is from St. Petersburg. The hotel was in a good location for us, close to the Nevsky Prospekt, easy to catch buses and close to shopping.

I can recommend the Helvetia Hotel. We were immediately given a room with a kitchen and dining area, which was great. Staff were friendly and helpful and the two restaurants linked to the hotel are both great after a busy day. The receptionists provided us with a good guide to take us to the Hermitage for a very reasonable price....

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.
