Old world charm for a great price at this hotel. Friendly front desk agent, too. View of the lake is incredible on a gorgeous day from the lovely balcony. We arrived by train and it was about a 10-15 minute walk. The casino was across the street and visible from our room.

Has been rebranded as J8 Hotels so that is the more prominent signage. A grand old dame that has fallen on hard times,some original features remain. She would have been quite a beauty in her youth.

We spent two nights here to visit the Christmas markets. This hotel must have been really grand in its prime and although it's now somewhat faded it has held some charm. The reception staff were friendly and the lift up to the rooms is an experience, if you go here you'll see what I mean. Our room on the fourth...

Very expensive, rooms very old fashioned (not in a good way). Shower had no fitting to hold nozzle above head, and shower room ridiculously small. No safe in room or reception. My friend had passport stolen from room. Hotel helpful in pointing way to police station, but made no effort to search for it or ask their cleaners about it,...

The hotel is located in the middle of the main areas of the city. The hotel has seen its best days and desperately need an upgrade. There is no isolation between the rooms and the corridors so you can hear everything. However there are new beds and they are very comfy. It's clean and staff is friendly. Convenient parking nearby...

I liked Hotel Helvetie very much. Other reviews criticized it for being past its prime; but then so am I. For me, it was a perfect hotel in a perfect location. I'd go back any time! I liked that it was so close to Freddie Mercury's statue and to the casino that held Freddie's birthday bash - not to mention...

Stayed for 1 night as part of golden pass rail tour. This is an older hotel which would've been very grand in its day. Our room was very large with comfortable beds but no a/c, which was needed but there was a fan and being on a higher floor meant we were happy to leave the large windows open. Great...

We stayed here last year and decided to book as soon as we got home. This hotel is perfectly placed for our needs. It is across the road from the Casino which is where there was a big Freddie Mercury party and it is a 5-10 minute walk from the Freddie Mercury statue and the lake. We were checked in...

The hotel was located fairly close to the railway station and to shops and restaurants. The staff were helpful. The rooms were nice with high ceilings but the ensure was very small with a tiny shower. There were no facilities for making tea or coffee which we have come to expect. The breakfast was quite good.
