Pleasant hotel with a deceivable little foyer. Bar staff were pleasant and drinks we're not over priced. The room was clean and pleasant and felt modern. Maybe a little small. The Spa and Pool was beautiful and is carved into the mountain side.

We stayed at this hotel and we loved it. But The only downside is if you have to travel to big cities by train -example, Florence- you have to return early, otherwise there is no chance to find a train to Porreta Terme after 7pm.

I would recommend Hotel Helvetia to anyone who is interested in a comfortable Spa vacation in the cold season in a charming small town. I visited with my daughter as s special get-away and we loved our short stay. Very flexible staff and great hours of spa, restaurant and check-out.

I have been going to Hotel Helvetia and Spa for several years now; it's my favorite place to go to escape the coldness of winter in Bologna. But I have noticed that there have been some changes since the last time I was there. New management, perhaps? First, you are now required to wear bathing caps in the pool, but...

A fleeting visit, staying only one night, with not even time to use the lovely-looking spa or gym. The staff are helpful and very nice. Our room was large and comfortable. Breakfast was plentiful and typical of breakfasts in Italy. The dining room was just too brightly lit to consider it for dinner - get a dimmer switch!

This was the beginning of our Apennines hike and it was wonderful to step off the train from Bologna and see our beautiful hotel!

This hotel is awesome, very clean and comfortable rooms, the staff are always friendly and helpful and eager to please. Restaurant offers a high quality and varied menu and the bar terrace is the perfect place to relax with a nice chilled beer or glass of wine. Breakfast is simple but plentiful and the coffee always fresh.
