Enjoyed our stay here. Staff were very helpful. Rooms comfortable and we were able to walk to many of the landmarks. On a Main Street but the rooms are set well back and it wasn’t noisy even with the windows open.

Hotel has 2 restaurants with entrance from the hotel courtyard as well. Included breakfast was sumptuous. Had typical Russian dumplings for dinner. It was excellent too.
Kingsize bed and the pillows were so comfy
Internet works great
Elevator is available

Room Tip: Reception very friendly and helpful. Can't tell which room would be quiet or not. I had a very quiet room with a high king size bed .

It takes a lot to give a hotel a 5 Star rating, and I have never done it before, but the Helvetia deserves it. From our arrival when you are offered complementary drinks of water, fruit juice or champagne to the time you leave, nothing is too much. The staff are the backbone to any hotel with the amenities adding or deducting from the experience, and it is here that the Helvetia shines. The reception staff are knowledgeable, courteous and friendly, and obviously have a passion for their job. Special mention however, needs to be made of Ilya, the concierge, who is willing to do anything possible to make your stay more memorable. Local restaurants to be recommended, shops, tickets, tours; you name it, he can find it and organise it for you. A restaurant reservation? Done. Awesome job sport!
To give you an idea of the quality of service that this place offers; one of my friends I was travelling with wanted to see the cruiser, ‘Aurora’ and the hotel arranged a taxi for him to get there. When he returned the reception staff asked him how it was and when he informed them that it was shut he later received a complementary pate and biscuits by way of an apology for them not having found that out and informed him prior to his going. There certainly aren’t that many hotels where you will get that!
Easy walking distance to so much of St Petersburg, comfortable rooms with a choice of pillows, good local knowledge and an awesome staff. Very well done guys!

The Helvetia Hotel is conveniently located just off Nevsky Prospect, within reasonable walking distance of the key attractions in old town St Petersburg. The staff is friendly and welcoming, starting with a flute of champagne as my wife and I checked in! We found Ilya at the concierge desk especially skilled and helpful to us as we made arrangements to take the hydrofoil to Peterhof, arranged tickets to the Hermitage, found restaurants, and several other personal requests. We arrived three days before the rest of our tour group, so we were pleased to have Ilya's help to make our first experiences even more wonderful than we had hoped!

We are a married couple on our first trip to st Petersburg without language knowledge.The hotel Helvetia was ordered by our travelling agent, and was a very positive experience!
Situated close to Nevski prospekt ca 3 km from the Heremitage, perfect to walk along the Nevski.
The staff are very friendly and made appointments, found adresses and fixed taxis . The room was clean with everything in good order included TV and internet. The beds were good!! The breakfast was relatively rich and varied. We rally recommend this hotel!
