The location is superb - just next to Nevski Prospekt and metro. The room was huge, very clean and nice - excellent beds and they have even pillows´ menu. Very chique. Kind and helpful service. I really loved their breakfast - lot of different food and tasteful. You have a romantic atmosphere there :)

Stayed here with group (not my hotel choice). Comfortable rooms and courteous staff. Location slightly off-centre, not a problem for bus-based tours, and reflected in prices. Breakfast OK and well organised. Two linked optional restaurant/bars, good atmosphere but at best mediocre food. My only and minor reproach for a hotel in the 3+ star bracket (with aspirations to 4+) is...

When our Road Scholar tour switched us to this boutique hotel, I did a happy dance. Based on other TA reviews and the hotel's website, I had a feeling this was going to be a great choice. It absolutely was! As a solo female traveler coming in a day ahead of my tour, I had some trepidation regarding getting from...

This hotel has been such disappointment and it's spoiled my current stay in St. Petersburg. The rooms in the hotel are clean and well maintained, but.... first they book you in a single room with 2 persons which is already misleading. I didn't expect to stay in claustrophobic room in one bed with my colleagues... The room it's self is...

A smallish hotel with a nice courtyard for the few days weather is pleasant and distance from the street. Two on sit restaurants, helpful English speaking staff. Located quite centrally if you are trying to do anything other than walk up and down the sights of Nevsky Prospect, 2 blocks from Nevsky, 2 blocks from Galleria mall, and 2 blocks...

Excellent location in the heart of the city. Clean and cozy room. Good bathroom. Free wifi. Friendly staff. Good restaurant on site, open 24h. Excellent breakfast. The inconvenience was in elevator and floor mismatch due to the old architecture of the building.

Our threesome stayed one week at the Helvetia. Our rooms were modern, comfortable and quiet with an elevator that stopped at landings between floors. The Hotel’s location is excellent, about two blocks from the city’s main thoroughfare, Nevskiy Prospekt, with a convenient metro stop nearby and lots of tram service to the main sights of the central city.
