Everything was perfect from the beginning to the end.
The staff is very friendly and caring about their customers. (I had ordered the shuttle between the airport and the hotel. My flight has changed because of weather conditions. The driver could not find me. The hotel took all actions to find me.. which was nice.. In fact my flight mlanded in a different airport!).
When you get in, eveybody is smilling. They offer you a drink (juice, sparling wine,or whatever).. There is a sparkling wine complementary bottle in the room.
The bed is perfect (I suffer from the back and hotels room are sometimes nightmare for me. This one was perfect).
I had dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and it was very good. A lot of choice.
Wifi is complementary and there are a lot of foreign channels on television (french channel which is not the case everywhere).
And last, but not least, checking in and oout were very quick.

Thank you to all at hotel Helvetia.

Helvetia is a really nice hotel in an old, early 19th century mansion in the city. The location is very good, just 100m away from Newski Prospect and the next underground station. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. Rooms are in very good shape and extremly clean. A special thing ( Ihave never seen in a hotel) is the pillow menu, you can chose out of a variety of different pillows! As the rooms are facing the inner court it is very silent. The breakfast is good, typical Russian with some heavy salty stuff as well as normal continental breakfast items. Only the scrambled eggs are really bad. We tested the restaurant Marius which is about average. If you want to go out for diner close to the hotel I can highly recommend the Orient Express which is about 100m down the road (away from Newski). All in all we had a very good and relaxing time there.

Very lovely hotel, good breakfast with a lot to chose, very good location and friendly staff who give you a warm welcome and a holiday feeling. They arranged a ballet show in the Hermitage theatre, which I can recommend to everyone.

The Hotel is ideally located at 3 minutes walking distance from the Nevskij Prospekt. Same distance to the nearest Metro Station making every possible destination very easy to reach. The personnel do not speak perfect english but they are very polite and available. Building is quite old looking but fascinating. Rooms are clean and have everything you may need.

We liked our stay at the Helvetia much. The hotel is really good value for the money, the rooms are quite large, the bed was super large and the location is very good. The only unsatisfactory part was the super tiny bathroom. The service is great, very helpful staff.

We were staying at the Helvetia Hotel just off Nevskiy Prospekt during the eruption of the Eyjafjallajökull in april 2010.
Not only is this a charming hotel with all mod cons, they also have a warm welcoming and very helpful staff that helped us through the annoying Russian bureaucracy in order to get our visa prolonged.We couldn't have done it without their help.
The hotel itself has a historic feel and charm to it. Breakfast and dinner are being served in the adjacent cosy Marius café-restaurant. Metro is just around the corner.
Only drawback : during our stay some outside renovation works were being executed. That did spoil our stay a bit. We can highly recommend this hotel.
