Reviewed 15 July 2013

Very nice charming hotel. Not far away from Nevsky Prospect and walking distance to metro stop, lots of buses connections.
Staff very friendly, can organize all excursion upon demand. Efficient staff at reception.

Convenient to train station, metro and major attractions. Updated rooms include heated bathroom floor and comfy bed. Fantastic breakfast included. Be sure to ask for real (ie not instant) coffee or espresso. A bit pricey at this time of year but we enjoyed the luxury. Helpful staff - no complaints from us.

We may be biased because we moved to Helvetia after a horrific check in at the Azimut, but this place felt like heaven in comparison. We could only get this place for two of our four nights in town, and we dreaded moving.

This is a classically lovely European hotel in a really good location, just a block from Nevskii Prospekt and a Metro station. And personnel here were exceptionally friendly and helpful. You walk through a lovely courtyard to get to the reception area. Breakfast area is elegant with a very generous choice of foods and beverages. We would love to return to this hotel on our next stay in St. Petersburg.

Possibly one of the most un-obliging places we have stayed in. My wife has dietary issues with gluten and dairy but they refused to provide anything that was not on their set menu - and this was after pre-advising of her needs and being told they would cater for her. The Deputy Manager was simply rude to us when we complained. The curtains in the bedrooms are very thin - indeed translucent, which is unhelpful this time of year when there are 21 hours of daylight. Whilst they have a non-smoking area in the restaurant it is sandwiched between two smoking areas. The ceilings in the restaurant are low with the result that the smoke drifts through the entire restaurant. Breakfasting in stale smoke was most unpleasant

Room Tip: Try another hotel

We recently stayed at the Helvetia hotel in St Petersburg for my wife's 40th Birthday.

The hotel is about 40 minutes from the airport and I would suggest booking your taxi from the desk in the arrivals hall (cost 900r )

The hotel doesn't look much from the road but as soon as you go through the iron gate you walk into a lovely courtyard where you can sit and have a drink.

The reception staff were excellent and we were quickly checked in and up to our room.

The room was spotlessly clean and very well appointed and was perfect for our short stay.

The hotel has 2 restaurants but e only ate at the Marisa's which was very good if not a little pricey.

The hotel is in an excellent location being a 40 minute walk to the Hermitage or 25 minutes to the church of the spilled blood, and I would recommend the walk as you pass dozens of shops, bars and spectacular architecture on your way.

All in all I would highly recommend my stay at this hotel and will definitely return for another weekend soon.

Very good experience. Staff, location, restaurants and history are the highlights of this very interesting and highly recommendable hotel. The only complaint refers to the size of the room. Too small for a taveler who was expecting low temperatures and packed with plenty and heavy clothes to face them.

Room Tip: Check if there are bigger rooms.

I went to St Petersburg for the first time in February this year. The experience at the hotel was fantastic. The staff was very friendly and they were eager to help us with our stay in the city. If they didn't have the answer immediately they knew how to get it. This covered information about the opera, busses, sites, restaurants, shopping and so on.

There are 2 restaurants in the hotel around the central courtyard. Both are very good. The staff in the restaurants were equally helpful and friendly. The food very good both for breakfast and dinner. The atmosphere good too.

The Helvetia building has a fascinating history which you can read about there.

The Hotel is situated very close to Nevsky Prospekt the main shopping street of St Petersburg, with good bus links and 3 subway stations.

I have traveled all over the world and I have stayed in many different types of hotels. This was one of the best experiences I've had. I recommend it highly.
