4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

Lovely place stayed here last year and liked it enough to rebook it. It's an ideal place to stay very near the vaporetti and a lovely beach so you have the best of both culture and beach what more can anyone want. It is a clean and breakfast is lovely in the garden or inside love it.

We had a lovely few days in Venice and I would definitely recommend this hotel as it was very good value for money, it has the charm of an older hotel, we stayed on room only basis, the rooms were spotlessly clean and ours was very spacious, it was in an excellent position close to the vaporetto station. Great relaxed atmosphere on Lido and lovely beaches which was a pleasant contrast after the hustle and bustle in Venice itself.

Room Tip: If you like to sleep in later than 8 am ask not to be put in a room next to where the cleaners base...

Hotel Helvetia is an older motel but very well kept and maintained. From an American's standpoint (I am but I have EU citizenship too), the rooms may be small or older looking style wise. However, I wouldn't let that deter you. It's very clean and taken care of - not old looking or run down. The staff was great and very friendly. VERY convenient to the water taxi dock - about 1/8 of a mile. And it's located on the main street with other hotels, restaurants, etc. Lido is a VERY nice island - nice retreat from the hustle and bustle of Venice and certainly much cheaper. I'd certainly stay there again. I'd give it 4.5/5 - overall rating - value, convenience, staff, etc.

The negative reviews on trip adviser, made us nervous about staying here , and we where very pleasantly surprised
Last year we stayed at Le Boulevard Hotel 4 star down the road, Hotel Helvetia this year should have 4 stars, friendly clean , bigger rooms, better breakfast , all round excellent service at this hotel , and will definitely stay here next year again,
The lady on reception , very friendly, the gentlemen on reception very friendly afternoon and evening staff, Breakfast staff excellent and friendly, I would definitely stay here and recommend to everyone, We stayed in room 2, air con excellent ceiling fan excellent
the previous negative reviews , do not do this hotel justice and should be taken with a pinch of salt

Room Tip: room 2 is good but if you stay on a Saturday do not expect to sleep before 12 as there is a band qui...

Having visited the Lido many times now and stayed in varied standards of hotels on the island. The Hotel Helvetia is clean well run hotel in a perfect location a minute from the main vaporetti point for all services to the Grand Canal and the Alilaguna direct boat service to Venice Marco Polo Airport. The room allocated (No 57) was clean air conditioned which was needed as we had high humidity and though at the top of the hotel worth it for the views of the lagoon. Breakfast is pretty basis but all in all a good choice for those on a budget.

Room Tip: Room 57 is set on the top floor and needs an elevator and some stairs to reach it, however worth it...

The staff at the desk and serving breakfast were very helpful and breakfast was something to look forward to each morning! The breakfast staff and breakfast was actually superb! Our room #7 had a nice view over the street in front of the hotel. The air conditioner was a blessing from the heat of the day for the bedroom, but we needed to keep the bathroom door closed as it was HOT inside the bathroom. We think the hot water element was in the wall by the sink and window as that wall was hot and so heated the bathroom. Our room had two roll away cots/beds to serve our family of four and one daughter found the cot very uncomfortable.
All said, I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

We found the free parking mentioned for our car down the road along the swimming beach about a 7 minute walk from the hotel. The public water fountain on the right side of that walk is a good place to fill your water bottle. Be sure to ask the desk staff questions as they have lots of good information to share.. .and if you drive, be sure to make ferry reservations a day ahead of time so you don't have to wait in line to leave Lido...it was a great place to visit.

Room Tip: we liked our room #7 for view , but the hot bathroom was sort of an issue.

The Venice Lido, and particularly the Hotel Helvetia, is the best place to return back to after a hectic day in crowded Venice. The Hotel is always welcoming, and calm, and the little town is so pleasant to stroll around in the evening. There are lots of nice little cafes and restaurants, to suit all pockets, and the view across to St. Mark's Square is wonderful.
The vaporetto ride is only about 10 minutes across to near St, Mark's, or get off at Arsenale, and it is a lovely walk along the Riva.
