Within a leisurely stroll from Nevsky Prospect there is a historic building of the Helvetia Hotel, with origins dating back to the early 19th century. The hotel's interiors successfully combine St. Petersburg's harmonious style with the elegance of European design. Native Russian cordiality, coupled with Swiss traditions of cosiness and hospitality, individual attention to every guest and international service standards, are the distinguishing features of the Helvetia Hotel.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

If I could give more stars to this hotel I would. Everything was just PERFECT. The property is located 2 blocks away from Nevsky Prospect. You can tell that staff takes pride in working there and providing the best service possible. Everyone we dealt with went an extra step for us. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Quality of food for breakfast was exceptional. I usually don't like eating at restaurants at the hotel but I am glad we did. Food was delicious and reasonably priced. They send you off with a little bag filled with "pirozhki". I can't wait to come back soon. Thank you for such wonderful experience.

Many thanks for the help that you were able to give to me at a time when the hotel was very busy with the film crew. The flexibility and assistance was fantastic particularly as the clients that I was meeting had to change dates and times once or twice. Staff always smiling and friendly many many thanks

The attention given by the staff was from the first moment on excellent and acommodating. Although I was there for a short stay, I felt very welcome. The location of the hotel is perfect, as it it is very close from the train station and from Nevsky Prospekt. The room was clean and comfortable. If I can highlight one staff member, it is Maryna at the reception, who was very kind and helpful.

This place differs from most big ftime ve star hotels in that that is managed on a day to day basis by its owner Yunis. Extremely friendly, highly communicable and approachable he seems to be able to pay his personal attention to almost every guest. As a result of his energy this hotel has its own “soul” which is felt everywhere. Top notch friendliness and customer service from the entire team - room service, reception, restaurants - everything is next to perfect. Outstanding brand chef makes great meals whether it be meat or fish or poultry. We were absolutely thrilled by the place and will be definitely staying here on all our future trips to St. Pete. Yunis - personal thank you.

Everything from arrival to the last “Good Bye” was outstanding. The quality of service and attention to details makes this hotel a very special place…I’ve stayed in many hotels in the past during my visits to 65 different countries over the last 25 years. A few I will remember for sure. Helvetia stole my heart ❤️. I will always refer my friends and colleagues to you… Can’t wait for my next visit.

Indeed, this place takes care to a whole new level. We felt our every need was paid attention to without ever crossing personal boundaries. The place is beautiful and it has an atmosphere of a family and a club. I could also see how much attention was payed to good quality pillows, bed, blankets to make sleep super comfortable.

We will come back - definitely! The location was central and very close to Nevskiy, but with much less people and cars. The service was great. Breakfast and kitchen was tasty. Only, the steak was better at "Marius", compared to Claret.;)
