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.

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.;)

Unfortunately, despite a comfortable (but expensive) stay, the review reflects the policy of charging foreign guests for registration. Now, all hotels are obligated to register guests every stay, yet this is always free. Having stayed in hotels all over Russia for the past 4 years, registration has never been added to the final bill. This is quite clearly discriminatory against foreigners and a way to make a quick buck from foreign guests. Despite the fee only being 400RUB per person ($11 in total), it is the principle of charging high paying guests for a service that is both the hotel's responsibility and something they can do for free. Furthermore, an email sent to Helvetia to explain the situation was met with a standard reply, defending its policy without any real substance. Very disappointing customer service (and discrimination against foreigners) Helvetia.

That's a very cozy and silent place in the very center of the city. The people are doing their best to make all the subtle nuances of comfort to be take into account, and these are really taken without any allusion to obsessive attention.
