We stayed here on the first night of our walking tour of the Appenines and it was lovely. Very friendly welcome for the reception staff and a beautiful and very comfortable room. The hotel has an absolutely gorgeous spa and all the public areas are also very elegant. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and again all the staff very welcoming...

- very clean / friendly staff - Wellnessarea is quite small (only 3 small rooms) but beautiful - for information you have to wear a swimming cap in the pool - location is ok when you want to have a very quiet holiday and just relax - to expensive

Hotel has nice beds. Noisy rooms due to the tile rooms. As a result night owls and early flight catchers, conference callers @ night will wake you up. Restaurant has very good photographer. Taste is average but hardly alternatives in town. Employees are very helpful. Do not expect too much for the food. SPA is nice

Staff is nice and helpful - only one minor glitch at check-out about a discounted price for a massage. We had Dinner and Breakfast at the restaurant - food is excellent, with lots of...

We drove to Hotel Helvetia from Siena to rendezvous with friends without knowing much about the hotel or Porretta Terme. It was a nice break from our sightseeing in the bigger cities. We enjoyed the hot pools and our massages, and the dinner in the restaurant was excellent.

Hotel Helvetia is wonderful place to stay if you like terme. It is located in the charming small town in the middle of Apennines, little bit longer than 1h driving from Bologna & Florence (train to Bologna Centrale -1h15'). The service was perfect. All employees both in the front desk and restaurant are extremely friendly. The spa is absolutely amazing...

I cannnot recommed this hotel enough. I was there for the Porretta Soul Festival. The spa is the perfect complement to the festival. Stay cool in the water during the hot days, and then enjoy the music at night.
