Hotel Helvetia
Ranked #29 of 33 Hotels in Lido di Venezia
Reviewed 7 October 2017

Room was very basic, door did not fit properly huge gap showed light from corridor showing through all night/. Walls thin so able to hear ALL noises from adjoining room and bathroom which was not pleasant. Mattress on bed was ok but pillows lumpy and uncomfortable. Balcony outside with NO access. View over back of restaurants and rooftops was not pleasant. Bathroom tiny and narrow. The only saving graces of this tired and depressing hotel was that the staff were friendly and very pleasant, the bedding was changed every day and the location to the water bus and transport stop was excellent. The beach at the end of the road would have been lovely but only 2nd week of September and it was closed so no access to sunbeds or parasols even tho the weather was still good. Breakfast at the hotel was adequate but many things were frequently being run out of including crockery and food. The coffee machine was useless, half cups of beverages produced which were practically cold, lukewarm at best. The sitting areas of the reception was depressingly dark, faded and basic. Television in the rooms was basic, only English speaking programmes being BBC News and CNN. A shame as so well situated it could be an absolute gem.

Room Tip: All tired and in need of redecorating and refurnishing.

To be honest, the ratio between what is offered and the price is a bit out of balance. Then again, Venice in general is rather expensive.

Location is great, right at the vaporetto station and on the main road.
Room very clean but rather simple and too early check out at 11am. Was not possible to stay one more hour in the room. Rooms facing the main road have a great view at the laguna, but also rather noisy. Better ask for a room facing to another side.
Would I stay again? Probably for a short 1-2 night stay, just for the location.

Third visit to this nice traditional hotel, friendly staff and a quirky interior. The garden out the back is nice to have access to. Centrally located across from the boat. Room rates are excessively expensive during the film festival and the breakfast isn't great. Friendly staff.

Close to the film festival and the waterbuses. Small room, but it has air conditioning. Nice staff.beware of the mosquitoes though, in venice. They are awful! All in all: A great place to stay while attending the film festival:-)

The hotel has a nice location, close to the beach and the ferry to Venice.
Pricing is ok for Lido which tends to be camparatively high anyway.

Rooms are quite small and a little hard to move around in. Breakfast is rather expensive at 15euro per person per day when you can just walk down the street and have a nice breakfast for half the price.

The rooms are cleaned daily but carpet on the floor still needs to be changed.
An ok stay which ticks the basics but does little to excel.
