Take a Walk Back in Time at the Hotel Helvetia in Venice

What Does a Hotel Helvetia Room Include?

Located in a four-story building in an amazing location, Hotel Helvetia has offered its charm to guests since the early 1900s. There are 50 rooms ranging in size from a standard double room to a family room with four twin beds. Some rooms even come with a small balcony with majestic views of the lagoon and St. Mark's Square.

What Amenities are Available?

While Hotel Helvetia is one of the older hotels in Venice, you certainly won't be able to tell from all the amenities that are offered. The rooms are air conditioned and come with a private shower, bathtub, or you can choose to have both. If you are concerned about staying in touch with family or friends back home, then no worries. Wi-Fi is offered throughout the hotel, and rooms come with satellite TV so you can stay up to date with news, sports, or just enjoy a movie during a relaxing night in.

What are the Rates Like?

Hotels in Venice can be expensive, but the Hotel Helvetia is quite affordable. An economy double room will start at about €70 (about $77) per night. If you need a little more space and prefer a view of the lagoon outside however, then expect to pay upwards of €100 (about $109) per night.

What's There to Do Nearby?

The fantastic location is one of the biggest draws to Hotel Helvetia. The water bus station is mere steps away from the hotel, which means that getting anywhere in Venice will be a breeze. There is no need to take the water bus every time you leave the hotel, though, because the Adriatic Sea, beaches, and the Palazzo del Cinema are just a short walk away. Many restaurants (gelato, anyone??) and shops are within walking distance as well.

Is There Continental Breakfast at Hotel Helvetia?

Continental breakfast is included with the room price. You will enjoy Italian cheeses, meats, yogurt, and more in the breakfast hall. If you get a bit thirsty after exploring Venice all day, Hotel Helvetia also has a garden bar area that serves cocktails from 4:00-10:00 PM daily.

What's the Bottom Line?

Hotel Helvetia will allow you to take a walk back in time, while enjoying modern-day amenities and one of the best locations of any other hotel in Venice.
