    Great hotel, very attentive staff, good location

    Compact, central, very helpful staff, excellend bar and restaurant combined.

    The tram passing close to the hotel causes a bit of a rumbling noise - but one does get used to it easily!

    Hotel Helvetia is a very hip and trendy establishment that blends the historical feel and contemporary urban look seamlessly. The rooms are relatively spacious with generous bath room. All the amenities are also brand new and spotlessly clean. In terms of location, the hotel is 1 minute away from the Selnau Station and well connected by several tram lines. Last but not least, the warm and friendly staff really complete the wonderful experience in Hotel Helvetia.

    Great boutique hotel, very convenient location

    Rooms were a little overheated & noise of tram outside might disturb the light sleeper

    Very nice clean rooms. Loved the bathroom. Good value for money.

    TV was off the hinges. Entrance to hotel is either through the restaurante (everybody eating!) or side door. The side door isn't very cozy/warm, but once you get to your floor, the hotel is really nice and worth the stay.
