The Helvetia Hotel was opened in 2003, in a mansion built in the 18th century and reconstructed in the middle of the 19th century by the famous St.Petersburg architect Augusto Lange. The hotel is situated in the centre of the city. Immediate vicinity to the main artery of the city - Nevsky avenue - allows to take promenades to most of places of interest, administrative and office buildings. Besides, there are three metro stations at 500 metres from the hotel (Ploschad Vosstaniya, Mayakovskaya and Dostoyevskaya), which allow to get to almost all parts of the city within 20 minutes.
After restoration and reconstruction of the architectural complex in 1999-2003, the hotel became "a piece of Switzerland" maintaining noble signs of St.Petersburg style.
