We were at Mt Rigi - close to the top - Rigi Kulm. Reached there by train - it was an excellent ride up to Rigi Kulm. This hotel has a self service restaraunt where we got good pasta (CHF 17.8) and soup (~ CHF 9) which is good for Switzerland prices. The size of the helping was good. It... More

True, location-wise, the Rigi is still the queen of the Swiss mountain range around Lucerne! But "royal" are also the admission prices to the top especially if one does not own a Swiss half-price travel pass. Well, nobody is forced up there, but still... The real cheek, however, is the choice and quality of food: an industrially breadcrumbed and prefried... More

Went there for lunch after hiking to Mt. Rigi. The view from the hotel is spectacular. They don't have any vegetarian options as all, and even snacks are priced way high. Its good place to have drink or coffee.

Rigi kulm hotel We reached here at 12.15 as it was all foggy and cloudy we thought of having a quick grab. The vegetable soup with bread was very good and was appropriate for the weather. The French fires also good. The hotel had a clean toilet facility and the lift takes you directly to the station.

We visited the hotel, not for the first time, for lunch only, after our trip with friends up the Mount Rigi using the railway. It was a quiet day up there because of the fog, only others who had no alternative but to visit on that particular day were there. So, the huge sun terrace went unused, the large inside... More

Stayed for 3 nights with the family. Hotel rooms, recently remodeled, are comfortable and offer incredible views. Arrived in foggy weather but then the weather cleared - breathtaking! The food and service in the restaurant is top notch. Breakfast buffet is rich with offerings from the local farmers. Come evening, the hotel atmosphere turns to a luxuries relaxing quietness. We...

A real treat - the only hotel right on the peak of Mount Rigi. Very expensive - but worth every rupee! We arrived when it was completely fogged up - we couldn't even see 2 feet ahead. This was disappointing. But the next morning it cleared a bit, allowing us a chance to get a great view and a better... More

View is breathtaking.Getting there is also not much of a problem. There is a tunnel on the railway station itself whereby you can take a lift directly to the Hotel Lobby. The rooms are very well laid out and the hotel has 2 restaurants with excellent food.

went for three days on a business meeting. really cold and foggy so no views which was a shame. the staff are awesome, nothing too much trouble even at 0200 when the firewood needed topping up. take a sledge ride, it is a dramatic bit of fun! The hotel can help you out as well.

this place is amazing, very old hotel located on the top of the rigi, you have a amazing view and such a relaxing atmosphere. Unfortunately the food is somehow as expected, basic, tasteless and over priced like every touristic area....
