This hotel is conveniently located a short distance from the ferry terminal and the Rigi Bahn. Our room, while good sized, had way too much furniture, making it crowded. The bed was larger than needed. There were three chairs, a desk, coffee table, and tv stand. We had a nice balcony with an awning for shade but it was difficult... More

We have visited Vitnau for several years now and the Rigi hotel is alway our first stop when we arrive. The food is always fantastic and Linus and his team are always friendly and attentive, this is in our opinion the only place to eat or enjoy a cocktail in Vitznau.

We recently stayed at this hotel and found all of the staff to be very friendly and helpful. It is a small hotel, very pretty. When the weather is nice your meal is served on the terrace. We had a set menu but if there is anything on the menu that you don't like, they will find an alternative for... More

The location is awesome and the view is exquisite. We experienced snowfall and the view was awesome. We were informed that the view is even better in summers. If you have swiss pass, the train till Rigi is free. Take a boat from Luzern to Vitznau and then train till Rigi. Overall, easily worth it because of the location.

From the moment we arrived and were invited to park in the car park under the hotel until the time we left a week later we were looked after extremely well and we were happy to call the hotel "home". The hotel is right by the lake ferry terminal and the station for the cog railway up mount Rigi so... More

We stayed at Hotel Rigi for 3 nights. We are happy with their service. Room is big enough for both of us. They provided room cleaning service everyday. Location, the hotel is very near with the port for ferry to other towns and the train station to go up to Mt. Rigi is less than a minute walk from the... More

This hotel is situated in Viznau opposite the Ferry terminal which services the whole of Lake Lucerne and the Cog-Railway which travels to the top of Mount Rigi - two minutes walk to either service. The hotel staff are very polite, helpful, friendly and speak good English. Our room was very comfortable and clean with a shower.

Linus and his team are the perfect combination of professionalism and warmth. From the first greeting to the final farewell, nothing is too much trouble in this wonderful establishment. We were met by Linus himself, who showed us to our parking spot in the hotel's own underground car park and thence to our room, (56) - go for it if... More

My husband and I and our 2 adult daughters stayed at the lovely Hotel Rigi for 2 nights during our recent Swiss holiday. We had wanted to visit Mt Rigi and Lucerne and the location of the hotel was just perfect. The boat dock, bus stop and Cog-wheel train station to Mt Rigi were all very close to the hotel.... More
