The staff is very nice and helpful. The restaurant is very good. The location is great next to Mt. Rigi and the boat to Lucerne, that makes the access very easy. Ideal for visiting Mt, Rigi and the lake area. It is a nice and quiet village, you can spend a great time if you just sit on the lake's... More

This was quite a last minute trip to escape the rain in England. I research several hotels but kept coming back to this one and I was very pleased I did. The location is perfect very close to the lake and so convenient for transport to other places. Rooms were ideal for a couple and generous in size. We initially... More

We have stayed at the Hotel Rigi 4 times, most recently this past September. This is a wonderful hotel, run by a genial host, Linus, in the very charming village of Vitznau. The rooms are very comfortable some with lake views and balconies. Access to Lucerne is easy either by lake steamer or bus/train combination, and the train to Mount... More

Room small but comfy.Would have sacrificed the TV for tea/coffee making facility in our room.Good bar downstairs where you can have a cigarette inside! Would recommend the hotel as a good... More

I was in Lucerne for 3 days with one child 6 years of age, and i was looking for a central hotel of good value. This hotel is beautifully located...you disembark the boat taxi and it is right there... No walking! Good views, the restaurant open all day, good menu, and a few metres from the mt rigi train.... also... More

The room faced the peaceful lake, which was already worth staying in this hotel. Besides the view and the tranquility, the room was very clean and spacious, and the beds were very comfortable. The noises from the corridor were minor, however there is a frequent bell ringing at the nearby church; i got used to it and it wasn't a... More

My very elderly parents and various members of our family were visitors to hotel rigi over many years. We all enjoyed every minute of our time in this hotel. On one occasion my father became very ill. The kindness and care shown by the owners has become a legend in our family. I still have the letter my mother wrote... More

There's nothing we would want to change about this gem of a hotel, situated in the very centre of Vitznau with good views over Lake Lucern. It's a self-assured place that isn't trying too hard but all staff interested in our well-being and enjoyment of our stay. Parking was available in a locked garage, rooms with views over the lake...

My husband and I spent Christmas 2012 at the Rigi, we had a lovely room overlooking Lake Lucern it was fairly small, spotlessly clean and appeared to have been newly up-dated. The beds were a delight to sleep on too. The staff were all very friendly and helpful to us, we could not have asked for more. We did not... More
