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

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
