I went in january with my company for team building, the service is natural but great, food well presented and the room has good details, like binoculars to look to the mountains, and the view is unbeatable. I would recommend it

Rich in culture, this hotel offers comfortable accommodation. Traditional , with lots of wood. The restaurant served traditional swiss food and beverages. entertainment involved the crowd. You could have a go at blowing the long horn. Breakfast was full of amazing pastries, sausages and eggs, local jams and beverages. Friendly, helpful staff made our stay enjoyable. Easy to get to....

This hotel is reached by the Rigi cog-wheel railway, the oldest in Europe. One can either go up from Vitznau or from Arth-Goldau but the latter requires one change. The hotel is by the Staffelhöhe station, two stops from the top. If you have a Swiss Pass, Rigi travel is included. It is a haven of peace as no traffic... More

We stayed there for one night. It looks so amazing outside of the balcony in the early cold spring time. The hotel has service for offering hiking sticks and snow shoes. Before we started climbing Mt. Dosse, we asked for some hot-tea and bring it with us up to the mountain. After our hiking, there is a public showering room.... More

This is in an amazing location, high up on the mountainside and just next to the cog railway station. We had fabulous views from our balcony, down to Lake Lucerne and the snow-capped peaks on the other side. (Binoculars were provided in the room!) The room was traditionally styled, well equipped and very clean. Our only problem was that the... More

It is our second time that we stayed there last weekend. The first one was over New Year's Eve '11, now a long weekend in February '12. It sounds unreal, but we loved everything about both stays. The owner couple Gabriella and Gregor are truly amazing. Warm, loving, open and extremely service-oriented (like a hotel should be, but never really... More

We stayed as part if a walking holiday organised by Inn Travel. The location is stunning high on the mountain with superb views. We had a room in the original hotel building which was comfortable. Food was excellent and the staff very helpful.

As we were on a trip celebrating our first anniversary, we booked the "Romantic tete-a-tete in the mountains" package. Our entire experience at this hotel was amazing from start to finish. When we arrived Gabriella greeted us, and after introducing us to her husband who runs the hotel with her (Greggor) showed us to our room. We were competely blown... More

Just came back from a night at this hotel and wanted to make sure I created a review for them in Tripadvisor! By the way there are two entries for the hotel in Tripadvisor--I believe that "Hotel Edelweiss" and "Hotel Edelwiess Rigi" are the same. This hotel is alone at the Staffelhohe station of the Rigi Bahn. I'd had a... More
