Me and my girlfriend spent one night at this hotel and if we could decide again to stay there or not - we definitely would not. It started during dinner..almost every waiter that brought us drinks or food was quite clumsy, forgot who ordered what, ... When we got the bill we had to make corrections because it wasn't right.Before... More

If you like a hotel to be charming but not flashy, if you like that feeling of generations before you who have enjoyed the wonderful views and now it is your turn to marvel, then you have come to the right place!;It is lovely. Many of the rooms have a balcony, either private or a large one that is shared,... More

We loved it here. Our waiter was awesome and funny (blond guy). He ran his feet of to serve all the outside tables! And the food was excellent. Look forward to a future visit here. I had the schnitzel with a Swiss cola :). Recommend to come here after your trip up Mt. Riggi with the cog wheel.

That was the case with this hotel.Large spacious reception rooms , more like a club or a library. We had a nice room overlooking the lake and the mountains with a small balcony.

A very pleasant place to stay, my room was comfortable for a single traveller with access to the terrace overlooking Lake Lucerne. The guest lounges were wonderful, old style family country house with historic furniture. Good food in a great dining room with fabulous views. Very helpful staff, worth a visit, Vitznau and nearby Weggis are charming Swiss villages. There... More

The location of the restaurant is great: right next to where you arrive by boat and cross the street to get to the Rigi-Bahn, there it is: the restaurant "Terrasse am See", where you can eat outside, below the trees. So the location, the play to enjoy a nice sunny summer-day is wonderful. The prices for the food however, they... More

This small hotel is located right on the lake. The famous white tourist boats stop in front and the famous old Rigi Bahn station is just next. Great views, cosy rooms. The hotel is member of the Swiss Historic Hotels and therefore, expect a touch of nostalgic effects. Friendly staff and owners. Only had breakfast which was OK but is... More

A historic hotel sits right on the lake at the bottom station of the oldest european rack railway to the Mt Rigi - which is the only little disadvantage if you get a room facing the depot because they start shunting at around 5 AM... otherwise unbeatable offer: stylish historic interiors, dedicated staff, delicious restaurant overlooking the sea, especially the...
