“Relaxed Week End”
Reviewed 29 August 2012

Last week end my wife and I had a really relaxed time at the Gerbi in Weggis, a beautiful landscape on the lake of Luzern in central Switzerland. We gave preferance to this hotel, because the weather forecast was not very good. The hotel disposes of an excellent wellness area with indoor pool and in addition to that as a guest of the hotel you enjoy free entrance at the little public indoor pool just across the street. Fortunately the weather was better than the forecast and we could enjoy swimming in the lake, using the "beach" facilities of the hotel. The rooms are quite big and comfortable.
Despite the rain in the evening, we had an excellent dinner on the protected terrace. We have to point out the high standard of the cuisine which offered a superb menu.
We really had a very good time there.

Room Tip: Superior Room on the lake side

I stayed at the Hotel Gerbi for 4 nights in July. It's a nice hotel in a nice location. I had a room with a balcony overlooking the lake and the room was nice and large. There are 2 restaurants and a bar on site. There is also a spa area that is shared with the Hotel Alexander. The spa area was nice, but what I didn't like was that it didn't open until 2:00 in the afternoon. One of the days was rainy and it would've been great to go to the spa that day since it wasn't nice outside, but they don't open the facilities until the afternoon. Everyone at the front desk was nice except for the owner. I ran into her several times and she was never friendly. On this particular trip to Switzerland I was suprised at how nice everyone was -- in past trips, people were a lot more formal/private. But on this trip, everyone was nice -- except for this one woman. She always seemed to be too busy to be bothered. Also, keep in mind that the hotel sits on a street, so you will get street noise in the a.m. There's also a public pool across the street and one morning I was awakened by a pack of loud school children lining up outside waiting to go in. Finally, there was a family with kids staying in the room next door and I could hear their conversations coming up through the drain in the bathtub -- weird! But I did like the hotel, the rooms, the on-site restaurant and would stay there again. It wasn't the most memorable hotel experience I've ever had, but it was nice enough to return.

We spent three nights at this lovely facility. Rooms, small but comfortable. Service is outstanding. Restaurant also was excellent.
The onsite owners keep the standard of excellence apparent. The sister facility next door the Alexander, also has a terrific restaurant. Spa facilities are excellent, but the pool a bit small.

My family stayed for 2 nights in late August at Hotel Gerbi. This was our last leg of our 11 day Europe trip and therefore needed to stay close driving distance to Zurich airport to fly home (about 1 hour away). Upon our arrival we were happily upgraded to a 4 BR apartment for our family of 5 – more than enough space. Great views of Lake Lucerne from our terrace. Hotel is situated virtually on the lake separated by a small road. Had access to the beach as the hotel gave us passes to a private beach club at the lake, which included access to an indoor pool. The other indoor pool is at the sister hotel Alexander – the conditions in the indoor pool though was not desirable as it was very hot and humid. Overall hotel service was good as it is a family run hotel (2 brothers run Gerbi and Alexander). I was happy that the hotel provided free transportation to other parts of town (to Rigi Cable car and boat dock). Breakfast was good and hotel accommodated us for early 6:30 AM breakfast before our departure to the airport. Definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Make sure to get a Lake view.

We returned to the Alexander as we stayed here last year and were impressed. This year we booked a lake-view room which was well worth the extra. The balconies are totally private and an excellent spot from which to watch the paddle-steamers (or the storms - we weren't blessed with good weather!) Our room was clean and comfortable - we slept very well.
The food is excellent. We chose to eat on the verandah every evening (even during the rainstorms); the service was friendly and efficient - we were never kept waiting for a course, but were given the option of "a break". Breakfast offers a good range of foods, our only complaint being that the cheese and cold meats need to be covered - there always seem to be flies around them!
The public areas are comfortable and quiet but have a cosy atmosphere created by the Hasler family's parrot and Stan on the piano! The owners are ever-present, working alongside their staff, and the reception staff are friendly and welcoming.
The hotel facilities are good, with an outdoor and indoor pool, a gym and a very relaxing spa area.
The hotel is not in the centre of town, but neither is it that far away; in our rush to catch the paddle-steamer, we walked the distance in just over 10 minutes. If this is a problem, guests of the Alexander have free use of the Lido bus. We felt that the quiet nights were due to the hotel's location.
We will definitely visit Weggis again and stay at the Alexander.

Sometimes last-minute breaks mean compromising on hotels - taking what is available. I chose Hotel Gerbi because it had its own beach for swimming in the lake and looked quite pleasant. I didn't like the look of its sister hotel, the Alexander, but thought perhaps that had modern chic. Although we'd been to Weggis before, we'd never gone by the Gerbi. I realized that it was a bit far from the centre, past the Parkhotel. But the Parkhotel isn't that close (yet wonderful), and in my imagination the Gerbi would be maybe not quite so wonderful, but still a lovely lakeside hotel.

On arrival, we were very disappointed. The walk was that bit too far, I found the road and parking between the hotels and the lake unappealing, and we weren't rewarded with hotel charm or ambiance, neither there nor at the Alexander - disappointing for a romantic long weekend. The highlight was the food, particularly dinner, which was very good indeed.

Weggis is lovely in the summer, a treat to be near Lucerne for the music festival or just city-wandering, but away from the crowds of tourists. There is good, relaxing hiking at the Rigi above Weggis, and the fun of taking boats - hopefully paddle steamers - everywhere. One doesn't think of the alps as hot, even in the summer, but can get hot in Weggis, though swimming in the lake is a joy.

we were looking for a place where to spend a few days after a very busy year, without travelling too far away from home (Milan) and with a few excursions available in the vicinities.
Gerbi hotel was selected on the internet because of its location on the lake of lucerne, good services (wellness center) and in an elegant but not overcrowded location.
Gerbi hotel is a very good choice under all points of view, including the restaurant.
