Reviewed 11 August 2014

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 hotel. Breakfast, we love the breakfast here!

Room Tip: Choose a room with balcony might have better view to the lake.

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.

Room Tip: Try to avoid room 26 as it is directly opposite the church clock, which strikes on the hour and ever...

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 you can! The chef is beyond excellent and produces a wonderful menu that includes local specialities. Try the South African Sauvignon Blanc - it's to die for!
Nicole, Melanie and the whole team work incredibly hard and, as a consequence, the Rigi is an experience that we shall cherish.
Add to this a location that offers mountain and lake excursions within 5 minutes walk and you have a combination that any good hotelier would kill for!
Thank you Linus. It was wonderful and we'll miss you.

Room Tip: Rooms in the annexe are great

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. We were efficiently checked-in on arrival by Linus who was friendly and helpful. As we had arrived about 1 pm we had a nice lunch at the hotel restaurant while waiting for our rooms to be ready. After an amazing time at Mt Rigi with lovely weather we came back to Vitznau by boat from Weggis and had a lovely dinner at the hotel restaurant again. The lake front is just a short walk from the hotel and it was lovely to sit on the benches there to watch the sunset. The rooms we stayed in were comfortable and very clean and the breakfast spread was excellent. All in all, we were very pleased with our stay at Hotel Rigi. Thanks Linus and Giselle for your hospitality!

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 shore. I was a little bit unlucky because the weather was misty and I could not admire the views form Mt. Rigi and the lake in their whole splendor, but I can imagine that in a clear day the views should be unbelievable.

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 chose b&b but changed to half board as the quality of the food was so good there was no need to eat elsewhere. As we are vegetarian it can sometimes be difficult to find good food but the Rigi offers a varied selection and everything was imaginative and delicious. The staff were very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Valentines meal was exceptionally good
Would definitely recommend Vitznau and the Rigi hotel for a relaxing break in beautiful surroundings

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 Rigi is just outside the door. The restaurant at the hotel is outstanding, we especially love their stuffed schnitzels, either the traditional with ham and swiss cheese or the Mediterranean with sun dried tomatoes and mozzarella, and, if in season, their marinated strawberries with basil sherbet is not to be missed. Breakfast is a cut above the usual for a 3-star hotel in Switzerland, with boiled eggs, meats, cheeses, wonderful hearty breads, and no matter what season we have visited, a huge bowl of fresh fruit. Try the Hotel Rigi, you will not be disappointed!
