Beautiful town - next to the lake - we could even see the lake from our window
The warmest of welcomes from the extremely friendly team at the Hotel Rigi. Room was comfy, cosy and perfectly presented and clean. Wifi was fast in the room and the public bar where I enjoyed the local beer! Bar staff made me feel at home. Enjoyed a lovely breakfast and stayed to have a most superb meal in the fine restaurant. Food is truly outstanding. I can't wait to return and stay for longer. Amazing good value.
We had a lovely one night stay here. The hotel is perfectly situated for the lake and the station to go up Mount Rigi. We didn't have a room with a lake view, but could see some mountains. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. The highlight was the bed, which although was one of those 2 singles joined up things was definitely the comfiest bed I've ever experienced in a hotel! The area is beautiful and we'd certainly stay here again.
Very friendly staff, good English especially from the male receptionist who was very helpful. Lovely view of the lake and a little balcony. Nice breakfasts and lovely outdoor eating area for dinner. Very close to boat dock and Rigi Bahn.
No English TV progs, not even BBC world or Sky news. Memory foam mattress not to our taste. No tea making facility in room.
Very friendly family run hotel which is ideally located for the boats and the train up Mount Rigi. We arrived at 11am and didn't expect to be able to check in - but they very helpfully made a room available. . We had a very enjoyable stay. We booked a standard room in the main hotel building and it had a good (sideways) outlook over the lake and up to the mountains behind. The food in the restaurant is excellent
The view of the lake The quality of the food The helpfulness of management The position right in town
The tightness of the parking area The chiming of the church clock right next door The clanging at the Cog Wheel Train terminal from early morning
Very Swiss hotel, nice restaurant and great food.
a good lake view and you can walk along the lake with the setting sun. The rigi mountain railway station is beside.
It takes 1 hour form Luzern downtown to the hotel by ferry and it's expansive without a swiss pass.
The familily and quiet atmosphere
The poor possibility to park the car
The only thing I liked was breakfast. There was a nice variety and it was good.
I did not like the manager's attitude. He was very nice when we checked in but after that, he was quiet rude. Whenever we needed something he kept saying "I do not have time right now" The hotel is old and it is right by the train station and there is a lot of noise. In the room, the fridge did not work at all. The bed is 2 small beds put together and there is at least 4 inches between the two mattresses. Booking.com says free parking but one night when we came in, there was no more room to park our car. We were told that parking is free if it is available, so we had to pay $8 in the city parking a few streets down.
Clean, comfortable newly refitted rooms and bathrooms. Very friendly, obliging staff. A great location in the heart of this picturesque village with great views over the lake and, for our stay on 1st August, the fireworks!
Location, nice breakfast and car parking available.
Everything was fine.
Great location, our room balcony overlooked the lake. Old fashioned, not over modernised. Excellent food and friendly staff. Fast Wi-Fi.
When the temperature rose to over 30C, the room was too hot in the evening. We sat in the cool bar until it was cool enough to sit on the lovely balcony. No kettle to make tea or coffee. The food, like most in Switzerland, was very expensive. A slight reduction for hotel guests would have helped us to dine more.
2 minutes on foot from lake steamers and Rigi Rack railway - also buses. Pleasant garden for breakfast and good restaurant - some tables close to road but not too much traffic.
Excellent host, always going the extra mile to ensure the guests get personalized attention. Splendid view from the windows. Set in a serene environment. Generous breakfast with a variety of assortments.
Location is superb. Within easy walking distance to ship, bus stop, and cog wheel train. Breakfast was delicious.
I met up with my Mom, brother, and sister-in-law here. My Mom is originally from the neighboring town of Gersau and flew home from the U.S. to visit with her sister, brother, and other extended family and friends throughout Switzerland. We chose to all meet up and stay in Vitznau to try something new yet still be central to everyone Mom wanted to visit. We had a very nice stay at Hotel Rigi. The staff was very warm, welcoming, and helpful. They made our hotel time quite memorable, with great service, delicious breakfasts and dinners, and fun in the hotel's bar. The hotel is well located to easily stroll the town of Vitznau, to take the Rigi Bahn up the Rigi, to catch a ferry to sightsee on the Lake of Luzern, and to walk along the lake's perimeter to capture beautiful photographic memories!
There is some construction currently taking place to the front left of the hotel just next to the ferry stop on the lake, which is changing the view a little from the pictures shown on the website when I booked in spring of 2014. It wasn't a problem for us, but is worth noting.
The hotel is right next to the Rigi cogwheel line, next to the bus stop and just across from the boat landing for steamers to and from Lucerne. Very sweet old fashioned ambience but the room had comfy beds and up to date bathrooms. Bear in mind that there is a church just next door and there are spells of furious bell-ringing during the day. The hotel is otherwise in a very peaceful and picturesque site.
The view was great (looking over the lake and a beautiful church steeple); breakfast was superb; the host was charming; had very good dinners both here and at a nearby restaurant; the train up to the top of Mt Rigi was just across the street.
No complaints here.
Very close to train station to Mount Rigi and have a very nice view on sunset.
Totally professional and also warm and caring - a difficult combination but Linus and his team have discovered the secret. The Rigi is one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in and in a location to die for. We'll be back!
What's not to like?
Linus and his staff are all totally professional but also caring and considerate. The Rigi is in a perfect location and is beautifully run. The chef is above excellent. We were only sorry we couldn't stay for more than a week. Everybody should come here at least once in his life!
What's NOT to like?
Sweet hotel, amazing breakfast, terrace and view were great.
No air-con, so was very hot at night. Quite expensive, as was dinner.
Good location to visit Mt.Rigi.
The room is a little bit noisy, because hotel is next to the main load and train station.
Location was perfect. It was very hot, but that's not the hotel's fault - the setting was beautiful and staff very friendly and multilingual! Accomodating staff often stay beyond opening/closing hours of breakfast buffet and bar if patrons are still there enjoying themselves. Truly professional!
The parking is extremely difficult, but this is a symptom of the town of Vitznau more than the hotel. The parking lot in the back is rather small and other parking accomodations are pay only.
