Another great stay at this hotel.

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Sep 24, 2019
Just back from another stay at this fabulous, family run hotel. It's our 6th stay here on a coach trip. Can't fault this hotel in any way. The staff are friendly and speak excellent English. The rooms are clean with plenty of space. The beds are comfortable and low to the ground which makes getting in and out easy. The food in the restaurant is beyond compare and catered for me as a vegetarian with some marvellous dishes. Plenty of choice at breakfast. We're looking forward to staying here again in February next year for the winter carnival.
Date of stay: September 2019
Room Tip: Ask for a room in the annex but be careful of the circular staircase if you have a heavy case.

Every year we book here a room for the 1st. August. Personal is friendly, breakfast is good, the rooms are simple, maybe need a refreshing but for the price, it is still ok.
It’s just that this time we were the room 18 on the first floor and downstairs is the bar and it was a bit noisy till late.

We have spent the the last two weeks at Hotel Rigi, Vitznau. I would recommend this family run hotel for many reasons. The welcome is second to none. We had a corner front room with a balcony and views over the lake. The accommodation was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was a buffet style with plenty of choice. The evening meal was ac4 course waiter service either in the dining room or the garden, weather permitting. The waiters were so helpful and friendly . The food was freshly cooked and during our 2 weeks the menu did not repeat itself.
The hotel is a 2 minute walk from the boat station with an hourly servuce to Lucerne and other villages on Lake Lucerne and thev cog railway which goes up the Rigi.

I booked to stay here for the one night as I wanted to be next to the Rigibahnen rack railway for the fiurst train of the day at 08:15. If coming from Luzern, You can reach Vitznau by boat or a frequent train/bus connection via Küssnacht am Rigi.

Booked in OK and settled up. Breakfast was from 08:00, but I had already made them aware so this was easily re-arranged. The room was a double for single use. Very warm when I arrived. Smell of cigarette smoke most of the time which was either from an adjacent room or extractors fotr the bar downstairs. Furniture was a bit knocked about and bathroom was OK. The plug sockets seemed to be ones not used inmost other countries in Europe, however the reception had a selection of adaptors.

Breakfast was particuarly good - good fresh coffee, nice selection of breads, cheeses etc.

Perfect if you want to visit the region but avoid the pricy hotels and the touristic hazzle of Luzern; we absolutely loved this place! Service was excellent, the whole atmosphere + the hotel itself was very cozy and easy-going, our room very clean, the view & balcony to the lake simply marvellous, breakfast and the restaurant excellent, parking was easy + the location perfect to visit Rigi and/or hop on a boat to Luzern. AND as a cherry on top: very close to the hotel there's a place where you can take a dip in the lake on a hot summer day, total bliss <3 Also highly recommend walking down from Rigi First/Kaltbad to Vitznau or at least the upper part to a trainstop, the path and the views are absolutely amazing!

Room tip: Room with a balcony, unless you dislike any kind of noise from the street

The environment in there was amazing very warm welcoming felt like I was with family. The manager Lyness was a life savor we missed our train and almost missed our flight but he went above and beyond to make sure we got to the airport safely and kept us calm. He was the best and didn’t expect anything in return. The hotel itself is in the perfect location. In Rigi if you get a higher hotel you need to take a Tran since cars aren’t allowed after a certain point and that’s what made this hotel better it’s right in the bottom so cars are accessible plus you don’t need to depend on the Rigi train who’s timetable is very limited for example in you want to leave before 7 and go to your hotel after 10 you wouldn’t be able to. But at Rigi Hotel it’s right at the bottom so you don’t have to worry about that which is liberating. Definitely recommend it to everyone and when I come back I’m staying here again!!!!
