Our Christmas trip to the Hotel Rigi was remarkable. I had a sad personal committment to attend to whilst there and I encountered an unexpected hitch prior to arrival. However a word with Linus Gutknecht, the proprietor solved the problem quickly and discreetly, to my huge relief. Built in the early 1900's the hotel has been beautifully maintained, retaining most...

The room was ok and the restaurant outstanding. We had a beautiful stay. Good place to visit the region of the vierwaldstattersee and Luzern by boat. Nice holiday in Switzerland. We plan to go back next summer.

Recently stayed here for one night. Great location. Limited parking, but they do a good job of trying to get you a space and we were OK in the end. The menu looked good for food - but we ended up eating down by the Lake. The room itself was actually in an annex, but the block was fine, the...

A friend and I stayed at this hotel while on a motorcycle tour of Switzerland. As others have noted, the hotel is located one block from Lake Lucerne. We had views of the lake from our room and it was a quick walk to lakeside. The rooms were very nice, clean, and good value for the nightly rate. The beds...

For dinner we had "filet de fera" with champignon sauce and a swiss white wine from Dezaley. The fish was exellent but they should make a little effort for a better presentation. The wine was not up to its reputation. The breakfast was excellent and rich. The service was good. We had the room 34 with a beautiful view on...

Very poor for disabled persons, especially if you need to use a car. Car Parking very limited, often blocked in. Most rooms poor / very poor for disabled. Lift only serves some rooms. Access to dining room difficult for disabled people. Steep slopes to station / boats

We have just spent a week at the Rigi, and didn't want to leave. Its a lovely little hotel almost on Lake Lucerne and with good views from several rooms. Location is brilliant for public transport, with buses, cog railway to Mt Rigi and lake steamers calling every hour all on your doorstep almost. Breakfast was plentiful and a good...

We never stayed in the hotel. The review is for their restaurent. We visited on a very tight schedule where we had only around 30 minutes to catch the train and they managed to prepare a lovely lunch within that time period. The food was very tasty and reasonably priced The place is very close to the train station to...

Our triple A travel planner had us stop at the Arth Goldau rail station rather than Lucerne. Seeing that there were no hotels nearby we had to search online to find one. The Rigi Hotel is a long cab ride from the Arth Goldau station but it is worth it. My wife and I were there at the end of...
