My husband pulled out all the stops and booked the Storchen in Zurich for my 50th birthday celebration. Although we had to break the piggybank to do it, ours was a once-in-a-lifetime, unforgettable experience. The room was immaculately presented with a bowl of fresh fruit, high-end chocolates, and an immense orchid. We had a desk, sofa, and the biggest bathtub... More

This is a character hotel perfectly situated in the heart of Zurich. The quality is very high although in a traditional way. The rooms while comfortable have been refurbished to an OK standard but were small and creaky (headboards loose), bathrooms infeasibly small. The terraces on the 1st and ground floors are fantastic and will be busy in the summer... More

This is one of those hotels which takes you back in time - to the 50s or 60s. Everything is old style - the heavy room key, the decor, the service style. Nice - especially since it is immaculate condition and technically updated. I have eaten there several times - and this was my first stay. However, I had some... More

Perfectly located, away from the main stream but so close to it, facing the river with the geese and the ducks and the lively old town on the other shore. The restaurant and the club room are classics that are hard to see anywhere else, and the street-bar at the entrance is a blessing before you return to your room.... More

I use to stay at Zum Storchen for many years, and every time I'm happy to be back here. Last time I stayed there on 13-14 of March, everything was excellent, as usual, but this time I caused and witnessed a rescue operation. My wife wanted to make photos of Limmat river through the hotel window, and she dropped the... More

I have known and used this hotel all my life several times. Its main atraction ( in the luxury hotel cathegory ) is its location. Just 100 meters from the pretty old town but away from its noise and facing the river. Its location is romantic, practical and very convenient for mixing business with some pleasure. The rooms have always... More

We travelled with our 2 daughters and booked 2 rooms at the Storchen and were upgraded to river facing rooms on arrival for a 5 night stay. The rooms were lovely, both a good size, beautifully decorated, plenty of windows opening... More

It is hard to find a well located hotel, with great service and comfortable rooms at this price in Zurich. Don't let the external appearances scare you as yes, that looks very 80ies, but inside it is very nicely decorated, typical Swiss style and the people at the reception are simply excellent. I got a room upgrade and had a... More

Excellent location with an extremely attentive, welcoming staff. The complimentary breakfast is outstanding, and next time I'll order an omelette. Didn't realize I could do that until after breakfast on the day I left. One cautionary note: toothbrush kit in bathroom isn't complimentary. I was tired so didn't dig mine out of the suitcase. Most hotels make you call to... More
