I have been to Zurich many times, I thought my regular hotel was too expensive with the higher value of the Swiss Franc. A friend recommended The Storchen. I am so glad he did. I got a very nice room in the 5th floor Queen bed view of the river. Reception was efficient, friendly and quick. The WiFi is free... More

The Storchen never fails. Nice rooms, albeit not all are big, good breakfast, especially on the terrace, amazing river scenery, perfect service and the best location. It is always consistent in all the important aspects. We will come back again for sure.

I always knew Storchen and had passed many times on my walks around Zurich, but never visited. I am definitely coming back soon. The hotel has a classic warm feeling and extremely comfortable and bright rooms. The bathroom was a little cramped and the wake up ringing of church bells a little early at 7 if you want to sleep...

If you want to stay at a charming old world hotel with friendly service, the Storchen is a great choice. We loved our corner room on the third floor from which we could view the river and the lake. The hotel is conveniently located and we had no problem walking to the places of interest to us. It is expensive... More

What a gem of a small hotel, located right in the middle of Zurich. The staff was attentive, friendly and thoroughly professional in every aspect of our stay. We appreciated their help in navigating the city and arranging for our transfer back to the airport.

stayed at the STORCHEN again for two nights and encountered swiss quality at its best. it's expensive, yes, but that goes for the whole city. in the STORCHEN you'll find the sort of unpretentious, lowkey, excellence which once was the hallmark of good swiss hotels. nothing flashy here, but the concierge adresses you with your name after half a day,...

Stunning location on the edge of the far end of the lake in Zurich. You are literally on the waters edge . The hotel also backs onto the edge of the old Town, so it is brilliantly located. All of the staff were very friendly, courteous and professional. The room though was fairly basic and despite it being a 'deluxe'... More

My husband and I stayed here one night...rooms were very nicely done and the service was excellent. They found out we were on our honeymoon and provided us with champagne in the room in the evening.
