We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at this beautiful hotel which is located on the river. We enjoyed the penthouse suite which have a phenomenal view of the mountains and river below. Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted at the front desk and promptly showed to our room. There was fresh fruit every day, bottled water, a nepresso machine... More

My wife and I stayed at the Storchen for a couple of days earlier this month. It was our first stay at this hotel, and we were very happy. I had earlier informed them that our flight arrived at 6.30 am, and requested an early checkin. Happy that they obliged at no extra charge. The room was quite spacious and... More

Once again we stayed at the Storchen in Zurich and every stay it seems to be getting better. We arrived very early in the morning and did not expect a room but were hoping that our luggage would be kept for us, while we would stroll through the city. But what a surprise, we were greeted like old friends and... More

Our room was small, cramped and not particularly attractive. The towels were old and worn. They actually SELL toothbrushes, combs, tampons and condoms in the bathroom through a vending machine. Wireless was inconsistent. The service was fairly efficient but not warm, and the place felt a bit dingy for the price. For 500 CHF, this was way, way overpriced. We... More

Only slightly negative remark was that when we asked for a taxi to the railway station a limousine without a metre arrived. The fare to the station was high for... More

We were lucky that our travel agent understood exactly what we wanted when we visited Storchen Hotel in Zurich . The location was central everything was walking distance . The designer stores were at our door step . The staff were wonderful and the food was incredible .

The hotel is in a great central location. On arrival our room was upgraded and we had a beautiful view of the river with excellent relaxing decor and plenty of space. We had arrived rather early to check in and waited outside on the pleasant waterfront terrace. Suddenly it began to rain but no problem as immediately an open umbrella... More

On behalf of our 2 families (rooms 415 & 218), I wish to thank you for our wonderful week in Zum Storchen. No doubt this is the best hotel in Zurich! The perfect combination of location and hospitality! Here is the geographic center of the old Zurich. Zum Storchen is perched on the banks of the Limmat River, opposite to... More

What a perfectly delightful evening! We were recommended to the terrace restaurant at the Storchen by our Zurich host, with the assurance of excellent Swiss food. Indeed it was, and so much more. First, the setting is charming. We were seated on the second floor terrace, which is fringed with flower boxes, and overlooks the river with its swans floating... More

We had only one night to stay in Zurich and chose the Hotel Storchen based largely on trip advisor comments. We found the hotel to be in an excellent location with lovely views of the river. There are great restaurants and shopping nearby. The rooms were ok although a bit overpriced in my opinion for the furnishings and bedding chosen.... More
