Our room was located with view on the river as we requested. The hotel is located in the heart of the old city, close to the lake of Zürich and the Central Station, and the Bahnhofstrasse. The hotel is in every detail perfect: beautiful rooms with details including: great breakfast at the riverside, automatic lights in the cupboards, very good... More

On the positive side, nice place with a central location and generally helpful staff. The Internet was fast. On the flip side, the place is extremely expensive for what is not more than a 4 star hotel. The rooms are tired and in certain need of updating.

I stayed here on both ends of my trip and each time it was a pleasure to stay at this hotel. It is very centrally located for shopping, strolling and sightseeing. My room was very clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated and the super clean updated bathroom was a plus. By European standards, I found the rooms quite large and the river... More

This was my first stay at the Storchen and I found it not overly enjoyable. The hotel is very old fashioned, rooms are very small and the bed was quite soft and rather uncomfortable. It also makes a huge difference what direction your room is facing. There is a huge clock tower behind the hotel, with bells ringing very early.

The Storchen is a historic hotel on the Limmat river in Zurich. Upon our arrival, we found their lively riverside outdoor cocktail patio, featuring a Cuban bartender and Cuban drinks. The plaza in front of the Storchen had tables and umbrellas where light meals and ice cream treats were served. Going into the lobby, we were quickly addressed and served... More

I stayed here for an night recently and had a wonderful experience. The rooms were very comfortable and a bit larger than your average European hotels.

Stayed at The Storchen for 3 super nights. It's located in the center of old Zurich on the Limmet River. A river tour boat starts right at the base of the hotel. The Fraumunster Church with its famous Chagall windows is a short walk, the upscale shopping areas and train station are within a 10 minute walk. The included breakfast... More

Our room was modern, luxurious, and cozy but spacious. Staff was perfect. Beautiful, boutique hotel with personal touches. Like staying at a dream apartment. Breakfast was incredible! We will be back every single time. A perfect stay for real travelers who enjoy luxury and real ambiance.

Good location on the bank of Limmat river, very close to city centre. Exellent meals, open air cafe near entrance. Riverboat stops same location, so you can enjoy cruises. On the other bank 2 places with tradition Swiss dish - fondu.
