Let's start with the positive: - the hotel is ideally located, in the old historical town, next to the river, in a very relaxing area. - the rooms are comfortable, well equipped, the sound isolation is optimal - the hotel is very clean Let's continue with the disappointment: - I ordered last year in June, during the pandemic situation, a voucher (with discounted price) which include one overnight and a dinner. The aim was to support city hotels who were recently closed due to the sanitary restrictions with certain doubt for future economic outcome. The payment was made upfront with a possibility to use it within one year. My wife and I book the room for this last Friday with a notice of several weeks. In the offer we had a choice of 3 restaurants, two in the hotel (main restaurant and the bar) while another was in a partner restaurant within walking distance. During the reservation i clearly indicated my order of preference. When doing registration, none of my choice was considered; i was proposed to eat in the bar (they call it italian restaurant but there are actually no italian food ????), the prepaid menu proposed was a salad-hamburger-ice cream. Wow super 5-star choice!!! I asked to check if the partner restaurant can welcome us, and as you can imagine i was said it is already fully booked. I was very frustrated and asked them to consider another main course than hamburger, which they said they will look at it. We went for a walk in town and came across the partner restaurant; i decided to ask directly if we can book a table for dinner, which was confirmed to me and i was even able to have a table outside, but i have not used my voucher- It seems that my reservation skills are superior that the one demonstrated at Storchen. We had an excellent local meal. Do not expect in the breakfast buffet to have local products. On the fruit plate you will have nice pineapples, kiwis, mangos, but it seems that the seasonal fruits such as strawberries, apricots, cherries cannot reach the hotel, you better have to walk few steps in the nearby Saturday market to buy them. On the juice front, you can have orange or grapefruit, but when you ask for an Apple juice you are charge in addition !!!! The next day, i asked to use my voucher to eat a salat or similar at lunch, and the crew at Storchen declined my request as the voucher was not valid for lunch. It is not my first experience in superior hotel, but it is the first time i was treated witch such an arrogance. One of the worst price/offering ratio i never had. I

Dear David P First of all thank you very much for taking the time to review your stay with us. Only with our guests feedback we are able to improve our service. Furthermore we are very pleased to hear, that you liked the location and our newly renovated rooms. We do notice our guests’ preferences regarding the restaurants but it is unfortunately not always possible to fulfill the wishes. That is why it is clearly stated in the reservation confirmation, that it is upon availability where you can have dinner with your voucher. The communication between the partner hotels is very close but we don’t receive a regular update if the availability in the other restaurants have changed. However, at the time of your request we should have checked the situation in the Boucherie “AuGust” again. Furthermore, we should have had the flexibility to accept the voucher also for your lunch at it is our aim to go the extra mile for our guests. We try to be as sustainable as possible while also trying to offer a wide range of products. Therefor we regularly have different kind of berries or a local fruit salad on our buffet as well as exotic fruits. We are very sorry that you did not receive what you expected. We take your criticism very seriously and will of course follow-up with our team. Hopefully you will give us another chance to create an unforgettable experience at our hotel. Kind regards, Stephanie Meyer Front Office Manager

Me and my wife wanted to visit their rooftop bar called "The Nest" on Saturday 5th of September at around 9:15pm as it looked very nice on the photos. As we were not sure were the entrance is, we used the main hotel entrance where four guys (stuff) were talking to eachother and ignored us. After asking kindly if they could please let us know how we can get to the rooftop bar, the answer was short and even whitout a greeting: "It's closed!" After this I mentioned that infront of the hotel there's an advertising saying that the bar closes at 10pm, his answer was: "The last round was at 9:15pm!". We have visited the Restaurant at Hotel Storchen a few times and were never treated that rude! For the future we will definitely avoid the Hotel aswell as it's restaurant and bar!

My wife and i stayed here for 4 nights on a special occasion. The location is brilliant. Everything is within walking distance. Shops , restaurants , old town & train station , the hotel is spotless clean & we had a comfortable bed and a nice room. The breakfast is nice but limited , the staff are pleasant & friendly. It is a typical city centre hotel where space is limited , but very relaxing and with a brilliant roof top bar , with great views.

Our stay at Storchen Hotel was incredibly disappointing. First of all, our CHF 540.- room per night was incredibly small. Clearly the size of the room didn't allow two people to move properly. We don't mind paying a high price for a beautiful room but clearly the one we received was overpriced and filled with unnecessary decoration. Then, we kindly requested bringing our (small) dog with us, a Jack Russel. The hotel requested a CHF 20.- supplement per night, which is perfectly normal. While booking, no mention was made about the dog not being allowed at any place in the hotel. For this reason, we were unpleasantly surprised to be turned away from breakfast because of the dog. We wanted to enjoy breakfast on the terrasse, our dog is small and calm, and the price we paid for the room INCLUDED breakfast and the dog. We were told to leave it alone in the room or outside in the hallway. Of course, we left breakfast without even having a solution suggested and were told ''yes sorry'' at the reception when demanding explanations. The staff was generally unfriendly, for instance when loaded with suitcases we asked for a taxi to the station. The person at the reception looked incredibly bothered by the request. Never in any hotel we go, we feel unhappy with the staff or the room, and never have we written an unpleasant review on any place we've stayed at. But let us tell you that never, we will go back to this terrible and overrated hotel Storchen.

Dear claralffr First of all we would like to thank you for informing us about the bad experience you and your mother had staying with us. We appreciate all inputs we receive from our guests to continually improve our services. We truly apologize for the insufficient friendliness you were faced and the lack in communication. Of course we have informed the staff about your feedback and will also continue with trainings to improve the quality of our service. Regarding our rooms we have to admit that the size of the rooms are on the smaller side. As our hotel is over 650 years old and under a preservation order we are unfortunately not allowed to make bigger changes in the ground-plan of the building. We would gladly have assisted in offering an alternative room if we had knew about this dissatisfaction but we understand the unpleasantness of changing an accommodation after arrival. As a token of our regret having betrayed your expectations we have taken the opportunity to get in direct contact with you. The entire Storchen-Team would be truly thankful if you could accept our apologies and it would be an honor to welcome you soon in our house again in order to prove ourselves to you. Best regards Anina Thom, Front Office Manager
