Storchen Zurich
Ranked #5 of 137 Hotels in Zurich
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 2, 2011

The excellence of the hotel is always present. Lovely to enter and ready to returns when you leave. The elegant city of Zuich succeeds as you stay at the Storchen. Reservations are attended with optimal details and as you enter the lobby the attention at the reception is friendly, courteous, and most important competent and effiecient. The room has a secret : the beds on the side have 4 buttons, the beds are adjustable - back or legs go up - what joy for the tired tourist or businesspersons body in need to relax. Additionally so clean, the bathrrom with fresh towels changed twice daily or as needed .

The restaurant is a Zunfhaus - part of the traditional guilds. The menu varied and delicious, occupied by intllectuals, business and people who appreciate good tasting and seating. You sit by the Limmat River and see the Lake of Zurich and the Alps - outside or in - as the weather or you prefer.

You will never regret staying the the Zum Storchen!!!

For our first night in Switzerland my fiance brought me to the Hotel Zum Storchen. The staff was incredibly gracious and helpful and our room was perfect. After a long, tiring flight taking a relaxing soak in the large inviting tub while sipping tea felt like bliss. The fruit and chocolate they set out for us was delightful and dinner from the restaurant was absolutely delicious. I ordered veal and chocolate mousse. They were both excellent choices.

The view of the river was lovely. Taking my morning shower was a treat in the amazing shower, as was relaxing afterwards in the cozy slippers and robe provided in the room. The doorbell and conveniently placed universal light switches next to the bed were pleasing discoveries.

I would most definitely visit again and recommend this hotel to others.

Warm, friendly staff. Nice rooms in a stunning location. Helma Jouck manages one of the nicest bars in the city and is a stunning mixologist. Dining on the Terrace of the Rotisserie is a treat almost unduplicated for location.

We have stayed at the Zum Storchen six times and each times seems to be more enjoyable. The staff is warm and professional, from the parking attendant that greets you at your car to the concierge to the management. In addition, the restaurants and bar are excellent. The rooms are exceptionally maintained and have great view of the river. The breakfast on the terrace is a memorable experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a river view.

This is a wonderful classic hotel with a really 5 stars and personalized service. The staff is incredibly attentive and nice. The rooms are spotlessly clean and pleasant, and every day we had fresh fruit, mineral water and chocolates in the room. We stayed in a room overlooking the river, with a beautiful view and light. I definitely recommend it. The breakfast at the hotel is very good and the staff is always trying to do their best to please you. The location is unbeatable, at a walking distance of almost everything (restaurants, shopping, monuments…). I undoubtedly recommend this hotel in Zurich!!

Wonderful old fashioned attention to detail, this is truly a 5 star experience. You need to insist on a room overlooking the river to get the full value of staying at the Storchen.
The restaurant is a bit dingy (dark wooden panels), but if you eat on the terrace, over looking the river, it is a truly amazing way to start or end the day.
Only thing I wish they would is improve, is the bar on the first floor: it is pretty grim. But there is one on the ground floor that is fine.

Room Tip: Insist on a river review

Chers visituers du Storchen !
Je vous remerçie sincèrement pour votre commentaire sur notre hôtel. Et c'est avec beaucoup plaisirs que j'ai lu que vous avez apprécié notre terrasse. Vous avez bien raison que la vue est extraordinaire et les chambres sur la fleuve et le vue de la ville aussi.
Le pianobar au premier comme le restaurant sont sous protection de monuments mais étaient récemment rénovées.

Je vous souhaite un bel été et à bientôt j'éspère au Storchen.
Sincèrement
Jörg Arnold, GM
