Reviewed March 25, 2013

My husband and I stayed here while visiting our daughter, who lives in Zurich. The Storchen's location, right on the Limmat River, in the middle of Zurich's old town and a block away from Bahnhofstrasse makes it ideally located for many activities. We enjoyed the sumptuous breakfasts, dinner with old friends in the hotel's beautiful restaurant with a crackling fireplace and Sunday afternoon tea with our daughter in the bar. When we took one of the hotel-recommended walking tours starting right outside our door, we saw many of the special sights of Zurich's historical district. Service was great-- our room was always cleaned by the time we returned from breakfast and the Storchen may be the only hotel I've ever heard of that will bring the fitness center to your own room! This is a hotel that aims to please--efficient, friendly and on the ball. They certainly pleased us.

Stayed: March 2013, traveled with family

In the heart of Zurich, this location ran us nearly $700 a night. Great location, room was fairly basic. Breakfast was super, probably the best in Zurich. Great location, a short walk to Bahnhofstrasse, where you can buy anything from a $5 t-shirt to a $500,000 watch.

It was my first time in Zurich but thanks to the really friendly hotel staff it felt like home. In this aspect I want to give a special thanks to mr. Gardizy because he went all the way to help me in town, even more than one would expect from a professional concierge.

There are many hotels with good looks and luxurious rooms, but if you want that extra bit of service and hotel staff that will bring a smile to your face: you should try Storchen Zurich!

I have stayed frequently at the Zum Storchen, Zurich since the mid 1970s and there is simply no other place to stay!
The staff are the friendliest, and whenever I arrive they remember me! The location of the Zum Storchen can't be beat; a great shopping district, Bahnhof Str. and Rennweg with superb restaurants are within easy walking distance. The entire central Zurich area is easily navigated by the trams along the Limmat river and along Bahnhofstrasse. The Niederdorf entertainment district is an easy walk from the Storchen just across the river. I know that I can always count on a personal greeting from Gennaro and Ishak at the front desk and also from Helma in the Storchen Bar.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the Limmat river and the Grossmunster cathedral!

This is my third stay at this hotel and the service and attention to details has been consistently excellent. However, this was the first time for my wife and I wanted to impress her. Storchum was able to oblige me. They found us a great little cosy restaurant nearby - exactly what we wanted. After each long day of exporing Zurich the central location of the hotel was a pleasure. As always their breakfast is top quality and with one of the best views in town. Of course I let my wife have the seat with the view down the river toards Lake Zurich and the mountains beyond. Hotel Storchen was again the anchor of a great experience in a great city.

Room Tip: The rooms have different amenites - different showers, different views etc.

I stayed at the Hotel Zum Storchen and was very pleased with my decision. The hotel is on the Limmat, a river in the city, and is walking distance, about four blocks or a short tram ride away from the main train station, the Bahnhof and the old part of the city. If you ever get lost, just look for the church which was built in 1732, it is lit up at night. They don't use swipe cards for the rooms, but give a key on a huge key chain and ask you to turn it in when you leave. The front desk is manned 24/7 and the staff is very helpful. The cleaning staff will clean your room at least twice a day. It is definetely the best hotel for business travellers.

The location of this hotel couldn't be any better, walking distance to all things interesting in the city. Our room was very spacious and impeccably maintained. The breakfast/dining room is magnificent and overlooks the river, the old town and the mountains. The service was perfect and the staff throughout all departments is very friendly and knowledgable, so much so that we didn't want to leave after our four night stay at the end of January! I hope we have the opportunity to come back and will gladly recommend this hotel to others.
