Lots of things to love about this hotel. Its central location on the Limmat river is at the top of the list. By all means, get a room with a view of the river. Also wonderful -- the air conditioning! We were in Zurich during an extended heat wave, and the room air-con made a huge difference. The lobby and hallways aren't air-conditioned, and I felt bad for the desk clerks and concierge in their heavy uniforms.
Rooms are furnished in an updated-traditional style. Our spacious room had lots of lovely toile de jouy but felt contemporary. We were given a room that we were told had one of the larger bathrooms; it seemed to have been recently updated. Clearly, the beds are meant to be adjustable, but ours didn't seem to work. Overall, though, we had no complaints about our room.
Dinner on the hotel terrace is a treat. Not only are the views of the river and the distant mountains wonderful, but the food was the best we had during our entire Swiss holiday.
We stayed here and at the Widder hotel. Both are superb, but the Storchen is somewhat less expensive.
