"We always stay here"
We always think of the Zum Storchen when we visit Zurich. Being in old town and right on the Limmat River is a luxury we enjoy. The staff knows us and are always friendly and very helpful. We will be back soon.

"Great Hotel - Location, Location, Location!"
Storchen Zurich was a great hotel - 5 star hotel with a very friendly staff. The hotel location may have been hard to find, but once you are there, you can walk to the best shopping in Europe. The restaurants in the area were great and everyone was very friendly!

Very nice hotel in the perfect location on the Limmat river in Zurich. Staff was excellent in every way and the hotel exudes an aura and atmosphere of understaed class and elegance.

"Charming Swiss hotel located in the old city."
This hotel room was large and very comfortable, especially the bed. We also had a large balcony that faced the church with the large clock face. The location cannot be better alongside the river and within minutes of all the sights of the old city. Breakfast was excellent and they had no problem bringing extra coffee. Staff are extremely helpful and polite. The restaurant was closed for a private function when we were there so unable to try it.

"Great location, charming hotel"
Great location, ask for a riverside room for the best views. Splendid breakfast and the only hotel I've ever stayed in with an electric blanket on the bed! Slight glitch with the hot water on my last morning, but it was dealt with promptly and efficiently.

"Great location in central Zurich"
Great location, ask for a riveside room for the view, and the only hotel that I've stayed at with a heated underblanket on the bed! One slight issue, and something that was clearly unusual giben Swiss efficiency, was a problem with hot water on the morning I checked out. It wan't icy cold (fortunately) but it was certainly chilly

Small luxury boutique hotel in the old town in Zurich. Within walking distance of all major tourist sites. The room was smallish but beautifully decorated with all the amenities that you expect in a luxury hotel. Windows opened to allow fresh air. Room overlooked the river with fantastic views. Free bottles of water available. Highly recommended and would stay there again. Staff friendly and efficient

"Das Hotel ist sehr schön, stilvoll, gediegen."
Das Hotel ist für Menschen passend, die gerne Stilmöbel mögen. Es ist wie aus einer vergangenen Zeit. Sehr netter Empfang. Die Mitarbeiter sind freundlich. Es ist alles ein bisschen erhaben. Wir haben unssehr wohl gefühlt. Wenn wir wieder mal nach Zürich kommen, würden wir uns das Hotel gerne wieder buchen. Es spielte eine wunderbare Pianistin, Frau Csilla Strobel- Varga in der Bar.

"Tolle Lage"
Obwohl das Hotel nur wenig belegt war, wurde uns ein Raucherzimmer mit Verbindungstür gegeben, das wir ausdrücklich nicht gebucht hatten. Nichtraucherzimmer ohne Verbindungstür sowie Zimmer im besseren Zustand waren zur Genüge frei. Deshalb hatten wir das Gefühl, man wollte uns das schlechteste Zimmer geben, weil wir über hotel.com gebucht hatten.

"So good I decided to write a review!"
07/29/15 SRB100101 Hong Kong Region, China
I needed to go to Zurich for a conference. The conference was at the Park Hyatt but when I heard that the room rate was Euro800 I asked my secretary to look for something more reasonable and she booked me into the Storchen at Euro420. I was slightly nervous on approach as the price differential between the 2 hotels was so high. I was delighted in every way. The hotel was completely charming, the quality of the finishings, bed, linens etc was 1st class and the service was 6 sigma. The rooms are not large but thoughtfully planned and 1st class. The bathroom was small, but brand new and also thoughtfully planned. A delightful view out over the river and the bridges - and air conditioned (it was boiling outside!), which is not a given in many European hotels. Try the ravioli in the restaurant - as light as I've tasted. Congratulations to a small hotel for competing so successfully with the large 5 star international brands.

The service levels were amazing from the time I arrived until I departed. I needed a tie for a meeting and they were able to secure one for me in minutes. Clean bright room and the food in the restaurant was terrific too.

"Fantastic room"
07/23/15 Amy B Paris, Tennessee
We had a corner room with a king sized, dual control adjustable bed. (Terrific after a day of walking). The large windows opened to the plaza below and the Grossmünster Church across the water. We relaxed in the late afternoons by watching the water traffic, listening to the bells and educating ourselves with the history of Zurich. We were walking distance from fabulous shops and restaurants. One of our favorite hotel rooms ever.

"Location, service, view"
07/23/15 Maxineelisa Espoo, Finland
Location: 2min from bahnhofstrasse, right next to the lake,10min walk from railwaystation, right in the city center but still quiet and lovely. Service: best ever, I was a bit needy client and they catered to everything I needed. They also had free water bottles in every level. View: the room was really good but the view was amazing. Right to the beautiful lake and old buildings. Extra points: Breakfast was the best. Service was great and I sat on the private for hotel guests terrace outside right next to the river. They had best eggs I have ever eaten. The breakfast was something that I should come back to. First choice in Zürich for sure!

"Great hotel restaurant and view"
07/22/15 John G Fleming Island, Florida
My wife ate at the hotel restaurant twice during our stay in Zurich. It was a favorite of ours. We ate al fresco, looking at the Limmat River and lake Zurich in the distance. The restaurant fills up quickly due to its favorable location and great food. It's a nice place just to relax and enjoy the surroundings.

"Average rooms with a million dollar postcard view"
07/20/15 hobbrooks Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
The rooms are pretty average - the shower is awkward, decor dated, though the bed and linens are incredibly comfortable. However, the location is truly exceptional and my view directly onto the river from my room was worth every penny. The staff are wonderful, the restaurant patio overlooking the river is breathtaking and the old town sits right outside the door. I wouldn't stay here for the room itself, but everything else is so wonderful that I still give the property five stars.

"Loved it ! Everything we expected....."
07/20/15 LausanneFrederick Montreux, Switzerland
We spent a glorious four days here and had a wonderful time. We know the hotel well - having previously lived in Zurich for many years - so were aware of its reputation and spent little time in our decision making process. We were not disappointed - our suite was excellent - the bathroom was spacious and the shower especially good. Views from our room over the river were lovely. The hotel is centrally located which makes exploring by foot delightfully easy - access by car was restricted by road works whilst we were there, but each time we needed the car it was brought to the front for us within minutes. Faultless service. Everything about our stay was wonderful and the staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. We are looking forward to our next return visit and will most certainly be staying here again. Loved it !

"Tourist "
07/15/15 JAA51 Houston, Texas
This is a very expensive hotel and a huge disappointment The air conditioning does not work- room temp never fell below 80. It was actually cooler outside. The bed is uncomfortable and the pillows are worse. I spent two nights here and could not sleep at all! Negates the point of booking a hotel. The lights are a disaster- there are many interlinked switches and it takes a good 5-10 minutes to figure out the right combination to turn off the lights you want. Classic case of poor electrical design and Swiss over engineering. We arrived and room was not ready- they tried to sell us an upgraded room at a "discounted" rate of $1200SF! There are no taxis available ( they have to be called)and while the location is (nominally)convenient everything else about this hotel is just not acceptable. I have travelled extensively for 40+ years- this is the most unpleasant experience of any place anywhere.

"Sensational Storchen"
07/11/15 happycardinals Salem, Oregon
The Storchen is an amazing hotel. The staff was professional and provided a story book beginning to our holiday. Our deepest appreciation to reception, housekeeping, restaurant and concierge staff. Our river view room, 323, was amazing. We will request this room again. Location was perfect with an easy walk into old town, excellent access to trams, boats, chocolate shops and Town Hall music events. The Hotel provides a river front cafe, excellent restaurant and great piano bar. All served excellent food. Our room overlooked the river and Grossmunster Church one of the most spectacular views we have ever experienced. As we recall our european holiday, Zurich and the Hotel Storchen stand out as favorites. This was a perfect beginning for us and a big thank you to Storchen.
