This hotel is located in the old town and is within walking distance of the city centre. I love this hotel because it is terribly old fashioned and is lovely and quaint. The restaurant is excellent and I do not think I have ever had a bad meal there. The service is attentive and friendly and not stuffy or overbearing...

We highly enjoyed our stay at the Storchen. The location is a great base for exploring the old city of Zurich, shopping, art museums and restaurants all nearby. Rooms are lovely, very comfortable. The staff also took good care of us and breakfast was quite tasty.

Great location fronting the water, exactly as the photograph shows. Excellent service by all hotel staff from point of first email contact through daily contact all the way to check out. Just a tremendous experience. I definitely would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a uniquely Swiss experience.

Very nice old fashioned place with very good food and excellent service. They served some excellent Swiss wines. Brilliant location in the old center of town and overviewing the Limmat river. Not fancy or nouveau riche but real solid "gutbürgerliche" Swiss cuisine. I loved it.

We sat outside for drinks at this hotel (yes, outside!). There were fuzzy blankets on each chair, and the waiter was really awesome. With every round he brought us a different appetizer, and he was very friendly and attentive. Lobby was beautiful, and the restroom was spotless!

We're stayed at other hotels/B&B in Zurich but this has been by far the best experience. Fantastic location, everything is on your doorstep, very friendly and helpful staff and the rooms, although a little tired in places, were immaculately clean and comfortable. I would suggest trying to book a room on the 5th floor with a balcony, they have views...

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed this hotel and the city of Zurich. They honestly treated us like royalty.

I stay at the Storchen every time I travel to Zurich. Excellent location, friendly and helpful staff, good service. I usually do not take breakfast but I do need coffee. I order the room service (coffee and juice). Hotel does not charge it separately but it is included in the room rate... I love it :-)
