Storchen Zurich
Ranked #4 of 138 Hotels in Zurich
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 December 2012

I stayed in Hotel Storchen one night in November 2012. I wanted a hotel near to business appointments I had in the center of Zurich. The hotel met both that requirement (I walked to my appointments) and my expectation of a hotel ranked #1 on Trip Advisor. The location is enhanced by the views over the Limmat river and the limited traffic that travels through this part of the city at night. I slept with my window open.

The Storchen's location makes it a perfect place to stay to explore the old quarter of Zurich - museums, churches, restaurants, shops and the main train station are all in easy walking distance. This is a hotel with centuries of tradition but it has modern facilities and a very welcoming & friendly staff. The Storchen is a small hotel that feels comfortable but runs with predictable Swiss precision.

Room Tip: Most rooms have a view of the Limmat river but some have better views than others.... Noise is not a...

I stay at Storchen each November on a business trip. I love the charmingly decorated room combined with all modern amenities. I love that it is right on the water. I love the outside bar looking across the river at the fabulous church. But I especially love the area. It's become tradition to step outside and visit van Laack for great shirts and cufflinks, Teuscher for special Christmas chocolates, Tabak-Ladeli for hand-rolled cigars and Parfumerie Stemmler for a gift for my wife. Not to mention great restaurants like Bindella and Bianchi in close walking distance. All of this AND a friendly, helpful staff, especially the concierges, who are fantastic!

Room Tip: Facing the river us especially lovely.

The Storchen Hotel is in the centre of the Zurich overlooking the river with wonderful shopping nearby. Our bedroom was attractively decorated and well planned with an excellent bathroom. All the members of staff we came across were friendly and welcoming and in particular those on the front desk who went to great lengths to help us with travel, museums etc.A brilliant place for a relaxing weekend.

Perfectly maintained hotel with staff that know how to do their work. Maybe the rooms are little but have in mind it is a rather old building, the only one in the old quarter facing the river. Outstanding kitchen! All meals delightful. Very quiet area at night.

“A pleasant interlude in a great location sampling the best of Swiss hospitality”.

This traditional water front hotel in the heart of the city is ideally placed for business and pleasure on the banks of the River, close to the train station and in the midst of good shopping.
A warm and relaxed atmosphere with friendly and helpful staff who make you feel most welome.
