This hotel right on the river is a wonderful example of class and beauty. Champaign breakfast every morning on the river front and a great location which is close to everything including train station.We loved every moment of it

My wife and I stayed in late September (6 nights) and early October (5 nights) at Hotel züm Storchen. We were consistently pleased with the rooms, breakfast buffet, and responsiveness of all of the staff members with whom we came into contact. Among the hotels at which we have stayed, we deem Hotel züm Storchen among the very best. We thank them for their hospitality and their kindnesses.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the Limmat River are great, though they are a bit pricier than those facing th...

A marvellous experience! The staff at reception, concierge, restaurant and housekeeping are like a family who couldn't do enough to make my stay of a total of 8 days so memorable. They displayed genuine pride and pleasure in their work and attended to every detail. The meals were exceptional and served in beautiful surroundings. Centrally located, the hotel was only steps away from shopping,conducting business or enjoying the many sights that Zürich has to offer. I always looked forward to returning to my tastefully decorated and ultra clean room overlooking the River Limmat--like a sanctuary. I returned to Canada, having purchased one of the Storks--it serves as a reminder of the exceptional experience at the Hotel Storchen.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the River Limmat. If you are tall, you might want to avoid a room on the t...

Wonderful hotel with great views in a great location on the river. You just had to walk across a bridge right by the hotel to get to old town. There were many nice stores right by the hotel. The staff was more than helpful. The rooms were large with large bathrooms and nicely appointed. There was fruit, water and candy in our room. The dinner at the restaurant was delicious as was the breakfast buffet. We were very glad we stayed there.

Thank God I chose the Storchen!!! Couldn't be more right. I love the old city, the views of the Zurisee, the people, the glamour of these old streets and excellent shops. This hotel has the perfect location.

And of course, the service, my room, the meals... outstanding.

We concur with all the 5 star ratings and wouldn't stay anywhere else! The location is perfectly situated to explore the charming narrow streets of shops and restaurants by foot and many of the historical landmarks of Zurich. Our extremely comfortable room on the second floor overlooked the river and we loved having our windows wide open in evenings to enjoy the spectacular views. The included breakfast had abundant offerings and by the third day, the staff remembered our preferences for cappuccinos. The hotel staff at the front desk were very willing to help with dinner reservations and questions we had, and most impressively remembered which room we were staying in. A small but wonderful touch. We did not eat at the hotel beyond breakfast but thoroughly enjoyed their attentive and personalized approach at breakfast. Would, without hesitation, stay at the hotel again. Worth every CHF.

Very pleasant and helpful staff --clean and quiet rooms -- excellent breakfast -- the only negatives are the dinner where the waiting staff were a bit offhand and gave the impression that they would rather be somewhere else --but the food was well cooked. But there are a number of very good restaurants close by the hotel.
