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 :-)

I travel often to Zurich primarily for business reasons and always visit Störchen lobby hall to work and have my business meetings. The view from the hotel is fantastic and I consider the best in the city. Unique view of Limmat river, the magnificent Zurich town hall Rathaus and astonishing view of the landmark Grossmünster, the Romanesque-style Protestant church. Moreover...

From the check-in to the check-out, everything was absolutely perfect. The room is so beautiful and well presented. Breakfast is A DREAM!

My wife surprised me with a trip to Zurich for my bday. She chose the Storchen as it was located well in the centre and is well reviewed. It was a short stay, about 3 days but I guess it's quite enough to experience this beautiful place on earth. The hotel is quite small but the room itself has good...

One of the best locations in Zurich, next to the river and bahnhofstrasse actually next to everything if you consider Zurich. Very friendly and professional staff, clean orderly rooms with all the right amenities. Beautiful restaurant and excellent breakfast. One can easily say home away from home.

This is a very nice hotel in the center of Zurich and I had an experience of the great service at reception. While visiting from Australia, I needed some help urgently to contact family who were shopping nearby. Kim was patient & helpful. She went the extra mile and the kindness was appreciated. Unfortunately, the same could not be said...
