A very expensive hotel for the size of the rooms. Location is great, service is great. Many restaurants nearby. Classic luxury on the beautiful limmet river. Nice restaurant in the hotel and lovely sitting areas outside and inside.

Dear Guest thank you so much for your kind words and it is great to see that you enjoyed your stay with us though of course you are right - not all the rooms have the same size. It is an old building but then our services are all the same. So we try hard to compensate size with quality...

After many years of running a hotel,you would think all would be as it should be with outstanding accommodations and service! This is accomplished here with very high quality in all aspects and any guest should be very happy with the results. A room overlooking the Limmat is a must There is no doubt that you are staying in a...

I spent quite a bit of time researching where to stay in Zurich. I landed up choosing the Storchen Hotel. It far exceeded my expectations. Hotel in Zurich are expensive, but for the price this was a great deal. They upgraded me to a room on the top floor that looked right out over the beautiful Limmet river. The Hotel...

I tried to stay at Storchen Zurich whenever I can because the location is just fantastic. Get a room facing the river to enjoy the great scenic view, the decor is modern with a hint of minimalism, very comfortable and makes you feel like home. Order room service if you can want to lay about and relax. Or try the...

Being a frequent visitor to Zurich have stayed at almost all the hotels one time or the other but the Storchen is my favourite and have for last few years stayed regularly there .

There are no cheap hotels in Zurich which, like most of Switzerland, is adept at extracting visitors’ money. The Storchen does, however, offer something a little different. It is the only hotel on the banks of the river Limmat, right in the middle of the historic old town and shopping areas, yet close to the lake. It is a converted...

Stayed here for 2 nights. We had a lovely room on the third floor with a small balcony overlooking the Limmat river. The room was clean and well decorated. The only two things that I would say (very minor) need improvement are the pillows and shower. The pillows were very flat - I am sure we could have asked for...

We had nice time in this hotel the fist and the second time we went in Zurich. Our room, with river view, was so inspirational that we "stole" the idea of electrically moved beds (Three positions!) for our house in Italy - several years ago. This is an up-to-date, thus comfortable and traditional city hotel. We tried also their restaurant:...
