“A great retreat in Zurich”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

At last a great retreat in Zurich. A good mix of tradition and modernity. Lovely bar. Attentive and friendly service. Conference staff were helpful and efficient. My favourite hotel in Zurich.

Room Tip: The hotel is near one of the main churches in Zurich. The chimes are silenced in the night but start...

We (me, my wife and my son) travelled for 12 days in August 2011 all over Europe. In brief, our trip was as follows: Munich, South Bavaria (Hohenschwangau - Neuschwanstein Castle region), Milan, Zurich and back to Munich to fly back home to Moscow. More than 3000 km in magnificent Infiniti M30d. And our several days stay in Storchen Zurich were really great! This is definitely not a cheap hotel, but it is worth it. We had the room overlooking the river - the view was simply breathtaking! Though, of course, beware of the noise - if you want to sleep well you'll have to close all windows, because it is quite busy area of Zurich. This was the first hotel in my life where the beds were electronically regulated (you can get different parts of the bed tilted in different way - I saw something like that in "hospitals" TV series like House M.D. :)) - unbelievably comfortable! You have to try it :)) The service was very good. The hotel itself and the room were very clean. Negative: we didn't quite like breakfast: the choice was not great and overall the food was plain. Nothing special. We once had dinner at the hotel's restaraunt - it was nice, though quite expensive. You can have 3-5 minutes walk up on Strehlgasse and have better and cheaper dinner at the restaraunt of Haus Zum Kindli hotel. Another somewhat negative point: though the room is quite spacious, the bathroom is tiny - you feel like standing in the wardrobe. There is only valet parking - the hotel situated in the "only pedestrians" zone, but you can drive right to the entrance, if you are the guest of the hotel. But overall we just loved our stay in Storchen Zurich and would definitely recommend it to anyone.

Arrived here on 31st jan greeted at the front desk by a charming friendly lady and this set the tone for the rest of our stay, friendly, very efficient service, everything done with a smile, the corner suite was perfect fantastic views up, down and across the river 423 is the one to ask for, at 950 Swiss francs a night it ain't cheap but very nice. Watched the NY fireworks from the Storchen suite on the top floor which has a terrace facing the river After four days we are leaving here very happy with our stay at this excellent hotel.

What can I say! This perfectly located, boutique hotel, maintains a wonderful homely feeling which together with the ever friendly and genuine service, makes for a perfect stay.

There should be more hotels like this! It has never lost it's touch and remains, a treasure!
I can not wait to return and will definitely find another business reason to go back soon.

On business I normally, find it difficult to sleep away from home, but I found the cosiness so comfortable that I wanted to continue my stay.

Well done to all the management of the hotel!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, if you have the possibility then take the new Junior Suite!
