Great place to go for a long weekend getaway. Quaint hotel is easy to get to from the airport by train. No need to get a cab. Location is great for sightseeing. Everyone is very friendly.The concierge service could be more helpful. You can get more information from shopkeepers than from the concierge desk. Lighting in the room was very annoying with all the different switches. Rooms are very clean, good size. My room was streetside and was very quiet. Although church bells do ring every hour throughout the day and evening.
Breakfast is included and is ok. Fresh bread daily, some cereal, eggs, yogart. Lots of cold cuts.
Could have had more fresh fruit. Fresh squeezed oj is a nice touch.

Room Tip: Noise is not a problem. There is no workout or pool area here. Plan to get your exercise walking ar...

My husband and I had a stop over in Zurich last September at the end of our Italian/Swiss adventure. After much searching on Trip Advisor, I finally chose the Storchen Hotel. We had a rental car, and there's a downside to that, as the hotel was difficult to find. Once we arrived, however, we were very pleased with the hotel and location. Right on the river and very close to the lake, the location is great. Lots of restaurants and shops in walking distance, and quite a lively bunch of street performers down on the lake. Room rate is pricey, but for a final, top rate night on our Euro trip, it was worth it. Staff is friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the river are wonderful.

We ALWAYS stays at Storchen when we are in Zurich! It´s our Favorite!!! Cozy and Elegant at the same time! Feels like Home! With an excellent location in the hart of Zurich. Really friendly and service-minded staff, who will do everything to make you feel at home! Clean and Beautiful rooms! Especially if you ask for a room with a French Balcony facing the River! The view is Magnificent!!! The River Limat is just below your feet. And the big shoppingstreets and most central-located offices in Zurich in perfect walking-distances, just minutes away. Really Great Breakfast on the Veranda over-looking the River, and a wide selection of Superb Breakfast-food and minute-maid fresh orange-juice. They also have a Nice Lunch-place out-side at the opend square right out-side the hotel. And a small bar at the River-side, where you can enjoy a drink. And a Wonderful Restaurant is also located in the hotel, where you can enjoy the Lovely view over The River, when you are having lunch or dinner. Other-wise you have a LOT of other Restaurants all around the hotel, if you would like to have other options. We do recommend Storchen, with all our harts! It´s BOTH Really GREAT for Business AND Romantic Couples! AND also a wonderful Place to go when you are solo or if you travel with friends! = THANK YOU Storchen - we will be back very soon!

Room Tip: Especially the rooms with a French Balcony facing the River is just LOVELY!!! (4´th floor).

The true reason to choose the Storchen--if you can get a river view room--is the location. Staff are efficient and generally friendly. Again, the dining location on the river is superb, but the food and service were good but not great. Rooms are fairly small, but very clean; perhaps a bit dated.

We only had time for two nights in Zurich, the Storchen was a perfect choice, our room had great view over the river, the staff were alwasy friendly and service impecable, excelent breakfast, lovely courtyard for light lunch and drinks, dinner on the terrace with view of river and the city as dusk falls is the perfect romantic spot, and the food is superb!

Room Tip: pay a little extra and get a river view
