An amazing hotel from the 13th century with Swiss hospitality Location along the lake 3 minutes walk from Banhoff Strasse is great.Excellent staff at the front desk and concierge.Great breakfast room .Rooms are excellent although mattresses not hard enough and stronger AC on hot days will be ideal.

Dear Guest thank you very much for your kind and detailed rating and it is great to see that you had spent a few great days in Zurich and in our Hotel. And you are correct, when the temperature outside gets over 30 degrees, which is very rare the AC wont be able to go below 19. We look forward...

The Storchen is a beautifully maintained old building in the middle of Zurich's old town. With a lovely interior, excellent facilities, polite and friendly staff, one really is in the lap of luxury. The bedroom was well appointed with lots of thought as to what a traveller might need. Breakfast was sumptuous! The position of the hotel is also exceptional...

The location is absolutely the best for walking around in Zurich. Their breakfasts are a treat and they can assist with outside dining reservations and helping with tour guides. We loved their cozy bar in the evenings!

The Storchen offers Swiss-style intimacy at the very top of the range of hotel amenities. It's a boutique hotel whose staff, top to bottom, can look you in the eye, listen to you, and offer genuine interaction. No formulaic patter here. On the river side, the view of the old city and the muted hubbub of the waterway and the...

Great restaurant terrace overlooking the river and the swans that have taken up residence there. Very friendly and helpful staff. Our corner room was elegant and spacious, and had an adjustable bed, but...

This property has lots of charm, but also all modern conveniences. The location is ideal in the heart of the old town. It is ideal for business or pleasure. The Rotesserie is quiet at dinner, and bustling at lunch with bankers and clients. The service is a mixture of Swiss efficiency and American friendliness.
