Made reservations for my parents to celebrate their birthdays at the Storchen and it was the best place to make new memories! The renovation was just completed the same week of their stay. The style is retro chic with lots of creme, white and grays. Their room was luxurious and spacious with an extra couch and two chairs to enjoy...

This hotel is located in the old town and is within walking distance of the city centre. I love this hotel because it is terribly old fashioned and is lovely and quaint. The restaurant is excellent and I do not think I have ever had a bad meal there. The service is attentive and friendly and not stuffy or overbearing...

We highly enjoyed our stay at the Storchen. The location is a great base for exploring the old city of Zurich, shopping, art museums and restaurants all nearby. Rooms are lovely, very comfortable. The staff also took good care of us and breakfast was quite tasty.

Great location fronting the water, exactly as the photograph shows. Excellent service by all hotel staff from point of first email contact through daily contact all the way to check out. Just a tremendous experience. I definitely would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a uniquely Swiss experience.
