Quick stay of two nights in a junior suite with two kids (6&8) and found the location ideal. Close to everything we wanted to see and do and very friendly staff, ready to help with anything. Good size room with everything we needed and a good breakfast with a terrific view. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed at the Storchen for a few days over Christmas last week. It is a lovely hotel right in the center of town. The location was perfect as you could walk to everything in the city center. The staff was so friendly and welcoming. They even communicated with us prior to our arrival to let us know about certain...

I went to my every year business trip to Zurich and stayed at Storchen Hotel as usual. Unfortunately, this year there booked 1 classic queen single room. It was something funny.

Great location and very nice view of the river, one of the best. Traditional rooms, easy access to both sides of the river. I would recommend storchen to anyone who wants to be in the center of zurich. Everything is within walking distance and only a 12-15mins walk from zurich HB.
