    Our first trip to Zurich will never be this fantastic without staying at the Hotel Storchen. Staff are very helpful and attentive. Room is spacious for a family. Location is perfect for both shopping and sight seeing. Only a comment from a seven year old boy...there is no Cartoon tv channels :) We will definitely go back to the hotel if we will have a chance to stop by Zurich again.

    There is no better experience than staying in a Swiss hotel, great attention to detail, excellent service and well trained multi lingual staff.The Zum Storchen is no exception and is located accross the Limat from the old town amd in easy walking distance of shops and restaurants of Bahnhofstrasse. It has a great dining balcony overlooking the Limat. An excellent hotel and great stay.

    Its an expansive hotel

    comfortable rooms. Good service. fair location great local view if in the right rooms.

    Fabulous

    Excellent staff, genuinely concerned about their guests, from the person opening the door, to the front desk staff, to the cleaners and the breakfast staff, as well as the hotel manager who even brought some hot water for my baby to my room. Hotel with its own pier, reception has timetable for boats. Fresh fruit in the room (really delicious...I Was amazed how the fruit was perfectly ripe), gorgeous fresh flowers that came with the hot water to make baby milk I ordered, very nice vanity products, extra products that could be bought, excellent Egyptian cotton for the towels, excellent bed in the room, yummy hand-made good-bye present of chocolates on check-out.Many languages spoken at reception. Guest list of staff at breakfast had list of languages spoken, based on booking...what a great idea. An amazing tradition of hotellerie...very impressive!!! Great location and beautiful decor in breakfast room....loved the terasse as well for breakfast over the Limatt river-

    A transparent chocolate box from a previous guest was left under the desk in the bedroom, a few stains on carpet in bedroom, more time is needed for allocated cleaning per room. I had a single room and was given a free cot for my daughter under two which had bedlinen for her, as she is already 1 1/2 years old. The cot had a hole of about 15 cms at the back, looks a little shabby for such a famous hotel- Both bathroom and bedroom were a little small to my taste, despite the fact that I had a single room with a double bed, I felt that with a cot in particular it became very small. Rooms could use an update in decor, more antiques, nice paintings.

    Superb

    The marvellous location and room with a view of the Limmat. The restaurant, both breakfast and dinner, were excellent, though expensive.

    Only the expense - not their fault, as all of Switzerland is at present highly expensive for American travellers. But anywhere comparable elsewhere in Europe, for a three day stay, with the same cuisine and amenities, would have cost two thousand dollars, not three. Would recommend only to rich friends.
