Recently refurbished and now very well presented. Great selection of drinks and food. Very pleasant service and good ambiance. Lovely location alongside the river. Not cheap but that's Zurich! Worth a visit.

Easy walking distance to the lake as well as to main station . Also brilliantly serviced by the tram system with the Rathaus stop only a minutes walk away ....

Main points - top location on the Limmat and right in the Altstadt. - warm and professional staff from the arrival, the check-in,...

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...
