Stunning location on the edge of the far end of the lake in Zurich. You are literally on the waters edge . The hotel also backs onto the edge of the old Town, so it is brilliantly located.

The hotel is centrally situated in the historic old town of Zurich with great views of the river and Grossmunster church. Breakfast at the Storchen is always a real treat, too. The room we had was beautiful placed to view the surroundings. And as always the service in the hotel is first class.

Great hotel if you're traveling with pets. We had a night to spend in Zurich between Austria and heading back to the states. I googled "pet friendly" and this came up.
