Hotel Storchen, Zurich

Sitting pretty on the banks of the River Limmat, the Storchen is the oldest hotel in Zurich and a unique place to stay by any standards. This is the ultimate spot to soak up the ambience of Old Town as you watch the changing colors of Zurich’s skyline reflected across the water. And if you’re lucky enough to visit over New Year, you’ll have the best view of the city’s spectacular fireworks.


The Storchen is just 9 miles from the airport, so you can be checked in and enjoying river views from your terrace within half an hour of getting in the car. And you’ll be right in the heart of Old Town, which means you can choose to soak up the city’s history and culture in the surrounding streets or retreat to your room for some quiet reflection.


With just 66 rooms and suites, the hotel feels utterly luxurious while keeping an intimate and homely feel. The rooms have traditional and elegant décor, with a peaceful array of blues, greys and yellows, and decadent marble bathrooms. It’s all quietly understated, allowing the real wow factor to be the unrivalled views across the Limmat; which is what this hotel is all about.


The Storchen doesn’t rest on its laurels. It has a prime spot on the river, but it continues to deliver beyond the location and the views. Take the food, for example. There are several options to suit your hunger levels and mood: from Rôtisserie, their revered riverside restaurant and Barchetta, an informal all-day café; to Boulevard Café, where you can enjoy al fresco drinks and dining, and the buzzy Storchen Bar for cocktails with live music, to kick-start or finish your evening.
