Photo of Storchen

“Centrally situated in Zurich's Old Town, on the River Limmat. The Storchen has been a hotel for 650 years. Legend has it that it was named after two rare black storks which nested on its roof. Hospitable, excellent service & good food. Bedrooms are 80s style but ideal for business or pleasure.”
