Good place for a business or for a short stay for friends. Nice rooms, quiet, free parking. Breakfast was good and the staff friendly. Sunday morning was a bit understaffed, the same lady was managing the breakfast room and the reception.

Service was unbelievably rude .If you don't enjoy your dinner ,they send 3 management team members to come into your room and dissect your reasons and meal .Beyond anything I've ever experienced before and I've travelled the world .The views are non existent ,lest I forget the demolished ,empty building the hotel faces .I suggest you'd try another hotel ,granted...

Good place to stay when you are on business trip to Aarau or surroundings as there is very good train connection to Aarau or Olten. Hotel itself is quite comfortable with nice restaurant. Breakfasts are modest and sufficient but uncompetitive vs other hotels in this area. The coffee is great, thought. Staff is friendly and helpful. One this is worth... More

Stayed at the hotel a number of times so far this year. The staff are excellent, very helpful . Especially the two young ladies who do the breakfast each day, I do not speak Swiss or German. Their English was excellent, they made me feel very welcome. Could not fault the hotel or the staff. Top Marks.

I've stayed in a number of hotels in the Aarau area over the years, but Storchen is definitely the best, particularly for customer service. Everybody there is friendly and helpful. It is a mid-sized family run hotel where the rooms are modern, clean and comfortable; the restaurant has a good selection of local cuisine and wine; the breakfast has everything... More

A well cared for hotel in a strategic location between Zurich, Basel and Biel. The rooms are clean and modern, the bathroom door did have a glas insert, but since I was alone I didn't really care. Free WIFI is working well and there are enough free parking spaces provided by the hotel. Only thing I would recommend working on... More

This was a lovely hotel. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. They found indoor spots for our bicycles. Rooms were well cared for, the restaurant was good. Two oddities - the bathroom had a large window to the bedroom. (?!?!?) Glass. Anyone in the bedroom could see exactly what you were doing in the bathroom. So we pasted some... More

This hotel is absolutely tragic. We wanted a hotel between Basel and Zurich, so we choose this hotel as it was a Best Western chain hotel. The room was very noisy. We could hear the train that was passing by every hour. We could hear the bell of the church every morning at 6 oclock. The claening lady was coming... More

While visiting friends nearby, we wanted to try a different hotel from the Aarau hotel we normally stay at in this area. Well, we were disappointed in the Hotel Storchen. We called in advance as we were 3 adults so we wanted to know if they had a large enough room for us. They had what they called a Suite... More
