This is a new property, built in 2011 I believe. And eclectic, but in a good way! There were so many unusual touches, different styles that seem to blend perfectly with the hotel's modern appearance. We were picked up at the train by an electric van, which brought us up to the hotel, into a tunnel, where we got on... More

Beautiful hotel, in a beautiful spot in car-free Zermatt, Focus is by far the best place we stayed in during our trip to Switzerland. It was so good, that we basically compared every other place we went to, to this one. We stayed in two different rooms in the 3rd floor: a Junior suite and one of the double rooms.... More

This is just a great hotel. The staff are all VERY nice and helpful. The public spaces are cool and our room was pretty much perfect. Breakfast, which is included, was the perfect base for a day of hiking. We will return.

This hotel is situated approx. 15 minutes walking from the train station, the hotel has private taxi, as desribed below. Beatiful scenery, brilliant view from the terrace of the suite. From the moment we arrived i really like the whole place, warm welcome (free drink is included). Lobby is really nice, bit like chalet style, but still modern. Rooms are... More

I was clueless as to what hotel I was going to as this hotel was chosen by a travel agent. When I got there was was surprised when I entered the room as it was definitely the best location - I could see the Matterhorn from my bed; 2 bed suite; so I had the best view. The staff was... More

My husband and I stayed at the Focus for one night recently while visiting Zermatt, and really wish we’d planned to stay longer! We absolutely *loved* this hotel.

We've been there in June. The architecture is so nice I would like to say that was perfect, but there are some small details which don't match neither the rating nor the price (there are not really off-season prices) of this fantastic place. The architecture is wonderful, with huge floor to ceiling windows: in our rooms, the whole side, facing... More
