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

Off to a great start when a friendly guy from the hotel picked us up in an electric buggy at the station and took us to the hotel, pointing out useful places along the route. The entrance to the hotel is via a short underground tunnel (think the entrance to a Bond villain's lair) before being whisked up via a... More

This hotel is family run. The couple that run it stepped out of the finance sector and invested their lives into a one-of-a-kind hotel in Zermatt. The staff is friendly beyond expectation. I stayed their for 7 nights with my Fiance. We are from San Francisco, Ca so coming to the swiss alps we were not sure what to expect.... More

If you're in Zermatt and want Swiss-clean, you really must go stay here. It's a perfect hotel in terms of cleanliness, super modern cool, and AFFORDABLE. Chris who owns the place is a young entrepreneur. He's not going to tolerate old stodgy boring or any of those things. He keeps it "tuned" like a car enthusiast would keep his car... More

Amazing attention to every detail from indoor outdoor pool, sauna and spa to breakfast. Stayed in a suite with kids, beautiful room. Outstanding view of the Matterhorn. The front desk is extremely thoughtful(my husband forgot my bag by mistake and they remembered and chased him down!) and helpful. Thanks so much for this. One of the most relaxing places I... More

We spent one night in this hotel as a couple for a break. The overall rating of this hotel is excellent. The location is excellent: just near one of the cable car to go to the ski slopes and 5 minutes walking to the nearest restaurants and bar in Zermatt. Positive: Very friendly staff and down to earth Checkin very... More

This year was the third year our family has stayed at The Focus and we are never disappointed. The service is impeccable which matches the facilities with spectacular views of the Matterhorn from your room. The service begins even before you arrive. They will pick your ski equipment and luggage up from the train station before you arrive. It will... More
