My Son (14) and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights as part of a 3 week European trip. This area and hotel was one of the highlights. The rooms were fantastic and the hotel had such a relaxed feel. The staff were very helpful at anytime. I would definitely recommend it!

Everything is perfect about this place: located (literally) next to the Matterhorn eggs, very friendly and efficient staff, very impressive family suites, great breakfast, a very nice pool and welness area including outdoor sunbathing, and an overall feeling of having everything to one's self (don't go there for bar ambiance though!)! Spent a week here with a family of four in April 2010 and again in April 2011. Absolutely delicious.

We just came back from a truly delightful stay at the Matterhorn Focus hotel. 4 days in Zermatt were highlighted by an exceptional staff, a fantastic hotel ("garni") and surroundings that will take your breath away. If you have never been to Zermatt and are looking for the ultimate outdoor paradise, come here. If you want to have the ultimate outdoor experience AND stay in the best location in town with modern, private and comfortable ammenities - stay at the Matterhorn Focus in Zermatt. Sonji, Christian and their staff have developed a unique setting that will impress, relax and stimulate the senses.

My wife and I arrived at the train station where we were met with the porter in the property's electric cable car to take us back to the hotel. We went into the Matterhorn Focus tunnel which took us to the lift to the reception area. Met with a welcome drink and it got better from there.

We were there to ski. The location of the hotel to the main ski area and the facilities to accomodate our equipment were top notch. If you don't intend on skiing but intend on outdoor hiking, you are close to the trails leading to Zmutt, Stafel or Hornlihut....places I plan to visit again in the near future.

You really can't go wrong here. Zermatt is great and staying at the Matterhorn Focus in Zermatt makes it the best.

Room Tip: rooms accommodate different group sizes, all grea!

We were 4 guys sharing the family suite - a very well laid out room with good attention to detail. Fantastic views overlooking the Matterhorn and the daily breakfast was a good and fresh spread. Staff were very friendly and attentive, fairly knowledgable of the local restaurants. Spa was awesome, except that the pools were not quite hot enough. It was my first trip to Zermatt and that hotel left with a great impression of Zermatt. Will definetely be back...

Fantastic location for slopes, great hosts, lovely breakfast, great room, stunning view.
No need for a hotel restaurant for evening meals when there are so many great places to eat in Zermatt within 10 min walk.

Stayed here for a ski trip with my brother. The architecture and design of the hotel is gorgeous. Breakfast was offered by the hotel and the food was great; perfect for a full day of snowboarding. The cost was a bit steep, but the stay was amazing.

Stayed here during the mid term break in Feb. The only "Plus" is the location which is literally a 3-minute walk to Matterhorn Express. Lack of a restaurant for a 4 star hotel is a major issue. Standard of our room was no better than what we expected at this price range. The breakfast area reminded me of restaurants in airports which try to be cool but miss it by a long mile.

In summary, its fine if you are desperate to ski in Zermatt and cant find another hotel.
