We have stayed all over the world. This is undoubtedly one of the finest hotels we have ever had the fortune of staying in. Starting with a warm do anything for you staff to incredible rooms, spa and pool area, delicious breakfast daily. Excellent location to lift, a short walk to town which was needed daily after the wonderful Zermatt cuisine. We will be back, already planning next trip.

Due to unfortunate circumstances, we arrived very tired and emotionally drained to Hotel Matterhorn Focus in January 2014. We were greeted so warmly and the owners are lovely . They had gone out of their way to help us out before our arrival to deal with our loss of my husbands father which had impacted greatly on us.
Our room was fantastic and we were able to spread all our gear out and settle in. Having a spectacular view up to the Matterhorn from our bed or bath was very special. Great having two separate basins. One in the bathroom and one in dressing area near cupboard which I used to leave all my makeup and girly needs on the bench.
Nice lounge and there is a bath to soak up the view if you wish . It feels like you are right in the mountains and the 2 ski likes whoosh close by the window. They can't see in though because the windows are all mirrored. There is a nice wrap around balcony too.
Breakfasts were fantastic. We stayed in one night and had soup in the bar because we were tired after travelling from Australia.
The hotel is perfectly placed to hop straight on the lifts in the morning with a choice of 2 bubbles to go on. Ski out finishes just in front across the river. There is a great après ski place not far from the end of the run. Lots of fun.
The interiors of the hotel are super artistic and interesting. The artist who did a lot of them is responsible for some of Zermatts most expensive chalets to rent, so to get his style at this price is amazing. The chandeliers are incredible.
The pool and wellness area are lovely. I don't normally swim at ski hotels but I couldn't resist because of the beautiful lighting, views and ambience. Really comfortable wooden beds to lie on around the pool.
The staff were very helpful with recommending places for dinner. Matterhorn Focus doesn't do full dinner service but does have soups and snacks and will order in for you. The restaurants we went to, we walked to and from and were happy with all three.
My husband and I love walking around in snow so we don't mind that the hotel isn't in the centre of Zermatt. We like close to ski lifts as a priority. Numerous taxis and buses are in Zermatt anyway.

If you like artistic, personalized, interesting, cool and something more boutique like, then this hotel is perfect. Ski storage is great. Heated boot storage. Super comfy bed. European chic.
We loved this place and recommend it highly for couples.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a Matterhorn view and a bath if you feel like lying back and soaking it all in.

Zermatt and this boutique style hotel was the perfect place to celebrate my wife's birthday!

This was our 1st stay at the Matterhorn Focus and I agree with previous comments, the hotel and its host as well as staff are very impressive. Hotel is modern and well-designed. From the moment we arrived, we felt very relaxed and welcome. Pick up from the train station was smooth and allowed plenty of time for a first stroll through Zermatt after check-in. We reserved the Matterhorn Suite and two deluxe rooms, all with a view to the Matterhorn just to find out that one of the deluxe rooms has been upgraded to the Dufour Suite. Nice surprise!

All our rooms were tastefully decorated and very clean. Also the public areas were cosy and clean. Breakfast was good with lots of choice, although not exceptional. However, the owners and the staff were extremely nice and provided fresh supply once requested.

Indoor/outdoor pool was great. The location of the hotel is very good for skiers, right next to the Matterhorn Glacier Paradise cable car. Also ski hire shop is next to the hotel if required. Restaurants and bars are reachable in around 10 minutes walking which was no issue at all.

Zermatt and the Matterhorn Focus was awesome and we will certainly return to this hotel.

Thank you!

This is our 2nd stay at Matterhorn Focus and we have been very impressed both times. It has a luxury boutique feel whilst being very friendly and informal. As many people have said - the staff are happy to help you in any way they can.The rooms and spa are are exceptionally clean and well decorated and presented. One of the best locations for skiing as so close to the main lift.
Breakfast is a buffet arrangement with lots of choice - the only thing to mention is that they do not operate a restaurant in the evening so you have to go out for dinner - we like going out in the evenings so fine for us but may not suit everyone:-)

This hotel has it all--great location for skiers, great breakfasts, bar, fireplace living room, spa, and a great room with a view of the Matterhorn. Plus the owners are extremely nice. We stayed here over the 2014 New Years holiday for 7 nights. Everything was perfect.

Stayed for 12 nights January 2014. From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave they can't do enough for you. It's an absolutely beautiful hotel right next to Matterhorn glacier gondola, so perfect location for skiing...100 meter walk to the lift. This is the main lift for access to 80% of the mountain terrain. It's about a 10 minute walk to the centre of town to most of the restaurants and shopping.

The facility is fantastic, great indoor outdoor pool and wellness centre, rooms are beautiful, breakfast buffet has a huge European selection of food... and the staff.... the most attentive, genuinely helpful and pleasant of any hotel I have stayed in anywhere in the world. Complementary snack and drinks in the afternoon. Just love the place and can't wait to go back.
