Reviewed 16 February 2011

We've nothing to add over other reviews...

Excellent location near Matterhorn Express Gondola only a few minutes walk. Very stylish hotel, clean and comfortable with a good international breakfast spread and helpful staff.

It is a walk into town and although there are some local restaurant options the bulk are 10-15 minutes away when walking on snow/ice. The lack of fridge in room is disappointing although in winter the balcony can be used to chill drinks and the hot tub could do with a few more degrees C. Also be prepared to get naked in the Sauna.... Its not negotiable.

Sonya and Christian were wonderful hosts. They looked after our need every day. Perfect location close to the gondola. They did suggest exquisite restaurants close by.The spa and the pools are so nice and appreciated after skiing. Its exceptional.

No complaints at all. Everything about the hotel was just perfect - hotel, rooms,location.
Hotel & rooms were tastefully designed, very clean, warm and comfortable.
and Did I menton the view from the room?!
Hotel location - you probably could not find any better one ! right next to the ski lifts. literally 2 mins walk.
Zermatt village is beautiull itself, but hotel Focus makes it appreaciate even more!

The most enjoyable stay in Swiss.Will definately go back !

We just stayed at The Matterhorn Focus with our teenagers and recommend the hotel wholeheartedly. Sonja and Chris and Linda were all extraordinarily gracious hosts, making us feel well-cared for. We stayed in the Family Suite with a gorgeous view of the Matterhorn. Everything about the hotel, the service, the spa, the breakfasts, the location – right next to the lift, was perfect.

You won't be disappointed with your choice to stay at the Matterhorn Focus! The hotel is beautiful with a modern, yet very warm atmosphere; this is our second time staying at the hotel, our first time was on the edge of skiing season, so we had to come back to ski. The hotel is situated right next to the lifts and has the best views of the Matterhorn (we stayed in Room 401, it had a fireplace, and a fabulous view of the Matterhorn). To enter the hotel, you walk thru a very cool tunnel entry, which takes you to a glass elevator which takes you up through the center of the hotel. The spa facilities are fantastic if you are into that, we typically use the indoor/outdoor pool, very cool! The owners, Christian, and Sonja are super nice, they were born to be in this business, very welcoming. The staff is fantastic, they will bend over backwards to take care of all of your needs and many questions (thanks Linda, you were very helpful!).

This hotel will not dissapoint you, we stayed in a suite "Monte Rosa" which was beautiful, we faced on to the Matterhorn which is a truly awesome few from any hotel room!! The staff are so friendly and go out of their way to help. The location is one of the best in Zermatt, especially when skiing - the lift and sk hire is literally next to the hotel and a short walk takes you into the centre where there is an abundance of restaurants. Tip; for lunch on the slopes try the restaurant by the Riffelalp resort, food excellent and faces the sun in the afternoon.
We will definately visit this hotel again, true value for money in Zermatt!
