My husband and I stayed at the Matterhorn Focus for a week in January 2016. I loved everything about this hotel and would stay here again if I returned to Zermatt. --Very friendly staff, eager to help with ski slope information, restaurant reservations, booking a horse-and-carriage ride, ordering pizza, etc. The owner is also very friendly and stops by at...

Stayed at the Focus for 1 week in January 2016. Location of the hotel is perfect for the Express ski-lift and the ski hire shop. 15 minute walk into the village which is quite pleasant. Breakfast was delicious, with an excellent choice of hot and cold food, pastries, eggs, bacon etc. Very clean and stylishly decorated, the spa and pool... More

Just returned from a 5 night stay, and I really wish we didn't have to leave the Focus! The view from our room was fabulous, the ski lift is literally next door to the hotel, the staff is incredibly pleasant and helpful (a rarity at upscale hotels), breakfast (included) was excellent with ample choices, the room was cozy and modern,...

Our family stayed at the Matterhorn Focus for 8 nights during the Christmas/New Year festive season. This hotel must be the number one choice for ski lovers. Even though Zermatt was very crowded, things seemed to be a lot slower and more quiet at the hotel. The hotel is superbly located opposite the ski lift and the ski lockers are... More

If you love views, a boutique hotel experience, and not having to lug your skis around town, this is the place. Delicious breakfast. Staff booked all of our top reservations for lunch and dinner all over the mountain and après-ski. The gondola was right out the door. Charming ten-minute walk along the river to downtown. If you want the full-service... More

This place is amazing - our room was so well designed the views are unprecedented, the common areas are well appointed. The indoor outdoor "hot" pool is one of the coolest I've ever seen. The spa has amazing facilities; steam, infrared, sauna etc. but being able to enjoy a glass of wine in the pools is really the highlight. Breakfast... More

We saw the "golden triangle" on the bed first thing we woke up. But I guess different room has slight different view. Ask if you prefer. They also has a wide... More
