“Fantastic, room, staff and location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

This is the place to stay in Zermatt. Beautiful hotel right next to the gondola lift and a rental spot. The hotel has all the amenities you could want plus an excellent staff who really seems to go out of their way to make sure you have the best stay possible. It is an easy 10 minute walk to town.

The rooms are a nice size, very comfortable with spectacular views.

While the hotel does not have a restaurant they do have a limited dinner menu and will happily order take out from a very good restaurant across the path which they will either serve to you at one of their tables or give you what ever utensils you need to take it to your room.

Our whole experience was fabulous and we would definitely look to stay here again if and when we returned to Zermatt.

despite being at the edge of town, this is definitely one of the best located hotels in Zermatt with it's proximity to the gondola, and the lift up from the final run of the day. The views of the matterhorn are second to none, and the overall desing and decor of the hotel is inspired. Honestly no negative criticisms or comments.

This was our fourth visit to he Matterhorn Focus and it is still as good as ever! We have been skiing in Zermatt for over 15 years and the Focus is definitely our preferred place to stay. The staff are friendly and helpful, the hotel interiors quirky and location is as good as it gets when getting to the slopes in the morning. Go and 'enjoy you privacy'.

We had a wonderful stay at the Focus. It is a design hotel, with attentive service and conveniantly located near the ski lift. It also has a nice ind/out pool, spa and relax area, which with loved apres-ski/walk. We loved to pay attention to Julen's details. Two (very) minor considerations, that certainly did not spoil the experience: 1-the hotel does not have a restaurant (although it has a wonderful breakfast); this is a minor problem since Zermatt is crowded with good restaurant options; 2- In some rooms, you can hear the sounds of the lift in early morning.

This is one of the best place you can get in Zermatt - near to the cable care, with storage room for ski & boots, healthy and delicious breakfast, warm atmosphere, amazing swimming pool with open air area, very freindly and helpful staff, rooms with spectacular view of Matterhorn and all you need for skiing and pleasure.
I definitely fell in love with this hotel! :))

Room Tip: You would have to choose between rooms with bathtub or with showers & fireplace.

A really wonderful place. The views of the Matterhorn are worth every penny. I shall never forget in my whole life being able to lie in bed and see the snowy peaks against a blue sky without even taking my head off the pillow. The breakfast is superb, extra healthy choices are on offer - no overcooked eggs and dried out sausages in sight - organic, fresh and full of flavor. The staff are extremely helpful, nothing seems too much trouble and they actually appeared genuinely happy in their work. Book it, you won't regret it.

Room Tip: Get the best room you can afford and look forward to a special time

Modern, edgy hotel with very helpful and unfailingly pleasant staff. Great location next to a major lift. Our room was well appointed and very comfortable. Breakfast is self service with anything you could want available. We really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Briethorn room is excellent for a family and has stunning views of the Matterhorn!
