sorry, but i cant stop with all that positive phrases about this amazing hotel. i visited switzerland very often, and to be honest, the 4 star rated hotels are mainly not really 4star hotels like in other european countries. The Focus is stylish, friedly (hotel and staff) and has the perfect location. The rooms are spacious with a wonderful view... More

My boyfriend and I had been looking forward to our holiday in Europe for a long time. The culmination of the trip was a ski trip in Zermatt, so we treated ourselves to a suite at Matterhorn focus for a week. The hotel looked beautiful from the website. We picked it because it looked lovely and modern, without being cold.... More

I just returned from a week skiing in Zermatt with my teenage daughter, and I couldn't be more pleased with our experience at the Matterhorn Focus. I wanted to share with my daughter why I love skiing in the Alps, and the Focus helped me achieve this fabulously. What I found particularly impressive: Excellent Location for Skiing: Focus puts you... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our first ski trip to Zermatt, but were quite disappointed with the Focus. We were aware of some of the limitations before arriving, thanks to Tripadvisor and the hotel's website, but may have underestimated how irritating some of these things would be. Most of the issues sound like minor quibbles, but we were paying about £260 (GBP)... More

We booked the hotel matterhorn focus for our honeymoon. On arrival we were greeted by friendly staff, offered a welcome drink and food. Nothing was too much effort. The room was out of this world with amazing views, fire place and huge bath tub, just like on the web site. The hotel is ideally situatied next to the lift station... More

First of all the Matterhorn Focus looks like Z gallery exploded inside it. The Matterhorn Focus is only great if you have a room in the House A, not sure if the rooms in house B are as nice as house A but house C rooms look nothing like the rooms that they are promoting and selling. The room was... More

Our 12yr old daughter was a bit concerned that we were staying in a glass hotel with a bath right in the middle of our room and right next to the Klein Matterhorn cable car. A quick inspection from outside confirmed that you can do anything you want during the day without fear of being seen but when the lights... More

It was wonderfull to stay at Focus Matterhorn. A great surprise. Since the hotel is brand new, there wasn´t too many comments in trip advisor about it so I choose by the price and by the information from the website. The first impression was good when I called to the Hotel and the owner answer the phone. It sounds like... More

Our stay was superb in every way. We stayed for a week's skiing and were really impressed about the following: 1) Hotel is ideally placed next to ski lifts (minimal walking in ski boots / no waiting for buses) 2) Staff were outstandingly pleasant and helpful - nothing was too much for them 3) Room was very comfortable, stylishly designed...

Stayed for Xmas 2009 and chose a hotel without dining so that we could sample the restaurants in Zermatt for a change! This is a beautiful stylish "design" hotel by Henz Julen - all glass steel and wood with fabulous views and the most amazing swimming pool. The lounge is warm and cosy set around a central fire housed in... More
