Matterhorn Focus Design Hotel Reviews : A Memorable Stay In Zermatt

Table of content

During our trip to Switzerland in Spring, we visited Zermatt for 2 days. We were looking for hotel room with a great view and provided the comfortable level to stay.

In the end, we chose to stay for 2 nights in Matterhorn Focus Design Hotel. The hotel is located at a strategic location and as the name implies, has rooms with a very focused Matterhorn view.

In this blog post, I will share with you my experience during my two-night stay in Matterhorn Focus hotel.

Arrival At Zermatt

Zermatt is a car-free town, so prior to our arrival at Zermatt by train, we booked a shuttle service with Matterhorn Focus hotel to pick us up at the station.

We informed the staff via Agoda booking chat on what time to pick us up. When we arrived, the shuttle service was already waiting for us in front of the train satation.

It was a small shuttle that could fit around 4 person with luggages. The journey from the station to the hotel took around 10 minutes.

Check-in Matterhorn Focus Design Hotel

We arrived at the small tunnel that was linked to the hotel. The driver helped with our luggages and we took the lift up to the hotel lobby.

The hotel lobby was very cozy, with a desk and two receptionists helping with the check-ins.

The receptionist was very helpful and welcoming. We were each treated with a welcome drink. They have a wide range of welcome drinks to select from, like wine, beer, coffee, tea, juices and soft drinks.

We sit on the couch of the lounge waiting for our room to be ready. 

Lucky for us, during that time, everyday 2-4pm, they were serving tea-time treats for the hotel guests. So we got to enjoy the treats while waiting for the room too.

Room With Mountain View

After half an hour of waiting, our room was finally readied. 

The receptionist guided us to our room at second floor which was just one floor above the lobby.

When we stepped into our room, we were amazed by the marvellous view. The full glass window provided an obstructed view of the mountain. Although we did not get the Matterhorn view room, the mountain view room was beyond fabulous.

Let the pictures tell the story!

The Breakfast

Our room came with complimentary breakfast buffet. The next morning after freshening up, we got to the dining area to enjoy our breakfast.

They served a good range of breakfast choices, with healthy selection of fruits and yoghurts.

The environment was very cozy. The hotel staff even surprised me with a birthday cake on my birthday. How sweet they are!

Hot Pool

The hotel has a hot pool area with indoor and outdoor connecting together. Guests can chill at the pool either indoor or outdoor.

When we learn that The Ritz-Carlton Langkawi was known as one of the Top 5 Resorts in Asia and also Top 25 Best Resorts in the World by Condes Nast Readers’ Choice, we know that it is truly one of the resorts that visitors to Langkawi should not miss.

Checking Out

On check out day, after breakfast, we proceeded to checkout the hotel. The staff also sent us to the train station with the buggy service.

Till next time!

Overall Impression

It was my first time in Zermatt, and I firmly believe that where you stay can significantly influence your overall experience of the place.

Frankly, Zermatt is one of my favorite places in Switzerland, largely due to our wonderful stay at the Matterhorn Focus Design Hotel, where the staff took excellent care of us. We yearn to come back next time !
