A small typical mountain hotel with lovely flowers in the windows. Booking was easy on the phone, they are very flexible and very kind. Nice view from all the rooms with balcony. Not the newest hotel but clean and well maintained. Just what you need for a mountain trip. Both for summer and winter it is ideal. Breakfast is small... More

Spent one week at the Hotel Carina. It is located toward the end of town but still centrally located for the bus or a walk to the lifts. It is small and cozy. The hotel is owned by a wonderful owner-manager who assumed responsibility from her family and now runs it. There is a nice living room where she sometimes... More

If you are looking for a clean, quiet B&B at a moderate cost, which is quite unusual for Zermatt, Carina is it. The rooms are not fancy, but clean and well kept. The new spa is fairly simply, but does the job. Small additions like a towelrack, some music and water would lift it further, this is something mgmt should... More

Stayed here with a group at their behest. The price was very "right" and Frau Biner runs a great little hotel. The rooms are basic 3star but (mine at least) has a fab view of the Matterhorn. One sleeps well - the only outside sound is for the few minutes when Chez Heini lets out next door after the dessert-performance... More

In 2002 we found Hotel Carina to meet all of our expectations. Since then we have stayed there in 2008 and last month in 2011. We would not even consider staying elsewhere. Zermatt is beautiful, but comes at considerate cost. The fees for our room are fair, much more so than some of the more glamorous advertised hotels. You get... More

We stayed at Carina Hotel July 15-19, 2011. This family-owned hotel is a mere 8 minute walk (I timed it) from the train station and major shopping street. But no need to walk it with your luggage--just contact the hotel from the phone board near the station, and for a very small fee (much less than a taxi) they will... More

It is a poor hotel compared with standard level of hotels in this city. We can say that is a little seedy. The lift has a clear security problem (mainly for children) due to lack of internal door. They lie regarding their pictures and services. The pictures showing external appearence are not real. They do not provide sauna services as... More

I booked the Carina at he train station in Zermatt. The owner picked me up within 5 minutes and also up-graded my single room to a double room that is spacier and also features a bath tub. The Carina is situated close to the Sunegga train and the village can be reached within 10 to 15 minutes walking. The owners... More

This hotel offers a good starting point for exploring this part of the Swiss Alps. A very friendly welcome by one of the owners, who without our asking upgraded our rooms at no extra charge, because the mountain view rooms were available anyway at the time (end of summer season). Great rooms, great Matterhorn view from the balcony (wheather permitting).... More

We have just returned from our annual group skiing trip which was in Zermatt this year. My partner and I usually arrange it and the family-owned and run 3-star Carina offered the best ski package deal for the 9 of us. We were pleasantly surprised by this little B&B-type hotel set within a 5-minute walk of the Sunnega lift. The... More
