“Overall very pleasant stay.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2010

We recently spent 4 nights in the Hotel Carlina while we were skiing in La Clusaz. It is located just a few minute's walk from a larger street which has a good selection of restaurants and shops etc. It has a particularly comfortable library style bar/lounge with an excellent selection of books. It also has a pool table, chess set etc if that is your thing. The main ski lifts are about a 5 min walk from the Hotel. It is a bit of a walk back up the hill from the lifts in the evening but the good news is that you can store your equipment in a rental shop just beside the lifts (for free). Rooms were comfortable, plenty of fresh linen, towels etc, Breakfast was fine. The only negative comment I would make is that there is a charge for the use of the Sauna & Steam rooms etc which I thought was a bit cheeky as the hotel is not particularly cheap. Overall very pleasant stay.

We stayed at the Carlina for two nights during our summer driving tour round the alps. Obviously things like the proximity to the slopes and lifts wasn't really relevant to us, but I imagine it must be a reasonable walk to get down to the bottom lift during the winter.

The hotel itself is very pleasant and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The swimming pool and fitness centre/spa facilities were very welcome after our long drive up the mountain. Again, in Winter it must be great to do and unwind down there, with a panoramic view of the slopes.

We opted for a South facing room, which cost a bit more but was well worth it as we got a balcony with views of the slopes and town. I think the North facing rooms just get a window looking over the back of the hotel.

The room was quite compact, but still comfortable and had alpine charm with wood panneling througout. You get a TV with a couple of english speaking channels, but no mini bar or anthing like that. We were hoping for a double bed, but as is the way with most alpine hotels, we got two singles pushed together. Not very romantic but it was only for two nights. We did at least get double sheets and blankets.

The bar downstairs has a pool tabe which helped pass the time one evening and there is also an in-house restaurant which we only attended for the Breakfast each morning (which was perfectly adequate).

The centre of La Clusaz is easily accessible - it's uphill to get home though of course! There are plently of activities in La Clusaz during the summer and we found it to be a really nice buzzing village. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

My boyfriend and I have just got back from a wonderful weekend skiing in La Clusaz! As a beginner I chose La Clusaz as I read it had many green and blue runs and I was not disappointed. This is a great place to learn and there are even a few side by side beginner and intermediate trails meeting at the bottom, which were perfect for us as my boyfriend is an advance skier.

The trip was booked last minute and the Carlina was the only hotel avaliable and for 760euros for 3 nights half board I had high expectations. When we arrived in Geneva we took a taxi and were in La Clusaz within the hour. Carlina is in a great location, just 5mins from the slopes and shops. The staff were very welcoming and I loved the decor. However the only downfall are the tiny tiny rooms! The smallest room I have ever stayed in and the bathroom was even smaller. Also the beds were very uncomfortable but after a long day skiing I could sleep anywhere!
The restaurant was maybe a bit stiff but the food was delicious. Lots of choice for breakfast with the best pastries! A set meal in the evening but the menu is all in French so you might want to check with the waiter before you order.

I would definitely return to La Clusaz and Hotel Carlina however I might try somewhere slightly cheaper next time.
