This was probably the best refuge I stayed in on my Tour de Mont Blanc trek this summer. The place was busy and full, but the WC was clean, the showers available, and the rooms very clean. I stayed in a triple. The food was also good and offered a variety. Great place!

Unlike some of the accommodation we stayed in on the TMB, Rifugio Bonatti was comfortable even when operating near full capacity. Others have described the many ways it delights, so I'll just add a note about the showers, which are unlimited in time but very limited in hot water. If you run hot water full blast, you'll use up your... More

All the positive reviews on this page speak for themselves, but my personal favorite things: 1. The drying room. Amazing. How do other refuges not have this? It's just a tiny room with lots of heaters and clotheslines, our clothes were warm and toasty by morning. 2. The shower system. The token system is genius, and is a great way... More

charming refugio that had a spotless double room that was quite spacious. Really appreciated the drying room for our laundry. Lovely dinner and nice breakfast. The decor featuring the famous climber Bonatti was also really inspiring. The best refugio on the TMB! A great aspect with spectacular mountain views.

Lovely views all around the rifugio with tables and chairs outside to enjoy a drink and the spectacular views. The managers were very friendly and helpful. We booked a mixture of private rooms and dorms and everyone was happy with the accommodation. My room had a great view of the mountains and was very spacious with places to put our... More

As rifugios go, this was very good - indeed the best one we stayed in. It has an excellent position looking at the south side of the Mont Blanc massive and, if the sun is shining, it has a lovely sun terrace where it is possible to soak up the rays and have lunch. The family who run the rifugio... More

The refuge sits on the ridge over Val Ferret faces the massif and has beautiful views. The refuge in one of the best we have stayed in. a lot of attention to details and to the comfort of the hikers. The owners know the hikers needs and attend to them. The dormitories are clean and well kept, on the ground... More

This is the standard by which all other huts should be judged...it's just suberb. Fantastic location with stunning views, modern refurbished rooms with very clean bathroom facilities (not ensuite) and great food served at the communal dining. Impossible to fault in any way. Perfect :)
