If you are walking around Mont Blanc you have limited choices about where to stay without too many logistical gymnastics. This was my first 'hut' on the tour, having started in Courmayeur so I did not fully appreciate how comfortable it was. As others have said, it's top notch. Roomy, clean sleeping areas, we were in a six bed room.... More

great place, great staff (very friendly and informative), great food! (no polenta!) the only recommendation: (that is relevant to all the refugi) - have a more comfortable place to sit and meet other hikers.

Bonatti is spectacular, as has been described by other reviewers. This rifugio sets the standard and exceeds those on the TMB. I have not been to all the huts on the route, but I cannot imagine they match up to this one. It has a great location along the mountain range and the family operation makes it more enjoyable.

This was a lovely refuge to stay at on the Tour du Mont Blanc. The refuge was recently renovated with beautiful wooden beams. We were in a spacious dormitory room with plenty of room between people, comfortable beds, and plenty of shelving. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The dinner was generous and filling. Breakfast was the usual breads,... More

This refuge is a MUST stop for anyone hiking the TMB! Amazing, jaw-droppingly gorgeous views that are simply mesmerizing. Simple wholesome food. Accommodations are basic but comfortable. Family who runs it was helpful and friendly.,Well worth the uphill slog!!

This was by far the best refuge we stayed at on our Tour du Mont Blanc. The refuge seemed newly renovated with beautiful wooden beams and paneling throughout. We stayed in a spacious dormitory room with plenty of room between people (7 total), comfortable beds, and shelving to keep our ruck sacks neatly out of the way. The staff was... More

More like a hotel than a refuge. A must stop on the Tour Mont Blanc. The staff are wonderful, warm and friendly. Clean and great food for after a hike. Location is great. All you need is to hope for good weather. Even the dormitories are almost separate beds and spacious compared to the other Refugio's on the TMB.

The place looks very new inside. We stayed in a 2 person room (dorms were full when we booked). Excellent sleep quality! The food was amazing - the taste, the presentation and the quantity - you can always ask for more if you're still hungry! And their chocolate drink is awesome! Breakfast was also one of the best we had... More

THis Rifugio is purpose built and it meets the needs of hikers perfectly. We booked ahead and had a lovely twin room with a view straight out to the Grande Jorasses. The Rifugio is very well organised and the staff are very efficient friendly and very helpful. There are lots of nice extras in the building like interesting pictures photographs... More
