I read all the comments and was skeptical to stay there, but I decided to try - everything was just perfect: phone information, check in, dinner, rooms.. House is in a very good condition and clean. Very warm rooms, I was too warm wrapped up in blankets expecting wind coming through the walls, on this hight and exposure. Toilet in... More

You have to remember this Rifugio is at 2600m on top of a rock basically so yes, the facilities are minimal. They have limited water, so no showers. They get a lot of daytime visitors trekking up for the view so yes, they have one outdoor squat loo during the day, but after the last visitors have gone and only... More

First of all, if you are a tourist looking for a bed rather than a walker who appreciates good huts, you may just want to give this Rifugio a miss even though it sits atop a peak with perhaps the best view along the AV!. Sure, it has outside toilets and washroom (clean), no shower (there is a lack of... More

Hi all, we have done the Alta Via One, just few days ago(4th Sept 2012). It was a magnificent experience, meeting people from all over the world. We stayed in about 7 Refugio’s, and most of them are very rustic and we can understand that, water it is a problem all over Dolomites. BUT none of the places were like... More

Recently spent 9 days hiking Alta Via 1 thru the dolomites and Nuvolau was the worst of the Refugios we stayed in. do your self a favor - come up for a drink and the view but stay somewhere else for the night. Rifugio Averau is right below it - 20 minute walk. it was the most rustic (outdoor hole... More

I did not even stay at this Refugio but does not look good. I called today for information on rates and the lady that answered the phone was rude and not helpful at all. When I ask for the rate she asked me;"what for?" What? Why would I want the rate if not for making a reservation??? Then she refused... More

This is very much a hiker's / climber's hut (not suitable if you are looking for more than basic comfort and/or extra friendly service). The near 360 degree views of the surrounding peaks are magnificent. Sunrise and sunset are worth watching. We got here after hiking through some snow even in June and we returned to Passo Falzarego using the... More

The rooms were clean and the food was great, but we were not pleased with the cold treatment we received from our hostess and her staff. When we arrived from our hike, we waited in the front doorway for someone to tell us where we could drop or packs and leave our shoes. People just kept walking past us, and... More
