“overnight in summer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

During a 4 day hiking trip we stayed (5 p) for 1 night at the Rifugio Vieux Crest. The Rifugio is beautifull and cosy. The evening diner was great. We had one big room and had our own bathroom (shower). Rooms are very clean. The location is great also.
If you plan to stay at this rifugio, don't hesitate, just do it.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Initially disappointed not to be able to stay at Belvedere (Giacomo's first place), we agreed to try Vieux Crest. Same pricing which is good.

We (3 couples from Denmark) had the best week enjoying the plentiful food, great wine and great bar room for beers and games in the evening. Great staff led by Stefano. New in the job, but MAN can he service. Asked about the winecard, but a few wines were missing. Next day he brought the winecard from Belvedere, and took down my selection by snow scooter the next day...beat that for service! On top of that, Stefano is a smart and friendly guy always looking to perfect your stay (snow scooter to the lift, making Grolla, avoiding garlic in the food).

Only downside I can mention is the ski-exit from the place that is a little difficult if the snow is low or you are less than a good skier. Rooms are simple, but good size and very clean.

But go there. Take it for the location, the staff, the food or the ambiance. But GO!
Suitable for couples or large groups alike.
