The vast majority of huts, rifugios and chamannas that I have visited seem to have better food and more reasonable pricing. The view is great and it is a short walk (1.5 km)from the mid station at Corvatsch gondola/tram. A good starting point to continue...More

We only stopped here for a drink but still felt it worth a review. What an unbelievable watering hole with the most incredible views you could imagine. Even though we only stopped there for a short period of time we wont forget it. So worth...More

There's no other words except "Excellent", but somehow I couldn't managed to see more. If the room charges can be lower, I might have the intention to go back.
