Bonatti is in a fabulous location overlooking the mountains. You can see all the way back to Col de la Seigne! Very modern, nice clean rooms and bathrooms. We had a spacious bedroom with 2 twin pine beds and nice linens. Service was very good. Dinner was excellent and very filling. Great stay!

We visited Refugio Bonatti in July, it's a decent hike out of Courmayeur and we were lucky to have great weather with amazing views! Check in was quick.. We had a private 2 bedroom and it was ready at 4pm. We had lunch and drinks. Very good food, pricing was good too. Showers- Everyone was always talking about the showers.... More

Stayed here on an excellent TMB day. View is sensational. Food excellent - plenty of hearty italian food. communal tables. Breakfast was reasonable for a refuge. Example of a top refuge, very very well run. They give you these really excellent refuge slippers. Most places have battered crocs, but these added just a touch of luxury! Dorms better than most...

The refuge is new and it looks very nice, everything is modern and very well integrated in the scenery. It would be nice that they have had more sockets so we can charge our phones and to hire a more inventive cook but that didn't ruined our experience there and we recomend this place for a stop on the tour...

If you're used to refuges or hostels this place is ok. The dining area and general sleeping area was clean. The communal bathrooms were ok- no hot water though. Limited choice of accommodation on this stretch of the TMB- views are beautiful but if you want to sleep this place is not for you. Floorboards creak down the entire floor... More

very nice place to stay, you can access the Rifugio even if you're not a keen hiker, it would take 1 and a half hour from the parking lot. the staff is kind, the food is good. everything is incredibly clean and cosy!

I have stayed 9 different refuges in TMB in the summer of 2015. Bonatti is the best one in all senses, location with the spectacular view out of the window, ample food and clean room. Cool beer was tasty and refreshing after a hard day of hike! Price of beer, coffee etc is very reasonable considering the remoteness of the... More

I actually liked the place. It is very new, clean, pretty, great views. Food is pretty good if a little less than generous in the portions. I gave it a 3 because of the very regimented view the management has towards how its guests should act. Most (all, actually) of the refugios on the tour du mont blanc route show... More

a great halt after a long walk day, but definitely too big and too crowded. if you want calm and serenity it's not really the place. yet private room are great and worth the extra $. food is good but is hut food... nothing to rave about .. yet plenty of it. the views on the Mont Blanc Massif are...

Rifugio Bonatti is set in a wonderful location looking over to the mountains and glaciers. We had an enjoyable stay here and it is a very well set out refuge, one of the best on the TMB I would say. The refuge was fully booked for the night we stayed and whilst we had booked weeks in advance all of... More
