I love this place! In every aspect it's a no-nonsense mountain place, including very basic facilities, excellent views, good food, a weird bunch of people united for a one night stay, historic memorabilia on the wall and (indeed) moody staff and owners. About the last point there is a lot of fuss from the reviewers, but hey, these guys are... More

Had lunch here on a blustery day in August. Perfect place to stop. On the AV1 and a menu that is wide, varied and very local. Lots of game on the menu which always moves a restaurant close to my heart. Since we only came for lunch, which was great, I can't comment on the facilities for overnight accommodations, but...

This was my high spot of the AV1. Welcoming, friendly staff, excellent dinner and breakfast, and comfortable rooms. At night you can even use the indoor toilet/washbasin....luxury! But this is all about location. Stepping out in the early morning and breathing in that view. Remarkable and unforgettable! Also I love the cat...... and I don't like cats......someone tell me it's... More

Cannot recommend this Rifugio enough! Beautiful surroundings and to wake up in the mountains was a real treat and a once in a lifetime experience. The host was really friendly and accommodating, and after walking all day in the mist and rain, it was lovely to be welcomed by a blazing fire and a lovely rich Italian style hot chocolate.... More

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

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
