Stayed there during a six day hike in Monte Rosa before ascending up to Magherita Hut. Even though it is easily reachable by cable car and therefore has many tourist that are not familiar with high altitudes it has kept its charme.

Beautiful view and friendly people in the hut. The hut is a Mountain hut has it's own quality. Back to basics and informel. It's not a 4-star hotel it's a hut. The food is excellent compared to other huts in the area.

Fantastic location, outstanding food, really nice, friendly and competent staff! We had a three course menu which would have outdone any Italian restaurant in Germany! The coffee is awesome as well. Best mountain hut to which I have ever been!

The easiest way to get there is to use a cable railway from Alagna. The place doesn’t offer very comfortable accommodation, however, as... More
