Welcome sight in the snow!
Sep 2019
OK, we came to this place under difficult and challenging circumstances (last saturday and sunday were very snowy) and that will have factored in this review.
The place isn't that showy, lighting is strip lighting/LED, the breakfast (to be honest) wasn't that great. Room was good, other facilities were also good.
But, the managers were great. We arrived very tired and stressed after finding the route along Piz Boe ridge to be at about our limit in the heavy snow with near zero visibility. We know what we're doing, but that day was near our limit. There were virtually no other walkers on the mountain that weekend....in fact we met the 4 other walkers on the way down to the cable car the next morning.
Ludovico quickly sorted out our gear (dried our boots in 2 hours, totally dry), got our waterproofs etc. dry in the drying room and discussed our plans with us, giving us excellent advice. He was obviously concerned about the weather to a great degree - it even took him by surprise. His advice turned out to be excellent, and we left the place the next morning taking a safe route to the Funovia (again, very poor weather conditions, 100m visibility max. 30cm snow.)

Spectacular views
Jul 2015 • Family
After a nice hike from Sass (or Pass) Pordoi, you are rewarded with one of the most spectacular views of the dolomittes, but be aware of some steep and airy sections wich may trigger vertigo if you suffer from that. If you need to use bathroom facilities, the Alpine toilet is an interesting experience...

Best Rifugio we stayed on the AV2!!
Jul 2015 • Couples
A FANTASTIC family-run rifugio. The AV2 is mostly full of great rifugios, but we thought this was the best. We arrived during a hale storm and were briskly looked after once we arrived by drying our gear and whisking us into our rooms. Later we enjoyed some great meals and the company of the other hikers and the proprietors. The father is an international mountain guide and ski instructor. He and his family radiated a warm welcome. They had some great suggestions about nearby sunset and morning hikes.
I highly recommend hiking Piz Boe in the morning before the first Gondola arrives and the mass of day hikers arrive. The view of the Dolomites and Marmolada are awesome.
This is a truly authentic mountain experience Rifugio. Highly recommended.
