This was the second rifugio we’d spend overnight along our Alta Via 1 trek in mid-July. We had just finished lunch at Lavarella nearby, but we were ready to take off our hiking boots since we had hiked from Rifugio Sennes that morning. At Fanes, an automatic glass door slid aside to welcome us into the dark lobby. Immediately I...

As the location is wonderful I would have liked to title the review differently but alas the great location did not make up for the lack of customer service. After hiking for the day was looking forward to a cool drink on the deck but after waiting for a server and placing the order it never came. Alas staff seemed...

We stayed 3 nights, after walked hard from Rif Lagazuoi (due to wrong routing) to Rif Fanes (pronounced as Fan nai s). Our room (Rm 25) is super comfortable. En suite and with a balcony. There is a TV in the room in this remote area! The room is warm during the night. 3 courses provided for dinner. 1st course...

The folks who run this hotel have no concept of hospitality. There was one lovely (brunette, middle-aged) woman, but she was the exception. Most staff I encountered were just uninterested in serving you. They rushed around serving the day visitors who drove up to eat and drink and rebuffed (quite rudely) all requests by registered guests. I was told this...

We were told the food in Alta Via 1 refugios in Italy was great. But not so at Fanes. We were there one night with large groups of loud hikers. They served some kind of breaded fried cheese, slimey red peppers, & overcooked potatoes. The first course, risotto, was the only thing that insured I wasn't going to bed with...

This hut's interior is very well designed, personalized with collectables from oversea travels. On the outset, it really feels as if the hut was a 5* hotel. There are lots of amenities in this hut - including a quiet common room to play instruments, read, or to sit by the fireplace. The patio of the hut had a cover, which...

Rooms with private bathroom available, but also dormitories, very qualitative conditions. Food typical of Tyrol area, very good for my taste. Rooms very clean. For us it was the second stop on alta via 1. Internet is with pay, rather expensive and for us it didn't work. No GSM signal.

We stayed here as part of our hut to hut hike during our honeymoon in the Dolomites! The staff was very friendly and the food was delicious! We were able to get a private room which was nice! There is wifi but you have to pay for it...2 euros for 30 minutes!

This was out first rifugio on AV1 and is a great option for walkers. The food was typical Tyrolean and quite good - meat and vegetables essentially, the beer is cold and good as you would expect in this part of the world. Private room is a great way to relax after a reasonably tough walk from Lago de Braies....

Fanes was the our second night stop whilst walking Alta Via 1. Like most of the rifugios in the Dolomites you can access this hut by car. This makes it popular and busy in the summer but also means it is lively, with cool people to talk to and lots of stuff going on. The beer and strudel are excellent,...
