Refugio Sennes is a quiet basic refugio. Very clean. Nice owner & staff. I think all rooms have shared bathrooms. The food was very good. We had a nice cut of beef, potatoes, cole slaw. Ice cream with warm raspberries was the dessert. All in...More

We stayed here on the first stop of our AV1 trek, and it was lovely. Cows clanging their bells in a beautiful mountain valley. Food was great, and the room we stayed in was clean and commodious. Perfect!

First stop for our dolomiten hohenweg - really good. A very noisy dutch group could not spoil our fun, although being dutch we were somewhat embarrasses by/for our country. But that is something which the excellent staff could not help... Great visit.

Hi, I honestly don't recall. There are, frankly, not a lot of dietary options hiking the AV1, but all the rifugio guardians are extremely kind and helpful, and I would suggest that you email them directly and ask. There is... More
