We stayed at refugio Alpetto di Torno for a night on our way from como to bellagio. We (two kids, 6 and 3 years, and their parents) enjoyed our stay very much. The rooms are very nice and clean, the owner and the staff are great, and the food too. Many thanks to the team! Jette & Sascha with Marten...

Agree with other comments. We had a very enjoyable meal before continuing our walk up to San Primo. The rifugio is beautifully restored and in a lovely situation. We intend to walk from Como to Bellagio one day and will stay here as our midway overnight stop and we will return for another meal next time we are in Como....

We stayed at the Rifugio during our trek from Como to Bellagio. Danielle, the owner, is a wonderful host with a big heart and a calm smile. The place was clean, warm and tidy. The shower was clean with worm water. And we also had a great sleep. We absolutely recommend to spend the night here!

Daniele and Ugo were very hospitable hosts, and the evening meal in particular was fantastic, with nice wine available for tired hikers! As said by others the location...

This place gets our best recommendation! - Location is amazing, in between the mountains and close to lake Como. - Owners are very, very friendly. We arrived late in Malpensa, and got lost on the way, so we didn't arrive at the refuge before 2am... still, we were greeted with a big smile by one of the owners that had...

Rifugio Alpetto was a good surprise: extremely clean, nice rooms (some dormitories) good service for a very good price, 25€/pers. We had a hard time to find the place: it is not in the Sormano village but 7 km after you exit the village and the last 2 km are a Mountain road difficult to access at night (I would...
