5 Star Rome Handicapped Hotel

This hotel is one of the most centrally-located hotels that we recommend. It is located in the Pantheon neighborhood, in between the Piazza Navona and the Vatican.

Most of the streets in this neighborhood have cobblestones which could present challenges to manual wheelchair users. Manual wheelchair users may prefer other handicapped hotels in Rome.

Electric wheelchair users and mobility scooter users should not have a problem with the cobblestones and would benefit from being within walking/rolling distance of many sights including the Vatican (0.5 miles, 800 meters), Pantheon (0.6 miles, 1 km), Trevi Fountain (1 mile, 1.8 km), Spanish Steps (1.2 miles, 2 km), and Capitoline Museums (1 mile, 1.8 km). All of these sights are visited by the accessible guided tours in Rome.


All Rome hotel reservations through Sage Traveling come with:

  1. Guaranteed Accessible hotel accommodation
  2. The 100+ page Sage Accessibility Guide for Rome
  3. Emergency Accessibility Assistance for things that can go wrong

This luxury hotel has a spa/wellness centre, Turkish bath, gym, and sauna. While there are other 5 Star Rome Handicapped Hotels, this is the most centrally-located one.

I gave this hotel a 4 star accessibility rating because although it has an accessible entrance, and elevator, and a roll-in shower; it does not have grab bars next to the seat in the shower and the neighborhood has cobblestones which could be challenging for manual wheelchair users.

The 5 Star handicapped hotel room is a deluxe room. It has two bathrooms, one of which is handicapped accessible. In the picture on the left, the door to the normal bathroom is located near the bed stand on the left. The handicapped bathroom is located through the door in the left foreground of the picture. The image on the right shows the desk on the right side of the room.

The handicapped bathroom has a grab bar on the left side of the toilet. The roll-in shower has a bench attached to the wall and a handheld shower. There are no grab bars next to the shower bench.

There is a second bathroom in the disabled room which has a stand-up shower with a step to get into it.

The standard room is smaller than the deluxe room and is not really wheelchair accessible. It may work for some disabled guests that can walk into the shower.

There is a small step at the entrance with a motion-activated door. The elevator door is a little narrow (27.3 inches wide) but my wheelchair was able to fit through it.

Pictures of the lobby are shown below.

An outdoor café with wheelchair accessible seating is located nearby the hotel and is shown in the pictures below. The nearby Piazza Navona and Campo de Fiori have numerous Rome accessible restaurants also.
