Paris handicapped rooms near Louvre Museum

Paris Handicapped Rooms near Louvre Museum – Of all the hotels we visited, this hotel has some of the largest Paris handicapped rooms near Louvre Museum. Both of the accessible rooms are on the ground floor and face the inner courtyard. They both have a king bed and a roll-in shower with a fold out chair attached to the wall. The grab bars next to the toilet and in the roll-in shower and not ideally placed (see pictures below).

The hotel has 42 rooms and a 4 star hotel classification. A small 1 ft long ramp and a motion activated door are at the entrance to the building. There is a single disabled parking spot in front of the hotel or the valet can park your car for you. The elevator to the Chatelet Metro/RER station which goes to the airport is only 400 m away from the entrance to the hotel.

This hotel is on a quiet street half a block off of the Rue de Rivoli which has numerous accessible bus lines. The Pyramid entrance to the Louvre is 700 meters away, and the Notre Dame Cathedral is 1.25 km away. The neighborhood has flat streets and sidewalks without cobblestones. Café Bailleul is a half block away with sidewalk seating and a step-free entrance. If you do not want to venture out for dinner, the hotel has a gourmet restaurant located on the ground floor.

I gave this hotel a 4 Star Sage Accessibility Rating instead of a 5 star rating because of the poorly positioned grab bars in the bathroom. For many wheelchair users and disabled travelers this will not be an issue.
