Handicapped Accessible Hotel on Venice Grand Canal

This hotel is located in one of our favorite neighborhoods in Venice. The neighborhood has wide streets and many restaurants with outdoor accessible seating. It is located about halfway down the Grand Canal and isn’t overrun with tourists. The hotel is located in the very back of the neighborhood away from all pedestrian traffic. The photo on the right was taken from the hotel. If you’re looking to stay in an authentic (non-tourist) Venice neighborhood, this hotel is an excellent choice.

This handicapped accessible hotel room on Venice’s Grand Canal has a step-free entrance and a large bed with space for a wheelchair on both sides. The bathroom door is wide enough for a wheelchair, and there is both a bathtub and a roll-in shower inside. The roll-in shower has a seat, and the toilet has a grab bar located on the left of it. Although this hotel has a 3 star classification, we saw very little difference between it and some of the 4 star Venice accessible hotels that we visited.

We gave this Venice Grand Canal disabled hotel a 4 Star Sage Accessibility Rating because it has a step-free entrance and a roll-in shower. It did not get a 5 star rating because the toilet does not have grab bars on both sides of it and the roll-in shower is smaller than other roll-in showers.

The entrance to the hotel is through the hall shown in the picture on the left. The entrance to the lobby and the restaurant is step-free and is shown in the picture in the lower right. The disabled room is accessed through a separate door in the back left of the top two pictures.



The restaurant where breakfast is served has plenty of room for a wheelchair user to move between the tables:


The accessible room is located just across the hallway. The flat entrance is shown in the lower left. Both of the doors can be opened which provides plenty of room for a wheelchair. The picture on the right is taken from the entrance to the handicapped room. There is a desk on the immediate right and the bed is located in the back right. The bathroom is on the left, and there is a chandelier above the bed.


The pictures below show that the bed has enough space for a wheelchair on both sides of it.


The picture on the right was taken from the entrance to the bathroom. A roll-in shower is located on the immediate left. The toilet and a bidet are located just past it on the left. The picture on the right shows the sink which is high enough for a wheelchair user’s knees to fit. The bathtub has a glass window to keep water from splashing on the floor.


The roll-in shower has a seat attached to the wall. The glass doors in the front and on the right will swing wide so you can position a wheelchair near the chair.  A grab bar is located next the toilet which can assist with transfers from a wheelchair to the toilet.


There are several restaurants in this neighborhood that have accessible outdoor seating. Wheelchair users will not need to cross any bridges to get to these restaurants from their hotel. There is also a step-free path from the hotel to one of the Grand Canal vaparetto stops.
