Accessible Paris Hotels

Finding accessible Paris hotels has historically been a challenge because accessibility descriptions on hotel websites are often vague and self-promoting. Even worse, some are just flat out wrong. Many times a hotel with a step at the entrance or an elevator too narrow for a wheelchair will be described as an accessible Paris hotel.

With Sage Traveling, disabled travelers won’t have to worry about incorrect accessibility descriptions. Our disabled travel researchers have personally visited and reviewed numerous hotels in Paris and can vouch for their accessibility. Pictures show you exactly what the disabled hotel rooms look like.

All Paris hotel reservations through Sage Traveling come with:

  1. Pre-trip accessible travel consultation with one of our Paris specialists
  2. Emergency assistance if something goes wrong during your trip
  3. John Sage’s 100+ page Sage Accessibility Guide to Paris

Examples of wheelchair accessible Paris hotels are found below. Each of these accessible hotel rooms contain a roll-in shower or a bathtub with grab bars. They are centered in 4 areas of Paris that work well for disabled travelers: the Left Bank, near the Louvre, near Gare St. Lazare, and near the Eiffel Tower.

Paris Accessible Hotels near Louvre Museum

The neighborhood surrounding the Louvre Museum is upscale and has magnificent Neo-classic architechture. It has flat streets without cobblestones and the best accessible transportation options of any of the Paris neighborhoods. The accessible Paris hotel rooms that I reviewed in this neighborhood are all located in the 1st Arrondisement. Read more about this neighborhood at the Accessible hotels near Paris Louvre Museum page.

These large handicapped rooms face the inner courtyard and consequently are very quiet. Both rooms have roll-in showers with a fold out chair attached to the wall. The grab bars next to the roll-in shower and the toilet are not ideally placed. Like many of the wheelchair accessible hotels near Paris Louvre Museum described on Sage Traveling, there is a restaurant in the hotel and several nearby sidewalk cafés.

Out of all the hotels in Paris with disabled access, these are the only ones we found that have private courtyards for each of the disabled rooms. The roll-in showers in these rooms work well for wheelchair users, however you should note that there are no grab bars in the shower or near the toilet.

Disabled Hotels in Paris Left Bank

The Left Bank has a village-like charm too it that you can’t find elsewhere in Paris.  Curving pedestrian streets are lined with sidewalk cafés and provide shelter from the metropolitan city around it. Read more about this neighborhood at the Disabled hotels in Paris Left Bank page.
