Located south of Arno River and away from many of the tourist crowds, this Florence wheelchair accessible apartment is within easy walking/rolling distance to the tourist attractions among narrow, old Florence streets with diagonally-oriented paving stones. This accessible apartment is usually cheaper than other Florence accessible family accommodations and boasts more space than some other Florence accessible roll-in shower hotels. You will want to reserve months in advance, as this hotel is very popular and gets booked fast!

Accessibility Details

I gave this hotel a 4 Star Sage Accessibility Rating because it has ramped access and a roll-in shower.  It did not get a higher rating because the seat in the roll-in shower is small.

This Florence accessible wheelchair apartment has a double bed and pull-out couch, making it a great option for families or groups traveling. The open floor plan and smooth tile floors make maneuvering a wheelchair around the room easy.
