Wheelchair Hotel in Central Rome
This central Rome disabled hotel has a good central location south of Campo de’ Fiori near the Tiber River. The Trastevere neighborhood is located just across the river. The entire area around this hotel and in the area to the north which contains the Campo de’ Fiori, the Piazza Navona, and the Pantheon is relatively flat but has cobblestones with 3 star smoothness which may present challenges for manual wheelchair users.
This hotel, and other central Rome wheelchair hotels, are a great option for power wheelchair users because they can roll to the major tourist sights. This hotel is only 300 meters (1/6 miles) from Campo de’ Fiori, 650 meters (1/3 mile), from Piazza Navona, and 1.0 km (0.6 miles) from the Pantheon.
All Rome hotel reservations through Sage Traveling come with:
There are 4 disabled double rooms, 1 disabled triple room, and 1 disabled single room at this hotel. There is a gelateria and a grocery store within 1 block of the hotel. The hotel has a 4 star hotel classification.
I gave this hotel a 4 star rating because it has roll-in showers and an elevator. It did not get a higher rating because there is a small lip at the entrance, cobblestones throughout the neighborhood, and no horizontal grab bars next to the toilet.
The first of the disabled hotel rooms in Rome city center that we visited had space on both sides of the bed to fit a wheelchair. The view of courtyard from the balcony of the disabled room is shown in the picture on the right.
When you enter the disabled hotel bathroom, a roll-in shower with a chair attached to the wall is on your left. There are grab bars to the right of the chair and also a stool that you can use. On the right side of the disable hotel bathroom is a toilet with a vertical grab bar on the left side of it. There is also a bidet in the toilet.
The other disabled room at this hotel was a little more spacious and is shown in the pictures below. There is space for a wheelchair on both sides of the bed, and there is a desk at the foot of the bed.
When you enter the bathroom, there is a roll-in shower on the left that has a chair attached to the wall, a grab bar next to it, and a handheld shower nozzle. Next to the shower is a toilet with a vertical grab bar next to it and a sink.
The entrance to this disabled hotel has a small lip to it but wheelchairs and mobility scooters should have no problem.
An elevator is available to bring disabled guests up to the hotel rooms. It is large enough for a wheelchair.
The hotel has an interior lighted courtyard shown in the pictures below.
The hotel bar has a smooth floor and plenty of room for wheelchair users to move around.
The breakfast room also has a smooth floor and plenty of room for wheelchair users to navigate.
The neighborhood around this hotel has small streets covered in cobblestones. Some of the cobblestones have 3 star smoothness which cause manual users to slow down, and other cobblestones have 4 star smoothness which just make the ride a little bumpy.
A small grocery store is located a 1/2 block away and is shown in the photo on the right. A gelateria is located directly across from the hotel.
If you can handle the cobblestones near this hotel, the neighborhood really is charming and is a great place to stay!
Dear John And Donna:
David and I would like to say a BIG, “Thank You,” for all of your help in regards to our trip to Italy. We had a fabulous time and we would love to use your Travel Services in the future to other cities in Europe.
Rome was our first stop and the hotel you recommended was the best of all the hotels we stayed in. The bathroom was fabulous. It looks newly remodeled and David really liked it. The included self-serve breakfast tasty and ample. The location was right in the heart of everything.
David’s scooter is larger, by length, than the average wheelchair and it made certain things a challenge for me and for others assisting us. One person, who assisted us greatly was our driver for the 3 tours in Rome. His name was Fabrizio and he could not have been better or nicer. What a wonderful man.
We managed through all of the situations that came our way and overall had a great vacation and a successful trip. Thank you both again for all your assistance and we wish the best of luck to both of you in the future.
Kind Regards – Catherine and David (Sage Traveling clients who stayed at this hotel)
