Disabled Hotel Rooms in Bruges
Disabled Hotel Rooms in Bruges – Wheelchair users will appreciate the 2 disabled rooms with roll-in showers at this hotel. The hotel is located midway between the Bruges train station and the the city centre on a street where you are more likely to see horse-drawn carriages than cars. Although it’s not as close to the bell tower as other disabled hotels in Bruges, that also means that there are less tourists in this part of town.

The Memling museum and the Begijnhof are each two blocks away from the hotel. The Markt Square is a little further away but still within walking distance.
There are steps at the main entrance of the hotel, but a staff member can automically open a door near the parking garage to give you step-free access into the building. The disabled rooms are accessed by an elevator that is large enough for a wheelchair. A different elevator brings you to the basement where breakfast is served in a magnificent cellar.
