Disabled hotel room in Paris Left Bank
Disabled Hotel Room in Paris Left Bank – This 28-room boutique hotel has a single disabled room with a roll-in shower on the ground floor. There are grab bars by the shower and the toilet, and there is a small chair that can be used in the roll-in shower. The disabled hotel room in Paris Left Bank has a loft with a couch-bed that would make it a great option for traveling with an attendant or kids. Some other accessible hotel rooms in Paris that I visited had couch beds, but this one would is the best that I found because the loft provides a degree of separation.

The room is reached by going through a small courtyard with a garden. There is a single step at the entrance to the hotel, but an entrance with a ramp is 5 meters to the left. The reception desk is on the other side of the door, so you just need to knock on the door for a staff member to open it. They told me that when they have a disabled guest, they will remove the curtain on that door so that they can see when they need to open it.
The hotel staff were very receptive to my questions about accessibility and even asked me for suggestions to improve the accessibility of the bathroom. Many hotels view my accessibility questions as an inconvenience. Knowing that the staff is concerned about accessibility is very comforting, and I would highly recommend this hotel to disabled travelers.
This disabled hotel room in Paris Left Bank is located on a quiet, small street that is 100 meters from the beautiful Luxembourg Gardens. The Gardens are another reason that this is a great accessible hotel if you are traveling with kids. The neighborhood is flat without cobblestones. Although there are restaurants closer by, this hotel is only 800 meters from a great street we found with numerous outdoor cafés called Gregoire de Tours. The accessible bus line number 58 stops within a block of the hotel and stops on Pont Neuf which is halfway between the Louvre Museum and the Notre Dame Cathedral. The hotel has 28 rooms and 4 star hotel amenities.
