Venice Disabled Hotel with Adjoining Rooms
This 4 star hotel is one of the easiest for disabled guests to reach from the airport. The wheelchair accessible Alilaguna boats travel from Venice’s Marco Polo airport to the Zaterre dock. There are no bridges between the Zaterre dock and this hotel.
This hotel is an excellent Venice disabled hotel for families because both of the disabled rooms connect to other rooms. The first disabled room is a junior suite that adjoins to a non-handicapped double room. The second Venice disabled adjoining hotel room is a deluxe room that connects to a non-handicapped junior suite / triple room.

The hotel has the most modern feel of all the Venice accessible hotels that we visited. It has art exhibits in the halls which it rotates monthly.
We gave this hotel a 4 Star Sage Accessibility Rating because it has step-free access and a roll-in shower. It did not get a 5 star rating because it requires notification of hotel staff to operate the wheelchair lift at the entrance.
This first room we evaluated at this hotel was the junior suite shown in the pictures below. It has more space than the normal room and has space for wheelchair users to fit on both sides of the bed.
The bathroom of the first disabled room that we visited is shown below. When you enter the bathroom a sink with room for a wheelchair user to fit their knees underneath is on your left. Just to the right of the sink is a roll-in shower. On the far side of the roll-in shower is a toilet, a bathtub, and a bidet.
The roll-in shower has a very small (~1cm) lip so the water doesn’t spread across the bathroom floor. The toilet has a grab bar on the near side. On the far side, disabled guests can push off of the waist-high wall next to the bathtub.
The second disabled hotel room that we visited has a slightly different arrangement. Rather than have the roll-in shower next to the sink, the bidet is next to the sink. The roll-in shower is located across from the toilet providing you with a little more room.
The main entrance to the hotel has 3 steps that are shown in the pictures below.
A side entrance is located about 20 meters to the right of the main entrance. There is a 5 cm lip followed by a wheelchair lift to get up the few steps to reach the lobby. A staff member will need to activate it for you, so you’ll need for a companion to let the staff know that you need to enter the hotel.
The two pictures below show the hotel restaurant. The photo on the left shows the entrance from the street which has 7 steps to get down into the restaurant. You can also enter the restaurant from the hotel lobby which also requires going down 7 steps. The hotel staff informed us that you disabled guests can have breakfast at one of the two tables on the street in front of the hotel.
The elevator to reach the upper floors where the disabled rooms are located is wide enough for wheelchairs and shown in the photo on the left. The photo on the right shows part of the lobby.
This neighborhood has several wheelchair accessible restaurants including the restaurants on the Zaterre promenade that overlook the Venice lagoon. Disabled travelers will not need to go over any bridges to get from the hotel to the restaurants.
