I have reviewed a number of Barcelona hotels specifically regarded accessibility for wheelchair, tourists with a disability and limited mobility. For an overview of our findings and for links to the other reviews see: A Guide to Hotels with People With A Disability, Wheelchair and Limited Mobility Accessibility in Barcelona.

All in all, Gran Torre Catalunya is an expensive yet attractive option for travellers with a disability. With eight adapted rooms you are likely to find that there is one available. It also has an impressive bathroom with lots of space and a level access shower.
