Adapted Facilities At Hotel Paral.lel Barcelona for Wheelchair, Tourists with a disability or Limited Mobility

Page Content

Hotel Paral.lel Barcelona
I visited Hotel Paral.lel with the aim to obtain specific details on the facilities they offer for the traveller with a disability and limited mobility. You will find on this page the exact measurements that affect a wheelchair user when visiting this hotel including dimensions for the lift, bathroom utilities, washbasin and toilet dimensions. In addition any other adapted facilities the hotel offers for the traveller with a disability are given.

Hotel Paral.lel Barcelona is a two star hotel. In all of our searches it was the only one that we found with reasonable adapted facilities. It has two rooms that they claim are adapted, however, if booking, ensure to ask for room 115 as this is the only one that s truly adapted. Unfortunately, no bathroom has a shower.

For a more general review of the hotel see our hotel review.

If you are booking Hotel Paral.lel ensure that you request room 115 - this is the only truly adapted room in the hotel. Unfortunately, there is no shower in the bathroom. If this is something that you can work with, then Hotel Paral.lel may be an affordable option for you in a city where most adapted hotels are four star superiors.
