Rafael Diagonal Mar Hotel
I visited Rafael Diagonal Port Hotel 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.

The Rafael Diagonal Port Hotel Barcelona is located close to the beach and has a sunny atmosphere. One of its most winning features is that it has a level access shower in the bathroom. With a total of 5 adapted rooms in a relatively small hotel, this could prove to be an attractive option for limited mobility and travellers with a disability.

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