The Rafael Diagonal Port 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 disabled travellers.

Rafael Diagonal Port is an attractive option on many fronts. It is a three star hotel, making it more affordable than most wheelchair accessible hotels in Barcelona. It also contains a total of five adapted rooms - generous for a hotel of its size. It also has level access showers in the bathroom. Located with views of Barcelona's wheelchair accessible beach, it is definitely worth checking out.
