Accessibility in Rheinland-Pfalz is also a major issue for us. Therefore, we have already implemented some criteria for this in 2013:
A handicapped accessible room located at ground level (so that you can quickly get outside in any situation), with shower & toilet, grab bars, emergency alarm in the bathroom, dark light switches – so that you can also see sockets and light switches on a bright wall and a sliding glass door to the bathroom so that no door protrudes into the room. The double room has two separate barrier-free beds with a bed width of one meter and is wheelchair accessible (15cm).
- Disabled parking directly at the hotel entrance
- Wheelchair and walker for rent
- Reading glasses for rent at the reception and in the restaurant
- Menus with large font size, typeface, and include icons (for food intolerances)
- Food intolerance we are happy to consider
Our hotel has the certificate “Accessibility tested- barrier-free for people with walking disabilities, partially barrier-free for people with hearing disabilities, barrier-free for blind people, partially barrier-free for people with visual disabilities”.
You can download the full test report here.
Transportation trips on the subject of barrier-free
For barrier-free transportation we recommend our partner Charlys-Citycar, which has a special Mercedes Benz Vito vehicle:
In this car, wheelchair users can be transported comfortably in their own wheelchairs, and a tedious transfer to the normal seat is no longer necessary. Entry and exit is convenient via a special wheel ramp, and inside the vehicle the wheelchair user is secured by restraint systems throughout the journey. You can find more information here:
The CONTEL team is already looking forward to your visit!
