Handicap accessible hotel in Venice?

My elderly parents will be spending a night or two in Venice following a cruise. They need a moderately priced hotel ($300-400) that has a handicapped accessible room. They need a hotel that is as easy as one can get to. Dad uses a walker, and can't climb into baths, so needs one of those walk-in showers. Any ideas?

Thanks, Anne

I don't have a hotel recommend, but I would think that Venice with a walker would be very difficult.

I have no recommendations either, but there are maps and itineraries for accessible areas in Venice here:

I think you need to consider Hotel Al Codega-- great location and does have accesible rooms. I have not stayed there, but did made a note of this hotel because of its location.

Venice always brings a smile to my face-- my now husband proposed in Venice while on a gondola ride!! At the time we stayed at a small hotel at Riva degli Schiavoni, definitely not accesible. A note that you may need to consider staying at Lido island, a bit more accesible than around Piazza San Marco, for example. Hope your parents have an amazing time!

Yes, Venice with a walker will be difficult, it just happens to be where they end up after the cruise. They've been to Venice many times (pre-walker) I think they'll just spend the night (or 2) and then come home.

Any suggestions for Lido island?

Check this article for info on accessible travel to Venice.

FYI (in case you aren't aware), when reviewing the various accessible hotels, the number of stars relates to the number and type of amenities offered and not necessarily the property's luxury quotient. Here are two accessibility-equipped hotels I found for a friend a few years ago.

She ended up not going to Venice, so I can't give you a review of the facilities.

Regarding Lido, there are many hotels that are equipped for the disabled. Use the Venere.com website, sort by Lido Nord and Lido Sud. You still have to click on each property and scroll down to the amenities/facilities description, but you'll find several accessible hotels.
