    wheelchair accessible hotel/motel in Amsterdam?

    hi yall, I'm heading to Amsterdam for 10 days. I've had a really hard time, more-so than usual, finding accessible hotels. Even airbnb, if a place advertises as "accessible" they have "only one step" and very small bathrooms.

    I'm frustrated. I need a private room and a private bathroom. The room can be tiny, just a bed, that's fine; but I need a sizeable bathroom. I prefer they have a shower-chair, but if they don't, I can unpack my shower chair.

    does anyone live in Amsterdam or anyone been there and have any experience with this stuff? I'd really appreciate some recommendations!!!

    thanks for reading

      There are quite a few hotel with roll in showers, Amsterdam is quite a large city so it depends where you want to stay and your budget:

      5* Mariott Hotel and Hotel Waldorf Astoria have accessible bathrooms with roll in shower.

      4* DoubleTree by Hilton has 25 accessible double rooms containing grab rails, wheel in showers, shower chairs, wider doors etc. This is right by Amsterdam Centraal Station with a great Skybar.

      4* Movenpick Hotel Amsterdam City Centre has a room with accessible bathroom with roll in shower.

      3* Eden Hotel Amsterdam - Hampshire Eden / 4* Hampshire Hotel - Rembrandt Square, Amsterdam (two hotels sharing the same resturant/bar) located just metres from the Rembrandtsquare. Both hotels have an accessible room with wheel/roll in shower.

      3* Ibis Amsterdam Centre Hotel has 3 rooms with wheel in showers.

      For something cheaper (50 USD per night compared to 200 USD at the Doubletree) try the New West Inn on the western side of Amsterdam, it's about 15mins from the airport and has a nearby tram stop / bus stop with a direct link to the city. They have two accessible rooms (must be booked via phone/email) & I've attched a couple of pictures of the bathroom.

      Don't be affraid to give them a call/skype - everyone speak Engrish

        I stayed here: 2 summers ago. It's ground floor (with a small lip down when coming in the door) and in a great location. The owner is awesome and extremely accommodating. Not overly roomy and not a ton of space in the bathroom (which might be the dealbreaker for you), but for all intents and purposes has a roll-in shower... I rented a shower bench while I was there. Compared to comparably priced hotels at the time with comparable location, I'm super-psyched that's what we decided on.

        I *should* have some pics somewhere. I'll try to dig them up in the next couple days.

          Diaspora, it will be cold but if the canals are not frozen over yet one line has a roll on Canal boat. I think it was Blue cruises. Nice way to see the site from below and all the decorated houseboats.
