Accessible hotels in Singapore
When booking a staycation, we usually look at how IG-worthy its facilities are from the swimming pool to the sweeping views. But those with disabilities or mobility impairment have to also consider how accessible some of these hotels are. Small design details like grab bars in the shower or if a wheelchair can fit through a door can make or break a holiday.
These seven hotels in Singapore have accessible amenities that are not only wheelchair-friendly. Some have also implemented little details like braille and text-to-speech devices to accommodate guests with visual or hearing impairments too.
