Accommodation for customers with a physical disability at Sokos Hotels
Sokos Hotels also include rooms designed for the physically impaired where special emphasis is placed on accessibility and the customer's mobility within the room with the help of accessories, such as a wheelchair. The number of special rooms in each hotel can be found on the www.sokoshotels.fi website.
"What was so special about the room for the disabled at Original Sokos Hotel Vaakuna in Kouvola? Everything. First, the entrance to the room that you reach first, with the entrance to the bathroom as well. A wonderful dressing table and a large mirror, which could be reached very well also with a wheelchair. The bathroom had enough room to make turning around comfortable. A regular shower and a shower chair; a good basin. The toilet was high and had an extra seat on top for more height, which could be easily removed if necessary.
It is a very good thing that the new website of Sokos Hotels also specifies the number of rooms for the disabled in each hotel with the hotel presentations."
