Wheelchair Accessible Hotels in Seoul

Although there is no Korean law which equates to the Americans with Disabilities Act, the majority of Western branded hotels use the ADA as a guide in the construction of their international properties. Foreign hotels carrying a Western brand are more likely to be wheelchair accessible and offer rooms with roll-in showers, grab bars and other accessibility features.

When deciding on a particular hotel, it is important to seek out information on access before showing up at the hotel. Ask about everything—door width, thresholds, shower/tub set-up, bed height, grab bars, shower chairs—to avoid a surprise when you arrive.

I’ve taken the time to compile the following list of hotels in Seoul which offer handicap accessible rooms (some with roll-in showers). This is not a complete list of accessible hotels in the city. Hotels listed in bold are properties I have stayed at myself – click the hotel name for my detailed review (with pictures).
