Scandic has taken on the challenge to include accessibility in everything they do. When designing rooms for persons with disabilities, Scandic ensure that they are as well-designed as any other room, with practical solutions that go almost unnoticed, except by those who really need them.
In consultation with organisations for people with special accessibility needs, a checklist of 110 points was developed. The Scandic's accessibility standard encompasses everything offered by the hotel and is an integral consideration for all products and services at the hotel. Scandic also offer online training for its staff.
