In today’s dynamic hotel industry, inclusion is an issue that cannot be ignored. One of the areas where inclusion and accessibility play a crucial role is accessibility. When people think of accessibility in hotels, they often first think of elevators or barrier-free rooms. But have you ever thought about the accessibility of your hotel bike room?
Is accessibility in the hotel and bikeroom necessary at all?
The answer is clearly, YES! Accessibility in the hotel means that all your guests, regardless of their physical or sensory abilities, can fully use your facilities and services. This principle also extends to less obvious areas such as hotel bike rooms, which are often overlooked.
With bicycle tourism booming, it’s critical that you design your bike rooms to be accessible to all guests. A barrier-free bike room is not only a sign of inclusion and hospitality, but also a way to stand out from the competition and attract new target groups.
Your bike room should meet these basic criteria to be considered barrier-free
To ensure barrier-free access to the bicycle room, several aspects must be considered:
Ensure that access to the room itself is free of steps or other obstructions. Ramps or elevators can help here.
Door width should be sufficient to accommodate wider or special bikes, such as tricycles or tandems.
In the bike room itself should be enough space to easily maneuver and safely park bicycles.
Good lighting is important to minimize tripping hazards and ensure safe use.
Clear and visible signage will help your guests easily locate and use the space.
Also think about mounts in different heights or special mounts for e-bikes such as our

The advantages of accessibility in the hotel
The design of a barrier-free bicycle room brings numerous advantages:
Wider target group
Accessibility is not only relevant for people with disabilities. Elderly people, people with temporary impairments and parents with strollers also benefit from accessibility in the hotel.
Positive brand perception
Hotels that focus on accessibility are perceived as modern, open-minded and socially responsible, which improves brand image and ultimately attracts more guests.
With these considerations become barrier-free
Before you start remodeling your hotel and biker room, there are some considerations you should make.
Before you make any changes, try to find out what your guests need. Feedback forms or direct conversations can be helpful here.
Your staff should be trained to help guests with different needs, and they should be knowledgeable about the various aspects of accessibility.
