Everyone is welcome at Scandic! We understand that every disability is different. The same is also true of our hotels, and we have implemented smart design in our rooms available for people who have a disability. When you choose to stay with Scandic, you should enjoy the same Scandic standards for accessibility. That's why we have implemented and are continuously improving a common accessibility programme that all our hotels use.
The purpose of this guidance is to advise those who own, manage or care for buildings and places of architectural heritage significance on the options available to them to improve accessibility. It also provides guidance and information for anyone with an interest or involvement in issues surrounding the accessibility of historic buildings and places.
