Fully Adapted Apartments
This review is especially helpful for those who have or use the following: Powerchair
Living so long with MND I used one walking stick then two, two crutches a 4 wheel walker a scooter a manual wheelchair and now a power chair. I have had a good bit of experience when it comes to accommodation but MICs is very good for anyone in these situations. If you’re a hoist user like me you do need to ask for a shower commode chair because the hoist wouldn't get you on the toilet and the fixed shower chair. If you are tall and can still transfer the shower chair on the wall could be too low as it's a fixed height. Because I'm big and my wife is small she might have struggled with the fall on the floor to the drain that takes the water from the shower if I didn't have use in my arms and hands. Overall we would not look at any other place to stay in Barcelona after staying at MICs, and we will definitely be going back.
Transport & Parking
No parking needed as we arrived on public transport. The metro lift is at the bottom on the entrance ramp to the front door of MICs, and another lift is directly across the road which you come up coming from La Rambla. There is also a bus stop outside but we didn’t use that. It is worth looking at the T10, T30, T50, or T70 travel cards they are exactly as they say in trips. Depending on how much you are going to travel. We stayed within zone 1 but that is a big area and we done 48 trips for the week. They work on the metro, buses, trams and trains all very wheelchair friendly (another review on Barcelona).
Access was great everywhere we went with two size lifts back to back, the one at the back we only used when we arrived and were leaving when we had our bags. Otherwise we used the lift at the front door. Access in the room was first class, lots of space to get around. We didn’t use any of the other facilities apart from the restaurant for breakfast.
I don't know if there was a public toilet we only needed to use the one in our room. I only used the sink in my wheelchair otherwise my wife put me on the shower commode chair in the bedroom for the shower and toilet.
The staff were so friendly and happy to help anytime. One lady had an app on her phone where she spoke it translated and spoke English, vice versa when we asked a question. You couldn't ask for friendlier and helpful staff.
Anything else you wish to tell us?
We would recommend MICs 100% to anyone and we will be going back in the near future.
