To ensure a fully positive quality to the hotel stay. This is the objective of Inclusive Hotel, an initiative dedicated to guests with disorders on the autism spectrum, children and adults, and their families and caregivers.

Inclusive Hotel is the brainchild of Best Western hoteliers and is developed with scientific support from L’abilità Onlus.

Our Hotel participates in this project: in order to welcome our guests in the best way, our staff has undergone a training course held by the experts of L’abilità Onlus. We have selected the ideal rooms, analyzed the common areas and prepared a Hotel Guide to consult in advance in order to know the property and have details available for a more comfortable use of the rooms.


The Hotel Guide contains all the information you need to prepare for a hotel stay for people with disorders on the autism spectrum. 


And furthermore, to simplify and make information more immediately available, inside the rooms you will find information sheets listing the services of the hotel and information about our city translated into the symbols of Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC).
