This is the first review I have written about a hotel. My fiance and I just finished a 3 day stay at the Floris in Bruges and we were pleasantly surprised. We chose this hotel based on some of the reviews and have to say that we were not disappointed. As a family traveling with a young child we found this hotel very well equipped to entertain young children. Its not to say that there are young kids running around screaming and we found the hotel to be very peaceful and quiet especially at night when it is most important. The childrens play area is full of colourful toys and activities for very young children and a big screen TV with movies and XBOX360 for older kids. The hotel has a great swimming pool which our little one loved splashing about in. The breakfast room and what was on offer was a good selection and great value for money if choosing the bed and breakfast option which we did and would recommend. The room was big enough for the 3 of us and clean and tidy. The cleaners came in everyday and made the beds and gave fresh towels. The hotels decor is contemporary and cosy and always spotless. There are several areas to relax when you arrive at the hotel and private areas to sit and enjoy access to the free wi-fi which we found very useful. Upon arrival we were greeted by Eric at reception who was friendly, chatty and very helpful. Over our stay he recommended places of interest to visit, helped with directions and even made dinner reservations at a lovely restaurant. I think people will always find something to complain about when it comes to reviews for hotels. If you have 5 star expectations then you should pay for and only ever stay in 5 star hotels. The Floris has been given a 3 star rating, however I think it deserves 4 stars due to its facilites, cleanliness and comfort factor.
This hotel is perfect for anyone looking for a comfortable, affordable & great location for a hotel in Bruges, but especially families.Overall we had a fantastic stay at the hotel and would recommend it to anyone.
