“basic but good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

This hotel is in a great location and only a 5 minute walk from central station. But it took us 2 hours to actually find the hotel because the locals didn't seem to know where the hotel was either as the address on the internet was incorrect. For 3 star we found our rooms pretty basic but the rooms were clean and the breakfast was lovely so that made up for it. Reasonably priced and friendly staff. However their website is a little deceiving. They show pictures of luxurious rooms but these are only the doubles, single rooms are not like these. Overall. I would defiantly stay here again and recommend to others.

Really enjoyed my stay at Floris France. Had a double room that overlooked canal. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful & pleasant. Breakfast at Molly Malones was great & set us up for the day. Location was perfect. Would definitely stay there again & would highly recommend.

We have just returned from a stay at this hotel. On checking in we were given a room which had a bathroom door which was hanging by its hinges and wouldn't shut the shower was broken and the view from the window was of rubbish,dog ends etc which had been thrown from the upper floors.We asked for a different room but were shown one that had no window and was baking hot, so decided to stay put. On the plus side the beds were reasonably comfortable and fairly clean. We had breakfast next door at Molly Malone's which was very good.

This France hotel is very near to the centre of amstedam (and the red light district). the decor is modern, the facilities are fine for what you need for a night. Clean towels provided. Rooms are nice and warm. plenty of storage for our clothes. We didnt have much of a view from our room, but I guess we got what we paid for! There did seem to be one lift that served the whole hotel though, couldn't find any steps that were not fire exits.
Breakfast is self service on the Irish pub next door, with cereals, continental meats and cheese, bread, yoghurts and fruits as well as fruit juice and coffees. Really good price for the room and breakfast and would stay again. Could do with a few more leaflets and maps maybe to tourists that haven't bought anything with them?

Stayed at this hotel without previously reading the reviews. Having booked through last minute.com stayed in room 207 while the main area of the room seemed clean even with the tattered units. The bathroom however was a different story mould on the shower curtain to the point where the bottom was crusty. The management should be embarrassed. Over priced,worst room I've stayed in. The Pictures on websites are not true to the hotel regardless of what they will come back and say. New cleaning staff needed or a serious re-training program..awful

stayed in this hotel twice and the location of this hotel is superb! Very helpful staff and free wi-fi is nice. Rooms are clean but dated although this is fine for a 3*. Only issue is our room was right by the stairs and people going up & down kept me awake. BUT I am a light sleeper & the noise didn't keep my boyf up!
There was a leak from the window in our room but reception moved us to another (better) room immediately.

Breakfast next door was good. Didn't run out of anything.

Good location, 5 minute walk to Central Station, and close to all the attractions. The "superior" room I booked was very clean, a good size, but the flooring wasn't in great condition and a few patches of damp on the ceiling, so needs a bit of work. Staff helpful. For where it's located, and for the time you spend in your room, it's good value. Breakfast in Molly Malone's next door was ok.
