    The location

    Like other reviews we found that although the Floris France Hotel was in a good location many other aspects of the Hotel let it down. When we arrived at the Hotel we noticed that our room had a bad stain on the ceiling and the handle of one of the windows was broken so we could not open it. That first night we had rain and we found out why the ceiling had a stain , it leaked all night wetting the bed and floor. We changed rooms and this room was missing a block out curtain which was a pain as the Hotel across the road had spotlights on its wall all night which caused our room to be quite bright. The housekeeping could not get it right either as every day they forgot to do something like no hand towels, a failure to fill the soap dispenser, not cleaning cups and not filling the toilet paper dispenser. Most of the problems incurred could easily have been fixed but it would appear that management is a lacking .

    Location

    The Picture of the rooms on the internet is nothing like the room!!!! the rooms on the first level was dark and smells of smoke! I asked to be moved, we then had a room on the four level which was brighter, for the price that we payed for two nights( 291euros) was expensive! no tea or coffee in the room, but the beds,sheets and towels were clean.

    Good

    Location was good - right at the heart of Amsterdam, 5 minutes walk to central train station and the rate was reasonable for Amsterdam (which is an expensive city for lodging). On the other hand, it is very close also to the sleazy part of town - the Red Lights District. It is rated as 3 stars, which is a little high in my view, but then in Amsterdan it seems that all hotels are subject to star inflation.

    The owners/managers should be a little more vigilant in their staff selection: some of the staff were nice and helpful, while others rude and impatient. Wi-Fi not very robust (keeps disconnecting).

    Location

    The rooms without windows must be clearly highlighted when booking. It was disapointing to have to stay in a windowless room without any discount from normal price.

    Close proximity to Amsterdam Central Rail Station and access to city centre

    Lack of basic facilities and size of room, No chair (no room for chair), no tissues, wi-fi although advertised could only be used in hotel foyer. Window was either fully open or shut, could not open a little so had to put up with wind blowing on bed all night. Airconditioner did not appear to cool only fan was working.

    Fabulous

    They provide a basic service,which is well done and is good value for the price.

    The rooms are rather on the small side,without a chair to watch tv.

    Fabulous

    Excellent location - a few minutes from central station on a quiet canal, though next to the lively red light district. We felt totally safe, the staff were really polite and helpful, facilitating a change of room as the one we were given had no natural light. Pub the hotel uses next door does great breakfasts(included) - you can sit outside next to the canal, and you can get a coffee there anytime. Towels changed daily.

    Internet access only available in lobby. If you don't have your own laptop, there's one pay computer that occasionally broadcasts to the lobby the rather sobering announcement "Attention. You are running out of time." Be aware that a 5% city tax is added to your bill and weekends cost more- in our case the triple room went up from 135 to 195 euro.

    Superb

    Location is great. Free WiFi in room (staff says it should work only in the lobby, but worked fine in the room for me). Room was clean, canal view was as promised, bar next door was great.

    Noise from the canal and corridor (that's probably the problem of all hotels in the Centrum). Hotel door is sometimes closed in the night, staff is not always fast to respond to the doorbell.
