Reviewed 16 July 2014

Great hotel in a very good location, we did get an upgrade to a very nice suite which was very welcome, they have put much thought into the amenities such as providing a children's area equipped with toys, games and TV. Staff were very helpful and provided information when required. The location of the hotel is great with only a couple of minutes walk to the main shopping and tourist attractions. I would reccomend this hotel to anyone wanting a base to discover beautiful Bruge.

Arriving off the ferry from Hull we were told our room was not ready, but we could leave our things in the secure luggage room and check in later in the day. After a pleasant day in Brugge sampling the beer, we returned to the hotel to be given a free upgrade to the best room in the house, many thanks to the staff.
We have stayed at the Floris Karos before and the room was large and comfortable and of course clean, but the suite at the top of the hotel was all these things and more. We made use of the pool on 2 of the days of our stay which was really refreshing on the hot June days and helped work of the chocolate.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and we have got great recommendations for local restaurants. We would recommend the Karos to our friends and family and we would stay here again on our next time in Brugge.

My wife and I spent a very enjoyable week here to celebrate our ruby wedding anniversary.The reception area is immaculate,the staff at reception very pleasant and helpful with any queries .Our room was spotlessly clean and a decent size.We made good use of the pool although I found the heat in there a bit overwhelming.The location is excellent,with the centre of town with its shops,bars and restaurants a short walk away.The railway station and bus terminus are also near at hand and a 15-20 minute train journey would take you for a day at the seaside if you wished!-we did! The buffet breakfast was another plus-a good selection and well presented .All in all we were very glad to have chosen this hotel.

At the front desk we were warmly greeted by Renée (hopefully I’ve spelt that correctly), a charming and humorous young gentleman who helped us understand the town’s layout and the hotel’s procedures.

We stayed in room 239, which was very spacious with a cool loft-like feel, including a window granting access to the rooftop (not that I’m suggesting you go scampering along the tiles). The room had a decent wifi signal and bathroom.

Other nice features of the hotel include a good breakfast spread, pool, small gym (more for yoga than anything else) and in the morning the daily weather forecast is slipped under your door, which is a nice touch.

Being that the service was so friendly and the hotel only a 10-minute walk from The Markt (Market Square), along with the cool room, I’d highly recommend Floris Hotel for the more modest budgeting travel.

Not a bad hotel, reception area was very nice and modern, staff were friendly and very helpful.

The room was nice and clean but lacked a mini bar or fridge.
There was no air conditioning in the room but we had a fan that was quite nice but would have liked air conditioning as the weather was very humid and sticky
The bed was very comfy and big and we both slept very well.

Only real criticism of the room was that the bathroom was a little shabby and could do with a makeover.

The pool facilities were nice but again could do with a slight makeover.

I'd stay here again but would probably shop around for a better price as I found the hotel a little expensive for what I got.

Dear Mike, thank you very much for your kind writings. As we're a 3* hotel airconditioning nor mini-bar are obliged, but we do have an on-site bar where clients can enjoy a cup of coffee and/or tea.

As for prices: please note that the best deal is always to be made via the hotel direct, therefore, should your travel plans bring you back to Bruges, do not hesitate to contact us directly.

Kind regards from the entire Floris Team.

The hotel is ideally located in the historic centre of Bruges just a short walk from the centre. There are restaurants nearby and the reception staff can help you make a reservation. The reception staff were very friendly and very helpful, advising of good places to eat nearby, of local attractions and of our best route to Ghent as we were travelling on from Bruges and there was a train strike while we were there. Reception gave us all the details we needed for the local bus service including how to purchase tickets and which stop the bus would go from - excellent service. They also provided us with a map to explore Bruges.

Breakfast was very good with plenty of variety of hot and cold food and drinks. The hotel also have a baggage storage area so they can mind your bags for you after you have checked out so you can explore the city without baggage. There is also a small pool and gym which I made use of.

Rooms are of a decent size. We had requested quiet rooms and our rooms were nicely located so that we were not disturbed by any noise from the street outside.

Would recommend this hotel as a base to explore the city and surrounds.

Pleasntly suprised by elegance once inside. Parking is tight at the rear and keys must be left with reception - worth noting if your precious with security!
We had free upgrade to Royal Suite and it was impressive although very hot!
Good fresh selection for breakfast too.
Would certainly book agin when in Brugge
