bleak room not as described, but great location

Paid extra for an "executive suite", which was identical to the standard room. Sticky in places, random hairs, and a very dark room - however absolutely fab location and good breakfast spread/next door bar.

Great Hotel

The France hotel is basic, very clean and friendly. The location is superb, lietrally a 2 minute walk from train station. We got their for 9.30am and rooms are not ready till 2pm, not a problem, just leave your bags in secure room (you can also do this when leaving). Breakfast isn't the best, but that's only because we like a full english breakfast to set you up for the day! You are on the doorstep of the red light district, but you dont get any hassle (odd tap on the window when walking past)! But very friendly and relaxed area. It was the first time to amsterdam for us and when we go back, we will be staying at hotel france again.

Cheap, clean and ideal location

Good location, staff friendly, ideal for train station and ideal for sightseeing, culture, coffeeshops, Dam square and canals etc. However heating in room didn't come on and the maid service only made the bed they didn't lift any rubbish from the room. I think I would go back as it was quite cheap in price and it was in an ideal location. Room size was fine as we were hardly ever in hotel until last thing at night, so it wasn't an issue for us, the breakfast next door molly malones is ok if you like continental breakfast. Overall the hotel met our needs, there was a couple of things that were a bit annoying but we let them go as it was only a place to crash for us and we were never in.

not bad at all

the france is a great hotel with friendly service, its based in the centre of amsterdam and only 2minutes from the train station! And the breakfast is in a bar next door! The only thing i found though, was that there wasn't an actual window that looked outside. although there was a window, it looked into a tiny shaft in the middle of the hotel and didn't let in any daylight. but to be fair i wasn't in the room that much to even care

Good location but thats it!!

I stayed here for 2 nights in mid November, and would not go back! There are plenty of better hotels in the area of the same price and they are a lot better quality! The location is excellent, only a short walk from everything you need! The staff at the reception desk are helpful and the lobby itself is a nice area to sit in, and the tv 's in the rooms are decent but sorry folks there the only good things about it! Now here's the bad stuff..... We booked a double room but when we arrived we were allocated a twin room, which was in the basement with no windows (despite request at time of booking), the walls were dirty and so was the headboard on the beds! When complaining to the reception desk surprisingly they had no double rooms available... only double executive rooms that was an extra 43Euros! Despite our voucher saying we booked a double we still had to pay as there was no way we could have slept in that room! The restaurant does not exist, well not that we could find and it's only a small hotel! They don't have pay tv/movies and it depends what type of room you have as to what channels you get! We didn't try the breakfast nextdoor at Molly Malones... didn't look very tempting! Overall it's a cheap hotel in the centre of Amsterdam but don't expect anything more.... you get what you pay for!
