    1. There are two floors in the building.

    2. There are two storeies in the building.

    3. It is a double-storey building.

    2 and 3 are not natural. "It's a two-story building" is better.

    Re: two floors

    And 'storey' must be the British spelling. (The plural form of this spelling would be 'storeys')
