CitizenM Hotels are excellent. This is the second one that my wife and I have stayed in (Amsterdam City being the other). The layout of the rooms are super practical and efficient. If modern things scare you, stay elsewhere!
Comfort: I have found no bed more comfortable in all of Europe than the beds at CitizenM (even more comfortable than beds at the Ritz Carlton!). You control the room temp. Shower is a wonderful "rain shower" that is relaxing at the end of a long day. It was easy to fall asleep because the room was completely silent (except for the night that the fire alarm went off) and completely dark (two layers of blinds keep all outside light out).
Clean: The room was clean when we got there and clean each day when we came back. The entire hotel is very clean.
Location: Hmm, this is why I give CitizenM at Bankside a 4/5 and not a 5/5. The location is ok but has no character. It is in a business area which has no charm or any of that "London" feel an American tourist may be looking for. The nearest tube station is Southwark on the Jubilee line. It is about a five minute walk between the tube and hotel. I'd suggest doing a quick Google Map search to find the walking path to make any traveling with luggage less stressful (when you exit the tube station, head towards the office building with a bit of overhang over the sidewalk and you are heading in the right direction). The Jubilee line never seemed to take us where we wanted to go and found that we needed to take about a twenty minute right with at least one change of trains to get to the big sights.
When I return to London, I will probably stay at CitizenM again. But, if location is my number one requirement, I would look elsewhere.
