“Trendy and chic hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2011

CitizenM is a very trendy and chic hotel suitable for the younger people, couple or solo traveller. Self serviced check-in, touchpad for all the room settings was a nice change from the usual services that a hotel provides.

I like how the colour of the lights in the room can be changed and the big bed and also the unlimited tv channels and free movies. I didn't like that there was not much space to hang up clothes and there wasn't a hot kettle in the room. But I fully understand that this is a budget style hotel so I'm letting this 2 points go. The free wi-fi in every room and the free use of iMac at the lobby was a great bonus for those who cant live without internet.

Will recommend this hotel to only couples or solo travellers because of the see-through shower and translucent shower and toilet pods.

We stayed for a long weekend and loved this hotel and loved Amsterdam. It's in a really good location just 5 minutes walk from Amsterdam South station which is only 6 mins from the airport - non of the stress of arriving in Central station!
Lobby is really stylish but with non of the stuffyness of more conventional hotels - really relaxed vibe and friendly staff.
Rooms small but really cleverly designed making use of all the space - the bed is huge and really comfy - missing it already!
Easy tram journey into the centre of the city!

Funny, trendy, chick and very different from any other hotel I have experienced!
The decor is so cool, they bed is wonderful and soft. Everything is clean and tidy. Is was perfect for our one night stay before departing Amsterdam. The toilet and the shower are in glass cylinders in the middle os the bedroom - so don't be shy ;) And there was no place for clothes.
The staff was så helpful and kind even at 4 in the morning when we checket in.
The shop downstairs offers breakfast to go bags - didn't try it because of the price - but a great idea!

Room Tip: I think they are very similar.

If you are into trendy and modern this is the hotel for you. The bed was so big and comfortable! The bathroom pods were like nothing I've ever experienced. They make the most of the space in the rooms. The food offered in the hotel lobby was really good and affordable. The location was a little outside of the city but only a short tram ride away.

Just a 5 min train ride from the airport and a 5 min walk to the hotel. Around the corner is the tram stop which takes you directly to most of the museums, city centre, red light district, and more. The hotel is a modern and funky place, but was comfortable and quiet.The staff was very nice and helpful with directions. Would stay here again.

The hotel is fantastic! The whole concept is great, including the rooms (bed, lights, tv, etc.), bar and the lobby. The staff is very helpful! The location is not very close to the centre of the city, however, by tram is very easy to get there, so not a problem at all. Probably the coolest hotel (but not the fanciest) I've ever been...

Although it’s a bit out of the city center, we found the location to be excellent. There is a tram stop within walking distance (1-2 min walk). The hotel is funky and fun! The rooms are small but comfy. It’s like nothing we’ve ever stayed in. The room’s settings are on a customized (welcome screen with YOUR name on it) hand-held pad that allows you to play with the lighting, tv, and blinds. Very clean - and comfy beds!! I’d recommend CitizenM to anyone!!
