Citizen M is a very interesting concept - very reasonable prices (especially for Amsterdam), an exceptionally cool chill out/common area with minimalist, functional rooms. Everything has been thought through exceptionally well - I was concerned that we would be too cramped in our room but they're actually fine provided you don't have *too* much stuff and aren't claustrophobic.... The room design maximizes utility in a small space - the incorporation of the bathroom and shower pods is very clever. I would probably feel a bit uncomfortable sharing such a small room with a friend but it was fine with my partner. The bed is giant and serves as a lounging/couch area.
I loved experimenting with all of the funky automated controls and giving us mood lighting (everything is literally a press of a button away). The friendly stuffed rabbit on our bed was also a nice touch. I think my favourite part of the hotel is the common areas downstairs - really cool spaces filled with designer furniture to hang out in with the added bonus of the bar/cafe on hand for easy refreshments if needed.
The location is also handy - not right in the middle of Amsterdam but within a stone's throw of the number 5 tram which will take you into the city, passing by various attractions like the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum. I believe there is another Citizen M right next to the airport.
This hotel won't be for everyone (my parents would hate this) but is definitely a good value yet funky option for a weekend break in Amsterdam.
