“Excellent concept and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

We absolutely loved staying at Citizen M! Even though is not in the center of town the tram can take you there in less than 15 minutes. Amsterdam is a small city so anywhere you stay won't be far away from the attractions. The overall concept of the hotel is awesome. Extremely trendy! If you check out there site you will get the idea. The rooms are spacious and very thing is controlled by the remote. The bed is a plus. It's a great size and the window is huge. This hotel was the best choice during our 2 week stay in Europe. Hopefully they will open more hotels like Citizen M around the world!!

We've stayed at the Citizen M in Glasgow so not our first experience.
All the elements are very well designed and the overall 'feel' of the hotels are great, with a modern ambiance, albeit perhaps slightly contrived.
The breakfasts are great value and offer a really wide choice. It is worth knowing though that there are other eating and drinking options near to the train station and financial area, a short walk away, if you fancy a coffee and cake / pastry to go.
A downside for me with regard to the room is the toilet being situated in a semi-transparent pod - not everyone's idea of a good idea - however well you know the person you are sharing with. Though, as a good friend of our said, given the Dutch reputation for openness, we should have felt relieved that there wasn't a live stream from the toilet to the lobby :-)

At first glance, it looks a sort-of glorified Japanese capsule-hotel: rooms are rather small, and not "perfect" from the practical point of view. There is no bathroom/toilet as such, everything is in this "corridor" with start-trek like capsules for the toilet and the shower.

My feeling is that they made virtue from necessity: as they needed to have a certain amount of occupancy per square meter in order to make profits, they used the best possible design to make it look "cool". They managed, in fact. The place is nice, and provided you don't have a big suitcase (no place for it), or to hang a few shirts (there's no wardrobe, only 3 hangers, which make it feel like a Ibis budget ... ), it's a perfect place to stay if you need to have a meeting with your co-workers (lots of place provided in the lobby, for "real" work meetings) and use the room for sleeping and showering.

Workers there are really nice, and the bar, open 24/7, is really good - although food choice is very limited (feels like a petrol station, although with fantastic choice of beers).

Ideal for anyone staying one or two nights. I stayed 5 nights for business nearby at the RAI exhibition centre, and the lack of any storage is very inconvenient. No wardrobe, 3 hangers is not enough.

Great showers, in the same room with glass doors, the toilet is the same.

Lights, curtains, tv, ac all controlled by one control, great until it fails.

Lovely and helpful staff.

Great place, I did like it but not for any more than 2 nights.

Hotel was awesome, clean and modern. Staff friendly and helpful. Large beds, showers that works, air conditioned rooms, loved playing with the mood pads and the personalization of the rooms. You really have to pay attention to the little details at the hotel, full of really interesting tid bits that makes the stay full of little surprises. Location very close to the RAI, a short walk through a beautiful, calming Beatrix Park (took me 10 minutes by walk). Tram station about a 1 minute walk (it's just across the street actually) and takes about 15-20 minutes to get to restaurants area and about 30 minutes to get into Centraal station. Our senior management team stayed there and were very impressed by the hotel. I'd stay there again.

This hotel is class. It was amazing. So different from any hotel I have ever stayed in. The bed is so comfy. There are mod lights in the room that change with music. It was such an enjoyable experience. Can't wait to return.

Although originally dubious about the hotels self service aspect, we were greeted by the nicest possible staff who helped us sign in, and choose what style room we want, and how many room cards we wanted!
Hotel had everything we could possibly want, lovely cocktails, and only a short walk from the city centre (or just outside a tram stop)

Room was amazing! (Especially as we're both a bit geeky) remote controlled mood lighting and tube showers were very cool, and the massive bed was very comfy. Also choice of movies was great (not that we were in the place long enough to watch them) and although the room was quite small, the great use of space meant we didn't really ever notice it.

Definitely would recommend it to anyone travelling to the city on work or play if you like a modern feel
