I took my girlfriend to Amsterdam for her 21st for 5 days and chose this hotel for it's modern aesthetic appeal and reasonable price compared to some other Hotels I considered. With this in mind I certainly felt that I received value for my money in a modern, clean and slightly novel room. We went with a King room and the 'King' aspect was certainly evident when we entered the room.
Although there is not much in the way of storage, you certainly get a superb bed with a choice of pillow firmness, excellent rainfall shower with mood lighting and all of your national movie, TV and radio stations on demand via the room's media hub. For example we could get BBC Radio 1 or current DVD release film titles (films that only came out a year ago) on demand and no extra cost. In addition to the media hub and mood lighting, we also had electronic blinds. Due to the multitude of modern facilities I did not mind living out of my suitcase during the stay. In some ways I believe Citizen M offered us a unique room with a hint of quirkiness. I did not mind that the room was quite 'boxy' or small as its design allowed for the feeling of a light and open space.
The staff are extremely helpful and greet you as you come and go from the lobby. We were very grateful for the accurate advice given regarding local transport. The Wifi in the hotel has a strong signal all over and only takes two seconds to register to - this was a massive plus for researching attractions and updating maps on our phones.
We had absolutely no problems with noise so the walls must be up to Parr. In addition to this the hotel is situated literally two minutes walk from the closest tram stop where you can get the number 5 towards Centraal Station - this tram will take you straight through the heart of the city and past any stop worth mentioning. The tram takes a maximum of 15 minutes and is very regular. The area that the hotel was situated felt safe as it was only a stone's throw from the financial district where the RAI and WTC buildings reside. To that end It has excellent links to Schipol Airport.
One last thing - do try the cocktails at the hotel bar as the staff have been well trained and made me and my girlfriend a very tasty Mobile Martini! We really appreciated this cocktail as it was courtesy of the Hotel manager due to the special occasion. This proves that Citizen M will do everything they can to make your stay pleasant and memorable.
The bed in the King room is excellent
