“Good base in funky hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

The hotel is located part way between the airport nad the centre of Amsterdam. That said it is an easy trip into the city centre by tram.

we were offered free coctails and a complimentary taxi trip on arrival - we accepted the cocktails - really good.

The hotel has a bit of a non traditional concept with self check in, pod like rooms, pod/ cubicals for the wc and shower and remote sets mood lighting etc.

Hotel is located close to Amsterdam South (Zuid) station.

room comfortable, though lacked somewhere to stretch out when sitting - essentially use the bed. TV at foot of bed.

Room Tip: all rooms identical

This hotel was fantastic with so much to offer. Service was excellent, breakfast was great with lots of variety, cleanliness was to a top standard and location was great. A short tram ride away from the centre which allowed you to be away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to get to and from during the day and evening. I would certainly recommend this to anyone who goes to Amsterdam as you will be treated with the best service and like each and every guest is special.

This was our first stay at a citizen m hotel and it certainly didn't disappoint. The service was fantastic as the staff are at hand for your every need. Floris was a standout member of the team as he treated us like royalty. The breakfast was tasty with fresh pastries and fruit; the rooms were clean with monstrous beds and a brilliant selection of films; and transport links are perfect to the city and there is a tram stop 100 yards from the front door.
We are planning a trip to New York and plan to stay at the citizen m hotel on the merits of this one!

A stones throw away from the airport , this is a great place to spend the night if you are on transit or need to catch an early morning flight. You can push your trolley right to the entrance of this hotel. I flew in from Havana and with a booking confirmed and it was an ease using the check in kiosk. My credit cards were all not accepted and when the receptionist swiped it manually it was accepted as expected. I further inquired if cash was accepted if the credit card for any reason is rejected. She said no. Only credit card accepted.The hotel must understand that Amsterdam is the gateway to the rest of the world from Europe.Passengers have to undergo countless scans on our bags , body in every airport and the magnetic tape can be affected by these machines , friction and wear and tear. And after a 13 hour flight a visitor with cash is left in a lurch because the credit card shows error , is very exhausting and dissapointing. There must be some flexibility . Hi Tec is the way to go but dont foget the human factor, machines are bound to make mistakes. Rooms are comfortable and everything works. Excellents staff and Heineken on tap is the best I've tasted in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: Any room is a good room

Very different from other hotels, I'm addicted! Near to RAI, smart designing, very clean and the bed is really perfect! Almost everything in this room can be controlled by a touch screen, very neat. Staff only speaks English, very friendly and helpful.

It was the first time I stayed in a citizenM hotel and I must admit it is very different from any other hotel. The lobby area as well as communal areas are very modern and there is a great vibe to them. Although the room was very stylish the shower knobs were a bit stiff and that was a bit of problem!
Really loved the blinds that completely block the sunlight and allow to have a great night's sleep!!

This is our first time in the hotel and ........ very different from other hotels. Everything is smart designed, from the rooms to the tea bags. It's VERY clean everywhere and nice designed. The rooms: this is our first time having a bed from wall to wall but not that the bed is that big, but the rooms so small. Also our first time entering our bed through the toilet area first and than the shower area. Sounds strange but within the room it feels normal and logical. The reason is the smart and modern computer controlled room. Free movies in the room. Do we come back: the first hour you think not but after get used it is a come back hotel. Only 150 meters from the airport = walking distance. The central area is big, cosy, modern and friendly staff. The restaurant area is just enough for a simple breakfast or very simple lunch. For dinner: better save a toast from the breakfast if you are hungry in the evening. That's all. The staff only speaks English but is VERY friendly. Are there any minors: as the room is computer controlled (light color, movies, electric curtains, etc) the control system in the room is WIFI orientated. So our room had a bad WIFI connection, so we were lost .......
