“Not for business travelers”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

citizenM is a funky boutique hotel geared towards hipsters. This place is not suitable for business travelers, particularly not for professional women. The bathroom is literally in the middle of the guest room. There is not adequate space to get ready after a shower, nor to hang suits/dresses. There is no place to unpack folded clothes. The hair dryers are not powerful enough for a blowout of any kind. There was no iron. 20-somethings are running down the halls all night long. This place feels like a hostel, decked out with Apple computers and mood lighting in every room. Cute but not practical.

Room Tip: Do not stay on the first floor and avoid the front of the hotel as smokers populate the front stoop...

Liked everything about the hotel except the bed. It was as hard as a rock and I like a firm bed. Give it a try. Zuid Station is a little out of the way. Helpful staff. Remote was not difficult to figure out for mood lights and such.

I stayed here for four nights and was thoroughly impressed with everything. The staff all around the hotel are warm and welcoming and were always on hand to provide useful information about the city. The concept of the hotel with the mood pad controls in every room was awesome and the lounge area with 24 hour food and beverages on offer was incredibly handy. The hotel's location is also perfect as the short tram ride into the city allows you to experience more of the city than you would do staying right in the centre.

This was my first experience of the citizenM chain. The hotel location is maybe not as central as some would like - near Amsterdam Zuid and a good 15 minutes from the centre by tram. The airport is probably quicker to get to.

That said - it is a very modern hotel. The room is spotless with a huge bed. The toilet/shower built in the one room so be careful who you take with you!

Downstairs is a very good attempt at a communal area with plenty of TVs and comfy sofas. A computer area is also available. I enjoyed the easy access to the bar but did feel the food was a little overpriced.

Still, would definitely visit again.

This hotel is excellent for travellers who are alone or in a couple. And it is fantastic for business trip. The organisation is one the best I've ever seen. The self check-in and check-out is very efficient. I've done it in a couple of minutes. Staff is very efficient and happy to serve the guests. Room has an optimised layout, with beautiful decoration. Restaurant has very good variety of options - all self service - at reasonable prices. I'll definitely stay there again!

great staff very helpful and friendly, location is perfect 15 mins from centre via tram no 5 which stops practically outside hotel, bed super comfy room practical with everything controlled from a mood pad, super cool.., only thing i would say is if you like your bathroom to be private this place isn't for you, a frosted glass cubicle which isn't very soundproof..lol.. other than that i would give this hotel 5 stars and highly recommend..
