“Amazing & Affordale hotel especially for the budget traveller”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2010

My wife and I found out about citizenM when it was voted as one of the trendiest hotels of 2010. We stayed here in August 2010 for our honeymoon. We were on a budget after the wedding ceremony and didn't want to spend too much for a room. This was the perfect choice and I wouldn't have changed it even if I had the extra money to spend. We walked into the hotel and I knew that this was my kind of hotel. Self check in was awesome and very user friendly. The staff were also very nice and informative. Once we step foot into our room, we knew that there was something unique about this hotel. The toilet and shower were in the middle of the room, and the bed was at the far end. The remote control brought a big smile to my face since it controlled pretty much everything!! Awesome hotel and would be my only choice if I were to come back to Amsterdam. :)

Great beds, very comfortable. Location ok- but very close to tram/metro so easy to get around. EURO 35 in taxi back to airport.
Pretty close to Olympic stadium which we needed for marathon.
Breakfast at EURO 9.95 not great- don't book it upon check-in just buy what you want from canteen in morning. Great coffee though.
Staff helpful.

This hotel was fresh and interesting, with lots of great design elements in the room and the lobby area (an area that actually had people using it, it was so nice). The first day, when there was water, I loved the rain shower. The rooms were very quiet with an extremely comfortable bed. Although it was 20-25 mins from the city by tram, the trams were easy to use and ran late. The neighbourhood was nice, with some good cafes and shops a tram stop or two away (and it's always nice to see non-tourist areas of a city). I like the idea of food being available 24/7 to purchase (especially when there are no shops within short walking distance).

However, it fell down on value for money. At 114 euro a night I wouldn't call it a budget hotel, especially when it is so far out of the city. In other cities this usually indicates cheaper prices. A non-cooked breakfast of 9.99 euro is extremely high. Other things were more reminiscent of a budget hotel rather than the price, such as the water (handbasin as well as shower!) not working on a Sunday morning for at least half an hour as everyone was apparently showering - not acceptable in a hotel of that price in my opinion, and the staff member I spoke to didn't sound suprised about it - they really should book less people in or buy a larger water tank.

If I could get a cheaper price I'd stay again as overall the experience was good.

We stayed here for 2 nights and thought this hotel was great - it is very trendy and modern. The bed is probably the most comfortable we have ever stayed in! The rooms are quite small but have been designed perfectly to get the most out of the space available. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The location was good - the tram stop is just outside and the number 5 tram will get you into central Amsterdam in about 15 minutes and the airport is only 1 stop on the train which took about 5 minutes. Overall we had a great time in Amsterdam and would definately stay here again if we go back!

Stayed for one night in this hotel and as mentioned in other posts, that's the perfect amount of nights for this hotel.

Loved: free wifi plus 4 iMacs available to use. Movies on demand. Mood lighting. Rain showers

Didn't like: lack of storage space and proximity of toilet.

Would definitely recommend for a weekend break as it's modern, contemporary an close to the city centre.

We stayed at the Citizen M for a weekend break to Amsterdam. The location is good for an airport stop over as it is a 10 minute train ride from Schipol. However it is a bit out of the centre for a weekend break (20 minute tram ride into town).

The rooms are funky, modern etc with all the electrics and lighting operated off a single device. However if there are two of you staying they can feel a little cramped and there is no hanging space for clothes, so pack light! On the plus side the sound proofing is really good so despite the rooms being crammed in your sure of a good nights sleep.

Overall a good value, quirky hotel, but one I'd say is best suited for solo travellers staying for one night.
