I had a great night in CitizenM Rotterdam! It's a really new hotel, it opened last December.
Location is great, train/subway/tram (railway station Blaak) are in front of the hotel, it's close to the area 'Oude Haven' where you can find cosy restaurants and nice bars with a harbor view.
The hotel is very modern with design furniture like the beautiful group of lamps on the ceiling at the lobby.
The rooms are all the same, only choice you got is harbor view or city view. The city side is kind of under construction so I can recommend to choose the harbor view.
First time you step into the room it can be a bit surprising, because it is a small room (not like the rooms you usually see). But once you take a seat, look around you'll get used to it.
So don't let the size scare you off!
Instead, enjoy the huuuuge bed, the and all the high-tech stuff you can find in the room.
For example every room is equipped with a Samsung tablet with several room control functions (temperature, lighting, curtains, etcetera). The tablet works also as your tv remote and you can surf on the internet with it. You can even control the color of the shower light with it, every color of the rainbow is possible!
The bathroom is more like a big cabin made of matte glass. Inside you find a nice rain shower and the toilet. The basin is placed in the room itself.
The room is very functional, they've used every centimeter of the room and it doesn't make me feel claustrofobic at all. I thought it was really relaxing and didn't feel the urge of leaving the room haha.
Also the lobby is very nice, the bar looks modern and is 24/7 open. We took some nice cocktails there. It's a nice place to hang out and of course you only have to take the elevator to be back at the room.
The rest of the lobby is made into several living room areas, where you can relax and watch tv.
Just like breakfast, there isn't a seperate breakfast area like most hotels offer.
I almost forgot to review the crew, everyone is very helpful and kind! Fun to see they have employees from all over the world (UK, Lithuania, Brazil), it gives it an international feel and made me feel comfortable.
So if you like modern/design/high-tech and want to have an experience instead of a regular hotel, be sure to book a night at CitizenM!
When picking a room, choose the harbor view!
