“Trendy, Spotless and Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

The hotel is very eeasy to find and the lobby is very cool. The hotel uses technology really well and check in was very easy! The Room is small - you certainly wont be doing aerobics in there but was more than ample for what I needed and the location is great - very central and easy to walk everywhere. Times Square is really busy and touristy so I would recommend getting away from there! The room is spotless and the bed is really comfy and it is nice to relax and watch a bit of TV on it (although the view is of the building opposite). I rang reception to ask for an iron which arrived promptly and the rest of the service was to a high standard. The idea of having the tablet to control everything is nice and modern. All in all a very good experience and I would certainly return!

Stayed for three nights. Clean and comfortable. Rooms are small but modern and with a huge window. The best is the rain shower. Another traveler said the room reminded her of a spaceship. I thought of a hotel in Japan or a small cabin in a cruise. The internet is fast and the food is healthy and reasonably priced. It is almost next door from the subway line 1. Location is excellent. Close to theaters, and a few blocks to Columbus Circle and Central Park. Privacy in the bathroom can be an issue .

Hello JaxLatino,

Thanks for your nice review. Glad you enjoyed the room and especially the shower. Between that and the large king sized bed and wall to wall window, we hope the room worked for you, size notwithstanding.

See you back soon.

lets cut to the chase. beds huge, comfortable. rooms small, and I mean small (we didn't visit to live in room though) location (if you are a tourist) excellent. Metro (subway) right outside the hotel. Dunkin Donuts and Subway right outside hotel (convenient for coffee, which rooms didn't have). Only on demand movies we could pull up were porn (reported problem). Staff friendly. if you like the theater district and times square, this is good. if you like larger rooms with more room amenities, look elsewhere. bottom line, comfort of bed, price and location will have us back.

First of all, from a tourist point of view, the hotel is in a great location.
Secondly, the rooms are being controlled by a single tablet, which is easy and fun to use.
The lights and music are all controlled and there are great playlists to enjoy.
My girlfriend and I had an amazing time there!

We spent a night here having no idea what it was going to be like, just wanting a Decent priced hotel near times square. Weren't looking for anything fancy. It was competitive with the cheapest and wow the room was amazing king sized bed and so comfortable. Service was great and that location is brilliant. Can't wait to get back to new york and stay again. Highly recommended.

I stayed at Citizen M for 4 nights and it was a great experience; the hotel had opened that day so the cleanliness was amazing! The hotel staff were warm and friendly and fun, they really seemed to enjoy being a part of this new hotel experience. The food was good and reasonably priced; I only had the soup though, as breakfast seemed to be a lot of food at the time. I am not a huge fan of the location, as Times Square is very touristy but it is central and is great to see the Broadway Shows. The rooms were small but very well done with a great big bed, nice linens, great shower, and a great use of space…I threw my suitcase in the drawer under the bed and hung my clothes and I was good to go! The hotel has a fun vibe in the lobby/bar with people mixing and mingling but also working at the tables. A few negatives of this hotel was it is not sound proof; I was in room 609, which is right across from the elevators and the constant bell of the elevator doors was annoying. The first night I think the door outside my room kept slamming as well, which kept me awake. My electric blind broke the third night and that woke me up rather early as well but they repaired it the next morning. My only negative was I had a great rate ($200.00 per night) which was within my budget, as I was travelling alone. I had to extend my stay by one night and asked Booking.com to see if the hotel would extend the rate for my 5th night, as the rate had spiked up to $350.00. The hotel refused so that was disappointing, as I then had to find another hotel for my last night, which was an inconvenience for one night. I would definitely recommend this hotel but it would depend on the rate, as it is a small room, great for one person and cozy for two. I am not sure what their regular rate is going to be and whether the $200 was just an introductory special so will be interesting to see what the rates end up being. I am thinking of returning to New York in October and the rate quoted was $350 so I hope they watch, as my understanding is they want to provide a great hotel experience for the hip traveller that can't break the bank.

Room Tip: Don't stay in rooms near the elevators.

Hi "teehee30".

Thanks for sharing your citizenM experience with fellow travellers on TripAdvisor.

Appreciate your comment about cleanliness and for sharing about those items that didn’t work. Our team is getting on it. We are looking for a solution for the elevator chime currently.

I’m glad your original rate was in budget, but sorry our subsequent rate made you look elsewhere. Pricing with hotel rooms, like most things, are market driven. In Times Square, we generally come up as a good value compared to others. While are not the cheapest, but we’ll never be the most expensive. Affordable luxury is our creed.

Hope you choose us in the future.

I popped in for a drink at the bar while in the area, and I loved the vibe of the place! It has a ton of personality, but doesn't forgo fantastic quality and service to be interesting. The staff was friendly, and the drink was delicious. Definitely coming back some time.
