I’ve been a big fan of Citizen M Times Square in the past—comfy beds etc., but I feel like the newness of this location is beginning to decline and the staff should have more visibility than it does. We had to book two rooms because we were traveling with our teenage daughter and despite having phoned and asked on multiple occasions (being told they made a note of it) to have adjoining rooms, when we arrived, we were told it was impossible. To make matters worse, they put her next to a younger single guy who decided to bring a friend home one night and greeted the entire floor with their hotel porn worthy of a sleeze motel. Not good. I mean, if that’s what you’re looking for, Citizen M has it. It wasn’t what we paid for … and I wish I would have known prior to booking.

The check-in was quick enough, room had all you need, great location close enough to central park and very close to all the retail shops you could need. Also the subway is at your doorstep if you need it.

Something out of a bad dystopian movie. Not what I expected. Room was small, Canteen food was "meh" and everything on the check-in/out was self service. Do your research and check your expectations before you check in.

Dear mje186 I am truly sorry you did not enjoy anything about your stay with us! Looks like your overall experience was horrible. It is disturbing and even as we know we are not for everyone we do meet everybody with a smile and all the best intentions to make their stay pleasant. Thank you for trying us out! Kind regards Trine

We stayed at the CitizenM Times Square for 6 nights. I’ve stayed in a few CitizenM hotels before so know what to expect - functional rooms, everything enabled via iPad (or now via the app, which is great) and great service by the staff. Some of the reviews I think are particularly unfair about room size or layout - CitizenM makes this really clear in their website and booking prices: small room, big bed, none of the extra faff. If you’re not comfortable sharing with the other person then you may want another hotel! The one thing I like about CitizenM hotels is that the rooms are pretty much the same regardless of where you stay. We went for a high floor room and whilst we didn’t have a direct view of Times Square we enjoyed being higher up. The location is great, just a 2 min walk from Times Square and a 1 min walk from the A, C and E trains from 50 st. The rooftop bar was a great touch however during a day of bad weather it sprung a leak and was closed the remainder of our stay. Otherwise we had a great stay at CitizenM - the location was great, service at the bar and canteenM were top notch and would look forward to staying at another CitizenM in the future.

Hello citizendyl_jb Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We are happy you have become a raving fan of citizenM and that you appreciate the feeling of coming home, that you express by sharing, that you know what to expect when you visit us and that our ambassadors create the same welcoming feeling wherever you stay. We highly appreciate your comment about the room lay out as that to the point expresses who we are. We want to be transparent and honest about our rooms and our offerings in general and that being said we are proud of our well designed and high quality rooms. I am sorry you had to experience the closed cloudM bar. We did indeed have a water leakage that forced us to close the bar for a short period of time.. Hopefully you will find your way to one of our other sky bars any time soon. Thank you again and welcome back! citizenTrine

This was such a fun hotel and the staff was excellent. Ask for Lord Jerry at the bar, he makes the best drinks in NYC hands down! The location of the hotel is in the middle of everything and easy to find, with lots of art and great views from rooftop bar. Room was super tech friendly and check-in/check out was fast. Highly recommend.

Did not have good veg options in breakfast. room was high tech but small. Also, I was expecting water bottles in the room but had to come downstairs to have water. It should have been provided in the room itself. Check in exp wasn't good. I had to wait at reception for 20 to 30 mins.

Dear sunnybhalla2022 I am very sorry to read that your stay with us did not fully live up to your expectations. We see an increasing demand for vegetarian and vegan options and I welcome your comments which I will pass on to our F&B manager. Based on a lot of requests from guest about the water bottles in the rooms and because we want to support a more sustaiable future we have decided to remove the bottled water. Sparkling and still water is available at the canteenM any time of the day and free of charge, the circumstances around your wait at the front desk are unclear to me but unfortunately during rush hours you might expect a bit of wait. If you decide to come back at stay with us in the future I recommend you dowload our app for a faster self check in. Thank you again for your feedback. It is highly appreciated citizenTrine

As I do on my usual getaways every couple of months I read the reviews on hotels and when I looked at this hotel i thought, wow thats for us. How wrong I was! We arrived the beginning of this month ( may) and the hotel looked nice from the front, and the location was great! The lobby was stylish and welcoming but things went downhill from there. We checked in on a self check in screen with the help of one of the staff and given a room on the 8th floor. We entered the room which I can only describe as the size of a very small caravan with a pod shower, toilet and the sink outside of it in the main part of the room. We went for breakfast the next morning and for the rest of the week which we had paid for in advance which was about 38 dollars a night for the two of us but wish I had never bothered. I didn't realise that the nice lobby and large bar came at the sacrifice of the seating area in the breakfast area and if I had wanted to seat at long tables sharing with strangers I would have booked into a hostel and it would have been a lot cheaper.Breakfast was pretty basic with scrambled eggs, chicken sausages, bacon and potatos which might have been fried but went all soft in the Dutch oven they were kept in. The chicken sausages were awful and thought I had cracked a tooth on one the first day. They had cereal, and small slices of salmon also with I can only assume was guacamole but not sure cos it looked like it had been in a dehydration unit. How the hell does a so called top quality hotel run out of bread in a city like New York ! But it did and seemed to most days. The bed was comfy and pillows were nice but I had to climb over my partner to take a pee and nearly broke my neck one night falling off after climbing over her whilst trying not to wake her up. They have an i pad in the room which controls pretty much everything but has what looks like a little camera on it which overlooks the bed and room and it made us very uncomfortable so had to buy a sticking plaster to cover it. To put it bluntly it was like a posh hostel and if I had wanted to stay in a hostel I would have paid hostel prices. I went to New York for my birthday and it ruined the stay. I did wonder why I could not find the square footage of the rooms when on other hotels were clearly visible. Pros, comfy bed and pillows, staff nice, good location, shower great Cons, breakfast and breakfast area terrible, rooms small even by Japanese standards, bed too big for room, too gimmicky

DearI3160HUdavidh Clearly we failed to meet your expectations after you had even looked up citizenM, been reading our in general amazing reviews and deciding to come stay with us for your birthday celebration. I am truly sorry to hear that your stay with us left much to be asked for. citizenM operates out of a well thought though concept that has proved to work since the opening of our first hotel in Holland 16 years ago, One thing we do realize and emphasize in our product development is that we are not a hotel for everyone. We believe we are quite transparent in our marketing in terms of our room lay and offerings in general. That being said we always welcome feed back and food for thoughts and therefore thank you for sharing. Regarding our breakfast selection we constantly try to meet the demands of our guests and your comments will be shared with F&B. Our full living room space is available to use for breakfast which gives you several options to find a private spot where you do not have to shore the table with other guests. We would have been happy to compensate you for the remaining breakfast, unless of course it was part of a package deal via a third party. Not sure if you approached on of my team members to look for a solution. I can reassure you that we are not spying on our guests via a camera in the mini iPad! Again thank you for your feedback and thank you for trying us out. citizenTrine

Stay 5 nights in this great hotel, friendly helpful staff and good rooms. Compact but the location compensated, on West 50th/broadway. Short walk to many restaurants, theatres and Times Square. Subway station on the corner. Lovely rooftop and lobby bars.

The room was smaller than one on a cruise ship. It is the width of a king size bed. The bed is adjacent to the window and can only be entered from one side as it fills the end of the room adjacent to the window. The lighting can only be turned on full for the room other than colored lighting for the bathroom or a bed side lamp. There is no coffee maker in the room. There is a small fridge.

citizenMichael Thank you for sharing your feedback after experiencing staying at citizenM. We do admit and are quite transparent about our somewhat small rooms and also the fact that the bed is adjacent to the window is clear on all of out marketing channels. I am however Sorry to hear that that did not fit you liking. I appreciate your comment about the staff, as they are the most important factor to make our guests feel at home and I am glad to hear that we succeeded on that. Again thank you for trying us out citizenTrine
