Citizen M London Bankside is by far the coolest and most unusual place I’ve ever stayed in. The decor is awesome; a random mix of furniture and designs. The bar, dining and courtyard areas are just bursting with colour and feel welcoming and relaxed. The books that line the walls can be read downstairs or brought to your room and are available to buy should you fancy it. There are iMacs for use by all guests and you can print off anything you need without much fuss. The staff are extremely helpful, efficient and friendly and on a Friday night the bar is a very lively spot, certainly not your ordinary hotel bar.
The rooms, though small, are like Japanese pods designed to perfection with a big comfy bed, minimalist decor and a nifty way of making the smallest space functional. Each room is equipped with a tablet from which you can control the TV (small selection of free movies on demand), mood lighting and radio. The rooms are spotless, cosy, free from clutter and the changeable mood lighting in the bathroom is rather entertaining.
London is a very pricey place for accommodation in general and while this hotel was more expensive than somewhere in another capital city it was still cheaper than other less interesting, welcoming and unusual hotels in London. Go and be prepared to be ever so impressed!
