“cool, practical place to stay”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

So cool it hurts. The technology, concept, modern design, and service are top notch. Amazing use of space. Super comfy bed (and quiet). Easy walk to airport. Great price point with EVERYTHING included (TV, movies, internet, phone). Excellent bar. Yes, the rooms are small, but that's the point. If staying with another person, you can pull a curtain to provide more shower/ toilet privacy; however, definitely don't share a room you haven't seen naked before ;-). My husband and I stay in almost exclusively 4 and 5 star properties, but both loved CitizenM and intend to stay there every time we travel through Amsterdam in the future.

Stayed there for 1 night. Rooms are small, but very practical and you control the everything with your remote control (including mood related lightening). Very relaxed and large social area, where you can eat, drink, use computer etc. The staff is very friendly and check-in & out are very quick, because you can use one of the relevan terminals.

Excellent stay, cool design and the lobby with its living room style and meeting area are great, especially if you travel alone it is easy to not feel that way!)
Clean rooms, easy and quich check-in/out...
Minuspoints: small breakfast variety, slight draft in the room from aircondition, the shower & toilet cubicles in one room with the main room are innovative, but probably not ideal for each couple !)

Stayed 1 night at the Citizen M, as we were going to a concert at the Ziggo Dome. We chose the hotel based on good transport links to the City Centre and the Ziggo Dome. The hotel is 5 minutes walk from Amsterdam Zuid train and Metro Station, and round the corner from Tram Line No 5, that takes you into the city centre.
First impression of the Hotel from the outside is its looks like a non descript box. Once inside, it's very nice, chic and clean. The check in is self service from a couple of computer terminals, but there are always staff floating around to assist you. The staff also serve at the central bar/ food area, which is pretty convienient and reasonable priced.
The rooms are pretty compact with minimal space for luggage etc, but very clean. The shower and toilet aren't in separate rooms, but part of the main room. The screens around the toilet and shower are normal see through glass, which we didn't have a problem with, but some people may not like this. I would have thought, as a minmum, the toilet and shower doors could have used frosted glass, to give a little bit of privacy.
The bed was very comfortable, but its hemmed into the end of the room, so if your sleeping beside the window, and need the loo, you have to crawl over your partner to get out the bed.
The lounge areas are nice and large, with free wi fi and access to PC's (not sure if their free as I never used them). The decor and artefacts dotted around the lounge areas are very interesting, with plenty books to browse.
Overall, a very good hotel, nice location, very clean with friendly staff. I have given it a 4 due to the limited space inside the rooms. We were only staying 1 night, so had limited luggage, but it would be difficult living at the hotel for a longer period with a lot of luggage.

Convenient location, this hotel is an amazing value. I have stayed at hotels in this city that cost 3 times as much, and they paled in comparison. Efficient use of modern tools and room design. The staff could not have been better. Common space offers unique ways to"chill" or enjoy small group meetings.

Highly recommend!

What a fantastic hotel! The rooms and facilities are excellent and the staff are the friendliest and most helpful I've ever met, all of them. The style of having small rooms complemented by communal lounge areas works really well, and the room automation is sensational. It's not just a hotel, it's a great experience!

Small rooms but very cool. Bathroom and shower part of main room and mood lighting. Very cool experience. A no frills hotel but one I would recommend. Great location close to everything. I would suggest this hotel for younger guests.
