If you are looking for a new and unconventional hotel experience, this is the place to stay! Surprise comes already at check-in time. It's fully self-service (check-out as well...). Next surprise is the room itself. Minimal dimensions (except for the bed), but a very clever and innovative approach to shower and toilet spaces: 2 glass columns, like the ones we see in sci-fi movies for teletransportation. Bed is square, fit within 2 walls, beside the window, and you are free to choose the orientation that most suits you. Then a very innovative environment control replacing conventional lighting and background music. A final word to the common relaxing areas, something between a library and your living room. As interesting to tell your friends about as the city itself...

If you are in for a modern interior design this is the right place for you. The lights, the electric curtains and the TV are controlled from a single remote that sets the color of the light in the shower and toilette. The remote also allows you to set an alarm that wakes you up in the morning by opening the curtains or the lights automatically.

The rooms are pretty small but the furniture is minimal so it takes the least of the available space. The things that I disliked is the lacking of a drawer so if you're accommodating for more than three days you don't have a special furniture piece for the clothing.

Also there is a privacy problem, even if there is a textile curtain that separates the room in two and the window capsule is matte you can see or hear your travel buddy in it's most intimate moments.

The hotel staff is really friendly, the checkin system is through a computer, do it yourself, but a hotel employee is always there for assistance.

I rated the location "Very Good" though is a little far from the center of the city but it takes a 15 journey with the 5 tram to get there. It was also convenient for us because it took only 5 minutes to walk from the Amsterdam Zuid train station to the hotel. Amsterdam Zuid station is the closest train station to Schipol Airport.

Overall it was a great experience, the free wifi and the imacs in the lobby were really appreciated I would definitely return and accomodate at CitizenM Amsterdam.

I was on Business visit to Germany, and thought of taking a couple of days leisure trip to Amsterdam.

I searched for good Hotel near Airport, and I found CitizenM Hotel (which is barely 10 mins from Airport) with good ratings given by travelers.

Its a very unique reception area they have, it is self checking system -

The only problem is they DO NOT Accept CASH Payment - So anyone making reservation on their website with card guarantee or going directly at the Hotel should be more cautious and should carry ANY Debit/Credit Card (International VALIDITY)

The transport connection is too good, there is tram stop just outside the Hotel, Metro and Train station is just 2 mins. walk.

The rooms are exclusive - Though its too small for even 2 people. But its unique.

Its worth trying this unique idea.

Very original. Cool, relaxed but efficient and no-nonsense. Very friendly people. Modern and artistic. Unique blend of business and socialising, privacy and being-among-others. On the doorstep of the train/metrostation from/to the airport and the rest of Amsterdam. In the business-heart of Amsterdam. Tram 5 takes 5 minutes to the city center.

Having great ideas to offer you a 4-stars hotel services differently, this hotel has a strategic location close to Schiphole's airport.
Not a complete breakfast, but high-quality material.
During our stay, their wifi-based room control systems were almost down, but the staff managed to make us happy by providing some other services (like complementary breakfast).

Room Tip: All the rooms look the same! The only difference is their view, which is not important to most of bu...

I have stayed last march at CitizenM city.
At first we were a bit dissapointed how far away it was from the citycentre. It was okay cauze we could easily take tram 5 downtown. We were hoping to walk home after partying so that was a pity.

Rooms were good. A bit small but provided everything we needed. The food at canteenM is okay, not everything taste very fresh. Breakfast is Really nice though. Good continental breakfast! All you can eat. And the coffees taste great!

Now the best part of the hotel: the staff. This makes the hotel great. The personal attention is very good. take time to have a chat with one off them. Some might overreact the friendlyness (makes it a bit freaky) But its still better then stiff staff. Two girls looked really sinsire: i think cath was here name. She was really sweet and looked really happy to work there, she always helped me when i needed help for example when i had problems with shower. Other girl was sally from California. she was friendly and sweet and looked very honest and real. She always welcomed me and helped me finding good restaurants. She gave me just some extra attention and maded sure evrything was fine. And she makes Great cocktails!!! Have a chat with her she is fun! Hope to see my citizen guys and girls back!!
