“A convenient place for short stay”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

Very stylish and convenient hotel. Breakfast was awesome. Lobby area was very attractive. You get free wi-fi which a plus point. But on high season this becomes too expensive and scores low on value for money

This is an award winning hotel for its trendy and innovative style and concept. Everything was great, from the very efficient self-service check in process, the very stylish (if not quirky) lobby area, to the small but very high tech and intelligent-designed rooms.
Loved the wall to wall bed by the window and the abstract cuddly toy that comes with the room (yours to keep for 20 Euros). We had great fun playing with the remote control that controls the ambiance lighting through a touchscreen. The quality of the toiletries is very good, room was spotless.
Caution! The glass pod style toilet and shower look great and are a very clever use of limited space but might not be to everyone's liking. If you are not that intimate with your travel companion, it can be awkward. Thankfully, we had no issues with this concept
The hotel has a Starbucks-style snack bar on the ground floor that offers good quality food but it is a bit pricey
The hotel is located just opposite the World Trade Centre and Amsterdam Zuid station (a 15 min ride from Schiphol). There is a tram stop just next to the hotel, where you can catch no. 5 that passes very regularly and travels past the museums and the city centre before it terminates at Centraal station. Very convenient!
The area around the hotel is mainly residential and very quiet. There are restaurants and shops down the road, towards the city centre, as well as next to the World Trade Centre.

Spent a night at the Citizen M hotel in Amsterdam last week and wow simply amazing sums it up pretty well. Rooms are exceptional, ultra chic and cool. The downstairs are is likewise. It's not central and is a good tram ride from the centre (20 mins) but worth it. There is a tram stop right outside the hotel, which goes past the Van Gogh, Steidelijk and Rijksmuseum, and it couldn't be easier to get about, plus you get the added benefit of being away from the hustle, bustle and noise of the centre. Great little bar just down from the hotel.

I stayed in this hotel at the start or July and was expecting great things after recently staying in the CitizenM in London. It still had the same idea behind it and it all has a very warm and welcoming feel. The hotel was slightly disappointing as the room was extremely hot all of the time, and not being able to open up a window in the room made this quite uncomfortable. There was also no fridge available in the room which was quite annoying. The breakfast offered was nice and very similar to most breakfasts in other hotels in Europe. If you don't mind being in a small room and don't care much for privacy from the person you are staying with, this hotel is good.

Staying in Amsterdam just for one night, I was kindly welcomed like at home in this modern and design hotel located in a pleasant area close to Beatrix Park and Beethovenstraat.
The room, maybe a little bit small, was very modern, very clean and the king size bed was excellent.
The breakfast was good, with fresh baked bread and a wonderful coffee.
The members of the staff were very friendly and helpful.
The check in and out procedures were very fast.
In conclusion, a very good first experience. I'll recommand this nice hotel and I'll come again, when staying in Amsterdam.

We stayed for 4 nights in the Citizen M and really enjoyed it. It is located one stop along the train line from Schipol (cost 2.50euro) so you get there very quickly after landing. The rooms are tiny as mentioned in all the other reviews and there is very little storage - but that forces you to be tidy! The shower / toilet 'tubes' take a bit of getting used to but it is a great shower to wake you up in the morning. The best thing about the room is definitely the bed which is huge and very comfortable. We used the free wi-fi every day as the connection was excellent, and we also watched a couple of the movies.

The slight downsides are that the food and drink in the 24hr lobby cafe is pretty extortionately priced - although I have to say the coffee and the cocktails are really excellent! The hotel is out of the city centre so you have to be happy jumping on and off the trams but the tram system is excellent and we didn't find that a problem. My husband described the hotel as "one step up from a youth hostel" but I think that is a little unfair as it is certainly in a different league from any youth hostel I ever stayed in! However it is definitely aimed at young travellers who are staying for a short time and spend very little time in the room - but we both agreed we would go back!
