“Excellent hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2014

I was in Amsterdam for two days over King's Day weekend and you absolutely get your money's worth. The rooms are clean and nice showers, bed and TV. Everything comes with the price to your room so you don't have to pay extra to watch TV channels etc.

The staff were also extremely friendly, approachable and friendly. I arrived from a 23 hour fliht from Sydney and the staff immediately made me feel at home the moment I checked in until the moment I checked out two days later.

An absolute gem this hotel is.

That was one the most interesting places I stayed at, really different from many other hotels I've seen. Well, first if all, books - albums that you can find in the hotel. Stop and check them out whenever you see one, lots of cool pics! Some are naked. Service was good or very good, but nothing memorable really. Bed,,,,,oh that bed,,,,,,omg, just go sleep on it. At least one night, it's huge, no , it's enormous, so white, feels fresh, made me feel myself very special. Also, the hotel is close to the business center I went to every day, very convenient in terms of transportation. Toilet & bathroom- I loved both. Wish I took my boyfriend with me)) This hotel is not a super cozy place, but I have no complaints at all. A very sexy place, btw.

My husband & I stayed here for 2 nights recently. We were very impressed with the modern & clean room. Everything has been well thought of. Everything in the room has a purpose, it all works perfectly. Id go back in a heartbeat. Its only a couple of minutes away from the number 5 tram that takes you right into the town centre. Very highly recommended.

Having stayed in citizenM Glasgow a couple of times I knew what to expect and that I would enjoy my stay here. The design is very similar, carpets and furnishings identical, with the same great, compact rooms and the massive, wonderful beds ! The staff are just as friendly and helpful, sorting us out with tram cards and directions etc ( we declined the offer of bicycles due to the shocking weather last weekend ). The hotel is in a quiet residential suburb very near the Amsterdam Zuid station, so dead easy to get to from the Airport, and tram number 5 stops just outside so getting into the centre is no problem at all. Love Amsterdam and will make this my place to stay the next time I visit.

Stayed here whilst attending a conference at the next-door Rai.Stayed for 4 nights and had my girlfriend join me for the last two.

Location is good for local businesses, Rai and 5 minutes from the train station (one stop to the airport) or tram (no 5 into town).

Foyer is cool. Bar is cool. Breakfast is pretty good. Staff are generally young, friendly and helpful.

The room is different though. It is thin and small and there is no formal division between the bathroom area (which is where you enter the room) and the sleeping area and desk. The bed is the width of the room and large enough to sleep 4 or 5. That may be the aim given the picture opposite the lift on the ground floor (adults only).

I would stay again if me only but not with my girlfriend as well. Maybe I'm just a prude though.

Great place to stay for a short break. walking distance from train station and easy to catch a tram right outside to see all tourist hotspots and Downtown.
The toilet and shower has no privacy in the rooms so if you're happy to take a poo and your partner can see you do it then crack on! Beds very comfortable;e but room very claustrophobic. No tea making facilities or room service which is not good if you want a culpa when you wake up. The girls on the check in desk and bar area are brilliant.

Room Tip: All rooms are identical.

There are two citizen M's in Amsterdam, we stayed at the one on prinses Irenestraat (not at the airport). The hotel is a quick 10 minute train ride from schiphol airport, which costs about 3.50 Euros each - get off at zuid station, and from there its only a short walk to citizen m.

We paid for early check-in (20 Euros) when we arrived, although its down to availability as to whether this is an option. Check - in is self serve, and you create your own key card to access your room.

The rooms are perfect for a short stay in Amsterdam, and you'll find a few nice quirks: a touchscreen pad controls mood lighting, blackout blind, TV, films on demand and temperature. Rooms are compact, and as others have mentioned the toilet/shower is 'in' the room, with little in the way of privacy - which is fine if you are in good company.

Staff were friendly but seemed a bit too relaxed when it came to dealing with the technical problems we had with our room: key cards not working, touchpad not working, room safe locked us out, day pass purchaed from reception for tram didn't work...after we chased the issues up a couple of times they were resolved though, and we were given a couple of free cocktails.

The hotel is in a quiet area (away from the stag and hen parties) but hop on the #5 tram, directly outside the hotel and you can get to most of the main attractions within minutes.

We were offered access to the hotels bikes - free - but as the weather wasn't very good, we didn't take them up on this.

Overall, its a good base to explore Amsterdam and convenient for tram/airport access. Don't get a taxi to the hotel/airport though - cost us 42 euros, get the train.
