I've stayed several times in the Citizenm City Hotel.
First of all I have to say that the pricelevel is very good, the prices vary between 80 and 100 euros excluding breakfast, altough during peektimes prices can rise till 140 euro.
For the location, cleanliness and rooms this is absolute value for money.
The hotel is located in the South of Amsterdam approx. 20 minutes by tram from the real city center, a tramstop is just a few steps away.
Hotelstaff is friendly but in my opinion their skills fluctuate, some staffmembers are very hospitable and friendly while others are unpolite and not trained enough to do their job. Ofcourse this is my personal opinion but with over 120 hotelnights a year and a job in hospitality I know a bit of the hotelworld.
The rooms are all the same, equipt with a very large bed with soft bedsheets, a small table and chair is provided. The shower is supposed to be a rainshower but at Citizenm the showers are always a suprise. Housekeeping should know that they have to decalcify the stuffed waterpipes, in some rooms the shower just provides a very very little amount of water that sprays in all different directions due to the stuffed waterpipes, in other words it's almost impossible to take a decent shower. So two options; make sure there's enough waterpressure or use a normal shower!
At groundlevel guests can use 4 pc's with free internetconnection and enjoy food or drinks in the Citizenm Canteen. The pricelevel in the canteen is in my opinion to high, 0.25 l applejuice, € 3.25, simple Beefsandwich in carton € 5.50...... prices are like the pricelevel you can find at foodoutlets at Schiphol Airport.
Last point of unsatisfaction: Housekeeping please change the toiletpaper after every guest, I don't want to have a few sheets as a leftover from the guest before!!
As a conclusion, why choose for CitizenM?
Good pricelevel, Free Wifi, Free movies, Great Bed en Good Location.
Service and performance can be better, but CitizenM is doing better then most 4-star hotels in Amsterdam!
