Interesting and different experience in the affordable alternative for expensive hotels.
Worth a visit!
Well thought concepts and clever marketing. Mid-range pricing =screening out trouble-makers. Location is alright. Tick all Kotler's 4Ps boxes
I like the sense of humour of this hotel from its website, quotation on the doors and even the finish touch on the invoice "because you're not the Queen of England,
our rooms don't cost a fortune (if you are the Queen, you're welcome too)"
Love the massive comfy Bed with power rain shower in the middle of the room.
The bed is bigger than 2X2m. There is also a blind that block all the light for a long sleep. After the stay, I've got an email from them saying "If your own bed now feels a little small compared to the one in your citizenM room, we wish to offer our sincere apologies." haha
We enjoyed using Phillips moodpad from the blinds to the lights, shower and TV. Free Movies on-demand are excellent! We watched Up in The Air and It's Complicated there so they are very recent for DVDs.
Because it's in business area (WTC) There are not many restaurants around the hotel especially after 8pm or weekends (Albert Heijin to Go and restaurants around there are closed on weekends). Only Burger King at the Amsterdam Zuid station or some food e.g. Sushi, Salad at the hotel.
Would recommend to a friend who wants to stay for a few nights but they need to set the right expectation of this hotel. And the fact that it's not in the heart of Amsterdam. The 20 mins journey to the central station wasn't too bad. Plus you get to see other part of Amsterdam.
All in all enjoyable experience and I would love to see this kind of hotel in other cities.
