We had a great stay at Citizen M.
We had originally hoped to stay at a B&B in Amsterdam, but were unfortunately unable to find one that we liked that still had some availability. Tip #1: BOOK EARLY! However, via TripAdvisor we came across Citizen M and decided to give it a go.
We were very glad that we did. For the price, it is a great option in Amsterdam and we would definitely recommend it to others. It is a little out of the central city (12-15 mins via tram), but - like many have said before - the trams run very regularly and stop right outside the hotel. We bought 'I AMsterdam' cards which gave us unlimited travel around the city.
We arrived a little earlier than the stated check-in time, but thankfully were able to access our room. There was a young lady assisting guests at the check-in/out stations who was friendly and helpful.
The rooms were exactly as we expected - which was great! As we were only there for a weekend and therefore only had 2 backpacks between us, we had ample luggage storage space. Yes, the rooms are small, but not uncomfortably so. In this city, you won't want to spend too much time hanging around at your hotel anyway!
The shower and toilet cubicles offer neither visual nor auditory privacy, but you just deal with that. We enjoyed the am/pm shower gels!
The bed is supremely comfortable and we both enjoyed 2 wonderful nights of restful sleep. We also really enjoyed being able to access free wifi and the opportunity to relax with unlimited free movies in our room in the evenings. Bonus!
We did not experience any issues with excessive noise during our stay.
We didn't order the breakfast, but instead just grabbed single croissants / coffee on the run. Both were reasonably priced (by Amsterdam standards) and tasty! The staff in the cafe were always attentive and very friendly.
As we had a late evening flight, we were able to store our luggage at the hotel while we explored the sights during the day. It was wonderful to be able to relax in the uber cool lounge and watch the football for an hour upon our return before heading to the airport at the end of a busy day. I especially enjoyed the great range of 'coffee table' books available.
It is very easy to get to /from the hotel from the airport - just get off at Amsterdam Zuid (1st stop) and it is right around the corner. Keep in mind that some of the ticket machines at the stations don't accept coins (and most don't accept notes), so you may need to pay with your credit card, which costs an extra euro.
Overall, we found the hotel to be comfortable, very trendy, friendly, convenient, fun and great value for money. As you can see from earlier reviews, many agree! Enjoy!
