My partner and I stayed at Citizen M in June 2010 and were pleasently surprised when we arrived. From the outside you would not think it was a new modern hotel as it looks very much like an apartment block, but when you enter you are greeted by a modern, fashionable hotel. The decor is very uptodate with inventive designs in each room. The Mood pad is great! This enables you to change the mood lighting in the room, amend music, TV and even close your blinds without having to get up off the luxurious King Size Bed.
If you are a little shy then be aware of the toilet and shower. They are intergrated within the rooms as glass cyclinders which are frosted but you can still see the outline of the person showering or going to the toilet.
The room was always clean and they even have a handy safe in the room for storing valuable items while you are away from your room. The staff were very friendly and were always happy to help us. The food however was a little limited and we found alot of Sushi in the fridges so if you dont like raw fish you are better off going out to eat as we did.
The tram to the city centre is just across the road and Tram 5 takes you to the centre of town within 10 minutes for only 2.60 euros. Beware the trams can get full and can even break down as we unfortunately discovered! :-(
Overall the hotel was great to stay in as we prefered being a little out of the city centre as it was much quieter but still had a good location as the Zuid Train station was just a 2 minute walk away and there was even a nice quiet canal nearby which we sat by and watched the world go by.
The hotel is good value for money, very clean, polite staff and we loved the privacy of the rooms and modern furnishings....it reminded me of Ikea mixed with the Big Brother house lol. We will definitely be staying there again on our travels to Amsterdam....excellent hotel.
