citizenM Schiphol Airport
Ranked #2 of 10 Hotels in Schiphol
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 August 2009

We made a last minute decision to spend weekend in Amsterdam. We looked for hotels at the city center but most of them were fully booked or the prices had gone sky high. Our only option was to take a hotel outside the city---and came to know about Citizen M Schiphol.
Citizen M Schiphol is the trendiest hotel that we have ever been to. We didn’t have to leave the airport grounds to get there---it is just about a few steps from the main entrance of the airport. The building from afar is like a grey/beige box with the name of the hotel written on it. At the back of it is literally the runway of the airplanes. In front of it is the main highway to the airport. ‘sounds noisy, isn’t it? BUT IT ISN’T! It is actually quiet and very open. The walkway to the hotel from the airport is covered, therefore, rain and snow proof, I may say. The hotel entrance was very red, with its red glass doors and red glass hallway. The friendly English-speaking young man greeted us and booked us right away. Our hotel room was all ready when we got in at around 10 am. Key card was scanned and not stuck in the key slot. THE ROOM WAS DIFFERENT AND WE WERE CAUGHT IN A SURPRISE! Son loved it instantly, while I had to analyze it logically and get over it. It was beautiful at first glance but definitely weird. Intelligently and tastefully designed but…still different!
The room is controlled by a computerized control panel. When you get into the room, the panel greets you welcome. From there, you can control everything in the room---the lights, the window blinds, airconditioner, tv, etc. You can choose which mood do you want your room to be---business, romantic, love, etc. Super cool! Room has a large wall-to-wall bed with a big flat screen tv in front of it. Toilet and shower are two separate round cubicles but still is a part of the room. Its shape and location in the bed room is really awkward yet tasteful. It is like a cubicle where you utter the words : “Beam me up, Scotty”, or the bedroom of one of the teenage kids of the Jetsons. A hotel mascot awaits you in your room when you come in. It’s a rag doll and it is called Malik. She’s there to accompany you during your stay. If you decide to adopt her, you will be charged €19.95. Shampoos are in dispensers. You can buy the same shampoo with Citizen M’s logo on it from the souvenir shop of the hotel. There are about 60 tv channels in different languages. Film tv channels are free of charge.
My favourite part of this room is the wide glass window fronting the runway of the planes! Watch the planes land and take off from your bedroom window---how cool is that? Inspite of its closeness to the airport, this hotel is really SOUND PROOF! You can’t hear any sound at all! The bed itself is also the most comfortable bed that I’ve ever slept on. Lots of large pillows and the linens were soft and clean!
The bar downstairs is very cool and trendy. There are ready made foods that you can take by yourself. The price of the meals are very reasonable. Breakfast is available twenty four hours and there are so many places to lounge around, two conference rooms to hold your meetings and a computer area where you can use about 6 of their computers and printers FREE OF CHARGE! The overall design of this hotel is very young and futuristic. Very attractive for the youth, the young once and the modern business people who wish to stay there just for a lay over.
The down side of this are the toilet and the shower that was pretty much a part of the room. The toilet has a smoked window, yet you can see if someone is using it. The shower wall and door are totally see-thru. There is a white curtain between it and the bed, yet, you can see through it. This is not a bad thing if you are sharing the room with an itimate someone, but if you are sharing it with a friend of the opposite gender, hmmm...privacy might be difficult. I shared it with my teenage son. I took the shower with lights off and so did he.
My overall impression of this hotel? COOL! We liked it and will definitely going to use this hotel again. Will recommend this hotel anytime!

One night stay couple in their early 50's. We really enjoyed our stay and like the free movies. The room was quiet and the front reception made sure we had a quiet room as I am a light sleeper. The price was 65.00E prepaid on their website. We stayed night before our flight and went to airport for some dinner and snacks. The only thing we missed having was an alarm clock. Was fun stay!

Stayed at Citizen M for the night before our flight home. If you need a room for one night before catching a flight, Citizen M is a great choice for the money. As we are a family of 4, we booked two rooms and it was ideal. The rooms are small. There is literally no place to place luggage, there are a few hangers by the door for clothes, and the shower and toilet are right in the middle of the room. However, the bed was huge and extremely comfortable with lots of pillows available. Also, the bar in the lobby was fun. The free computers (and there are several) in the lobby were a nice amenity. In sum, for a comfortable night before a flight, Citizen M is wonderful. Oh, and the staff, to a man, was wonderful. The hotel is high tech; the free movies on demand were great but families need to be ware of the adult channels. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

I hope whoever came up with this concept for accommodation has every success. Great value with a very modern touch.

Located a short walk from Schiphol airport, the hotel offers very good value with all the modern amenities travelers for business or leisure would require.

The staff are very attentive, the rooms are very modern (perhaps small and cubicle for some) .......... the main beware is the cost of the food, served from supermarket-style fridges ......... it is very expensive and many residents shop before they arrive. Breakfast is also expensive.

Internet accessibility is great - either use the WiFi network or the Mac computers situated in a very homely set of rooms on the ground floor.

We found CitizenM hotel Amsterdam Airport location thru TripAdvisor. We selected it based on the affordability. We were pleasantly surprised at how convenient it was.. just 5 min walk. Stepping through the red glass doors and into the lobby had the feel of walking into an Apple store - very cool. Free Wi-Fi on large Apple monitors - sweet! The service was excellent. The rooms are small, but very fun - furniture was simple with an Ikea fell. The shower and toilet reminded us of a Star Trek transporter. Lighting, music, temperature, blinds and alarm are all customizable. And one of the first hotels which was quiet, we slept so well. Oh... and lest I forget, the pillows and bed are amazingly comfortable.

We were able to get a great rate online. As we were a family of four, we required two rooms. The assistance at check in was great, and we were placed in close rooms. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and the high tech gizmos/circle showers made for a fun time. Will stay there again, for layovers/flights out.

As an overnight to or from the airport it is difficult to beat, especially at such a reasonable rate. The ability to check in and out with the electronic terminal and then to take the room card with you as a baggage label is especially great.

Shower and toilet areas are very compact and only suitable for those who are supple.

The only negative is the lack of space to put baggage for the international travellers who share a room. Two suitcases are definitely a squeeze.

The bed is great but again, you need to be supple to get on and off it if you are below average height Having a mascot in the room to welcome you is also a great thought.
