We booked this hotel as an alternative to our usual London accommodation which was unavailable due to the Olympics and absolutely loved it! We were a little apprehensive about what to expect regarding size of room, bathroom facilities etc after reading previous reviews, but after staying I would definitely now not hesitate to recommend Citizen M!
Ideally situated a 5 minute walk from Southwark tube station and a 2 minute walk from the Tate Modern and the Southbank area, the hotel is very funky with a quirky lobby/bar/restaurant area. A really comfy spot to enjoy late night drinks after a night on the town!! As previous reviewers have mentioned, the check-in process is completed by the guest on arrival at electronic terminals but it is a very straightforward process with clear instructions shown on screen, although there are staff on hand to assist should it be necessary. The bedrooms continue this quirky theme and can only be described as unique! The centre piece of each is without doubt the huge bed which stretches the entire width of the room. (I don’t think I’ve ever slept in a more comfortable bed!) Everything from the lighting and temperature down to the window blinds is controlled by a tablet, but again it is all very straightforward to understand and if nothing else provides a toy for the male guests to amuse themselves whilst their female companions get ready etc!! One thing to bear in mind is the was hand basin is located in the room itself, outwith the bathroom “pod”, but there is a curtain that can drawn to separate that part of the room should you want a bit more privacy.
As regular visitors to London we have stayed in many different hotels and apartments across the city but the experience we had in Citizen M was perfect in every way and we definitely hope to return many times in the future.
