First of all, I love this quirky techno hotel. I like the ambiance; I like the free wifi; I like the mood lighting in the room and the free movies. The (king size) bed is comfortable and the setting of all the various aspects of the room are quite clear on the Samsung tablet control.

My only grip is the sound of building work which persists from the various sites around the hotel. My view from my bedroom is of two different sites and people are at work there drilling and hammering from about 7.30 onwards. I suppose this is fine...but...if you wanted a lie in or a bit of a peaceful atmosphere, you would really need to head into the heart of the hotel with a courtyard view or onto the Southwark Road side of the building.

Great hotel, as I said, but shame about the neighbours.

Room Tip: Go for a courtyard room

Really could not fault this hotel at all. The outside of the hotel is modern and welcoming. Inside the hotel, automated check-in is simple, friendly and helpful staff with a modern and comfortable "lobby" area with a bar, fire, restaurant etc.

The rooms are all customisable including blinds, TV, lighting, mood etc from the CitizenM "Moodpad." There is a brilliant range of free TV shows and free latest movies with free WiFi internet. The bed is HUGE and even though the rooms aren't huge, they are big enough.

Only gripe is there isn't a huge amount in the area apart from the Tate (about a 5 minute walk) and the nearest Tube station (Southwark) is a 10 minute walk away - there aren't a huge amount of taxi's passing the hotel either, however the Hailo app for your smartphone sorts that problem out.

Modern hotel which hits the right note on every level. Bright, arty, clean, what more could you want?
A friendly team who were happy to help make it a memorable stay is a big plus.
Bedrooms not overly large but takes care of your needs...........the bed has to be seen to be believed, not only is it overly generous it's so comfortable you won't want to get up in the morning!
Although the cooked breakfast and lingering over coffee whilst reading the paper in the communal area would be enough to tempt you. Pick a spot and watch the world go by.
Definitely recommend citizenM and would happily stay again.

Room Tip: Ask for the top floor away from the road, very peaceful.

i can't wait to stay here again. i can't think of even one niggle and i'm a hard task master. if i had the money i would live in this hotel. it's beautifully designed.every aspect has been carefully considered to stylish perfection. The staff are just perfect..i loved the ambiance of the bar / eating area.i could easily just spend a day there. Anyway stop reading this and get booking. you won't regret it. if anyone finds anything wrong with this hotel they're not in their right mind

pure affordable class.

trendy, arty, city, capsule rooms; the rooms are small but very practically organized. you pay what you take for a balanced breakfast. nice art on the walls. the crowd is busy but respectful, the staff is efficient.
