“Just as good as the Glasgow hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2014

Very good hotel the rooms are a little small. Large bed & flat screen everything in the room controled by a tablet. Very good shower, but storage space a little limited. Very good WiFi & a free buisness area where you can print off as well.
Drinks a bit expensive but its London. £15 for breakfast expensive, but there is a small M&S over the road that does good bacon baps. Stay again yes unless I get a very good deal elsewhere.

Room Tip: Get a room higher up for less noise.

I love how they have re-thought the idea of a hotel and what people really want. The public spaces were great - with a variety of seating options. People actually wanted to be int he lobby working, talking, having a coffee or drink... The rooms were interesting and fun. The best part, though, were the meeting rooms. It was the most comfortable and efficient hotel meeting room I have ever used. It was clearly thought of to be a space where creativity and collaboration is assumed to be important. I highly recommend CitizenM both for 'mobile citizens' and business meetings.

Room Tip: I stayed in the interior courtyard rather than 'city view' assuming it would be more quiet...

It is a GREAT hotel! The room is not big( for this price, u can only get smaller rooms in London), but its clean, convenient and super comfortable king size bed! Everything controlled via a tablet. GREAT Wifi connections through the whole hotel! There are restaurants and supermarkets downstairs. Simple but good quality breakfast for only £11.95. And the food are organic as well.
I really have no complain at all!!! Recommended!

I stayed here on business on the 27th/28th May.

Overall the stay was great, below are the positives and negatives.

Good:
- Very clean
- Extremely modern place with some nice touches which really makes it a memorable place to stay. Such as the modern art in the lobby area, and the comfortable sofas / seating. It really gives it a different feel - and it looks as though it is somewhere local business come to quite often for informal business meetings.
- Rooms are set out very differently - the main highlights are the bed (very comfortable) and the shower (one of those drench showers)
- Free movies, free Wi-Fi, and a handy little Samsung tablet to control the whole room with.
- Easy check in and check out

Bad:
- The shower and toilet are in this strange little cubicle which looks like a wet room - but the sink is outside of this cubicle. Not really a *bad* thing I suppose, but just odd.
- There is no tea or coffee in the room.
- The room is small - like most London hotels - but this one would be tight for two people.
- No irons in the room - instead you have to venture to a separate room in the hotel where the Iron is based. There was someone using it at the time - I imagine I was quite unlucky, but it was still annoying.
- The breakfast is not too great.
- Location is awkwardly placed around a 10-15 minute walk from the nearest tube station. I imagine this would be quite difficult to get to for less able bodied. Only good thing was that there is a Vapianos opposite which is a superb place for lunch / dinner.

Overall, very chic / suave, and definitely a step in the right direction of how I imagine hotels to be these days - but other places have accomplished this better - like the Andaz at Liverpool Street which also benefits from a superb location.

Room Tip: I chose a room facing towards the courtyard, it was quiet - which was welcomed!

Rooms where modern and fresh, and cool design. Welcoming lobby with a huge fireplace to hang around. Great location for wandering along the river over Tower Bridge to sights of London. Walkable distance from Londer Tower metro station. Numerous food place and a great market nearby make this a great place to stay.

Huge comfortable bed, lovely shower and toiletries in a room full of technology to play with! Only stayed one night but would love to return. Easy fuss free check -in/out. The staff are very friendly and could not have been more helpful. We left early in the morning to visit Chelsea Flower Show. It was ppouring with rain but the girl on reception insisted we took an umbrella, even though we were not returning to the hotel that night.
The reception/lounge/bar/eating area is really interesting.- fab designer furniture and loads of great books to read if you have the time. Lovely cocktails on offer at the bar. Food is self service with plenty of variety to suit all tastes. I'm sure we will be back before too long!

This is a really interesting place to stay. The rooms have lots of technology to master, huge very comfortable bed, good shower and toiletries. The reception/lounge/bar/eating areas are full of designer furniture and loads of amazing books to read if you have the time. The staff could not be more welcoming and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We only stayed one night and left very early the next morning to go to Chelsea Flower Show. The weather was awful so the girl on reception insisted we took an umbrella, even though we were not returning to the hotel that night. I'm sure we will be back again before too long though!
