I could not have found a better place to stay for my business trip in Amsterdam. Everything is neat, efficient and functional. Particularly enjoyed the multiple work areas, with power plugs, free WIFI, and Mac stations. The ambiance is also very modern and posh, without being excessive. Entering the hotel, one gets the impression of entering a select private club.
The room size was actually quite adequate. Having visited my colleagues who booked downtown (Hotel Amsterdam De Roode Leeuw: old, tiny, dorm like) for quite a bit more expensive, my room appeared like a palace. The bed was nice and wide (real king size, not 2 twins put together), the entertainment system was easy to use, and the shower and bathroom pods were very functional.
The only thing that wasn't great is the food selection. They are forthcoming, however in letting you know that they offer "canteen" food on their website. Not a huge selection of warm food, but the coffee is good.

I appreciated the location, in a nice quite neighborhood, walking distance to the train station, the tram station and quaint little shops. It's 20 minutes by tram to downtown Amsterdam, and ~10 minutes from the museums. Very convenient, but without the loudness of the tourists and party goers.

Overall had a most enjoyable time at the Citizen M. Would definitely book back there if I ever have the pleasure of going back to Amsterdam.

Contemporary furnishings, big comfy bed, laid back yet helpful staff and great coffee makes this a great hotel.
It's a 20 minute tram journey to the centre, but the stop is only round the corner from the hotel and it's only one train stop form the airport, so that's also convenient.

On a business trip to A'dam this is a great choice. Unlike many other places I've stayed in the city, CitizenM is nice and quiet, with a good set of amenities that make a business traveler's life easy. The rooms are small and funky, but I liked that for a couple of nights. The lobby was busy with other travelers and check in/out was a breeze. Breakfast was reasonable and the large cup of strong coffee was a welcome change. One complaint - the clothes ironing station (tucked behind the door to housekeeping) was lousy. With all the cool things CitM is doing for guests, I would have expected a nice portable ironing station for cleaning up my business clothes. With a little creativity, that could change from a negative to a positive. For runners, some of the main paths around the city are right out the door - very nice for beating jetlag with a jog.

Room Tip: Garden view side room was very quiet

I brought my boyfriend to Amsterdam as a birthday surprise, i booked this hotel based on reviews from Tripadvisor and the reasonable price. I was not disappointed. We arrived at Zuid transtation and were surprised at how close we were to the hotel. As other travellers have mentioned there is self service check-in but the staff available to help you are probably the friendlist and most helpful we have ever come across.

The room is small, but contains everything you need in a funky atmosphere, the bed is AMAZING so huge and comfy and the free movies are a nice touch. There is also free Wifi throughout the hotel and free access to MAC Computers in the lobby. The hotel is stylishly designed with different areas to sit depending on your mood. The cafe bar is open 24/7! Not a great selection on food but enough for a snack.

After the hotel being such train journey from the airport and sort walk from the train station I wasn't holding out much hope that travel to the centre would be as quick or easy...I was very wrong. The number 5 tram leaves from literally outside the hotel, they are unbelieveably frequent and will have you at the museum / entertainment district in 10 mins and into central station in about 20. We got a 4 day tram pass for €19. There is a one, two and three day option on this as well and I would highly recommend them as you can get anywhere in the city by tram.

The only negative I would have (and it's not a huge thing) is that the room could be a little warmer. The temperature only goes up to 23 degrees and sometimes it just didn't seem that the air coming out was that warm and there is no option to turn it off!

All in all if your looking for something funky and different with amazing staff and easy transport to airport and centre of town I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel :)

Was slightly concerned to look at a map of the centre the night before we went and to find out was not on it. But actually was perfect, close to the airport, close to the train st when getting train from airport and right next to tram station to take you to museums in a few stops and the centre in a few more. Saw the lobby from outside and thought it was lovely then realised it was our hotel. The lobby is designed in a cool, relaxed way and we used it to relax and read and have a beer rather than dress up and pose like some more stuffy places we've stayed. The furniture and style was beyond the price of the rooms I would say. 24 hrdrinks and food available, healthy interesting options not just junk food. Free Internet in lobby but was very slow. Computer check in with friendly staff standing by. No problem to check in very early and were fine when we accidentally checked out a bit late. I liked the rooms but it was always really chilly in it and a banging noise started early morning on 2 days, hopefully just one off noise and not factory next door. Despite this am a convert, it's not 5 star but it's not 5 star prices and the compromise is only size not cleanliness or style. Would stay here again and have recommended it to others. Don't come with someone you're not really comfortable with though, the loo is in a pod but it's just frosted glass and it's in front of the bed, same applies to the shower!

All the things that are extra like wi-fi etc are free. Bedrooms are as good as it gets in a business hotel. The staff are better than some 5 star hotels I have stayed in
