“Very good, but different”
Reviewed 15 November 2011

This was a great place to stay, but definitely a little different. The tram stops right outside the door, so it's easy to get anywhere. The rooms are nice, but the shower is kind of annoying to use. Also, there is very little privacy in the rooms, so don't stay there with anyone you are not completely comfortable with. Overall, good value in Amsterdam.

Just had a lovely 3 night stay in this cool hotel. I couldnt find any faults with it. Its perfect for a short break. Its a 2 minute walk from Zuid train station which is only 5 minutes from airport. ( 1st stop) . The tram ( line 5 ) stops outside the door . Its only 10 or 15 minutes into Dam Square. Ideal.
Checking in and out was quick and easy. Staff in the hotel were friendly and helpful.
The room maybe small but its very cool and well designed. The bed is massive and so comfortable. I dont see why people complain about the toilet and shower . there is a massive curtain you can draw across the room which seperates them from the bed and chair. There are loads of free movies on the tv and free wi-fi. You cant ask for more really. Il be back for sure and il check them out in other citys aswell.

The bar serves 24 hours.

Great hotel.

Perfect for 3 or 4 day breaks . Ideal for couples

This hotel is very innovative because it offers a no nonsense approach to traveling. It is the perfect hotel to visit Amsterdam because tram 5 ( that goes straight to the town center) is just steps away from the entrance. The staff is always very friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean.
The big bed is heavenly and the shower is illuminated. It made me look forward to returning to the hotel every night. What more can you ask for ?

If you like modern and contemporary than this hotel is right for you. I stayed here with my boyfriend for a 3 night stay. Our first impressions were that the hotel was indeed very 'trendy' but also so much so that its not a very 'homely' hotel. Dont get me wrong the bed is amazing (2 metres x 2 metres) but features such as a roller door for your toilet leaves little to the imagination for your roommate! As does the shower as the room is completely open...and actually quite small! Its features such as these that give it a European feel. This is not a hotel I would usually chose but for a 3 night stay it was fine, somewhere to rest your head thats clean. The location is a little OFF the beaten track as you need to take a tram to the centre of Amsterdam which costs E2.10 each one way. A taxi will set you back 25 euros from the hotel to Central Station/Dam Square. The hotels free movies and wifi is fantastic - big plus. I think what this hotel has given me is a sense of the type of hotel that I like. I now know that modern and contemporary is not for me.

Room Tip: Be aware that there are TWO Citizen M hotels in Amsterdam - neither of which are in the centre of th...

The CitizenM is very trendy and modern. You will do your own check-in at a computers (6of them are foreseen for the customers to check in.) The rooms are very limited in square meters but everything is divided very practical. Not an inch is a lost inch! The toilet and the shower are part of the room but can be closed by glass doors. So no privacy if you visit this hotel with "just a friend" ;-). Everything in the room is controled by a moodpad, the light, the music, the television, the temperature,.... What I do find a negative point about all this electronics is the following: we set the alarm at 7:00. There wasn't really an alarm, in stead all the lights went on all together which isn't waking up pleasantly. Breakfast was good but not extensive. If you go to this hotel be prepared there is a young and fresh vibe. You are either pro or con...

I have stayed in Citzen M in Glasgow Scotland before and knew that this would be just as ideal as the glasgow hotel.
The staff are polite and is very near to train station Zuid which is six minutes from Schipol airport . The rooms are lovely and very clean everything you need except a kettle..if you like a regular brew get yourself a mini kettle before you go as they cost an arm and a leg in the canteen! Great space in the lobby to chill out..watch tele and just kick back! computers there but poor connection. The tele in the room is fab...so many up to date films for all! The COMFIEST BED EVER! in my own right now after 5 nights in Citizen M amsterdam and truly saddened! The rooms are small but everything you need is there...very modern and clean!

To get to the city centre is a bit ANOYING its about 15-20 minutes and costs 2.50 euros for an hour pass and 7 euros for a 24 hour pass. I MUST WORN ABOUT THE PICK POCKETS!!! i got my purse stolen on the second day whilst being on the number 5 tram(which is the connection from the hotel to the city centre)..i was completely oblivious! and the next day we saw some guy scanning everyone to see who would be an easy target! BE WORNED!
I would recommend this hotel to anyone, would go back without a doubt.

trying to be uber trendy, shoebox rooms, all looking a bit tired now.
No bin in the room, no privacy either, and the room can be chilly.

Staff are really nice though and the bed is comfy.

Room Tip: All the rooms are the same. Be warned -there is nothing king sized about the size of the room,
