Myself and partner stayed at the CitizenM for a long weekend in 2011 and we loved it!
Whilst I can see why it might not be everyone’s cup of tea, personally I loved the modern design of the hotel. It’s unique and it’s breaking the mold of conventional hotel accommodation and that is something which should be applauded.
The rooms are small but well equipped with everything you need. The bed is huge and comfortable and the in-room entertainment is outstanding (free movies, music etc). The shower and toilet cubicles in the middle of the room may be a step to far for some, but it worked for us. Within the hotel reception there are a number of computers which offer free internet and there is a ‘café’ type area offering a range of drinks and snacks – 24 hours a day if I’m not mistaken.
It's true that this hotel isn't located in the centre of Amsterdam but don't let this put you off. The location of the hotel is superb, just 5 minutes from Amsterdam Zuid train station (which has a direct train to the airport) and less than 5 minutes from the train #5 stop, that takes you to the City downtown passing through various tourist attractions like Van Gogh Museum.More
