citizenM urges its customers to "choose a hotel that gives you the maximum for the minimum" and it says that this "means great locations and great showers, big beds and big towels, free films and free Wifi...big expectations for not so big prices." We have just returned from a weekend stay at the Amsterdam City branch and it delivered on everything except the big towels (there was nothing at all wrong with the towels, but they were not noticeably bigger than the towels of most other hotels I have stayed in).

The location is excellent: about one minute from the tram which takes you to the Museumplein in 7 or 8 minutes and to the central station in 18 minutes, and there are good restaurants about 15 minutes walk away im Scheldeplein. The hotel is frequently and accurately described as "funky", but the funkiness does not get in the way of functionality and comfort. The rooms are very compact (not really suitable for the larger guest or those who have a lot of luggage), but very well designed, and the bed is bigger than you find in most hotel rooms. The computerised check in and check out works quickly and well, and the staff (called "ambassadors") are young, friendly, courteous, and very helpful.

One of my favourite features of the hotel was the free films and Wifi access. Many hotels rip off their customers (who are often paying hefty room rates as well) in these areas and citizenM is to be congratulated for leading where I hope many others will follow.

The citizenM concept is imaginative and innovative and deserves to succeed. During my next city break, I will certainly look for citizenM hotels first.

We loved this hotel, it is different than any other hotel we have stayed at. Although it is not in the center of town, it is very easy to get to. The service is excellent, the room is fun. The movie channels, internet service and telephone calls are all included in the price.

Very interesting room. The bed was the very best part as it was the largest that we slept in during our travels in Europe. Relatively simple to get into the downtown region and we were able to get a shuttle from the airport at 16 euros each. Overall a very fun experience and the bathroom is something that I will never forget!

Been to CitizenM in Glasgow and just had to try the one in Amsterdam for our trip. Not disappointed. Everything about CitizenM is great for a short stay from the easy check in to the funky style, great beds and showers and easy check out. (You will be disappointed if you want a huge room with lots of storage - don't say you haven't been warned!) The bar is open for food and drinks 24/7. Staff friendly and the location was a good surprise. We knew we were out of the city centre the but tram number 5 stops almost outside the door, use the stop at Prinses Irenestraat, you are in the centre in no time and seeing all the places en route gives you a good idea of the places you might want to visit. Also being that bit farther out it was lovely and quiet at night. Will be going again and next time will explore more of the immediate surrounding area, it looked good.

Room Tip: All the rooms have big double beds and great showers.

A very different hotel...young, hip and reasonably priced for Amsterdam. We enjoyed our stay thanks to the super friendly young staff and funky bedrooms. Having said that, it wasn't very comfortable to stay in the hotel room. Too cold (setting was max 23C, but was turned down at night), small and no place to walk around. The only option to enjoy the room was lying in the bed which was very comfortable and luxurious. The shower pod was great and efficient. The toilet pod...oh well!

Access to central Amsterdam takes 15-25min depending on the time of the day and is easy with tram no 5. I would recommend the hotel for a 2-3 night stay for active couples only.

We stayed at citizenM for a long weeked in May 2012, from start to finish it was great. Easy check in with the computer system and staff were on hand to assist if required. Once up to the room in 1 of 2 lifts available we were pleasently surprised to see that every floor and room was indeed identical - very cool. The room itself did not disappoint either - it was just like the pictures. As has been said dont book this room with anyone other than your better half as privacy really is at a premium. Fantastically massive and awesomely comfortable bed which takes up most of the end of the room. This has storage built into it for one or two cases, we had to laugh when we saw people turning up with 10 cases (probably still putting a bad review on here!!)

Great lounge with computers and designer furniture for everyone to use, nice food and great value cocktails 24hrs a day. Watched a free movie while waiting for my missus to get ready, Captain America, didnt set the world alight but passed the time. Adult movies are also free but hey this is Amsterdam after all.

Noise between rooms was limited to the occasional blind going up or down so try and remember to lower these before you leave for the evening as if you forget you will be naked in front of the world - dont forget where the toilet is and make sure to check out the picture near the lifts for examples of what can be seen through the open windows!!! ;-)

All in all a great experience due to the hotel itself and its excellent tram links to both the city and the train station. Tram number 5 gets you into the city in around 10mins and the train from Zuid gets you to the airport in around the same time. Travel passes can be purchased in the airports information office ( VVV ) and are highly recommended as cheap and easy travel results.

Room Tip: Any they are all the same!!!! Highest floor they have really as the views will be better and less p...
