“amazing break”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

Amazing hotel, definately an experience, the loo and shower are fun and totally random. Staff are very welcoming and polite. A checkin on foursquare will get you a free drink downstairs. All the movies you could want to chill in in the morning. And a little outside the bustling city easy to get to on a tram which was perfect for us.

The hotel is a few km out of town, which we were nervous about. However, transport links are EXCELLENT and about 30 seconds of a walk from hotel to tram stop.

The staff was young, vibrant and friendly. Their local knowledge was superb and they made good recommendations, as well as giving very clear instructions for trams, etc.

In general, the hotel had a great vibe - MUCH nicer than most of the city centre hotels for the same price or more. Room was fab - HUGE, comfy bed, fantastic pillows, good TV channels and the shower and toilet pods with changing lights were great fun.

The reason for the 'best for short trip' is because there's limited room to hang clothes and no ironing facility in the rooms. Other than that, perfect.

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!
