I really liked this hotel. Friendly staff, cool interior design, details all around for you to discover. Also, location is very convenient only a few blocks away from a tram station. Only comment is that my room was really small (bathroom incorporated into room). Not much privacy if you are not going with your partner.

Stayed: May 2012, travelled with family

Probably the best hotel I have ever stayed in! Others have been more expensive, with more luxuries, and more convinently located, but the design, atmosphere and in this hotel makes it stand out above them all.

We had a choice of the city view or the garden view room when we checked in...and I belive all the rooms are otherwise identical. The rooms are small but well laid out, the beds are HUGE. Rooms are completly controlled (TV, A/C, Blinds, Lighting) with the touch screen remote control. I found the alarm setting to be a little unreliable, so make sure you set an additional alarm on your phone or watch just in case - the hotel also advises this on the room guide).

Breakfast and Bar is available 24-7. I'm not usually one for hotel bars, but this was the perfect way to wind down after an evening out (amazing cocktails and cool selection of beers, tea, hot food and sushi). Charge everything to your room using your key card and pay when you leave.

iMacs and designer furnature in the lobby/lounge area, FREE Wi-Fi thoughout the building, more hotels need this!

The staff were all fantastic and made us feel at home straight away.
The location is rather chilled out, close to Zuid train station (10 mins train from Schiphol Airport). About a 15-20 minute cycle to the city centre. Tram stop is just outside for the non cyclists out there, but cycling is THE way to experience Amsterdam.

Room Tip: All rooms apparently identical - you get the choice of City or Garden view if available.

CitizenM Amsterdam City is innovatively designed and the rooms are very stylish and comfortable as long as you are clear on the caveat around privacy (or lack thereof) but this is very well documented on the website and other reviews. The staff are very warm and friendly and in fact and present and helpful, more so that other 'design' hotels in my experience. You do have to be clear that you are very much out of the action though. There is a very easily accessible tram link that connects to the centre in about 15 minutes, however if you plan on going out for late nights this can prove an extra expense as taxis are not cheap in Amsterdam.

Stayed for 1 night and met expectations. Room is basically a box with space used efficiently (big comfy bed covers whole width of room). Shower and toilet in cylinder shaped pods in the room. I didn't sample the bar or breakfast but when you stay here you feel like you're a cool cat because you check-in by yourself, get mood lighting, free movies and control everything from a remote in your room. I imagine if I stayed longer this cool feeling would wear off quickly. But for a couple of nights, concept works well. Location slightly outside centre but good transport connections. Would stay here again

The citizenM in Amsterdam was well situated within easy access both to city and airport. With the Tram stop just around the corner and ticket bought onboard it was just a short trip to te centre.
Also just out the door to the right was the bus and train stop with direct links to the airport. Bus 310 and 4 € later it was easy to get to the airport.
Stayed at the cittyzenM Airport which is just a small walk from the bus stop as well.
The hotel was easy with all need for. Staff was very friendly, food was enough but if ypu are looking for a good dinner, try out some of the city staurants. I have stayed at the hotel in Glasgow as well and enjoy it for a shorter periods. the price are good, hotel are clean and easy accessed.

Room Tip: Rooms are generally the same but if possible, get one higher up with posssible to enjoy some views.

We stayed two nights after a cruise and really enjoyed this hotel. Close to the tram, very modern with Mac computers in the lobby and remote controlled mood lighting. Very small rooms with the toilet and shower actually in the room (separated by a frosted glass door) so make sure you are comfortable with whomever you are sharing the room. Food is costly in the hotel, but they do have lockers for keeping your luggage before check-in time.
