“Original hotel, great service, near to the RAI”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

I've been in Amsterdam this week-end for a seminar in the RAI. It's 10 minutes by feet. (you just have to go throught a park and late at night I felt not so safe). Anyway the hotel is very nice. The atmosphere is super. And the people who are working there are very very veeeeery helpful and kind.
When you enter the room, it's surprising because you enter in the bathroom and it's just separate with a curtain from the bed. The bed is very big and very confortable.
The food is also great !

I recomand this hotel. And I'll go back there !

great place, no nonsense service, perfect for visiting RAI and 20 minutes walk from the metro - train station.
The hotel uses Amsterdam VIP taxis which come quickly even in rush hours. xxxxxxxxmxmxmxmxmxmxmñdjkcñasdjvajvbasjdbcñkjdbñkdjBCñdkjcbñkjCBñkjdcñdjCñdchñdhjkcñlkjdchñdhcañHCÑlkhcñalkHCñlakdchñlAKCHñlakcñlkHCñlkchñlkaCñlkcñlakCÑlkacñlkchñlakHCÑlkcñlkCÑlkshcñlkasHCÑlkacñlkasHCñalkchñkCH

I took my girlfriend to Amsterdam for her 21st for 5 days and chose this hotel for it's modern aesthetic appeal and reasonable price compared to some other Hotels I considered. With this in mind I certainly felt that I received value for my money in a modern, clean and slightly novel room. We went with a King room and the 'King' aspect was certainly evident when we entered the room.

Although there is not much in the way of storage, you certainly get a superb bed with a choice of pillow firmness, excellent rainfall shower with mood lighting and all of your national movie, TV and radio stations on demand via the room's media hub. For example we could get BBC Radio 1 or current DVD release film titles (films that only came out a year ago) on demand and no extra cost. In addition to the media hub and mood lighting, we also had electronic blinds. Due to the multitude of modern facilities I did not mind living out of my suitcase during the stay. In some ways I believe Citizen M offered us a unique room with a hint of quirkiness. I did not mind that the room was quite 'boxy' or small as its design allowed for the feeling of a light and open space.

The staff are extremely helpful and greet you as you come and go from the lobby. We were very grateful for the accurate advice given regarding local transport. The Wifi in the hotel has a strong signal all over and only takes two seconds to register to - this was a massive plus for researching attractions and updating maps on our phones.

We had absolutely no problems with noise so the walls must be up to Parr. In addition to this the hotel is situated literally two minutes walk from the closest tram stop where you can get the number 5 towards Centraal Station - this tram will take you straight through the heart of the city and past any stop worth mentioning. The tram takes a maximum of 15 minutes and is very regular. The area that the hotel was situated felt safe as it was only a stone's throw from the financial district where the RAI and WTC buildings reside. To that end It has excellent links to Schipol Airport.

One last thing - do try the cocktails at the hotel bar as the staff have been well trained and made me and my girlfriend a very tasty Mobile Martini! We really appreciated this cocktail as it was courtesy of the Hotel manager due to the special occasion. This proves that Citizen M will do everything they can to make your stay pleasant and memorable.

Room Tip: The bed in the King room is excellent

very small rooms and not enough space. Better to stay at "I am" rather then city center as commuting is not that difficult from city center to schiphol. Breakfast too was not very good and you may have to manage with limited options. Would prefer to stay somewhere else than this place

Positive: walking distance from RAI exhibition center, very friendly staff, good pastries, ok breakfast.
Negative: the design: you love it or you hate it. I hated it: no cupboard to store your stuff, this is ridiculous. The way the bathroom and the toilet are arranged is extremely unpractical.
They don't really offer a proper restaurant, it's part of their concept but it is clearly also to reduce their operating expenses. Same for check-in and check out. It's clearly designed for you to stay one night or two. Not really cheap for the level of comfort.
The breakfast is really minimum and is overpriced for what it is.

Room Tip: Be away from the elevator.

This hotel ticked all the boxes for me and my girlfriend this weekend as we enjoyed a city break to Amsterdam. On top of the quirky, amusing lounges on the ground floor that mixes business and pleasure seemlessly, the service from the friendly and cheery staff was second to none. They truly could not do enough to make our stay as perfect as possible (one of the staff even lent me his mobile phone charger for the evening as I had forgotten mine!).

The rooms are an experience in themselves and the rain shower makes you want to stand there for days...stick in the mood lighting and the glass tube you are standing in and it really is like no other bathroom set up you'll ever have seen. The bed is massive and perfect after a long day taking in the wonders of this extraordinary city. The flat screen tv is mounted on the wall directly above the bed, and all movies are free! Each room also has a remote control that controls everything...literally! The tv, lights, blinds, temperature...you name it, its all controlled by a remote control.

Location was superb, with the no5 tram line dropping you off and picking you up just outside the hotel. It takes about 20 minutes by tram from the hotel to Amsterdam Centraal and trams are every 7 minutes or so. If the 20 min tram trip is too long, you can always get off half way at Leidesplein for a drink or a meal, there is even an open air ice rink at this time of year...complete with a hot waffle stand! Simply jump back on the tram for another 10 mins when you have had your fill.

This hotel really did help to make our trip special! As you can probably tell, I would highly recommend! I will certainly be back!!
