How I didn't already know about this chain I really don't know. It is SO 21st century; combines fabulous design (by Vitra) with efficient self check-in and out at computers in the lobby (with a human being nearby to help if needed) and 'pod-style' bedrooms.

I say not for everyone because, as other reviewers have said, as the loo and shower are in the middle of the room, pretty exposed, even with the glass screens closed, so unless you are very comfortable with your (travelling) partner, you probably wouldn't like it. But a lovely king size bed, very clean, has everything you need, even a teddy on the bed ... ahhhhh.

Bar, restaurant, lounges all open 24 hours a day, lovely design and lighting. The location of this hotel is great for the business district (banks, investment managers) in South Amsterdam, on a direct train from Schiphol. I will definitely be aiming to stay in others in their chain on other trips.

Initially on arriving we thought the hotel was great, hip, trendy, relaxed, with modern ideas.
Good location with easy access to trains and trams to airport and city.
Practically though, the rooms were too small & quite claustrophobic. And rather impersonal when dealing with the toiletry matters, and we have been together for 12years! Not sure how a new dating couple would get on!
Downstairs in the breakfast/bar/dining area, yes breakfast excellent and a good relaxed atmosphere, although I seem to notice the staff had to be really attentive as it became a bit chaotic serving drinks etc.
Lounging area great to sit back relax with free wifi, though, again I the bathroom entrances were very impersonal and rather confusing to get into!
Overall, not too bad.
Would I stay again? Only if single.

Have just got back from staying at the citizen m Amsterdam centre. For me it was ideally located, you could get the train to station zuid and from there it was a 5 minute walk to the hotel. The hotel itself is very modern and clean. There is free wifi and the staff are extremely helpful. There is a room to keep luggage if you have a later flight home. I really liked the room, and was ideal for a couple nights stay. The bed is huge and comfy and there were free movies to watch and radio. For getting to dam square and the museums you just have to catch the number 5 tram which is just outside the hotel. Would definitely recommend staying here

Outstanding modern hotel. Lovely relaxed atmosphere, superb staff, stylish light spacious communal areas. Immaculately clean. Rooms small but beds huge and everything you need, except maybe coffee making facilities in the room. Would recommend.

This is an excellent hotel, very styled and chic. The bedroom have a unique approach to conceptual space, with tubes standing in the centre of the room for showers and toilet. Very interesting and different!

Just back from a long weekend in Amsterdam, and so glad we chose to stay at Citizen M. Location is great, simply take the Train from Schiphol Airport to Amsterdam Zuid Station - Euro 2.50 each way - and the hotel is a simple 5 minute walk on a level surface for wheelie cases. Reception staff are friendly and welcoming but didn't really need any help with the easy self-service check-in. We chose a City View, but all rooms are identical and neither City nor Park side rooms have an advantage in terms of view, they are all pretty much a similar outlook. The room itself was superb. Great use of space, and not cramped at all. Everything was spotlessly clean and the quality of bedding and Towels was excellent. Remote control windows, lights, blinds etc were novel and having BBC TV and Radio was an added bonus. Breakfast was excellent - pay when booking for a discounted rate - with self service Breads, Danish Pastries, Ham, Cheese etc. plus Muesli, Yoghurt and fresh fruit. We also ate dinner in the canteen on 2 nights and it was also superb - Spicy Cashew Chicken with Noodles or Rice for euro 11.95 was especially good. Staff throughout, from Housekeeping to the Canteen/Bar were friendly and helpful. Lastly, getting to/from Amsterdam was a breeze. Number 5 Tram leaves every 7 minutes until just after Midnight from just outside the hotel and delivers you to Dam Square in around 20 minutes. All-in-all, we had a wonderful stay and would recommend Citizen M to anyone travelling to this great city.
