There are two citizen M's in Amsterdam, we stayed at the one on prinses Irenestraat (not at the airport). The hotel is a quick 10 minute train ride from schiphol airport, which costs about 3.50 Euros each - get off at zuid station, and from there its only a short walk to citizen m.
We paid for early check-in (20 Euros) when we arrived, although its down to availability as to whether this is an option. Check - in is self serve, and you create your own key card to access your room.
The rooms are perfect for a short stay in Amsterdam, and you'll find a few nice quirks: a touchscreen pad controls mood lighting, blackout blind, TV, films on demand and temperature. Rooms are compact, and as others have mentioned the toilet/shower is 'in' the room, with little in the way of privacy - which is fine if you are in good company.
Staff were friendly but seemed a bit too relaxed when it came to dealing with the technical problems we had with our room: key cards not working, touchpad not working, room safe locked us out, day pass purchaed from reception for tram didn't work...after we chased the issues up a couple of times they were resolved though, and we were given a couple of free cocktails.
The hotel is in a quiet area (away from the stag and hen parties) but hop on the #5 tram, directly outside the hotel and you can get to most of the main attractions within minutes.
We were offered access to the hotels bikes - free - but as the weather wasn't very good, we didn't take them up on this.
Overall, its a good base to explore Amsterdam and convenient for tram/airport access. Don't get a taxi to the hotel/airport though - cost us 42 euros, get the train.
