Seriously, the bed IS fantastic!! LOVE the bed. Best sleep ever, which was sorely needed for those long days and nights out in Amsterdam.

Very cool hotel experience with the cool pod like rooms with the pod shower and the pod toilet - all of which, very clean. Also watched a bunch of free movies from a pretty extensive list of movies late at night. Huge selection of tv channels (english or otherwise). Moodpad was kind of fun to play around, with the color lights, but the idea gets old pretty quickly. Still, it does the job of being able to control everything in the room pretty much from one control. Free wifi in the rooms, as well as the free computers in the lobby when I needed to print things out. Staff was helpful but not in your face, and the lobby has all sorts of cool designer chairs and furniture and a lot of designer books should you ever get bored in Amsterdam (which is doubtful, but just in case, I guess!)

Location is a bit further away, but very easy access to the tram or the bus or the metro (or if you rent a bike, you could bike it). But also good, because it's pretty quiet as well.

For the price it's pretty great compared with some other hotels in Amsterdam that may be closer to the city centre, but would be much smaller. And nothing beats that huge bed.

All in all, exactly what it appears to be - a very cool designy looking hotel. So, not for those who are looking for a homey personal hotel experience, because it is rather impersonal, but a great comfortable hotel otherwise.

One con: the Moodpad seems to need constant recharging. I leave it out for 10 minutes, it already is a little low on battery and has trouble connecting to the room, so I need to return it to the dock to use it. Quite annoying when you're using it as a remote for the TV and having to use it from the dock.

I don't know what to say rather than "wow" for Citizen M Hotel... It's stylish, compact, trendy and definitely a top value... You may enjoy your room in which lights change according to your activity or theme, taste great food ranging from croissant to sushi at cafe zone, relax at stylish sofas by reading design mags or get informed about the city by using Mac Computers without a charge. I'd definitely recommend it to couples, the ones travelling with friends & solo travellers. The only thing that would be better is that it could be closer to city...but you may reach to the hotel via Tram no:5 anytime from the city center...so overall two thumbs up! :)

When I first walked into my room I though Yiikes this is compact. I quickly got used to the size however, and the creature comforts are all there. The "moonpad" which controls all the features of your room from blinds to temperature to mood lighting is in itself an amazing feature.

This is not a room to camp out in and read books, but it is still most relaxing, with a massive 2 meter square bed. The pillows are great too. the staff are all young and enthusiastic, and the canteen serves whatever you want 24/7.

I suspect this type of hotel will become more normal in the future. We are running out of space and as ostentation becomes less chic these comfortable pod hotels will be the way to go.

My only negative is that I would not bring young kids here if you are sensitve to sensuality -- there are many suggestive nude pictures about the hotel, and the adult tv channels (free, like most everything else!) must be proactively suppressed. I would also say the for the elderly and physically challenged the beds might be a bit high, and difficult to approach.

FOr everyone else, have fun. It is perfect, good value, good service, and fun!

CitizenM hotel is a great hotel for travelers who want luxury in a good price.
The staff was very kind and helpful especially in an incident that we had with our check-in [Eva thank u so much we were very lucky to meet you!!]. Every day we had new clean towels, soap and the bed was made. The room was very nice and stylish, great for a young couple and left us with the best memories.The location was a little bit far by foot but the public transportation was really great even in the late hours and the area is safe and clean. Only 2 minutes away from the tram and bus station!!

Interesting and different experience in the affordable alternative for expensive hotels.
Worth a visit!

Well thought concepts and clever marketing. Mid-range pricing =screening out trouble-makers. Location is alright. Tick all Kotler's 4Ps boxes

I like the sense of humour of this hotel from its website, quotation on the doors and even the finish touch on the invoice "because you're not the Queen of England,
our rooms don't cost a fortune (if you are the Queen, you're welcome too)"

Love the massive comfy Bed with power rain shower in the middle of the room.
The bed is bigger than 2X2m. There is also a blind that block all the light for a long sleep. After the stay, I've got an email from them saying "If your own bed now feels a little small compared to the one in your citizenM room, we wish to offer our sincere apologies." haha

We enjoyed using Phillips moodpad from the blinds to the lights, shower and TV. Free Movies on-demand are excellent! We watched Up in The Air and It's Complicated there so they are very recent for DVDs.

Because it's in business area (WTC) There are not many restaurants around the hotel especially after 8pm or weekends (Albert Heijin to Go and restaurants around there are closed on weekends). Only Burger King at the Amsterdam Zuid station or some food e.g. Sushi, Salad at the hotel.

Would recommend to a friend who wants to stay for a few nights but they need to set the right expectation of this hotel. And the fact that it's not in the heart of Amsterdam. The 20 mins journey to the central station wasn't too bad. Plus you get to see other part of Amsterdam.

All in all enjoyable experience and I would love to see this kind of hotel in other cities.
