After making a booking error in a very expensive hotel in Rotterdam we needed a cheap place to rest our heads for the final night of our trip to the Netherlands. Booking.com showed us this hotel was 69euros for a night and it had 91% review score so we clicked onto their website to see the rooms. We signed up to become a citizen and got the room for 59euros.
Basically its a very simple idea - all bedrooms are the same (small but not too small) and are for sleeping and washing in - everything else is done in the "living spaces". Their is a well stocked bar area and food available 24/7. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Check-in/out was all done yourself on the computers at the top of the lifts and literally couldn't have been easier.... they even leave pens around for you to pinch and do their advertising for them!
Everywhere was spotless and very modern and a great atmosphere.
When we checked in we got a little reciept for two free drinks so we went over to the bar and being English were just expecting soft drinks or coffee but no - ANY drink you could pick - so we had cocktails! They were great, really tasty and made right in front of us. The bar staff were very nice and friendly.
The room was all controlled by a tablet - the TV, curtains, blinds, lighting - everything! My favourite was the "mood lighting". The bed was massive and really comfy and the view over the cobbled square was lovely.
We would definitely return to CitizenM hotels over the world as the concept is brilliant.
