Citizen m is not for me. I found it pretentious, amateurish and over- ppriced. The staff are all youngsters in t-shirts and baseball boots. The breakfast was terrible and eaten at high stools to loud techno music. Check-in and check-out are done on computers and you have to pay an extra fee to use a credit card - the only time I have ever been asked to do this in a hotel. The room was uncomfortable with the bed filling the window end and the shower, lavatory and wash-basin (the size of a coffee cup) in the room with you. There was the feel of the 1960s cult tv programme, The Prisoner, about it.
The hotel is nice, warm and very well located beside the tram line to town. I was worried it was a little far out but with the tram across the street you're only about 10minutes from centraal.
There is no privacy really in the bedrooms - the way the shower and toilet are you would really want to be very comfortable with who you're travelling with!
Ideal place for the young couple with the habit of being always online
I picked the place as it was close to the conference I had to attend. I definetely enjoyed my stay. Appreciated the quality of the bed, bedlinen, even shower gel was very good, which is not typical for hotels at all. Hotel is very stylish. You can get a snack and a drink any time of the day and night. Staff was very professional and easy going. Definetelly a yes.
I understand that the hotel is not for all the types of travellers. You are not supposed to spend a lot of time inside the room, just change, have a shower, sleep or relax and watch tv. For that purpose rooms is suited perfectly. If you want to work or spend more time in the room, you have to go downstairs. It is really the hotel for the young type of travellers. What distrubed me a bit was the temperature in the room and a bit of noise at night. Nothing dramatic though.
Staying at the hotel was an experience of its own. Amsterdam is great, but I found myself wanting to come back to the hotel to explore all the cool amenities.
While the tram is conveniently close, it is a pain to go to and from the city center because it's a 20 minute journey of its own.
I liked the unique design, mood lighting, and automation of the bedrooms. The canteen and lobby are a great idea and are very comfortable. Most of the staff were fantastic.
There are parking issues, especially on weekends. Most parking metres operate on prepaid cards and the closest cash metre was 3 blocks away and only accepted coins, which at over €21 was a lot of change. One lady at hotel refused to make change for me and forced me to go into the shops several blocked away and told me it's not their problem.
staff was very accommodating. : internet access; the snack area
I asked for 2 beds and did not know the rooms only had one bed; the shower leaked all over the room; the sink drained slowly; I did not like the bathroom and shower open to the room. No desk; no place to put your luggage; no desk; no place to watch TV unless you sat on the bed
Ideal for design lovers. I have particularly appreciated to spend time in the different areas of the lobby where you can feel to be like at home. Downtown can be easly reached with bus n. 5.
Older people might find difficulties in dealing with such a technological hotel.
CitizenM is a quite stylish place to stay in Amsterdam. Downtown is easy to reach taking the tram. The entertainment system and the large bed add a great value to the comfortable atmosphere in the room.
A big bed and a see-through shower
The shower leaked, it was no great problem however
