More about citizenM Amsterdam City

The best!

by TripAdvisor Member MLouiseW

We just stayed for one night, but we were really sorry that we had to go after that!
Wow, this whas the first time in our lives that we weren't dissapointed about anything. Everything you'll find on the website is true. The people are very nice, the check-in is easy and fast, the beds are amazing, the lobby is like a nice, large livingroom, there are people willing to prepare you a nice cocktail 24 hrs a day, the food is good and also available 24 hrs a day (wich is very good when you had some beers and don't feel like sleeping yet ;-) ).
Overall: next time we visit Amsterdam we will stay at the CitizenM again!

Retro Futuristic if that makes sense!!

by TripAdvisor Member JADMIX

I am not sure where to start.If you are over 35 you will probably remember Logans Run, it was a space like programme from the 70's (google it) anyway that and similar programmes is what comes to mind when I tried to explain this Hotel to friends & family,Imagine its 1950/60/70 and you have to describe what way people will live in the future 2525,you get all these images of people being transported (teleported) like in star trek,beam me up CitizenM,thats exactly how you will feel when you are in the shower or the toilet in this hotel.Everything about the place is very arty its like looking through a magazine (furniture,decor,lighting) some of it looks very 70's some of it looks futuristic its hard to pinpoint a period.even the carpet is a map of amsterdampretty cool.
when you get out of the lift and look down the corridor it will remind you of one of two things,either the cabin decks of a ship or one of the file storage buildings (except its for people)
anyway to the room imagine you have a shipping container (you know the ones at the docks) and inside that container you have to create a bedroom one end has to have the door (duh) the other end has a floor to ceiling,wall to wall window that you cant open,it does have blinds that operate via remote (will get to that remote in a minute) then in the rest of the space you have to create a Toilet,shower,wash basin,bed,bedside tables etc etc,well they managed to do it here,i would not recommend this hotel for anyone who has claustraphobia,so you go through thedoor and you are faced with two glass tubes that go from floor to ceiling,one is frosted glass(the toilet) but believe me the frosting leaves nothing to the imagination so not ideal to share a room here unless you are very familiar and comfortable with each other.the other is the shower which isnt frosted but there is a see through curtain between the shower and the bed.the design,though unusual is clever and makes maximum use of the limited space,the cubicles open like a revolving door (two halves),then there is a free standing sink and a mirror with lights,the bed takes up at least a third of the whole room,it is massive,it is also high off the floor for a bed (well at least by our standards) i am used to sitting on the side of the bed and my feet touching the floor (not so here) but having said that you wont need a ladder!!.bed and pillows were of the highest standard very very comfortable,there was also a reasonable sized flat screen tv on the wall ( I am guessing 42inch) which was controlled by "THE" remote,its a phillips touchscreen job and it controls the TV,venetian blinds,blackout screen and the lights.
ah the lights you can have any colour you like and I mean any colour and you can dim etc great for setting the mood (there are also preset moods to choose from) having said that we spent so much time trying to get the right shade that we just turned the bloody thing off after 10 mins of "is that it,is that it",so the room is small like i said its basically a shipping container size pre manufactured and brought to site and assembled like a set of building blocks,very unusual but very nice.check in was very handy youcan do it yourself as you walk in the door.there are about 8 computers with touch screens dedicated for this purpose (checking in / out) but there are staff there to help if your a bit the reception area(though there is no reception) there is a bar for beer and snakcs not too expensive,what you would expect to pay at any hotel really,not a great choice of beer,still not really a problem,we asked what time the bar closed the response was there will be someone about the place all night so whenever you want we will be here,thats the kind of response my missus likes!!.
There are some good plus' free internet in the "reception area" there were a few apple macs there with broadband for use (free) also wifi in the room (free) also movies (free) both scheduled and on demand, also a couple of adult movie channels (free) these can be disabled via the remote if there were kids staying in the room,though you wouldnt have more than 2 people to a room anyway so the kids would probably have their own room.staff were friendly and most had very good english,the area the hotel is in takes about 10 mins from the Dam (city centre) is like another world in comparison to the city centre,where there are thousands of people permanently moving about,outside the hotel it was very quite and clean (apart from some roadworks that are almost finished) Beatrix park is across the road its a beautiful tranquil place,the nearets shops would be a stop or two on the tram (number 5).the trams are clean and very regular and not expensive we bought a 3 day pass 15 euros each and that was good for the trams and buses.Main advice for tourist would be pay extra care when crossing any roads for cyclists and trams etc there cycle lanes everywhere and sometimes its hard to distinguish where the footpath stops and the cycle lane starts so be vigilant everywhere in amsterdam.overall we enjoyed my stay in CitizenM great location to relax easy to get too just the toilet was the thing for me (sorry could be just a hang up of mine) but somethings I dont like to share and that is one of them i could not sit on that toilet with someone else in the room,even though we have been together almost 30 years i still had to wait till i was on my own. that i am afraid would probably stop me staying there again but that would really be the only thing I could complain about,frosted is ok for a shower but a toilet?,oh i guess I could complain about the fire alarm going off at 6am or there abouts (twice) though not for long (apparently some "citizen" was smoking in their room) I found that out when I rang reception to inquire.
we were allowed an earlier check in (2 hours) and a later check out (2 hours) at no charge,which can only be good for business.overall it is an experience to stay here and i would recommend it to anyone,once.

Fantastic value for money

by TripAdvisor Member JCLON

I had heard about Citizen M as being a revolutionary concept. The rooms are built as bocks in a factory and brought on site and piled up... So I was so intrigued that I jumped on the opportunity to try this hotel. The rooms are compact but comfortable. It is a mix of posh amenities, such as King Size bed with very comfortable bedding, with a rain shower, funky audiovisual/lighting system, but yet with an "open plan" lay out that gives it a cheap hotel feel. Overall though, it was great value, we stayed there 3 nights, slept very well (even the AC is VERY quiet). I would definitely go back. But again, you have to be warned, walking in this room with the expectation that it is a 4 start would lead to instant disappointment.

Very modern and trendy with nice techonology and atmosphere.

by TripAdvisor Member joshHelsinki

This modern and new Hotel is very nice and perfectly located between Amsterdam city and Schiphol international airport. To city center you can easily get via tram number 5 and it takes about 10-15minutes. To airport by train from station Amsterdam south(Züid) less than 10min!!! Both stops less than 5minutes walk from your room.

Hotel inside very modern and well designed. Lobby ar is nice and self-check in works properly. Stuff was friendly and served nice. Rooms are nice with lightning in variety of colors. Shower and toilet located IN room by nice way..

All in all, it is really worth of money. Staying in new hotel, with reasonable price and good area of Amsterdam I can really recommend this one.


by TripAdvisor Member kcNpdx

Though it's a bit south of the main city center, it is easily to get to via a 5 minute train from the airport, then a short tram ride takes you right to the middle of Amsterdam. The rooms are compact but very functional, and the shower and toilet cubicles are awesome with their mood lighting. It was a great value, and the service was spectacular. I loved the self check-in/check out and the 24 hour cafe in the lobby. It was a great place to stay as a solo traveler, but if you are staying with others it'd be best if you are quite comfortable with them, as their isn't much in the way of privacy in the rooms.

Very Good If working at the WTC

by TripAdvisor Member vivaGlasgow

I commute from Glasgow to Amsterdam (stay Monday to Thursday) every week and work round the corner from the Citizem M. Over the past 20 weeks I have stayed in 16 different hotels none for more than 1 week as there is always issues, to far away, to noisey, dirty, rubbish service, some have been average but none have been Good or very good.

Great Location for WTC and takes 20mins on a Tram (costs about 1 Eur) to city centre.

I stayed at the CitizemM 4 weeks ago and have have stayed there every week since (except last week when it was full on Tuesday for some reason) but I have no plans to look anywhere else at the moment.

Rooms are good layout, Bar is great 2.50Eur for a beer (less than most hotels same as most bars) great range of cocktails as I know to well. But the staff as totally fantastic as the have to listen to my rambelings most night in the bar, internet access is supereb very quick, they have VIOP phones in your room so Skype like calling rates (1p a min) or something really cheap.

My only 2 compaints are

1. they only do small beers (no pint glasses) time the staff have given me one I am asking for another :)

2. They have Free Movie channels that include 2 free porn channels, this totally shocked me, shocked as it took me 2 weeks to notice them and I could have been watching them from day 1 :)

It has been years since I have enjoyed a hotel so much!

by TripAdvisor Member MarinelaGR

The concept of Citizen M is so convinient and enjoyable! The beds are so comfy I could sleep for hours. The free movies on demand, WiFi and TV games a very pleasant surprise. The great design a pleasure to be around. But above all, being able to control everything in your room (with a touch pad remote) and set the atmospere you want at any time is remarkable!
It is fair to mention that location is not the biggest asset of the hotel when it comes to Amsterdam city centre and parking is a challenging and expensive act.
But everything else compesates so well!
Hope to see more of Citizen M to other countries soon!

next time in Amsterdam indulge yourself, stay @ Citizen M

by TripAdvisor Member photographer-guy

2x6 meters room with 2x2 meters bed and two glass towers -- one is a toilet, another one is a shower. If you're shy or traveling with someone who never saw you naked (and you'd like it to stay that way), you might want to consider another place. Otherwise -- it was so beyond our expectations, I couldn't even start describing. Just go there, and experience it yourself. Then come here and say thanks for the advise (you will want to).

Maybe I'm not hip enough

by TripAdvisor Member Thejoyisinthejourney

First let me say that they had the best linens in Europe. And it was opening week. However, that doesn't change the design flaws. As you must stand on the disk for the waterboarding shower to function you can't pre-heat the water. I tried to outsmart the thing by starting with the handheld and having it spray the shower wall and FLOODED the room. Oops. There is no night light setting and let's face it nobody has one of those WC's at home and you are trying to avoid waking up your sleeping partner...
The CanteenM is terribly overpriced. The food isn't bad and it's open 24/7 which in Amsterdam is a huge plus. Stop at the AH in the train station and dine in your room.
The tri-voltage outlets are a great idea, the ones in our room did not work. Regardless of voltage. And the elevators are slow - no service elevator for the maids.
The room keys are cool souvenirs and I can say I am a Mobile Citizen of the World.

I'm too sexy...

by TripAdvisor Member Karlandopooh

The hotel is just that, my colleague booked the hotel which wasn't close to being the most expensive, however it was real good I mean this is the first time i've felt impressed enough to take the time to write a review on a hotel! If it had a gym and a pool, for me, it would probably be the best hotel for business in the world. Fab room, gr8 bed, excellent atmosphere, ok a little arty for a conservative type like me but you quickly fall for it - you just can't help it...

From Eindhoven airport to Amsterdam

by crmartins

Hi everybody!

How is the best way to go from Eindhoven Airport to Amsterdam? There's a airport bus that passes only twice a week. On wednesdays they leave ate 16:30 and that's exactly the time my plna lands....



Re: From Eindhoven airport to Amsterdam

by leics

Pity about the airport express bus, but not to worry.

Get bus 401 to Eindhoven station then train to Amsterdam.

Train times, details and fares in English here;

Trains are roughly half-hourly, journey takes about 1h 20m with no changes, one-way fare 17.70 euro.

Re: From Eindhoven airport to Amsterdam

Thanks Leics!!!

Re: From Eindhoven airport to Amsterdam

No probs...enjoy! :-)

Re: From Eindhoven airport to Amsterdam

by crmartins

And... do you think that's easier to go from eindhoven thant from Dusseldorf-weeze?

Re: From Eindhoven airport to Amsterdam

by leics

Check the Dusseldorf-Weeze access here:

Bus info here:

and train times, details, fares here:

It's a much longer train journey from Weeze>Amsterdam, around 4 hours with changes and from 40 euro one-way.

Train from Eindhoven is cheaper than bus from Weeze (31 euro). I'd fly to Eindhoven if airfares are similar, I think.
