Historical Traveller Reviews of Citizen M Schiphol Hotel

from socprof
This place is amazing although for some people it wouldn't work. It will meet all your basic needs and do so both comfortably and very stylishly. It's such a cool space and I loved staying there. However, it's not for everyone. The bathroom is not very private and there is only minimal space in which to get around and only a small space for hanging clothes. I can see that some people wouldn't appreciate the emphasis on design and function.

Citizenm: Fantastic experience!!

from KaysAmsterdam
What I liked the most about staying at Citizenm was the amazing bed! What a fantastic room it was.
The canteenM had some tasty dishes and the lounge had a living room vibe. Very comfortable. We watched a EK match, had dinner, had a few drinks and went to sleep. Laid back.
The breakfast was very good as wel! tasty vienoisery and delicious coffees.
I am e frequent traveler and this really is the kind of hotel I would like to see in every city!

Great cocktails

from JuistJa
Got the opportunity to go to Schiphol's citizenM for test-sleeping before the 'grand opening' in June. We've been to many hotels with practically any numbers of stars, but the heart almost never pumped any faster. Now it did, five minutes after arriving by train at Schiphol when receiving our first Mobile Martini cocktail. Then, an unwanted gap between the first and second was necessary, because we had to be able to criticise our stay. Ok, self-check-in; smooth and fast, dinner; (only) prepackaged food and beverages, good quality and fresh, but we like a real kitchen more, room; wow!, very small and very nice, this is the secret why the hotel offers 250 rooms in such relatively small building, it works perfect, living-rooms; each has its own typical design, some we liked, some not, great were the hundreds of (fashion, design and reading) books that completed the living-rooms, bar; friendly staff, worked their pants off because of the triangle 'test-sleeping-for free-Dutch'...

The price? Well, if you book early, 35 euro's per person (room occupied by two) is almost a 12-bed-hostel-room price these days. Food and beverages are not especially cheap, but if it is too much for you, walk 2 minutes, take the train to the centre of Amsterdam for 7 minutes, take a tram for 10 minutes a little off the centre and you can eat a little more per euro.

Enough said, good luck at citizenM and enjoy Amsterdam

Really cool!

from Bartel_Hulst
This hotel is great when you travel with a group of friends, because they have super relaxed "living rooms" in the lobby where you can enjoy your drinks and food in a trendy design setting.

Compared to CitizenM most hotels are rather oldfashioned and dull...

Phantastic Concept and Value

from Arrau
I had the privilege of being the first "real" guest of the hotel when I walked in because of its proximity to the airport while they were still in their test phase. The hotel is very inexpensive as Amsterdam airport hotels go, and yet it is an easy 100m covered walk to the terminal while many other hotels have only bus service. The concept is fantastic: very quiet, a very comfortable and luxurious bed, very nice shower and appliances, ridiculously low international phone charges, free Wifi and movies. What makes the price possible is the clever utilization of the most modern appliances and tricks to fit everything that needs to be there in a very compact space, resulting in a small but fully functional and even luxurious room of a rather futuristic but cheerful and pleasing design. The hotel also has a small restaurant / canteen focusing on sushi, wraps and other healthy fare that gets you a good meal quickly. In my opinion a real winner.

What a great hotel, for a low price!

from pro-gron
We stayed for one night as a "test-sleeper".

What a great looking hotel! The lobby is looking like some living rooms, with design furniture, big screen plasma televisions and comfortable seats.

The rooms are small (2x7 meter), but large enough for a pleasant stay. The bed is very large (2x2m) and comfortable. Everything in the room works trough the Philips Moodpad. You can set the temperature, open and close the curtains, set the lights (in lots of colours), set a wake up call, use the TV (with free movies on demand) and use the radio with this Moodpad.

There is a large shower (with hand- and rainshower), toilet and sink in the room. Allso here, everything looks great.

There is a large CanteenM, where you can get lots of food and drinks. This also looks very good and the food and drinks tastes great.

The people who work in the hotel are very helpful. The come from lots of countries and all speak good English (some speak Dutch, or other languages too).

This is a great hotel for a perfect price!

CitizenM will amaze you!

from RosieAmsterdam
CitizenM offers you the most relaxed stay ever. It's almost a waste to take the train and go to Amsterdam.
You'd rather stay in the hotel to enjoy a Vesper Martini, some sushi and watch a movie.
CitizenM thought of everything. AM / PM showergel, cosi mood lights, kingsize beds, rainshowers, need I go on...

s dream

from duellema
We just got back from Amsterdam to visit a friend - and specifically to stay in this hotel. I love beautiful design and wanted to visit as soon as I heard about it. I was happily surprised how much attention has been spent on each and every detail.

It is quite new - both in concept and build. It's an upscale pre-fab design that is compact yet efficient, beautiful, and best of all affordable.

Concerns of mine were getting to inner city Amsterdam since it is near the airport, however there is a direct train that takes 15 minutes and costs about 7 euros for 2 adults. It was not a problem traveling back and forth. I would gladly do so again.

Getting to the hotel is easy - there is a covered walk way leading to the hotel. (If you arrive late like we did walk to the right out of the front of the airport and you'll soon see it).

The builders and designers went all out with the Eames chairs in the lobby, Vitra design elements, apple computers, design books lining the shelves, and the self check in (and cute / functional room keys that double as luggage tag when you've finished your stay) are wonderful.

Best of all are the rooms. We had a view overlooking the runway of the airport, which was unique. Even being so close there was absolutely no problem with noise. There were two types of blinds. Make sure you close the thicker one if you don't want to get woken up by the sun in the morning.

Another nice benefit is that the movies in the rooms are free with tons of variety. There were also many English speaking channels.

The personalization of the rooms is very special. You can adjust the temperature (Yes - even cool air conditioning which is a rarity!), mood lighting, music, etc. with a Philips computer that works similarly to an ipod touch. My husband is already telling me we need to have one ourselves.

The beds are enormous and very comfortable. I loved that they don't have awful flat European style pillows. It was a perfect place to relax and we really looked forward to coming back at the end of each day.

As for the 'bathroom' the pod doors slide closed and there is also a curtain to close if you need more privacy. Make sure the shower doors are closed completely or the shower will not function. It has both a rain overhead and hand held shower. Be cautious of where you put things like a razor - mine fell on the side of the circle plate where the water drains, although I could get it out.

This hotel is sexy, sophisticated, and very design oriented. I'm already looking forward to hearing where the next one will be built.

Design aficionados - this is highly recommended!


from bergo
As I have stayed in many airport-hotels and had the opportunity to take a look at this hotel before it officially opens, I was 200% impressed.

The entrance is magnificent, you check in with a computer and than you are able to go to your room. The lobby is full of design furniture which really fits the style and an awesome bar where you can buy coffee's and cocktails. I have just tried an cappucino and it is not one of these machine-regulated-powder-coffee but a good coffee made by an educated barista. Also at the bar you can buy healthy food like sushi, salads and wraps. Besides that there are cool gadgets like foot cream, eye masks etc.

Personally I like a room to be bright since it is usually no that much fun to stay in a hotelroom by yourself. I have not slept in the room but only took a look at it, just to be clear. The rooms are small but everything is equipped with more than you need. The bed is soft, big and clean with good pillows and nice mattrass. Than you have a cool remote control with lcd screen which gives you the opportunity to set moodlights in your room and to open and close the curtains (love it!). The power-shower looks extremely comfortable and the AM and PM shampoo is something, which shows again that everything has been perfectly thought about in detail.

I absolutely recommend this hotel in the Schiphol area since the Sheraton and Hilton across from this hotel are absolutely not worth their money compared with this hotel. The Hilton their standard rooms are as big as the CitizenM rooms and the Sheraton has outdated rooms with outdated service.

viva la CitizenM!

Top Local Tips for Amsterdam

Alkmaar Alkmaar is north of Amsterdam and not too far....beautiful town. Make the time to see it! Great shopping too...

Places you most go in Amsterdam! Ana Frank House, Van Gogh Museum, tour in boat and of course Red Light District!!!

Super place to visit even for a few hours If you're going to Europe, it's a great place to connect. Stay at the airport because you can take the train, 20 min and leave your bags checked at the hotel.
