QusieH wrote a review Feb 2020
London, United Kingdom

I am a big fan of Citizen M hotels in any case, having over the years stayed in this location, Amsterdam and all 3 London hotels, but my latest experience in Rotterdam inspired me to leave a review.

The ethos at Citizen M might not be for everyone, but for me the laid back, friendly atmosphere is so much more welcoming than other similarly styled hotels. Yes it's modern and funky, the beds and pillows are some of the most comfortable I've ever experienced, and they're generally in great locations, but what I really love is that there is not an ounce of pretension or that feeling of 'trying too hard'. The staff feel like a real team, they seem happy at work, and they make you feel a part of it.

This latest trip to Rotterdam personified this ethos above and beyond any and all expectation. We ended up being stuck an extra 2 nights because of bad weather and cancelled flights. Whilst this could have been a total nightmare, instead we made the most of it, spent a fair bit of quality time in the bar there (such great vibes) and also checked out more of Rotterdam than we'd have otherwise seen, including an incredible restaurant, based on recommendations from the lovely manager Alon. They even offered us a discount on the room without any suggestion from us, simply because they knew we weren't staying by choice. This was the icing on the cake.

I really cannot recommend this hotel any more, in Rotterdam or any other location!

According to the CitizenM concept our room was not too big. Everything in the room is done quite efficiently though: the bed is tugged away in the far end of the room under a floor to ceiling window, ours looking out to an office building in a quite courtyard. Toilet and shower are in a glass cylinder in the middle of the room. Its lighting sets the mood for the entire room and can be adjusted on the tablet. TV has multiple channels, incl some spicy ones, free of charge.
Hotel location is perfect: within walking distance are the Markthal, The Kubushouses, trainstaion Blaak, city center, harbour area and some nice restaurants. We did not use breakfast in the hotel. Find yourself a cheap parkingspot in the area on ParkBee and enjoy the city!
Next time I visit, I will definitely book CM (if the price is right)!

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel. I liked how they would personalize each room where my name was written on the TV screen and their IPad, they are really tech savvy, this also made me to feel special.
However, there isn't much variety in their breakfast selection, you get served scrambled or boiled eggs everyday! I did not like that. The fruit salad provided was quite sub-standard.
On the lighter side, the location of the hotel is quite central and it is nearby to main transport systems like the train and tram.

Upon arrival, I was immediately helped by staff. I was a little confused about the payment, and i was helped throughout the whole check-in process. You feel very free to do whatever you want and the living rooms looked very welcoming. We only stayed one night and had to leave in the morning, so we didn't get to actually use the livingrooms, but they looked very nice and inviting to work in (laptop or tablet for example). The beds were very good and the view was amazing! Would definitely recommend.

The citizenM Rotterdam was exactly what I needed for a weekend trip to the city. Perfectly located next to Rotterdam Blaak train station and Markethal, I was able to easily explore the city and always have a comfortable place to come back to. Rooms are small but efficient, and I particularly loved the shower, XL king bed, and iPad controlled blackout blinds. Staff were genuine and friendly, and the canteen was always there when I needed a bite of a hot cup of tea. Would definitely stay again, great value for money.

Excellent stay at Citizen M. Minutes away from the train station in a central & beautiful location - pleasantly surprised the iconic Cube Houses were right opposite it too! Markethall with international cuisine and supermarket was across the road so that was extremely convenient.

Reached the hotel slightly earlier than planned, and staff was welcoming and helpful with the check-in process, clear and helpful with explaining any questions we had and quick to provide clarifications.

Room was small, but sufficient. Beds were extremely comfortable so we had good sleeps and energized to explore the city during our stay.

Thank you Citizen M for the hospitality, will definitely be back.

The room is compact but very well designed. No space is wasted. Hence, the room feels spacious enough and comfortable. Special thanks to the marvelous bed. The hotel’s location is one of the best you could find in the city. The building is well maintained and looks pretty. The whole hotel is really clean and the staff is super friendly. Available dining options are excellent, both in the hotel and in the surrounding area. To offer some critics, I would say that the sink is a bit small, though perfectly sufficient for the purpose. I am biased on this because I personally prefer unreasonably huge sinks. But all together, CitizenM is one of the best hotels I have ever been to, and next time I am in Rotterdam, I know where I will stay.

Hey citizen Anatoly, Thank you for your comments. Excited to have you back soon, and I can assure you no comments go unnoticed. We have evolved our room layout and design throughout the years, and will continue to do so. I can't promise an unreasonably huge sink, but keep an eye out on our new hotels when you travel to have an even better exeprience. Best, Adam

Stayed 2 nights at Citizen M Rotterdam. Amazing value for money: a very trendy, beautifully decorated and pleasant hotel at a very reasonable price! Feels like a luxury hotel, yet without the budget.

Slept like a log in the huge and amazingly soft bed, and very quiet room.

As a wheelchair user we stayed in an adapted room. Although I don't think any adaptations were made in the room itself, the bathroom was very spacious. With a walk-in shower, grab bars, an emergency cord and a plastic shower chair provided, all necessary adaptations were made.

Beware, however: not suitable for portable hoist users, as there is no opening under the bed. The bed is also only reachable from one side for transfers.

Will definitely try to stay at Citizen M in the future!

Rooms are unlike anywhere I’ve ever stayed before being only 2.5m across with a built-in platform bed that goes from wall to wall.

Great if you like sharing your bed with friends but as a solo business traveller a bed so vast was a bit of a waste of space.

The massive bed comes at the cost of a tiny plastic floored toilet and shower cubicle that is so small the washbasin has to be outside in the sleeping space. Not great to be honest although the overhead rain shower is pleasingly powerful.

My first impression of the room was of something you might perhaps expect to find when they first set up a colony on the moon!

Thoughtfully there is a separate ironing room on each floor for pressing clothes if you need to but less thoughtfully there is no kettle or any kind of beverage making equipment in the room and no bottled water is supplied.

The communal living area is very funky and informal but the food I tried from the 24hr menu was somewhat disappointing. The old harbour behind the hotel has a few reasonably priced decent restaurants that are a far better option.

Breakfast was quite good value at 14 Euros.

Dear Geronimo16, Thank you for staying with us and sharing all your valuable thoughts. We are happy to read that you enjoyed your overall stay in our hotel and that our breakfast was to your liking. Indeed, our rooms in citizenM hotels are smaller compared to the traditional hotel rooms, yet we hope they have everything in them that would make it a great stay for our modern travelers. We hope that you had a blast in Rotterdam! Kind regards from the entire team, Natalja
