CityzenM Hotel Amsterdam – Hotel With a Twist

A few years back, me and my boyfriend was to participate in the Amsterdam Marathon. As usual I was the one making the travel arrangements, and as usual I searched for a hotel in close proximity of the start/finish area. The choice fell on CitizenM, which both had a great location marathon wise and was affordable.

When we first entered the hotel, we were impressed with the cozy atmosphere in the reseption area. It was buzzling with life and was obviously a popular hangout. It was first when we entered our room that we discovered a snag. In the middle of the floor was the toilet, with just the option of pulling a glass door around you when you were to do your business. The shower had the same arrangement, and it didn’t help that you had the option of changing the colourof the light. Call me old fashioned, but I was not at all comfortable with this setup. So, my boyfriend ended up using the toilet in the reseption and I used the one in the hotel room…

  1. We’ve stayed in a couple of CitizenM hotels and the bathroom arrangements are a bit awkward to say the least. I think they’re better for sole travellers or old married couples. And yes, my husband has to use the facilities on the ground floor!
