CitizenM Rotterdam Hotel is different. It is modern and urban hotel with new and fresh concept. CitizenM offers affordable luxury for international travelers - modern citizens who are very mobile, travel often and use modern technology. Hotel is designed in a way that »citizens« feel at home, have certain luxury and can use new technology. Its concept »citizenM says: ...« is seen all over the hotel and looks very cute.
CitizenM Rotterdam Hotel has perfect location in the center of Rotterdam, close to Blaak station, which is very convenient if you want to explore Rotterdam or you just have a meeting in the city. Cube houses and Markthal are just minute away. If you come by car, as we did, parking garage is available just few minutes from the hotel and it costs 12 EUR per day. Hotel is designed with assumption that you use bedroom only for sleeping. That is why hotel lobby is not just lobby but it looks more like living room; there are more living room areas, bar, internet corner... everything designed in a warm domestic atmosphere that makes you feel at home.
You can sit in the living room area by the fireplace and watch TV with your friends like in your own living room, in the other living room area there are other guests watching TV, some other guests sit at the table, others are in the bar...
Technology is key feature in the hotel. Hotel does not have classic reception desk only computers. Guests can do check in and check out by themselves. You don't have to be afraid; check in and check out is very quickly, just few clicks and paying with credit card. Of course paying is only possible with credit card. If you have any problems during check in or check out the staff is always around to help.
We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. They gave us all the necessary information about hotel and Rotterdam. For elevator you must have room card.
While entering the room you can expect two feelings. Either you will be disappointed about unusual look and size of the room or you will be excited about extraordinary look of the room. We certainly were excited about new concept of room especially we liked big and comfortable bed.
Next morning we were even more excited because the beautiful view through big wall-to-wall window was revealed. Room was clean and very bright.
Everything in the room can be managed with tablet; from lights, TV, curtains to alarm clock.
So don't expect to find classic luxury or king-sized room or bathroom because you will not. Rooms are small, bathrooms are even smaller... but CitizenM hotel with its concept is really something else. CitizenM Rotterdam Hotel is very nice, clean and urban hotel. But the most important is its citizen concept designed for modern, young at heart and technologically oriented people who are very mobile and world is their home.
We found this fresh and modern concept of affordable luxury to be so cute and it made staying in the hotel very enjoyable. We really enjoyed staying in CitizenM Rotterdam Hotel especially we liked that »at home« feeling while sitting in the living room area by the fireplace.
Would we recommend CitizenM Rotterdam Hotel? By all means we would recommend it because CitizenM Rotterdam is new, modern, clean, urban hotel with new approaches and perfect location. We say to citizenM: »Very nice hotel, very cute concept... just keep going.«
