The Dutch hotel chain CitizenM is an ´´affordable luxury´´ hotel concept. They rethought the whole offer in hotels. They got rid of (in their eyes) all the unnecessary things. No reception, mini-bars or in-house restaurant where you have breakfast with all the other guests. No, what´s left is a well-designed & trendy hotel with hi-tech quality rooms that truly creates a ‘’home feeling’’. I mean quality; a King-Size bed, rain shower & an iPad Mini that controls the sound, light & temperature. Oyeah, as well as the TV.
Common in all CitizenM is the large communal area/lobby where guests and visitors can read, work, meet or just chill out. CanteenM is a 24/7 coffee/breakfast/juice/food/cocktail bar where you can get your baked goods and shots of caffeine. Plus the ''ambassadors'' who can answer all of your questions.
The best feature of them all at CitizenM Tower of London is the rooftop bar (my opinion;)). Located on the 7th floor it has a stunning view of the Tower of London & the Shard. The interior is a nice mix of a cool, contemporary & classic style with Vitra furniture & art. One more level up you can find the meeting rooms.
The menu in the bar offers a nice mix of beers, wines & spirits. If you’re hungry, please don’t hesitate to order some food of the food menu, but at the end it’s all about soaking up that amazing view!
With hotels in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Glasgow, London, New York & Paris, they are slowly expanding internationally. Dutch rule!
