Amsterdam: tulips and windmills, right? Or how about speedy check-in and a spot of affordable luxury at citizenM’s state-of-the-art airport hotel? That sounds more like it.
citizenM Amsterdam Schiphol hotel is very close to Arrivals Hall 4. How close? It takes longer to collect luggage and go through passport control than to walk here (just 4 minutes or a 6-minute moonwalk if you fancy it). Frequent 24/7 connections to Amsterdam Central Station, South Amsterdam and other key business locations means that meeting in the city is just a few minutes away from our cocktail bar.
Close in location but miles apart in style, the hotel has more art than a museum, a luxury living room with wow-factor Vitra furniture, and hundreds of books – perfect while waiting for a flight. citizenM’s 24/7 canteenM serves everything from delicious breakfasts to late-night cocktails. Instead of a reception desk, a self-check-in kiosk – zero queues, no forms to fill out, key-in-hand in one minute.
The buzz of the living room carries through to the one-of-a-kind societyM meeting spaces. Six stylish meeting rooms (the largest for up to 14 people) come with Vitra furniture, tech essentials, unlimited coffee, tea and water, stationery and walls to write on. The rooms are bookable on AM, PM and all-day basis, with local catering available by request with 48 hours’ notice.
Upstairs, citizenM’s philosophy of ‘affordable luxury’ is best experienced in the guest rooms. There’s only one room type at citizenM – the perfect one – with everything a modern traveler
needs, and nothing they don’t. The bed is always XL king-size, topped with the world’s fluffiest pillows. The shower is always jungle-like with full-size shower gel and shampoo. And the superfast Wi-Fi is free (everywhere in the hotel, from the bar to the living room and every tech-filled bedroom).
Cool extras include a smart TV with Chromecast and AirPlay to stream TV shows, music and films. An iPad to control the room’s ambience and entertainment – from the lights and blinds to temperature and TV. Guests can also download the free (award-winning) citizenM app to control all of these from their phone or smart device. On the iPad is citizenM’s exclusive Brainwaves moods – music-and-light compositions scientifically proven to alleviate the common stresses of travel: anxiety, sleeplessness and lack of focus.
Every room worldwide has a free digital series of unique workouts, from barre to boxing. Each one is 45 minutes and designed with Gymbox (a leading London gym brand) to complete in a citizenM room – no equipment needed.
Schiphol might be around the corner but another night’s stay in affordable luxury is very tempting… Book the ABC rate using the chain code: CU
