citizenM is a highly innovative hotel concept, developed specifically for today’s smart, mobile traveler. It is based on the novel belief that hotel guests shouldn’t pay for facilities they don’t use.
citizenM – short for citizen mobile – has reflected on and learnt from the needs of these mobile citizens. they know what they like in a good hotel and what they don’t need from a bad one. What they like includes stylish design and great value. They appreciate the best entertainment for free. The latest technology, quality products, a sociable atmosphere, a comfortable bed and great pillows (never, ever underestimate the pillow). They need a hotel in a good location. What they don’t want it unnecessary or hidden costs. They don’t need marble fountains or out-dated services.
citizenM has a unique personality and likes to be approachable, down-to-earth, friendly and worldly wise. While we take our aim of providing a stylish and affordable hotel very seriously, citizenM also acts with a sense of humour. Above all, citizenM wants to offer a new type of hotel experience for a new type of traveller: people who value personal choice, modern design, friendly technology and the proximity to a city – for an accessible price.
