the hotel for the modern business traveller

The citizenM philosophy is ‘affordable luxury for the people’, offering guests all the luxuries they would expect from a 5* hotel in a prime location, but without sky-high prices. But the citizenM experience is more than just facilities and price. It’s a new state of mind for a new type of traveller: one who values personal choice, modern design, friendly technology and the proximity to a city. citizenM appeals to this traveller with its approachable, down-to-earth and world-wise personality, and a stylish and affordable experience. 

The first citizenM hotel opened at Amsterdam Schiphol airport in 2008. Paris, New York, London, Copenhagen, and Shanghai are some of the world-class cities where citizenM welcomes travellers to affordable luxury.
