CitizenM is a pretty unconventional hotel. It privileges the common spaces, rather than the rooms. As such, our room was small, with part of the bathroom (the basin) in the corridor and the rest separated from the room with opaque glass.
The bed, large and very comfortable, is basically fitted between the two walls and the large window glass (in other words, if you are in 2, the second person has to "invade" the side of the first one to go to and come out of bed).
Besides the initial moments of disorientation, we found everything enjoyable.
Everything in the room (the colour-changing lights, the big flat screen tv, the curtains) can be controlled with an iPad.
For the meals there is a large area with dispensers of food and beverages open 24h. The bar can prepare coffees in the breakfast hours and drinks in the evening.
There are lots of tables, couches and armchairs at the ground floor and first floor, with PC stations available. The furniture is very stilish.
Check-in and check-out can be made by yourself in one of the several pc stations at the entrance (there is a person, however, to assist you in case of need).
The hotel is in front of the Royal Conservatoire, and 5 minute walk far from Bath St. and from the Glasgow School of Art and provides for a discount for the nearby park of Cambridge St.
The whole hotel is very modern designed with living room theme lobby and lounge. The room is one of the best designed and high tech I've ever seen!! Everything is controlled from an ipad with mood lighting in the bathroom.
Lots of free movie to choice from on the flat screen TV. Bed only comes in extra king size; it's the most comfortable bed I've slept on in any hotel. The staff are super friendly and housekeeping has always been done to the highest standards!
The only reason I say it may be a bit pointless is because you book a room for the night with your missus and although it is nice and spacious and the bed is big and the selection of movies (both pornographic or otherwise) is vast.
You spend so little time in your room does it even matter?
Enjoyed the times I've stayed here but would have enjoyed a smaller (cheaper) room just as much.
Booked here because I needed a place near the bus station and comfortable to have a nice rest after a long floght. This hotel accomplizhed every requirement. The check in and check out may not be easy to people non technologically riendly but there is always somebody near to assist youf
Fantastic staff, made us very welcome. Location is good, next to bus station and mins walk to Argyle Street. Entrance and bar rooms are excellent. The rooms are very small and next to no wardrobe space.
Not great for families. Bed is amazing and impressive tech gadgets in room
Everything you need in your room , except a kettle for a late cupa, or that first much needed early morning cup of Tea ! However I understand the hotel is centered araound the social , meet and eat/ drink in the communal areas , however some guests might enjoy convenience of their rooms , especially if tired , or solo travelling , or just wish a cuppa whilst in their PJ's ( I know I did )
We stayed at the citizen M hotel from 02-04 augustus. The room was very different from what I experienced before. With an ipad you can control the lights, the TV, the showerlights, the alarm clock, the blinds and much more.
I was pleasantly surprised with the experience. The room was fine, everything we needed was present. The shower was fine, everything was clean and there is a nicely decorated canteen where you can get coffee, breakfast and other things. You can sit in chairs facing large windows facing the street. The people are very friendly and I honestly have nothing to complain about. The one suggestion I would give is regarding the shower/bathroom in the rooms. The toilet ---in our room- was behind a type of glass (where the shower is also located) and one hears all the noise in the room.....Another minor inconvenience in our room, was that the double bed was attached to the window which means that the person who sleeps near the window has to climb over the other person....
Where do I start, when your on a night out with a girl your not supposed to be with and spraying VIP booths in champagne and losing your shoes and grinding up against the same sex people in bars then the citizen m is the place to finish the night, the bed is as soft as a 18 year old virgins bosom and the selection of pornographic material on the tv is not only impressive but extensive.
Staff were excellent and accommodating.
Couldn't recommend it anymore to anyone including Thor, and he's a god.
