Boasting a modern, boutique vibe, this European mini-chain has loads of high-tech amenities and 215 sleek rooms that make for a snazzy budget hotel experience.

Welcome to the hotel of the future, citizen Cheapo! The Citizen M offers a whopping 215 well-priced rooms with a trendy, technology-infused ambiance that will thrill you if you like to control your whole world—from TV to A/C—with your fingertips and a remote control. The hotel’s location, in Amsterdam's leafy Zuid-Amstel neighborhood, feels a touch removed from the action. If you don't mind that, and especially if you're good on two wheels, the techno-phile in you will love this hotel.
Rooms are decked out with satellite television, mood lighting and air conditioning that seeps through the walls—all of it controlled through a remote pad at your fingertips. Other high-tech perks include free Wi-Fi and complimentary movies on demand.
However, if you find shower and toilet pods stationed in the middle of guestrooms a tad disconcerting, you might want to move on to something more standard. No, that last line was not a typo. CitizenM's toilets and showers are housed in futuristic pod-like spaces that open and close at the push of a button. The shower even turns off automatically if you step away.
There's a Mac computer room in the lobby, plus a café offering a wide variety of snacks and juices. The décor is sleek and unapologetically contemporary, with a chic color scheme of reds and blacks.

About the citizenM hotel Amsterdam City neighborhood
The most popular neighborhood outside the city center, the Museumplein is a residential area crowded with museums, parks and 19th-century buildings. Museums here include the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and the Stedelijk Museum. The Vondelpark area, a 1970s playground of sex, drugs and rock'n'roll, is now an upscale commercial full of pricey boutiques and shops.
