Staycation at the citizenM hotel in Rotterdam

CitizenM is a 4-star hotel with modern and compact rooms, right across the street from the famous Markthal (a large covered market with eateries and food stalls) and the iconic cubic houses. There is a self check-in and check-out at a beautifully decorated lobby area with multiple touchscreens and they only accept electronic payments, so no cash. If you don't know how to operate it, there is always someone around to help you out. 

I stayed in a king room with a large bed, an ensuite bathroom with a rainshower, and a big window with a nice view. The room isn't really big, but every inch is efficiently utilized. There is a wide desk, perfect to use as a work or dinner table. There is enough closet space, a safe for valuables, and a sink placed outside the bathroom. It is funny to see how the bathroom has neon mood lighting. The wide and comfy bed was right next to the window, but it wasn't that cold. The drawer under the bed is large enough to store cabin luggage. I also like the funny comments printed on the pillows, the hairdryer bag, and other places; the tablet that controls the lighting, the curtains, and the TV; the media library; and the stylish decorations in the room. However, this room also doesn't have a mini fridge, an electric kettle, and a toothbrush and toothpaste. 

The location is also quite good, as a couple of touristic spots, shopping streets, a large supermarket at the basement of the Markthal, an open market at every Tuesday and Saturday, and a public library with a Starbucks cafe are all at walking distance. The room rate is a bit more expensive than the previous easyHotel
