It Isn't Over Until...

We made the most of our 12-hour overnight layover in Amsterdam by checking into the Citizen M Hotel one block from the airport. A good-night's sleep sounded SO inviting.

To all travelers
long and short haul
To the suits, weekenders, fashion baggers, and explorers
To those who need a great bed,
a cold drink and big fluffy towels.
A hotel for all
mobile citizens of the world.
Welcome to citizen M.

This hotel is pretty hard to describe, so I'll let Potts show you:

Very upbeat, very clean, very comfortable.

 The privacy hanger said, "Don't come in; there's someone naked in here." 
A pretty fair warning considering the shower is right IN the bedroom.

 They even provided shower gel/shampoo for morning or evening.

 AND a stuffed animal.

Our morning wake up call consisted of 
very gentle songbirds,
 then monkeys, lions, and various other jungle animals, 
then elephants blasting as loud as possible! 

It made us laugh.

And with that, we made our way home.


  1. What a great place. Someone thought through the whole experience and every little detail... I highly recomend this place to anyone who is spending the night in the Amsterdam airport.

  2. I need an alarm clock like that!
