One of the new gaggle of no-frills accommodation options that seem to be flooding European cities, CitizenM has washed up close to the World Trade Center and RAi conference center and caters largely to short-stay business travelers, although there's the fast Tram 5 service right into the city center for sightseers. Check-in is automated, barista-standard coffee is on tap 24/7, and a canteen serves up sushi and salads at lunch. The zingy, ultramodern room designs include pod-like showers; touch-screen remotes; huge, comfortable beds; and free movies; breakfast is extra at €11 if ordered in advance, €3 more on the day. There's another outpost within spitting distance of Schiphol airport.
