experience: london hotel citizen M

I’m kicking off the first of many BlogTour London posts with a thank you to one of our sponsors of the event, Citizen M. Let’s be honest, us designer types are a little picky when it comes to hotels. Not only do we like our ideal location, cozy beds and amenities but we love a style and aesthetic to give our sensory palette a nice hit of inspiration.

Citizen M offers all that, a savvy price point and more. While considered a boutique style hotel, the lobby area is spacious, inviting and cordons off well designed areas to mingle, eat, drink, relax, work alone or even in a group. The rooms are suitable for one to two people and have everything you need to start and end your day comfortably. I slept like a baby!

Almost everything in the hotel is digital from check-in to raising your blinds, yet this does not discount the importance of people. Any staff member I came in contact with was helpful, friendly and also worldly. I noticed several accents other than British, which added a level of sophistication and allure I loved.

In an effort to capture the mood of being there in person I ‘instagramed’ my way through the hotel. Welcome to Citizen M. Details matter! Accommodating plugs for all is simply brilliant.

They’ve even added a handmade touch to each room. Adorable.

I won’t even go into the alarm clock options. You’ll have to go there to hear for yourself, but let’s just say it’s pretty wild ;)

Located in Bankside, which is ideal with easy access to tube stations and of course a cab ride is just a ‘hail’ away. Step outside the hotel lobby and walk to the River Thames with views of the magnificent London architecture.

If your travels are taking you to the likes of Amsterdam, Paris, New York or Glasgow, Citizen M has locations in these fine cities as well as London.

Thank you Citizen M for believing in BlogTour London, the importance of bloggers and what we bring to the social media scene. You were a fantastic host and a welcome place to return to at the end of our amazing and busy days.
