CitizenM Rotterdam: Bold, organic and welcoming interiors


Located close to Blaak Station in Rotterdam’s old port, CitizenM Hotel Rotterdam’s 151 rooms boast wall-to-wall beds, rain showers and tablet ‘mood pads’ – the epitome of affordable luxury in Rotterdam.

Designed by concrete, led by Rob Wagemans, its founder – has designed a home away from home with a touch of luxury for ‘mobile citizens of the world’ in Rotterdam.


The concept behind citizenM hotels was a straightforward one: to remove all hidden costs whilst providing a luxury environment for guests. The interior is characterised by citizenM’s iconic black and red colour scheme and enhanced with bold architectural features, including a timber helical staircase, designed by concrete and manufactured by EeStairs.

The bedrooms offer guests an escape to recuperate or work in comfort. There is a wall-to-wall, super-king size bed, to lounge in, a table which doubles as a desk and a flat screen television.

For that added touch of luxury each room is equipped with a touch screen mood pad that allows guests to control the whole room, including the curtains, climate and television. It also comes with six pre-programmed light settings creating a number of atmospheric settings, including work, shower and even ‘surprise me’.

Equipped with rainfall and a hand shower the wet room is constructed from semi-circular frosted glass for a sense of transparency and privacy. The translucent ceiling lights can be set to any colour, which makes the bathroom a stand out feature within the room.
