Hotel Description

London, more than just about any other city in the world, needs something like citizenM; the idea of a low-cost lodging that’s fit for human habitation, much less one that’s in possession of a modicum of visual style, is one that would, until recently, have met with nothing but derisive laughter around these parts.

That was before it actually opened. Now that the citizenM concept is producing tangible results, it’s quickly converting the non-believers. The rooms, while far from palatial, are attractively designed and surprisingly comfortable. King beds span the width of the rooms at their far ends, and the showers, though somewhat spacecraft-like in aspect, get the job done. In fact there’s a bit of an air of sci-fi utopianism about the place, and it’s only reinforced by the MoodPad, the touch-screen device with which guests control the room’s not inconsiderable array of electronics.

A sensible and stylish café completes the package — this is not the sort of place where you while away the day in the hotel’s various libraries and drawing-rooms. It’s a pied-à-terre in the purest sense, and canteenM is meant to get you out the door in high spirits.

Speaking of which: given the present (stratospheric) state of the property market north of the river, citizenM’s location is another area where it’s easy to see the savings. That’s not to say it’s an undesirable location, by any means; only that for the casual London visitor who’s never been farther south than the back side of Tate Modern, the Bankside/Southwark location is likely to feel slightly exotic. Then again the old familiar back side of Tate Modern is still only about three streets away.
