When you get to Citizen M, the unusual check-in may be the very first thing you notice. Rather like online check-in for flights, you just enter your details right into a computer terminal and you are then issued together with your room key. The 'M' means 'Mobile Citizen from the World' – it should be 'MCW' but let's not quibble. The hotel is located in a residential neighborhood and you may need to catch a 10-minute tram journey to get at the cultural area of this great European city. But there is plenty to determine and do when you are getting there. Your uniquely compact room is mainly adopted with a large bed with pillows in the centre, allowing you to sleep in almost any direction. You control the sunlight, TV and music in your room out of your own 'mood pad' which is high-tech but additionally simple to use. You may make utilisation of the lobby which is also a 24-hour canteen, TV room, workspace and library. Whenever you leave your living space keycard doubles like a luggage tag so that you can recognize other 'Citizen M' people around the world. And, presumably, end up being the better of friends.
