I sort of have mixed feelings about citizenM. I've been to this location at least four times now. The most recent two, I noticed there were lots of flies in the breakfast area. It was kind of surprising. The rooms are indeed small. On a rainy or snowy day, one might bring too much of the outside world in. The beds are very comfortable though and although the comforter looks thin it is adequate for warmth. I think the doll pillows are weird and actually a bit scary. I could do without the pillows tbh Overall, CitizenM isn't bad but I feel like they are letting some things slip. Another thing to be aware of is although I wouldn't call the location surrounding the hotel unsafe, it does seem to attract vagrants and drifters. It's not quite prime real estate.

Good value for your money especially for travelling solo! The location of this hotel cannot be beat! It’s walking distance to all the Soho stores and restaurants, Little Italy, Chinatown, Union square, downtown and the bridges to Brooklyn. The room is small but functional, works perfectly if you are by yourself. Plus, the common areas of the hotel are very spacious and welcoming. Staff is very friendly, breakfast reasonably priced. You do not need to pay for the full breakfast and can easily grab a coffee and a pastry for under $10. Rooftop is fabulous. Other reviewers mentioned lots of homeless outside of the hotel but I did not see any next to the hotel property, also to not see a homeless person in NYC is kind of a utopian dream imho. Did not have any issues with the noise either, my room was on the 7th floor. It is worth noting that most of the things in the room such as lighting, shades, AC and the tv need to be controlled from an iPad as well as the check-in and out, so if you are not a fan of tech, you might not like. One thing I was not a fan of was the pillows, very thick and heavy, but other than that had no issues and would love to return again.
