As DanTaylor2006 already pointed out the bed is massive; TV-channels and AVOD is free as is WiFi.
The room provides little space to unpack a suitcase; it is clearly geared to cater for the usual one night stop-over guest.
If you are travelling alone, size of room is okay; for two it gets a bit cramped.
The bed is aligned parallel to the window, but stretches of the full width of room. So a 2nd person lying on the window side of bed will have to climb over the person lying at the room-side of bed.
Toilet and wash basin are in the middle of the room as is the shower with its glass walls.
At the time I used the hotel, signage to the hotel from within Schiphol Plaza was bad - as was proper directions on the hotels website. Follow signs through Schiphol Plaza to Rental Car Counters (located at the very northern end of the structure. i.e. turn right when exiting Arrivals). Step out of the building and you will see the hotel in like 150m distance; a covered footpath leads to the hotel.
Do not get put off by the appearance of the corridors: They resemble those of a jail and room doors open into the corridor rather than into the room.
The hotel has a free library in its lounge.
I didn´t have breakfast at the hotel, but read mixed reviews at tripadvisor. In case you opt to not having breakfast at the CitizenM, there are a few convenience stores in Schiphol Plaza where you can stock food- and drinks suppies. The one located closest to the hotel should be Albert Heijn (AH) To Go located more or less opposite the rental car counters. A broader selection is available rom the shop opposite Burger King.
Even though you might get a airport-facing room, those windows will not be good for photography. But to view the action it is okay.
More info about spotting at AMS on www.schipholspotter.nl
(including info how to get to outlying spotting places). A rented bicycle (aka fiets
) might be an option to get around w/o the hassle of parking a car.
