So what is it that makes the citizenM hotels so special?
Apart from great central city locations, the experience is streamlined and smart – featuring the latest high-tech amenities, guaranteed to impress even the grumpiest teenager.
It also honestly has the most comfortable XL king-size beds with luxury pillows and duvets; super-powered showers; HD TVs with free movie libraries, and superfast free Wi-Fi for working, streaming and surfing.
All 144 of the citizenM rooms in Geneva are perfectly designed for a maximum of two citizens and are controlled via the bedside MoodPad (adapted iPad) or the free citizenM app – with a single tap or swipe, guests can change the temperature, lower the blinds, browse movie libraries, or change their room lights to any colour. Mobile travellers will appreciate the unique pre-set TV moods by Brainwaves – a light-and-sound combination in three versions: sleep, focus, and anti-anxiety. Trust me getting a teenager to leave the room to do sightseeing is a challenge!
In fact, getting myself out the door was hard at times.
