Prefabricated design [2] welcomes the weary traveler at CitizenM Hotels [3], where luxury accommodations are available at economical prices thanks to the streamlined production of the modular units that make up the buildings. The Amsterdam-based company is able to offer affordable prices by keeping their construction costs low through a process called “Industrial Flexible Demountable,” which means modular units or “luxury pods” are fabricated off-site and then stacked together to construct a building [4]. With an ultra sleek look, the hotel offers a hip, youthful vibe that helps keep anyone’s pocketbook full.

CitizenM is short for Citizen Mobile — and is the target audience for this new hotel chain. What traits characterize a Citizen Mobile, you ask? Contemporary travelers are considered explorers, culture-seekers, professionals and shoppers — in other words, the hotels try to embody a sense of independence and youth. Whether or not you consider yourself a Citizen Mobile or simply someone looking for a good deal as an eco-conscious traveler, one thing is for sure: citizenM will be constructing hotels as they scout more locations in urban destinations and assemble rooms in their factory — and have already announced plans to roll out their pre-fabulous hotel accommodations in major cities all across Europe.
