We are Sem and Pieter. Two university buddies from Amsterdam, who are setting up a new style hotel. We like to enjoy life and meet people, but most of all we love to see the world. On the many journeys we took together we started to feel that the hotels we visited somehow did not completely fulfill our needs....
Therefore we came up with CityHub. CityHub represents a new generation of travellers that emerged from today’s interactive and interdependent world. At CityHub, these travellers stay in cool sleeping units called 'Hubs'. Each Hub offers you a large comfy two persons bed, an Ipod docking station, free WiFi and multi-color mood lighting. All other facilities such as toilets and showers are shared with your fellow travellers. But no worries, they are spic and span at all times!
At CityHub you enjoy, interact and share experiences through a smart online platform. An interactive wall in the social room shows you what’s going on in the city and what CityHub’s community is talking about. Instead of us, YOU are the one that creates CityHub’s unique vibe. Jointly we create a base from which to explore the beautiful cities of the world.
CityHub BETA is our first pilot location with four Hubs that we have set up in our beautiful apartment in the heart of Amsterdam. CityHub BETA offers you all that CityHub stands for. It has a social room where you can get yourself some food, drinks and snacks. Here you can also share your experiences through CityHub’s interactive wall and meet with fellow travellers.
You can now be one of the first to spend a night in a HUB! CityHub BETA provides the perfect base from which you can explore Amsterdam. It is situated in the heart of Amsterdam within 5 minutes walking from famous area of het Leidseplein, the museum district and Amsterdam's most beautiful park. Also many of the cultural highlights of the city are just around the corner. In total CityHub Beta has four private Hubs.
We invite you to be one of the first to stay at CityHub and share your findings with us!!!
We hope to welcome you soon at CityHub Beta…

CityHub was a fantastic experience that made our visit to Amsterdam super easy and enjoyable. Both Sem and his business partner made us feel very welcome as soon as we walked in the door, offering us water, coffee, and snacks, and even let us check in early. Directions from he the airport were easy to follow and we got there on public transit in less than 20 mins. Everything at CityHub was exactly as described and our little hub was the perfect amount of space for two people to comfortably move around in and the beds were big and comfy.
The concept of CityHub is a revolutionary idea and if you aren't the type of person who "actually" wants to share a 12-person dorm in downtown Amsterdam, but can't afford a hotel room either, then CityHub is the perfect place. You have your own private hub, but also get to socialize with other travelers in the common room. During our stay, there was only one other hub occupied near us, so it felt like we had the whole place to ourselves.
For the hubs, you get a wristband that gives you electronic access to your own hub and the front door, making it very easy to come and go whenever you please.The area of CityHub is really quiet, but there are plenty of cute cafes and stores in the area. It's also right around the corner from Leidsplein, which is an easy 5-7 minute walk. There is also a tram stop a block away which will take you wherever you want to go. Both of our hosts were great and very welcoming and even took the time to give us a map and show us their own local spots that they like to frequent. They ultimately made us feel very relaxed and at home. Thanks for the awesome experience, guys! We'll definitely be back soon to check out the new location!

Had a good experience staying at CityHub. Sem welcomed us when we arrived late at night and helped to carry our luggage up the steps. The hub was small, but the bed was very comfortable. It's very easy to get to via public transport, and only a few minutes walk from the tram stop. Sem also helped us with directions and how to get to the main attractions. He served us coffee each morning and let us try a dutch lemonade! We wished we could've stayed longer to see all the main sites in depth. Thanks for a good stay!
Restored my faith in AirBnB! After a bumpy start to using this app, City Hub was me giving it a second go. The City Hub was great! The building was clean,
Modern and close to the centre. The rooms were really comfortable and the mood lighting/music input is a really nice touch. Showers were clean, hot and had good pressure and there was a well stocked shelf of fresh towels. Sam and Peter were really friendly and welcoming and I would recommend this to anybody visiting Amsterdam - I will definitely stay again!
CityHub is really a cool place. The accommodation is clean and convenient to users. Sem is also a nice guy, sharing some great places to visit in Amsterdam with us and his own opinion of this pretty city :-)
Really a good experience here !
Perfect experience! Very cosy and clean. If you are here just to sleep, you don't need anything else. Location is great, Sem is the perfect host, feels like home in a few minutes! Looking forward to see more CityHub around the world!
It was excellent !! the location is spectacular, the whole concept is really good. Bed was delightful, and Sem was really helpfull and kind with us. At my next time in Amsterdam definitelly I will back in CityHub
