UK: Dutch "luxury budget" brand Citizen M has opened its first London property, near Tate Modern on the South Bank.

Situated on Lavington Street on Bankside, the 192-room property is offering rooms from £99 per night.

The hotel features an open plan lobby, ground-floor canteenM with wooden coffee bar and bakery-style open kitchen, computers for public use, and seven meeting rooms.

The rooms, while small, feature beds measuring two metres square, free wifi and movies, workdesk, a fridge, vanity area and hanging space. The TV, blinds, temperature, lighting and wake up alarms are all controlled by a touchscreen tablet.

Artwork is featured heavily throughout the property - its collection includes pieces by Turner prize-nominated Mark Titchner, a video installation by Belgian artist Hans ob de Beeck, and a floor-to-ceiling mural by collective Assume Vivid Astro Focus.

The London property joins Citizen M hotels in Amsterdam and Glasgow. Two further London properties are in the pipeline, along with outlets in New York, Paris, Rotterdam, Hong Kong and Istanbul.
