If your honeymoon budget doesn't quite stretch to your epic list of must-sees, Dutch-born citizenM hotel chain is for you.

With the motto, 'Affordable luxury for the people', the chain promises 'absolutely no trouser presses, bellboys, or stupid pillow chocolates' - and the result is a slick, wonderfully relaxed honeymoon experience.


Forget five-star service - these are hotels where you check-in yourself via touch screens in the lobby, serve yourself in the 24-hour canteen and bar (sandwiches, salads, sushi in the day and hot comfort food by night), and control everything in your room - electric blinds, temperature and even the colour of the lights - via your personal remote control.

The bedrooms themselves are compact cubicles of cool that just about fit a super king-size bed, glass 'pod' rain shower, and furniture from design powerhouse Vitra.


If you're feeling sociable, head to the open-plan ground floor and lounge on the super-chic sofas, before admiring the artwork - photography by Mario Testino and tongue-in-cheek works by Gavin Turk in London and a 26-foot-tall installation by Julian Opie in New York (pictured) - and just how low your final bill is.
