Just stayed a night. Check in and out was so swift...not even 5 mins taken. .not sure if because it is a monday and low season period. I have a very sound sleep. Appreciate the small map with the 捷运 (Taipei Metro) and ximending area. Didnt stay long enough to be able to say much but I thought it would... More

I travelled to Taipei in Feb this year. Amba hotel is at a rather good location, within Ximending which is to my liking at least the surrounding of the hotel is not too quiet. The MRT station is around 10mins walk from the hotel which I would prefer it to be nearer. Room was big and spacious. Only concern was... More

This hotel was a great place to stay with access to the MRT only a few blocks away. It was a happening place with lots of action but still very quiet. The breakfast was excellent and the bar was a nice place to hang out for a few drinks. The only downside was I arrived very early at 0700 and... More

Ximen is a great area to use as a base. I traveled around town for three days. The street under my window was always busy but the only noise was a band setup in the late morning. This is a young and trendy area of town and the hotel fits the area. European style rooms. The split bathroom and common... More

Much enjoyable stay at the hotel. Location is excellent. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and large. Although it took me a phone call to the front desk to be able to locate the tv remote control :) Will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Taipei.

The hotel is located next to a high end shopping mall. Unless you are getting Potter (which is cheaper in Taiwan), otherwise, our airport is good enough.
