This hotel is a modern and hip boutique hotel with glossy brochures and nice design. However, they promise more than they can deliver. I read in the hotel information sheet in the room that happy hours was from 6pm-8pm everyday. So we went down at 6pm and asked for happy hour deals. The bartender looked surprised and said there was... More

Close to MTR which allows easy access to everywhere. Concierge was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was simple but plentiful. Only shortcoming during my stay: There were 2 of us staying in the Balcony room, even though it was the largest room category of the hotel, it has only one sink. A double sink would matched this room category.

Amba offers a new hotel experience in Taipei. Affordable accommodation with an added pop of design flair. Location is excellent; right in the heart of Ximending and shopping district. 5 mins walk to Ximen MRT. The bathroom and bedroom are all in one space with separate doors leading to shower and toilet cubicles. I've stayed in 'design' hotels like this... More

Just stayed in this chic hotel last week and am very happy that the room size is much larger than many other hotels in the same area. The bed was super huge and comfy, and am glad that I got a medium king room so that there is more space to dump our shopping loots each night. Love the products... More

Amba is in a great location, easily accessible and right smack in the Ximending area! Loved its location. Rooms are simple, no-frills but sufficient and clean. It is comfy and has whatever is needed, nothing more. Our only complain is that there is no heating in the room.. and one night during our stay in March, it was 12deg outside... More

Highly recommend this hotel. Excellent location if you are the sort who love to hang out and enjoy the street food and small shops in the Ximending area (most of which remain open till midnight). It's just 5-7 mins walk to Ximen MRT train station (exit 6). This stop is on the main blue line which takes you to many... More
