What we love is the location and the service. The moment when you stepped out of the lift lobby at level one, you can find whatever you need within the 1km vicinity! We booked 2 rooms for 3 nights and had the chance to use the washing machine and dryer which the hotel offered for free at level 6. The... More

I stayed at Amba Hotel in January/February 2015. It was quite different from other hotels I have been to, but it was a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. The room was not grand, but it has all the essentials. I found it very comfy and refreshing. The location was quite convenient. It is located in Ximending and about 10 minutes... More

The service staff was very helpful and there is a map provided for travelers to guide them around Taipei. And the security is good too. Easy access to the public transport. There are many good food nearby that one must go to try.

Very nice new young and modern boutique hotel, suitable for the young and old. Great location to catch a cab although there's no parking space. A bit of walk to Ximen station but it's still manageable. Walking distance to a 24-hr Watsons to get your amenities and Japanese/Korean cosmetics. Yong He Soy milk outlet is also nearby. Would definitely stay... More

We stayed for one night in late March 2015 on our final day in Taipei. It’s fair to say we were somewhat apprehensive about staying here having read previous reviews that suggested the hotel was quite noisy given its location right in the heart of Ximending. We stayed in a double room which was very modern (i.e quite sparsely furnished)... More

The hotel is situated in the lively neighborhood of Ximending, about 5-10 mins walk from the nearesrt Ximen MRT station. My friend and I stayed 3 nights at the extra-large twin room. As soon as you enter the room, you will find yourself in the bathroom area. The toilet and the shower unit are separated by a large washbasin area... More

This was my second hotel in Taiwan and it was certainly different compared to other hotels I have stayed throughout the world. It was more a trendy hotel with a great location. It could be quite intimidating to find the hotel as it is not on a road but with a mall and Starbucks as the focal point, it shouldn't... More

Practical and funky hotel. Bfast selection was not bad. Like the overhead shower. Needs more lighting- room's a bit dark and small. There is no eslite bookstore in this building. Good area if for teenager's shopping desires.
