I stayed at Ambience hotel with my family for 5 days in April and here is my review:
Ambience Hotel is located along Section 1, Chángān East Road (长安东路一段). It is a 10-15 mins walk from nearest train station Zhōngxiào Xīnshēng (忠孝新生站). For IT lovers, the Guang Hua (光华) Digital Plaza is along the way to train station. If you travel in a small group, it might be worth to grab a cab if the destination is near.
As the name implies, Ambience Hotel tries to create a good ambience for her customers. In the dining area, they have a violinist playing while you eat. Forget about sitting outside in the courtyard for breakfast as you will be bitten by mosquitoes. Ambience hotel only provides breakfast, so you have to settle lunch and dinner on your own. Good thing there are some eateries along the road.
In the room, they have LCD TV with cable and also a CD player. They added a CD of songs so that you can play some ambient music. The room design is modern, clean and considered spacious. Bed sheets and pillow cases are clean and comfy. They replenish the free 2 bottles of distilled water and snacks every day.
The bathroom is relatively big and amenities were sufficient. They offer toothpaste, toothbrush, a bar of soap, shower liquid, shampoo, conditioner, comb, razor, shower cap, bedroom slippers, hair dryer, etc. They have an over-the-head "rain" shower head and a bath tub! Their toilet bowl comes with bidet installed. When I stayed on the 3rd floor, I found it quiet. When I stayed at 8th floor, I found that I could hear people talking in the corridor when I was in the toilet. (The toilet faces the door.)
They have a laundry room on the 10th floor. They have a top load washing machine there and a dryer. They provide detergent and laundry basket. You might want to avoid staying on the 10th floor if you prefer a quiet environment.
There is free wifi in the hotel, no password required. They also have 2 desktop PCs near the lobby for you to surf. Speed of wifi is good.
The staff has excellent service attitude and ever willing to offer help and advice. They speak good English too. When we mentioned that there was a mosquito in the room, they actually put a mosquito trapper device in our room. Very attentive and personal service! Ask them where to find good food and they will gladly point you in the correct direction.
The hotel offers to call taxi for you to airport but it will cost you around NTD1300. We manage to negotiate with a taxi driver for NTD900 for 4 pax. Some taxi drivers will give you name cards, or offer you sight seeing packages, or offer you journey to airport at good rates.
