This was our third time stay in this hotel. Main reasons, still the same, very convenient location and excellent services provided by front desk and concierge. Breakfast: newly added menu which we enjoyed very much... hand made sticky rice rolls.... you have a choice of fillings... will stay here again next time !

Stayed for 3 nights in mid July as a couple. Rooms were clean and large enough to put 2 large suitcases. Shower pressure good, with amenities such as toothbrush, toothpaste and various other lotions, shampoo, etc of good quality. Location is right in the middle of ximending, a busy area which caters to the younger crowds. Would definitely stay here... More

Amba Ximending is a fun and convenient place to stay. We love the Ximen area with all its energy, especially at night, its shops and eateries. The 'smart' room is 'only' 22m2; yet we are amazed at how well they designed it. The queen size bed is comfortable and the bathroom is spacious with all the amenities one would expect... More
