If you follow my review, I gave thumb up for Amba Zhongshan, so I decided to stay at the Ximending branch during my holiday. Overall, 5 stars for the location, service, breakfast and the price. However, I would not really recommend for Business traveler as Amba tend to lack some kind of space for business people to do work. Room... More

Stayed for 3 nights in AMBA. Hotel lobby is on Level 5 - you have to take the lift from outside a shopping mall to reach the lobby. Rooms have all the basic amenities - slippers, toiletries etc all delivered with a dose of Chinese humour. The breakfast buffet is in the restaurant on the lobby level. Variety is decent... More

I've been visiting Taiwan since 2004 and over the years have stayed in a number of different hotels in Taipei, but since discovering amba Taipei Ximending I honestly can't see myself staying anywhere else.

We visited there for two nights to explore the xiamending area. The hotel is quite new and centrally located at the shopping episentrum. But you have to carefully look for the hotel sign because it doesnt have a specific lobby building. I don't think they have parking area either. You should walk a bit inside the shopping stores and a... More

It's all about the location - you're really in the heart of the Ximending district with lots of shopping, restaurants, and nightlife at your doorstep. Noticeably it was quiet in our room and we didn't hear any of the street noise below. The hotel/room décor is modern minimalist. Bathroom has separate shower/toilet areas, shower has lots of hot water but... More

Pleasantly sized room that was well equipped and cozy. Interesting play of words on the amenities provided. Great location and easily accessible by public transportation. Service was great and friendly. Layout of the hotel rooms is slightly cramped, and can be slightly noisy in the morning, but not a deal breaker.
