The best thing about this hotel is its location. It is fabulous for shopping and near several cinemas if you're a movie buff. There are also a lot of convenience food options and quite a few small restaurants as well. The hotel itself has a nice breakfast restaurant with a reasonable buffet breakfast but it does have limited options although... More

I will give 80 point out of 100. Hotel is not far from station but a little bit hard to find. But everything would be fine when I enter the hotel. First of all, very stylish interior like pop art, my checked-in room didn't hv windows but not felt heavy, due to its minimal interior, felt very cozy and comfortable.... More

We booked a medium room with king size bed. Everything in the room is clean and tidy. There is free laundry room next to the lift lobby. Staff are polite and helpful.

The location for this is hotel is very good, unless you don't like the crown area. I comment it is good , and not excellent, because you may need pass the crown area (Ximending shopping area) to MRT station. My room is fine but the windows is very small without view.

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.
