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. The hotel is perfectly located in the busy, vibrant Ximen district, a short walk from the MRT station with connections to the rest of the capital.... More

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.

Hotel is located right at the heart of Ximending. This hotel is associated with the Taiwan famous bookshop 诚品书局。 The interior design of the room is neat and simple.

I like this hotel, cozy and comfortable! Good location in Ximending, but starting we can't find where is the hotel located, we just saw the logo and after a while we only knew we need to press level 5 to access to the reception. Staff are friendly and helpful. I love the ginger shampoo they provided. Smells good!

The thermostat works well, and they restock the toothpaste/shampoo/conditioner/body soap/body lotion regularly. There's also free Wifi. One of the better hotel rooms I've been to.
