We stayed in Amba ximending during our stay November, which was an excellent time to travel, weather was dry and cooling- thoroughly enjoyable.
The hotel is actually within a shopping mall and located about 7min walk from the nearest ximending station. Not a far walk as you would be surrounded with lots of shops and restaurants along the way.
Hotel staff spoke fluent English and were very polite and helpful. Overall great service from the reception staff. The interior design of the hotel were really funky and artsy from the reception area to the bar and dining to the room corridors. Really cute!
The rooms in Amba were of a minimalistic design, brightly lit and very clean. We were impressed with the slippers provided as there were of good quality which can be taken back with you. Amenities provided were of a local brand sold and can be bought at the reception area if you like.
Despite Amba being within a shopping mall it had made an effort to design the rooms with a window that overlooks the foyer and dining area downstairs. This made for a nice design.
We would definitely be coming back the next time.
