great breakfast, the room is clean, good english staff. But no bell service as they have concierge.
The lobby is on 5/F, we take the luggages from G/f to lobby floor and hen back to room, the staff asking for the baggage service as we have four pieces

Room Tip: higher floor is much better

This is a new and chic hotel at the centre and probably the best in Ximendeng.
There is a special wording design on every item with "ba".
Breakfast is just good. I chose this hotel because 4-people room is available.
I can't find 4 people room in other hotels.
However only one closet in the room is a bit lacking.
The rain shower is good. However only one chair in a 4 people room is not enough.
The design slippers can be taken home which is good.

Had a wonderful stay at Amba Ximending. It is a short walk to MRT with lots of interesting shops open day and night for us to browse. The room was odd shaped which was a pity as the closet space was very small which is my main complaint. There is no sitting area so to speak. Nonetheless, the room was large enough for two twin beds plus one baby cot. The beds were comfortable, toilets rather small but clean, and showers were strong. The breakfast spread with east and west offerings was good. The rice with mince pork dish was simple and delicious.

This is the 3rd stay in Amba for this year. I was stay in large king room for the last two times including last time for my engagement.

Surprise with an upgraded extra large king room. The room is big and comfortable, may be a bit bit for couple...

This time the room is a bit noisy due to the child in nearby room. The lighting intensity for the extra large king room is not very ideal. For large king room is perfect. So may be a re-arrange of the floor standing lamp is needed if you want to increase the light intensity of a specific area.

Overall is good. I am happy to stay there again when I got chance in the future.

Room Tip: large kind room is enough for normal couples.

Location not exactly the heart of XimenDing. It took us ~10-15min walk from the MRT station which is not very desirable becoz of the busy crowd and hot weather.

We stayed here for 2 nights and were upgraded from Large Room to Extra Large Room (front desk claimed that Large Rooms were full). Extra Large Room is very spacious which could actually have party there =)

Room:
- Separated toilet, sink, shower (no bathing), not very convenient indeed.
- Amenities are a bit dusty.
- Twin beds too close, indeed are side-by-side
- No TV inside the sitting room (only in the bedroom)
- It is also disappointed that there is only 17 TV channels. Actually it is an internet TV (a small one) but no guide was provided. It took us more than 1hr to figure out how to browse youtube with TV remote. I suggest traveler bringing videos in flash drive/ external hard disk for entertainment.
- No window

Other services:
- Breakfast is great. Must visit their restaurant & bar, they are specially renovated. Dining utensils are lab beakers, etc
- You can opt for transport service (Toyata Camry) from hotel to the airport, it take ~NT$1200 but the driver drove dangerously... However, Bell boy didn't help porter our luggage!
- front desk could arrange late check out up to 12nn

Room Tip: Check their website for early bird discount. Gorgeous extra large room which could actually accommo...
