Stayed here for 4D/3N. Our room was clean, bed comfortable and with basic amenities.
The hotel has a modern look, to cater to hip travellers.

Our room came with a breakfast and was buffet style. Only comment is that the food items/choices hardly changed during our stay. Hope they could improve this.

It is located right in the heart of ximending (harajuku of taipei) and there are many food stalls, restaurants and shops nearby. The MRT stations is also within walking distance.

We enjoyed our stay here and definitely recommending it.

I'm a sucker for clean room and amba hotel certainly impress me over this.
Hotel room is clean and spacious.. No dust in the room and the toilet was clean too. Staying above the shopping mall was a plus point for me too.
But... I give Zero Point towards the hotel staff! I arrived at the hotel around 8am and request for early check in but the room was fully book therefore we have no choice to come back after 3pm (we understand this part ).But We ask the staff for breakfast area n etc but we received a cold reply and also no addition advise was given to us after the procedure was done. He just turn around and do his stuff. My first time encounter with a cold faceTaiwanese .
We came back at 7pm to check in and hopping for a friendlier staff but sad to say , they are happier talking among themselves . When they turn to us, cold faces again.
I'm still staying here and I love the room but not the staff. Therefore we are happy that we don't have to walk past the reception area. We can access our room striaight from L1.

I'm shocked because everyone received awesome service but not on me!

Stayed at Amba for 3 nights with a 2yr old toddler and husband. I expected that the kind bed would b sufficient for us. Hotel desk called to ask if we would need a baby cot for the little one. They even brought a portable toilet seat for her. Little girl was happy and so were we! A truly servce oriented hotel.

Location in ximending was also a definite plus

It is the first time a hotel's theme actually made me laugh, From the moment i step into the lift, then from the reception to the room. Almost everything are associated with "-ba", for example Reception=WenBa(问吧), Restaurent=ChiBa(吃吧), even the Slippers in the room is call ChuanBa(穿吧). They just can't stop cheering me up. (of cause you will have to understand chinese language in order to appreciate the efforts put together by the Amba Hotel Management). These simple things actually reduced my fatigue from the long hours flight.

Most importantly their staffs were friendly & helpful, the room was simple, clean & tidy, and the hotel location is almost at the heart of Xi Men Ding (your ladies no need to walk too far for shopping). Anyway the hotel is also part of the Eslie Book Store/Shopping Mall building, so you are surrounded by all kind of shops from the moment you step out of the hotel.

Besides all the good feedback I have provided above, there are still one short coming of the hotel room. The wall is kinda thin, I can hear quite clearly when people walking & talking from the corridor & room next door.

But having said that I will still come back to this hotel when i visit Taipei again, also to recommend to my friends.

My wife and I was at Amba for a night last week and I was impressed with my stay. Location wise, it is not far from Ximending Metro exit 6, very walkable. Much to our delight, We were upgraded to a large room upon check in as the hotel was fully booked. The room was pleasantly
simple and functional, beginning with a hall with a small table ( ala dining), wash basin and separate toilet and shower room. Down the hall is the bedroom Sith a king sized bed and a big flat couch, large enough to fully lie down. No frills and very comfortable. The hotel has fast free WiFi.

On the 6th floor, there is a laundry room with 2 washing machines for those who want to do laundry but it lacks a dryer. Breakfast served on 5th floor, where the reception is, and the spread is not bad. Definitely will return to Amba if we stay at Ximending.
