Pretty comfortable”

Artsy, Modern, Clean

Boyfriend and I stayed in Amba for 2D1N as we stopped-over at Ximending. I heard of Amba from some friends and most of them commented that the hotel quality is not bad. It's not difficult to locate Amba in Ximending as long as you get the road name right, but the entrance is not obvious. You'll need to pass by their bar at Level 1 before you're able to identify the lift lobby. You'll need to pay a deposit before you check-in. It will be returned to you after check-out. The room we've gotten is pretty big. The interior is modern and it's comfy. Only for the toilets - the toilet bowl and shower head are separated into two small rooms. Sink is outside the two rooms. My boyfriend didn't like that idea. If you're looking into an all-in-one toilet, this hotel may not be for you. Other than that, the bed is SUPER COMFY. We've gotten the king-sized bed. I really love their branding. Each of their room item has the Amba branding. They even allow you to bring home the room slippers. Sizing wasn't right for both of us but we just brought them back as souvenir :) They do not provide breakfast at all but it wasn't an issue for us. It's not difficult to find breakfast in Ximending. A note: If you're going to find Ah Zhong Mee Sua from the hotel, you'll need to identify the directions accurately before going. It's not really prominent to find. You may find the price a little higher than other 3-star hotels in Ximending, but this hotel is considered a bigger one in Ximending and it's comfortable to stay in. If you're able to spend a little more, this can be the option for you. Getting a cab isn't difficult. There should be ample of cabs near the hotel. Overall, pretty good stay!

Clean Spacious and worth the money”

I travelled to Taipei and stayed in Amba Taipei Ximending for 5 night. We book the large twin room. My mother and I love the room, we stayed at lvl 9, it is clean, quiet with simple decoration. We love the size of the room, with large twin bed (basically 2 double bed) it was very comfortable. The wash room and shower room are separated which we love! Love the wooden flooring, so much cleaner than carpet!!! Mosaic tiles the moment you entered the room, so are the toilet and shower room. We love how the room is designed. Clean, simple without large bulky furnitures. The hotel is right at the center of Ximending, making your shopping trip so much convenient. You dont even have to worry about easting and shopping because they are all within 5 minutes walking distance. Hotel breakfast is delicious, but 5 days with same kind of food can be a little boring, hopefully Amba will consider more varieties, otherwise we have no complaint about the food. LOVE IT and WILL STAY AGAIN!!!

Fantastic Room With Great breakfast and Locations ”

Pros : Located In Central Ximending is easy to access foods, shops & the Taipei Metro. Staff was all helpful, courteous, and bubbly to tourist. However there was a Electric maintenance on January 7 from 12.30am to 4.30am . That Agoda did not informed us, which we found out when we arrived at Amba Hotel. the main power supply to all hotels room was cut during the maintenance hour we were without air cons or lights. But we felt the hotel did their best by coming up with contingency plans, by giving out portable fans to reduce the uncomfortable situation to all tourist for their stay. For that we were still pleased with our stay overall definitely we will come back to stay with Amba Hotel should we come back to Taipei for our vacations in near future.

Fabulous Hotel! No regrets! ”

Refer to review :

We stayed in Amba for a week recently, it was raining all week due to the typhoon so I am glad we made the right choice of accommodation! A hotel in a shopping center! PROS: 1. Great Location ( You will have to walk 8 mins or so to Ximen MRT station) 2. Great Service Staff ( They go all out to serve you and provided detailed information of tourist attractions around Taipei) 3. Rooms are spacious* (MUJI style) 4. Safe provided 5. Great looking and functional hotel toiletries (Bathroom slippers, Ginger Soap etc) 6. TV can be connected to the internet (Youtube, Facebook) 7. Free Wi-Fi 8. Interesting lobby and resturant 7. 7-11 nearby Cons: *The whole concept of the room gives you a minimalist feel to it, like what you would get at MUJI. Less is more. 1. Toilet, Bathroom and Sink are separated. (Customers who prefers the traditional layout of the toilet and bathroom together got to brace themselves) 2. Not enough shelving in the bathroom to put toiletries and clothes. (Install additonal shelving in the bathing area) 3. Sink is located outside the toilets. (Mine was in front of the bed) 3. Cupboards (Space is a problem) 4. We experience a few private events during our stay (Evening, Morning) therefore the hotel's restaurant and bar couldn't be accessed. This may be troublesome for family with kids who may want to dine in the hotel. Overall experience. It is not your typical hotel that you expect to stay in, after all this hotel was designed by Taiwan creative artists. It may look like a hostel to some but personally I felt it was really going against the traditional hotel concepts. (in a good way!) Think arty farty sort of concept with Japanese style of rooms. (Minimal). I would stay there again when I return to Taipei! I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff in Amba Taipei. The good service and work you have provided during our stay!

Great”

This is my second time staying at Amba Taipei Ximending, last time was 2014. The place is still in very good condition and the staffs are still very friendly and helpful. I booked a 2-bed twin room, the room is spacious enough, all the facilities are great, if I have to be picky then would be the pillows are too soft if you like hard pillows. Location is great, lots of great food and shopping around the area especially it is connected to the Eslite Mall. Would stay here again for sure.

Chic hotel located in the heart of Ximending”

Chic Design, Centrally Located, Clean and Comfortable

Amba Hotel is a chic and young design, modern hotel which bear the concept of minimalist style. This hotel is centrally located in the heart of Ximending, one of the most happening districts in Taipei. Amba Hotel provides new and comfortable hotel room for a good accommodation choice. This hotel is a perfect choice for couple and single traveler. Free wifi is an advantage. Lovely breakfast from the choice of western and eastern culinary. Attentive and polite staffs. Basically this hotel is top notch and there is no complaint about this hotel, but if I were being picky, then the rather small room size and the late check in time (3pm, although it’s quite a norm for most hotels in Taipei to check in at this hour) are those few things that I am not satisfy with.

Fun trendy hotel in a trendy shopping district”

Location, Spacious room, great lounge

I was pleasantly surprised with my visit to Amba. The streets surrounding it cater to 18-35 year olds but there are many sites for older guests as well. The MTR station is within 10 minutes and you are one stop from the Taipei main station. taxis are everywhere in Taipei. I had a room on the 8th floor (810)facing the main street and I never heard any noise except a band that setup for a mid-day concert. Great open internet. The rooms are typical for a European hotel. Twin beds pushed together with individual duvet covers. Toilet and shower are in separate rooms with the sink out in the room. this really is convenient when traveling with friends. AC was very cool even on a 33C day. Laundry room is free of charge if you have time to do your own laundry. The price seemed a little high until you realized your paying for location, location, location.

Affordable, friendly and attentive staff, cosy”

Clean and cosy

We stayed in a single room. The room is clean and neat. Tho a little small, it was cosy enough for the 2 of us. Staff is also very attentive and friendly. Attended to all our needs in like minutes! Amazing !! Though this hotel cost slightly higher than nearby boutique hotels, I feel that it's worth it as the hotel is new and hence the facilities and room condition is all in tip top condition!!!!also, it is situated right in the middle of ximending which makes everyday so convenient !!! had a pleasant Stay at Amba Taipei ximending !! Will recommend!!! :))

New hotel, funky interior, good location.”

Clean and comfortable room with convenient shopping.

this hotel opens officially on the 23rd of feb 2012, so it was very new during our stay. we got a free upgrade to an extra large room, which is basically a suite with two full sized sofas and a coffee table. if it is within your budget i recommend getting the bigger sized room, but the medium room is quite spacious as well. nice touches with the small things such as proper slippers, lots of space to unpack and interesting decoration in the lobby and even the tv in the room(surf the internet on it if you wish!). i highly recommend staying in amba. it is right in the middle of ximending, so lots of small shops to walk around; explore the alleys and eat the road side snacks. amba probably has teething issues to iron out since it is so new, such as slow service at the live cooking stations at breakfast, but the staff are friendly and will take the effort to make your stay a comfortable one.

Comfortable, stylish hotel located in Busy Ximendi”

Location, Comfort and Affordability

My friend and I stayed in Amba Taipei Ximending for 2 nights and check in was fuss free. Room is designed in quite a unique way with the recycling of some furniture to be re-use in interesting concept - for example, a chest container was used as the bedside table and the drum container was also being utilized as a bedside table. Toilet and shower are kept separate, ensuring that one does not have to wait for the availability of the toilet if the other party is showering. Location wise - it probably more than a 5 minutes walk from the ximen station (unless i come out from the wrong exit)but it likely less than 10 minutes walk. Walking through ximending is not a hardship and the entire walk consists of shops and eateries, making it quite a comfortable walk. There was no problem hailing a cab from Amba hotel to Taoyuan airport and the entire ride should cost no more than $900 NT.

Love AMBA! ”

AMBA is definitely the choice if you want to stay in Ximending. Food and shopping is just at your doorstep! I can go back to hotel to drop my loots and come down again to continue anytime. Loved the spacious and clean room, laundry room, friendly service and they even have table soccer to entertain the kids at the lobby too. Ximen station is also just a few minutes walk away, convenient for travelling via their train station. AMBA is definitely my choice if I go Ximending again.

A perfect place to stay in Ximending!”

Great service, cool rooms and location, location, location!

Stayed for 5 nights. It is right in the middle of the Ximending shopping area but room are on upper floors so it very quiet. The hotel has a really cool, simple, minimalist style...but still comfortable. The bathroom area is a really nice design with a separate shower room and toilet. With a big bench and was basin out side in the room. Is perfect for couples/singles but might be a little awkward if traveling with friends or other family. There was a curtain to close off this area though. Considering the price the breakfast buffet is really good. Best omelette have had in ages. Restaurant area also has a really great design. Reception staff are really helpful and friendly, even at 4am when I was checking out. Good and strong wifi. 5minute walk to Ximen MRT, which gives you easy access to anywhere in Taipei. Thoroughly recommend this hotel. I will certainly be staying there next trip to Taipei
