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!!!
Newest and hottest hotel in Ximending!”
Amba Taipei Ximending is connected to the new "Eslite mall". Within the Amba, there is restaurant, cafes, music bar and exhibition space, which means you literally do not need to step out of the building to enjoy all sort of entertainment. There is also free access self-served laundry. The rooms are huge with simple yet modern interior design. Amba Taipei Ximending is the hottest new spot that combines style, comfort and sustainability together.
Fabulous Hotel! No regrets! ”
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!
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.
Very pleasant stay in Amba Hotel Ximending”
A very pleasant stay in Amba Taipei Ximending. This was the second time that I stayed in Amba hotel. This time I had a surprise as I had free upgrade to extra large room. Staff in this hotel were very attentive and helpful. There was also free internet access. If I stay in Taipei in future, I will probably choose to stay in this hotel again.
Chic hotel located in the heart of Ximending”
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.
Great Service and a lovely decent hotel”
The hotel staffs are friendly and helpful. They are always forthcoming to give travel advises for travel enquires.The hotel has also prepare handy printouts of Taipei clubbing area for their residents and places of interest at further locations upon request.They also provide simplified maps of Ximending which is very informative for 1st timers at Taipei. Overall experiences with Amba Taipei Ximending was extremely great.
Perfect hotel with a perfect location”
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Amba Taipei. The location of the hotel was perfect and within the pedestrian zone of Ximending; the staff were always courteous and helpful; and the room that we got was perfectly sized. Just a perfect hotel if it is your first visit to Taipei and a great place to set up base to visit this exciting and vibrant city!
Fantastic Weekend Getaway”
I had a superb time staying at Amba Taipei Ximending. It is not only strategically located at Ximending but also the services and experience was fantastic. I had a great time and definitely consider staying at Amba Taipei Ximending again.
Comfortable, stylish hotel located in Busy Ximendi”
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.
New hotel, funky interior, good location.”
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.
Affordable, friendly and attentive staff, 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!!! :))
Fun trendy hotel in a trendy shopping district”
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.
Wonderful accommodation during my taipei trip”
I had a wonderful and enjoyable stay at Amba taipei ximending because the exterior/interior look of it is fresh new and well designed, i am really impressed by it. I love the cleanliness and the layout of the room. In future, definitely staying there whenever i travel to taipei.
Amba Taipei Ximending was a great hotel! Staffs are very warm and welcoming. Although the room was small, but it felt roomy and design was very efficient. I would definitely recommend this hotel to family and friends and will be a happy return customer!

Enjoyable and comfortable ”
Very good experience. Staff was very attentive and polite. The room was spacious with a huge bed and separate toilet and shower which proved to be convenient. The shower was awesome, probably the biggest shower head I've ever seen. Location was very good as well. I would definitely return to Amba Ximending should I visit Taipei in the future. A very pleasant stay overall.
