Chic hotel right in Ximending with great buffet breakfast”
We accidentally discovered this hotel four years ago when looking up breakfast places in Taipei. Then we just fell in love with its Taiwanese and Western style buffet breakfast in a fashionable bookstore-style space on the 5th floor. Four years later, we decided to stay here for the first time. Our "extra-large twin room" is on the top (10th) floor. It's spacious, quiet, and clean (no sewage smell!). Though the window has only a limited courtyard view, we had a comfortable stay. There's enough counter space -- a long table, round dining table, two chairs, and one leather reading chair. I especially enjoyed the high-quality shampoo/conditioner, tea bags which you can also buy, and complimentary water bottles (in a mini fridge) which are supplemented every day. Brandnew designer flipflops (you can take home) are a plus. The bed and linen are very comfortable. All staff is courteous. It'd be perfect, though, if there were a bidet in the toilet and place to hang towels.
Bad Sound proofing in room”
I can hear my neighbours talking and sounds from TV. I can hear clearly people walking about in the room upstairs my room. My bathrobe was not changed and had stainson it. Bad experience
Great location, spacious room”
Location is great, in the middle of Ximending area and the cinema street. Food restaurants, cinemas and other stores are just outside. Lobby is located at the 5th floor of a department store. Rooms are spacious, included breakfast is good for the money, there is also a laundry area at the 6th floor should you need it. I would say the rooms are accessible for elderly. Street outside is closed to vehicle traffic at night and weekends, something to take note of when leaving or arriving via taxi.
this is very good location ximending. the breakfast pretty good not as many choices but still clean n fresh. the rooms are very modern. the staff speaks english very well. they have free laundry. the only complain little far to the subway.
Convenient shopping location; walking distance to MTR”
Had a "Smart" room. Toilet and bathroom separated and open concept wash basin were all boon and bane. And the TV mounted on a side wall of the bed risks getting hit on the head as you get out of bed. Position for watching TV was also restrictive. But ample number of TV channels compensated for this. Buffet breakfast was not wide spread but sufficient to start your day. Traffic closure at certain times can disrupt your transport plans so need to take note. The best advantage is the proximity to Ximending shopping and eateries. Only if the stores open earlier than 11

Convenient and Great Place for Muslim Travellers ”
The staff are super friendly, breakfast for Muslim guests are prepared separately... a great effort by Amba Hotel to cater for different needs of their guests. Interesting decor throughout the hotel and most importantly it is in the middle of most happening place in Taipei
Great Stay in Taipei”

Wonderful hotel experience ”
Good location and good service. I stayed in Taiwan for my birthday. The hotel give me the surprising birthday gift.
Best hotel in my travel history”
Every famous food&drinks were avilable within walking distance! The transportation was sooooooo convinient. This place is placed in heart of ximending! The only downside is not many faculty within hotel&the gowns weren’t replaced daily. But the location/kindness of staffs covers it all! Hope u get to stay here too!
Excellent location, the hotel is located in the heart of Ximending about 5 to 8 mins walk to Ximen station. The smart room was clean, cozy and comfortable. The staffs are friendly and approachable too. If you are a solo traveler (holiday or business trip) and don't like big hotel rooms. The Amba smart room is perfect for you! I enjoyed my stay and will definitely come back to Amba again.
Good for family with young kids”
Amba is about 5mins walking distance to the main walking street of Ximending, which in my opinion, is good as it wont be too noisy or rowdy at night for sleeping. The room is also spacious and comes with a big table, good for family with young kids to place milk bottles, utensils etc. As the hotel forbids cooking in room with portable cooker, they kindly provide us with porridge every morning free for our baby. Thank you for the kind gesture! Room is clean, water pressure is good for bathing, drainage system is good, towels are white (not yellowish). Nothing more to ask for!
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!!!
Great location in Ximending - will definitely go there again. One thing to note, car can not pull up to the hotel. You need to walk in a pedestrianised zone in the evening to get there, but just around the corner. Not so convenient if it is raining!
Execellent location, Good vibes hotel ”
My friend do stay here before and strongly recommend me to stay at this hotel. Turn out the whole stay is quite pleasant..... like the location right at the ximending. Hotel is trendy, convenient, Eco-friendly as well as helpful staff.
Location was perfect. Really enjoyed our stay. Especially liked that the room was very well lit rather than dim so it wasn't eerie. Love the layout of the room. Super cosy. Only downside was that there was no gym within the hotel.
Located right in the center of Ximending”
The hotel is surrounded by shopping mall, restaurant, pub, gay sauna, gay gym (Taipei's famous gay gym "World Gym" is just opposite the building. This hotel is definitely for you if you are a nightlife animal.
Fantastic location, great service!! ”
Travelled with my teenage girl, we shared a Twin Loft which as spacious for the two of us. The hotel staff were great! Thank you very much for the awesome service! Location is right in the heart of Ximending and the train station is within walking distance. We'll be back soon!!
What I really loved about it was the location. I wish they had more vegan breakfast options. Adding a soy milk (or any plant-based milk) option to cereal or oatmeal perhaps? All we had were fruits and bread.
