Very good”

Among 5-star hotels, Ambassador is affordable yet it's a bit for from Zhongshan district. Most of the staffs are very kind, but it's quite hard to communicate in English. About room condition, when people talked each other, I could hear the voices from other rooms, which was a bit annoying at night. I called the reception about this, but something made me feel that I was the problem. If you want to stay near Zhongshan district with quite affordable price, I would recommend this hotel, but sorry to say, I don't think I would try again.

Great Location”

Cheerful & helpful staffs. We felt very safe, because there were always many staffs at the front door and at the reception counter. Every where is very clean.

Very comfortable and quiet poolside room. I would go back to Ambassador Taipei Hotel again. Definitely a must recommendation place to my friends, because it is near the train station and the bus stop for Taoyuan International Airport is just right in front of the hotel. And great tasting restaurants are every where.

Great public areas, small rooms”

restaurants, staff, location

This was my second trip staying at the Ambassador, Taipei. Overall I thought it was a very nice hotel, fantastic service, incredible public spaces, very good restaurants. That said, they is nothing special about the guest rooms, the are generally quite small and relatively spartan, though clean well maintained. The greatest disappointment was breakfast in the executive lounge. I ate there three mornings and the selection and variety was pretty minimal, but worse, every warm dish I had on each day was cold, not less than warm, cold. While I may return, I will likely try another hotel in the area.

Old yet cozy and convenient hotel”

Friendly staff, convenient location, cozy room

I have to say that the hotel is pretty old yet well-maintained. Staff are generally friendly and helpful. It's only 5-minute walking distance from the nearest MRT station, and in the area, there're many restaurants / bakeries. Swimming pool is a square shape and you can really swim. The gym and swimming pool are never crowded. Overall, I had comfortable stay in the Ambassador Hotel Taipei.

comfortable, centrally located, friendly staff

My husband and I had an excellent stay at the Ambassador hotel. It is lovely and clean, comfy, centrally located, nice sized rooms and near to a subway station. It is a bit pricey but you definitely get what you pay for. Only annoying thing was that there are only 2 elevators, so during busy times you have to wait too long! Otherwise a great place to stay

Great Location with Updated Executive Rooms”

Service was incredible in both Chinese and English

Somehow, this hotel was overbooked, so we were upgraded to an executive twin instead of a standard twin. They could have tried to force a double room on us instead, but were accommodating to the fact that we had two travelers who did not want to share a bed. The executive room we stayed in was spacious and updated. The one drawback was that the window was directly facing the wall of another building. It wasn't much of an issue for us, but maybe something to look out for if you are particular about your view. The location of the hotel is great. Very close to an MRT station and in a nice area of Taipei.

Great Location and Great Service”

The hotel is within walking distance to 2 MRT stations(Shuanglian and Zhongshan). It has many cafes and restaurants around. It is also within walking distance to a night market (Lingxia). The other famous night markets are all within 20 mins MRT rides away. The service of the hotel is also very good. The breakfast has a good variety, catering mostly to the chinese and japanese customers. Room is relatively big with good free wifi. Though my room faced the main road, there is hardly any sound. Only minor displeasure was that the pillow was a bit too soft. And it was unfortunate that the swimming pool was temporary out of service.

stay at Ambassador Hotel, Taipei. October 2015”

1. cleanliness 2. conceige service

We requested twin beds in a premier room. A double bed was provided. The double bed proved to be of an antiquated type which meant that every movement made by my husband or me disrupted the other's sleep/rest, to the extent that we both had no sleep on the first night, making us cross. Upon request for twin beds, we were told all premier rooms have only double beds! and only a twin regular room would be available some 3 days later. This was not satisfactory to us, having already paid around £120 per night for 8 nights. After some argument with the receptionist who consulted the manager who did not bother to intervene it was agreed that a temporary bed would be provided at no extra cost. This meant that the extra space we specially paid for in a Premier room lost its meaning, as the temporary bed took up much space. We would have been better off (in terms of sleep and cost) in a regular room which cost a lot less! This was the third time we stayed at this hotel. In the two previous occasions, we had regular rooms with twin beds which we found satisfactory. The new staff/management at this hotel were less welcoming and friendly than before. We are now considering using other hotels in the same location. Other than this, I must say that the cleaner was excellent and full marks are given to her for cleanliness and cleaning. I might add it is very odd that an hotel which markets itself as 5* is not able to provide twin beds in a more expensive room and that the double bed that was provided on this occasion was not up to the international standard expected of a 5* hotel. I rate the Ambassador as a 4*. Taipei was the final destination in our recent itinerary which included Hong Kong and Japan. Now, the Granvia at Kyoto is a true 5* affair; the room was quiet despite being in the midst of Kyoto Station, the bed provided was bliss to sleep on. We are regular travellers; we know what we are talking about.

Classic, Spacious but Average Hotel”

Good Resturant Food

Hotel is quite convient, spacious room and pretty good service. The design and things in the room is classical or out-of fashion but quite well maintained. Nice and comfortable bed but pillows are too soft. Hotel stay is slightly above average. Most things are within expectations of a 5 stars hotel. However I get surprise when on the first day stay the hotel does not have instant coffee placed in the room but other days have. Another shock is one of the day the bedsheet used has holes. Simply can't believe it that a 5 stars hotel will used bedsheets with holes. Where is their quality check before the place the bedsheet. Or is there any review of wear and tear items. The staff did not tell you where you can obtain the ice cubes if you need it. You can hear the corridor noise. The whole night you will experience intermitent noise from the fridge that may affect your sleep. Those plus points is good and nice resturant food and convience to train station. Plus plus to the friend hotel lobby staff.
