Taipei vacation

I thought this hotel wasn't bad for the price. They provide breakfast, and it's pretty good. The room itself was clean, although the bathroom...well, it was surrounded by a glass wall that was frosted for the most part, but in parts of the wall, you could actually see through the bathroom, which I thought was weird, even though it was only looking through the sink area. The chair that came with the desk in my room was just a small, plastic seat, so that was uncomfortable whenever I was working on my laptop from there. I also noticed the walls are thin in that place because I could actually hear the water running whenever someone was using the bathroom in the next room (ex. shower, toilet, etc.). Plus, if the people next door are talking loudly, you can hear it easily... Otherwise, it wasn't a bad place to stay in. The subway station is about a 10 minute walk--not too far away. The staff is friendly and helpful, and they can speak English.

Nice hotel, not-so-great location

I booked this hotel (Ambience) because it had several glowing reviews from several online travel sites. The hotel had mixed up the reservation type (they thought I had a std room, while I booked a elite room [...]), but the staff quickly corrected this without any hassles. The hotel itself was clean and enjoyable and staff spoke very good English, was friendly, and responsive to requests. The only complaints I have would be that the carpet was dirty and the location was not very convenient for mass transit and not much to do in walking distance. This was a 3 - 3 1/2 star hotel at best, in my opinion, not the 4-stars that most travel sites have it categorized.

Taking the taxi to the nearest MRT station or Taipei main station will run you about $70-$85 NT. Might be worth the 10-15 min walk, especially if there's more than one in your party.

OK, too much light

The hotel suffers from some light pollution, light comes into the room from the bathroom (glass door!) Bed comfortable, free films, fridge and tea and coffee. Breakfast OK, not a huge selection for western taste, but adequate. Chairs in the lounge area are TINY - a human cannot sit on them! Great staff, very very helpful. Location fair, a bit of a walk to find it. Room is sort of all-white, modern and minamilistic.

great location for seafood restaurants

lots of good seafood restaurants on same street, along with a "snack" street nearby. walk to closest subway is a little far after a long day (~15min). breakfast was pretty decent and staff was very friendly. free self-service laundry was extremely useful. overall, a great stay!

Taipei 5/21/10

We were in Taipei for my wife to speak at Asia University. We spent time with friends and traveled to Taichung. The hotel and the staff were very nice, friendly and extremely helpful. This was on a par with other trips. With the esception of the location, the hotel filled our requirements perfectly.

Shopping tip: Short drive from hotel

If you are into shopping, while in Taipei, Taipei 101 and the surrounding area has an incredible amount of shopping availabilities for all budgets, though mostly upscale.

Nice, clean, comfortable

I liked the atmosphere at ambience overall. The rooms are clean and comfortable and furniture fairly new. The design of the bathroom is unique and modern. The room is small but the price is reasonable and breakfast and afternoon tea were included. Overall, I enjoyed my stay and would definitely consider ambience in the future.

A very good hotel in a lot of ways..

This hotel is fantastic. I think we got a good dead so it wssn't expensive. Staff mostly very courteous. Delicious breakfast, and they provide afternoon tea(sandwich, snack, juice, coffee) everyday for free which is definitely appreciated. Modern, very spacious room which is different to most hotels of this price range in Taiwan/Asia. Great large shower. Very strong wi-fi signal. Free laundry. Only downside is the location, which isn't close to that many stores and requires a decent-ish walk to nearest MRT station which in the middle of summer could mean some sweat. But overall, very thoughtful amenities in a lot of ways, can't fault the product whatsoever.
