We stayed there for 2 nights in mid December and got upgraded to a bigger room (extra large) on 10/F. We are very pleased with the room -- fashionable faux industrial decor, lots of metal juxtaposed with beech-colored wood, separate toilet and shower booth, an oversized couch to lounge on. The only down side is the rather small window that opens to a covered atrium... and the styling of the room is a bit too cold to my liking... It can use some softer elements at times IMO. The couch needs more cushions to be comfy to the seaters. It's located upstairs from Eslite Xinmending branch and you can actually take an elevator from the store to your room (with a keycard). There's lots of late night shopping in this area. The breakfast is excellent with lots of choices and the well-lit and airy dining room doubles as a library. Service is friendly and warm. Would love to come back again.

Excellent service from all staffs... we had a wonderful stay. Breakfast served is good, lot of choices. However have to be there before 10am as the staffs will be start clearing the food. Room is very clean and big, special thanks to the female room cleaner at 7th Floor, she is very friendly and caring. Within 10 minutes walk from Ximending Subway station. Reception at 5th floor, laundry room at 6th floor. Hotel is located above Eslite store. Surely will recommend this hotel to those who want a wonderful stay in Taipei.

It is called a boutique hotel and indeed the rooms are stylish, but not too large. The location of the hotel is perfect. The breakfast was excellent even for Europeans. Very convenient for us that they have quite a good Restaurant on the 5th floor. There is also the reception

Stayed in Amba Taipei Ximending from 23/12/17 to 30/12/17 when we checked in we asked the front desk officer if we could change our queen size bedroom to 2 double bed the officer said she will try her best. Since it was Xmas time the hotel was fully booked the weren’t any rooms available but managed to get our room changed the next day. All good except that our room wasn’t vacuumed even though I rang front desk to inform them that our room was not vacuumed. The hotel is really convenient located to the night market and train station.

Towards the end of our Taipei trip, we stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. Having stayed the previous nights at Amba Songshan, we were welcomed by the same brand of friendly and efficient service. Right after check-in, I accidentally broke one of the reading lamps but it was quickly fixed that same evening. Breakfast was not as wide compared to their Songshan property but it was still hearty. We just missed eating our muesli! We got an offer to upgrade for a fee to a Balcony Room, took it and was happy with our decision. With the added space, we did our exercise inside the room since the hotel did not have a gym. Will definitely recommend this hotel as a base for shopping in Taipei.

This was my first time to stay in this hotel... it was booked by my friend via agent in HK.... the location is good as it is located in center of Ximanting....When i first got in the room... its spacious.... very clean... the quality of toiletries they use is good... service is good... the breakfast buffet is impressed.. I would recommend my friends to stay in this hotel if they visit Taipei...

This is our first time staying at the hotel and we stayed for 4D 3N. The hotel is pretty new. The staffs were friendly (esp. the big built guy with round glasses at the front desk *sorry for not noticing your name). Everything was great. The only improvement is more hooks in the bathroom will be great.

We are family of 23 and stayed here from Dec 19-23, our age ranges from 4 to 85 years old. This hotel was very ideal to us since after every tour around Taiwan, we can do shopping and eat street foods. Ximending night market is just at the hotel’s doorstep. Mrt Station is just 2 blocks away about 10 minutes walk. The reception is on the 5th floor. The room is big with 2 double comfortable beds. Separate shower and toilet. Very clean and modern room. Breakfast is buffet with varied dishes. Will definitely stay here again.

Me and friend stayed at Amba Taipei Ximending and eventhough it was just for one night, the stay was really pleasant. First of all the staff were nice and helpful and we were upgraded to a larger 'Hollywood' Amba room where there was a small living room area with a sofa bed and a dining table. My friend loved the ambiance of the hotel, it was young and modern. Morning breakfast was included with the room and it was delicious: there were both western food and Chinese style breakfast food. The location was unbeatable, right in the heart of Ximending, convenient for shopping till late night. Highly recommended.

We stayed at Amba Taipei Ximending and were happy with the hotel, which is located in a popular shopping district with lots on interesting local eateries and shops. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. The hotel staff - both the reception desk and the service staff were very helpful and cheerful. The buffet breakfast was just about right with a good mix of local Taiwanese items as well as international items. We hope to stay there again when we next visit Taipei. Thank you very much for the pleasant experience.
