We stayed 3 nights at Amba Taipei Ximending. We booked the medium room without breakfast and got a good clean room on the 6th floor (602). We arrived very early in the morning (8am) and our room wasn't ready so we left our luggages at the concierge. We check-in at around 1pm when the room was ready. The room was clean and spacious and got nice design. We think giving thongs instead of normal slippers was a really chick idea. The hotel itself situated right in the middle of Ximending so once we came down from our room we can get food, shopping, entertainment straight away! The hotel also have free washing machine and dryer for guests to use which was quite surprising for us! We were actually looking for a hole to insert coins for a while before finding out that it can be switch on without paying lol! The staffs at front desk were also nice and speak good english. Checkin and checkout procedure was fast and easy. There was also money exchanger at the hotel, and the exchange rates were displayed in Lego which was really cool. Overall, we love the hotel and will be back again in the future.
Stayed in Amba Taipei Ximending for 5 nights one week ago. Location is excellent - right smack in the middle of the shopping district with a variety of dining choices nearby, pharmacy, convenient store, and within walking distance to Ximen train stop. Standard room size is adequate for 2 adults although toilet and shower are not enclosed together as how typical bathrooms are. Housekeeping could be improved as coffee mugs were not cleaned or replaced daily (unless otherwise requested) but room is kept clean and tidy. Decent breakfast buffet with mostly Asian fare but enough variety. Dined at Chiba (in-house restaurant) and enjoyed the Truffle Mushroom Pizza. Hotel staff were very helpful in arranging dining reservations and transport by providing us cards with English to Mandarin directions to wherever we wanted to go. Made going around much easier. Overall a pleasant experience. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend this to family and friends visiting Taipei.
The hotel is spacious, clean and has great amenities. The breakfast buffet is amazing! I love what I got for the price. The hotel is situated in a busy and convenient place. However, it's smack in the middle of Ximending market, where it's always busy and lots of smoking around you. Overall, I was pleased with the stay as the convenience and amenities were great! I would stay here again.
Stayed for 1 night. Pluses: - good location (in the heart of Ximen area); - newly renovated (or new); - good service and helpful staff; - breakfast is ok. Minuses: - rooms are super white - feels like hospital; would be great to have some pieces of art or ant colors touches in the room; - noise isolation is so-so - can hear outdoor and hallway; - it is not very dark in the morning - prepare sleeping mask; - price/quality seems doesnt match. Doesnt feel like 4*. Around Ximen have better options - Westgate, City garden hotel. But still this one is ok for 1-2 nights staying in Taipei.
Booked 2 rooms for 2 nights at Amba Ximending. Love the hotel location as it is situated inside Ximending Night Street and below the hotel is a shopping mall. We got 2 large rooms that could accommodate 2 adults and 2 kids each. It also came with 2 separate TV sets and curtains that separate the areas. What you see from the website is what you get.
Room is clean, everything is well kept. Breakfast is good with lots of different kinds of food. Location is good, easy access to MTR. Lots of shops if you want to go for shopping. Many restaurants for you to select. If you want to relax or feel very tired, you can go to near by massage places to go for a two hours foot or body massage. I try myself and it’s a good feeling for it. Will stay again when I plan my next trip to Taipei.
Stayed in amba Ximending for three nights. This hotel is in a great location. At the center of the shopping area, also plenty of restaurants. Near Ximen MRT station about 10 minutes walk. At night the streets around the hotel are pedestrians only lots of locals and tourists very nice area to people watch! The hotel has a lovely modern design. Staffs are nice and friendly. I was really grateful that they upgraded me to a bigger room. I had a room with city view. I like the modern design of the rooms. You are provided with two bottled water that gets replenished every day and also the two pairs of good quality slippers they provided are for you to take home if you want. Hotel is well maintained and clean. Breakfast they provided is good but I have experience better breakfast choices in other hotels I have stayed in the past. Overall hotel is really great, nice location, easy transport access. Would recommend this hotel for a good stay.
Love the interiors of this hotel. Very chic, very Instagram-worthy. Great location. Just a stone throw away from the Ximending night market where you find a lot of trendy shops and street food. Short walk to the Ximen station. Kids loved the foozball machine in the reception area. Breakfast was just ok. Good selection of Asian breakfast but would have been nice if there were more pastries and pancakes for the kids. Would definitely stay here again on our next visit.
The entrance to the hotel was a little hard to find as there was an ongoing event on the day we arrived. Lobby is located on Level 5. Location was great, right smack in the middle of Ximending where all the actions take place. Room was clean and spacious but the airconditioning wasn't strong enough I felt. It comes with laundry room with washing machines and dryers, even providing detergent and softener for you at no cost. Overall a great stay.
On first sight amba Taipei Ximending was overwhelming, especially after a tiring trip from Taichung. Don't be put off by the buzzing location, it's worth getting lost in. I usually prefer hotels conveniently located to one of the city's hot spots. I chose it over other because it is in Ximending, Taipei's Harajuku and shopping district. I can say we have saved the best for last. I wasn't disappointed either. I wouldn't hesitate to return to this hotel. I highly recommend them to any age. To their future & possible guest(s): Location: It's a smack-bang located at the hip and youthful Ximending shopping district. The hotel can actually be easier to locate than anticipated. It is also a 10 minutes away from the iconic Taipei Main Station. If you're looking for a hotel that's in the heart of the buzzing Taipei, yet actually away from the hustle and bustle of the capital city, amba Taipei Ximending should be on your list. Room: The rooms at amba Taipei Ximending was surprisingly large for a Taipei hotel and they're plush beds are heavenly-like cloud. The rainshowers in the bathroom is actually nice. Food: amba Taipe Ximending's Chiba restaurant offers an extensive breakfast offerings and was totally a melt-in-the mouth. They also offer lunch, dinner, and snacks off the menu. Internet: Fast and strong. If you are a digital nomad like me, you would actually love to binge-internet all-day. Slippers: Their slippers are not your ordinary hotel slippers. They provide flipflops that are light, durable, and comfortable. Plus you can take it home for FREE. Service: The amba Taipei Ximending staff were the most helpful, most efficient & most polite we've ever encountered. When our mobile charger was broken, we requested for an electrical PVC tape and they were on hand to provide that straight to our room. They saved our day.
