Great hotel in the bustling Ximending district. Right out the door you have a lot of unique and International retailers, food stands and restaurants. The hotel is definitely above a Best Western or Comfort Inn and for the price a great value. As long as your expectations are not for a luxury 5 star Grand hotel you will be happy....

Stayed at Amba Ximending on two separate nights on January. Taiwan / Taipei is not my frequent travel destination, and I was lazy to run thru the travel guide book, therefore the first requirement is a hotel that is conveniently access from MRT and major eat/shop area, Amba Ximending stood out from the options. Location :The hotel locates around 5-10...

We stayed 5 nights in a "Large King Room". Actually the room is not large but it is well laid out and not over furnished, so it actually works quite well. We also booked and paid in advance to get the better price but it was still SGD200 per night which is not cheap. The best thing is the location...

With so many hotels in Ximending mainly comprised of boutique hotels, Amba Ximending is one that I will re visit again. The location is right in the middle of tourist hub with its mix of restaurants and snack stores. The hotel is housed right within the same building as Eslite hence you are close to shopping and also close to...

I will recommend this hotel for its location and its staff. It's in the heart of Ximending but still a convenient distance to give you some peace and quiet, away from the crowds.

Friendly staff, especially Xenia at the front desk, Clean rooms and easy access location. Amba may not be a luxury hotel but it has plenty of charm compare to other boutique hotels in the area. Ask hotel to reserve taxi to airport with a fix price of 1000 Yuan.

Located right smack in Ximending. Endless of shopping & eating around.Smooth check-in, was upgraded. Pleasant ambience, decorated with modern art pieces. Upgraded room was huge and spacious though toilet/bathroom needs a bit more privacy. Breakfast was good. I would recommend the rice rolls which we really enjoyed. Front desk staff are very helpful through out our stay. Two thumbs up!
