Hotel is centrally located in Ximending with shopping centre within the same building. Family Room is spacious with a big enough sofa that can also double up as a bed if need to. Buffet breakfast has a generous spread with no lack of options. Staffs are very warm and welcoming and polite. Would definitely return to Amba for my future...

Stayed in the family room with king size bed. The room is relatively big in Taipei context. There is a separate space for bathroom and living area with a big sofa. There is also a launderette in the building. The hotel is in Ximending but slightly away from the hustle and bustle. I would recommend this 3.5 star hotel to...

I was pleasantly surprised when I checked in on 22 October to learn that this hotel has such a "hip" feel; though minimalist but with such modern amenities and friendly staff from the reception to the housekeeping lady. It's my first time stay but certainly not my last. The location is fantastic; right smack in the heart of Ximending and...

Loved the "urban" design of this hotel. The beds are HUGE and I liked the wet room as opposed to a standard bathroom. Lovely ginger-scented toiletries as well. The staff were exceptionally friendly and the location is fantastic (although perhaps a bit too lively for people looking for peace and quiet). Breakfast was a bit average (processed cheese slices!) although...

This is my 3rd time here and I love it. The room is spacious, clean and the bed is really comfortable. The hotel is situated strategically in the middle of Ximending, making moving about an easy affair. I took the king bed size room and I love it. Will definitely return.
