After a lot of research my sister and I decided to stay here at Amba Ximending for our 5 day and 4 night trip in Taipei. The lobby is beautiful and quite quirky and modern and the room was extremely spacious with two very large comfortable beds - we booked the medium twin room. The linen was also clean and the amenities provided were very good. While it would not be considered a luxury hotel Amba Ximending provided excellent service with polite and very helpful reception staff who could speak English quite well. The location was the best part as the hotel is situated in quite a happening part of town, but not right on the street so customers are not exposed to the noise from the street, which can get quite loud, particularly on the weekend nights. The hotel is also only located about a 10 minute walk away from the MRT so it was very convenient to walk from the MRT to the hotel on our check in and to walk back to the MRT to connect to the Airport line. The price was also quite reasonable, with NTD 13720 for four nights (without breakfast) I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Taipei!

I give this place a solid FIVE for the value, location, and service. It is not considered a 'five star' hotel (like a Four Seasons, Ritz, etc.) but it is very nice. I'd say it is a modern boutique in an awesome location (I may say that over and over again, because I am totally hooked on this place).

Trying to find it is a bit weird...the lobby is on the 5th floor of a department store. Just ask around where people are hanging or find the elevators. Once checked it, you'll have peace of mind because the floors need a hotel key to get to the floors.

The bar is very simple but elegant. Not a hang out place, but a nice quiet retreat if you need to escape from the rush of Taipei . The breakfast bar was only so-o. I'd save the money and just get food from the carts outside.

The front desk was very friendly and their English was very adequate. The concierge helped us navigate to a few other choice places.

When you get off the Blue/Green Line at Ximen (exit 6) it is about a 7 minute walk to the hotel. Lots of fun night life with great street food and western establishments too. Very clean area for the most part.

The rooms were clean, simple and comfortable. We got a room on the "inside" ring so there was no street noise and it still let in natural light in!

I cannot wait to go back!

BTW: We took the MRT to Taipei Main to the express train to TPE. WOW...fast, efficient and cheap!!!

Room Tip: Inside ring for quiet...out side to see the nightlife!

Under a colleague's recommendation, there were two hotels I could choose from. One was more business, serious, the usual hotel you would stay at...after tossing between the two, I chose Amba ...

It was the right choice...quirky n funky. Not your usual hotel.

Room was cool and thongs are complimentary :)

Breakfast choice was great...Local food as well as Western!

Staff are helpful and friendly...

Location was great too...though did have to find and asked around. About 10-15 mins walk to the subway.

It's a lively location akin to Shinjuku in Tokyo....for those that haven't been to Taipei.

My first trip there and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Some famous noodle and breakfast/lunch around though missed out many times due to timing and finding them.

We stayed for 3 nights at Amba Ximending in February. The location of this hotel is perfect, just a few blocks from the nearest train station. The room was clean and well equipped with everything you need. Buffet breakfast is also good. The price is a bit higher compared to other nearby hotels, but it is definitely worth it. We will stay in this hotel again :)
