Stayed at the Amba as part of a conference group this March. Conveniently located in the heart of Ximending, the hotel is close to lots of shopping, food, transportation, and bars at the Red House. Amba is tastefully furnished with spacious double rooms, though, for colleagues, the double beds may be placed a little too close for comfort and the frosted glass doors for the toilet and shower may still feel much too transparent. The breakfast buffet is delicious with both Chinese and Western treats for you to pile onto your plate(s) -- congee, doujiang, noodles, omelets, sausage, bacon, ham, salad (?), pastries, yogurt, and cereal. The fresh squeezed juice and fruit was great as well. Reception, dining, and the lounge were all very pleasant to spend time in. Lastly, for Chinese speakers, the pun reproduced throughout the Am-ba will be sure to charm as well -- wen-ba (reception), chi-ba (dining), xi-ba (laundry), chuan-ba (guest slippers), etc.
