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...

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...

My second stay here. Lots to do in Ximen, and the Amba is in the heart of it. Wonderful service, pleasant food, and modern design. The staff here are very helpful and have made us feel welcome. We'll be back.

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!...

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...

amba Ximending is a decor hotel where decoration is more like your own bedroom. We booked a large room. It is very clean and spacious. We have nothing bad to say about this hotel. One suggestion to the hotel is that they should put a sofa or one more chairs in the room. (only one chair in the large bedroom)....
