Awesome BFF vacation trip

Nice hotel recommended by my friend. We did enjoy our stay in Amba Taipei XMD. The room we stay is medium size, the housekeeping do the room cleaning everyday. Nice location, easy reach to MRT station and all the food stalls are just surrounding. We'll come back to stay in our next visit to Taipei, provided there is some discounted rate. Hehehe.....

Nice experience

Convenience location, nice breakfast, but the staff didn't refill the toilet tissue, they only put the tissue which used 1/3 and put it in the toilet. I think it is environmental protection but it absolutely dirty...

Clean and spacious rooms

Room is extremely spacious for taiwan standard. Very pleasing furnishing. Like that the shower and toilet is separated so two individuals can use them at the same time. Love the shower foam / shampoo etc. Overall, it is undoubtedly a premium stay. You get what you pay for.

Chic and comfortable

The design is minimal but chic. The style is modern and casual, and most important of all, very comfortable. The buffet breakfast is perfect but pity that during my stay was very crowded in the cafe probably due to the Chinese New Year holidays.

Trendy, modern and ideally located

Amba is a trendy, modern hotel and ideally located in the heart of the bustling Ximending area. Rooms are not large but very clean and with all one needs, including take-away slippers :-) The staff is very friendly and helpful. I stayed in other hotels in Taipei in the past... but from now it is going to be Amba for me !
