Friendly staff, especially Xenia at the front desk, Clean rooms and easy access location. Amba may not be a luxury hotel but it has plenty of charm compare to other boutique hotels in the area. Ask hotel to reserve taxi to airport with a fix price of 1000 Yuan.

Located right smack in Ximending. Endless of shopping & eating around.Smooth check-in, was upgraded. Pleasant ambience, decorated with modern art pieces. Upgraded room was huge and spacious though toilet/bathroom needs a bit more privacy. Breakfast was good. I would recommend the rice rolls which we really enjoyed. Front desk staff are very helpful through out our stay. Two thumbs up!
