Reviewed 18 April 2012

Just located in ximending. Shopping mall downstairs. Friendly staff guide us as and when needed. Only thing is we book 2 rooms but was not given next to each other. Would be good to have a children tv program so as to keep my kids entertained for a while. Overall experience is good.

We have a group of people staying at this hotel during Easter holiday for a conference. We chose this hotel because it is located close to our conference area and it is a new hotel with many rooms as we need more than 20 rooms altogether.Most of the people of our group have good comments to the hotel.

In sum, here're our review:

Areas to praise:
1. I find the people of this hotel are very helpful. As all of us booked our package through different travel agents, when I notified that we are actually a group, they are very fast to help us to check-in without checking our documents individually. Also, my husband made his shirt dirty by pouring coffee onto it; we seek help from them to see whether they have laundry service. Though they didn't provide laundry service, they have a laundry room that you can book and use. As the laundry room is already booked, they manage to find some laundry detergent for him and teach him how to get rid of the dirt!

2. The rooms are of reasonable size and everything is in place.

3. They provide free wifi within the hotel.

4. The breakfast is good. Though you won't find varieties of 5-star hotel, you can manage to eat all the basic foods of a breakfast.

5. They have eco concept in the hotel room as they reminds you to switch off the lights, save the toilet papers, etc.

6. The location is great as it is located in the centre of Ximending. They have Eslite bookstore downstairs and across the street. All the shopping areas are very nearby. If you are hungry at night, you can go outside and walk close to the underground train station and you'll find many night stall over there.

Areas to improve:
1. Some of the members of our group find that the housekeeping of the hotel needs to improve. They find hairs around in their shower place after housekeeping.

2. For the first 2 days, as we need to attend conference, we had breakfast before 8am and this is very good as the breakfast place is so quiet and there are plenty of foods to choose. However, on the 3rd day, we slept till 9am (breakfast close at 10am) and went to take breakfast, the restaurant is crowded of people and they started to run out of foods, fruit juice and even plates. Some of us did not manage to eat much!

Overall, I enjoyed the stay in the hotel and it is located at a very convenience location and the staff are very friendly and willing to solve your problems!

Check in to Amba in March 2012 for 4 days into a large twin room & an extra large double room for my group of 4 adults & 1 toddler. Rooms are clean, spacious & comfortable. However my double bed in my extra large room is not as big as I wld expect. Buffet breakfast is served in a nice ambience restaurant & variety is adequate with mixture of local & western dishes & taste good. Location is a little walking from the MRT station but on a busy walking district in Ximending next to a lot of food & cinemas. Service is good except for one incident that greatly discounted my initial good impression. My little girl is down with tummy pain & diarrhea & we ask for houscall of a doctor to our room. To my dismay the reception told us they dint offer this & suggest we check online for contact ourselves or visit the nearby hospital. I find this unacceptable for a 4 star or boutique hotel :( there is also no subsequent followup check on my girl's health condition. Seems like the staff / mgmt need further refinng in hospitality.

Dear amba Guest,

Many thanks for your valuable comments. I was extremely sorry to learn that your baby girl was sick, and sincerely apologize for not providing on this occasion the level of service and care that amba is committed to offer. We trust that she has completely recovered and is doing well. We have since spoken to all colleagues and management concerned, and are putting in place a process to ensure that such an incident will not happen again.

We are also grateful for your positive feedback on amba’s room, breakfast and location. If you ever plan to return to Taipei, please do let us know.

Once again, we appreciate your taking the time to share with us your concerns, and hope to have the opportunity to serve you and your family again.

Best regards,

Teresa Huang

The hotel is nice. I like it especially cos the internet is given free even in the rooms. The connection is great! They provide with almost everything. Towels, soap, shampoo, shower gels, toothbrush, toothpaste and even slippers. You are allowed to bring the slippers home. They provided breakfast too. Since I am a muslim, can't eat the food except for the bread and cereal. At least there is something rather than nothing. The ambience is nice. :-)

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.
