“The right choice”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

Well-designed hotel with good quality furnishings. Helpful & friendly staff who are always ready to provide needed advice. Simple but ample breakfast offering. Convenient location, though not close to subway/train, but taxis always easily available and are very affordable. Free laundry is good to have. A good choice when in Taipei.

I booked a double deluxe room and pay less than US$100 in May. The bedroom and the toilet is much bigger than those hotels near Taipei train station. I like the bathtub and the shower head and the room is very clean. What I don't like is the location of the hotel, there are not many choices of food and shops nearby. The mattress is also very hard and I had stiff neck the next day. Note that the laundry room on 10th floor only opens from 10am to 9pm and they provide free detergent.

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your recent review of Ambience Hotel Taipei. We are delighted to find that you were satisfied with the guest room, except for the mattress which caused some discomfort to you. Regarding your comments about the lack of choices for food in the neighborhood, there are actually a big variety of restaurants within walking distance from the hotel, including local seafood restaurants, Japanese grill, Korean restaurant (frequented by many Korean bands and celebrities when they visit Taipei), Italian restaurant and oyster bar. Please do not hesitate to ask our staff for recommendations on your next visit!

Once again your comments and feedback are much appreciated, and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future!

Best regards,
Diana Dai

This hotel is very close to being a 4 star rating, but after all I gave it a 3. Let's see the good and the not so good.
GOOD:
-rate: rather inexpensive; (outsourced) pick-up service also well priced compared to normal taxi
-service, friendly, decent English, fairly professional: just wish they were more engaging and proactively helpful
-breakfast, included in the rate
-room decor and bed

NOT SO GOOD:
-location: there's not much around, and the MRT is not very close, but cheap taxi can take you anywhere, so even if you choose here, it will be ok. That corner position is kind of awkward
-thin walls
-bathroom is not great in my opinion; tripped several times on the step in and out of the bathroom. Shower is super-oversized (what for?) but bathroom is tiny. Toiletries nothing special for a boutique hotel.

This is a "boutique" hotel, trying hard and almost succeeding; with a little effort, they can get much better. Excellent Japanese ramen place down the road on Chang'an Dong Rd.

Room Tip: Higher room facing the back will be quieter. Staff was accommodating about my request

We booked our hotel through agoda and stayed in the deluxe room. It is a very nice room- great design with nice amenities, and a wonderful bathroom with a heated bidet, bathtub, and rain shower. The kitchenette and closet are discretely hidden within the wall so finding them was a nice surprise! We would definitely recommend this hotel, it has a nice romantic feel to it. AND super clean!

Safe location, about 10-15 minute walk to metro. Price was below average for quality. Nice rooms, great bed and shower. Good breakfast buffet included along with afternoon tea. Free clothes washer/dryer and detergent. Best of all was an excellent staff. No airport shuttle, and a taxi costs about $32 and is worth it as the bus from airport to near the hotel is slow.
