It is a aspect of amba Hotels &amp Resorts group chain by Qun Xin Properties Restricted. Prior to my most awaited Taiwan adventure, I honestly stalked amba till our trip. Truth beholds that no quantity of digital wanderlusting could express my feelings how excited I was.

Here’s my knowledge of amba Taipei Ximending…

Initially Impressions

Immediately after our adventure in Chiayi, Nantou, and Taichung our subsequent quit is in Taipei. We booked a reserved seat train ticket by way of THSR and headed to Taipei. In just an hour we arrived at the iconic Taipei Primary Station and hailed a taxi cab to the hotel.

Situated in Wanhua District, inside the corners of Wuchang Street and Kunming Street, this amba hotel is in the heart of Ximending’s buzzing buying and entertainment scene. Regardless of its remarkable place, the unassuming primary entrance on feels tucked away from the hustle and bustle. From the busy streets of Wanhua district to the hotel’s arrival courtyard on the suitable of Eslite Wuchang primary entrance, we took an elevator to the 5th level, and we went from broad daylight into a warm and cozy lobby of amba Taipei Ximending.

A jolly man, Mr. Mark Li, greeted us with a warm welcome that reminded us that we are in fantastic hands. As we are checking in, a attractive lady, the hotel’s common manager also rewarded us her warm welcome, which gave a individual touch that promptly produced me really feel at residence. There is a cool hotel vibe that hits you as quickly as you enter the constructing, and I was selecting up what they have been placing on.

The Space

Our Huge Space was surprisingly substantial at 29 square meters for a Taipei hotel and thoughtfully curated into a masterpiece. The area was filled with exciting style capabilities, such as the dark metal wardrobe rack and the roundtable which in fact appears like a vintage vinyl. The two plush single bed had plump cushions and luxurious bed linen, which I could not wait to dive in to. The complimentary slippers are not your ordinary hotel slipper but it is in fact a good, sturdy, and comfy flip-flop you could take residence.

The bathroom is separated from the toilet and each are compact but featured the most attractive black tiles. What I like the most is the rainforest shower and this is the ideal rain shower I had for the duration of my entire remain in Taiwan.

Waiting in our area have been the loveliest welcome gifts, such as a handwritten note from the hotel management, a jar-complete of noodle crunch, and two bottles of Taiwan’s sparkling drink. These individual touches unquestionably did not go unnoticed.

Leisurely breakfast

I definitely really like beginning my day more than a leisurely breakfast, so when it comes to hotels, a fantastic breakfast buffet is normally higher on the priority list. amba Taipei Ximending’s Chiba restaurant presents an expansive breakfast buffet and Chiba had it spot on. An exciting reality is that “chi” implies “to consume”, and “ba” is in fact a reference to the hotel name.

Chiba restaurant rewards you with the most exciting interiors you have ever laid your eyes on. A mixture of the hip and youthful Ximending, and modern day touches produced the entire dining knowledge oozing in style and jaw-dropping. Chiba’s substantial buffet offerings have been adventurous but I opted for a starter breakfast on our second day: mixed rice dish, bacon, and fried nuggets. On our final day, I chose to have corn dogs, vegetable greens, bread and butter, and kimchi. The fried nuggets and mini corn dogs have been magically encased in crispy breadcrumbs, and each tasted tender and fresh. It really is an explosion of taste in the mouth.


Not all hotels presents laundry service for absolutely free, and most of the time, the laundry value per apparel is sky-rocketing. That implies you have to wash your clothing and underwear on a dirty hotel sink. As a globe traveller, who in fact enjoys longer trips than shorter trips, I choose hotels and B&ampBs that presents absolutely free self-service laundry service, and that tends to make amba taipei Ximending standout. It really is a extremely easy service in particular if you do not want your smelly and dirty clothing mixed collectively with your fresh ones.

I am so glad that we stayed for two nights in this hip and fashionable hotel in Taipei.

The entire knowledge at amba Taipei Ximending was an indulgent treat. It really is secure to say I will be back for the genuine hospitality and its easy place.
