Overall a most satisfying experienceRecently stayed at the Ambassador as a friend who I was meeting to travel in Taiwan had so he thought booked a room there.Apparently there are three “Ambassador” hotels in the city so when I said my friend was arriving the day after the very helpful Mr Jerry Lin at the front desk looked for him but he wasn’t listed.Apparently there has been some confusion with the local booking agent and his travel agent but Mr Lin got it all sorted which brings me to my first plus about the hotel the friendly and helpful staff.My standard room ticked all the right boxes re size ,cleanliness and amenities.I had gotten a deal via the website that also had vouchers for happy hour at the lounge lobby bar which included a selection of hot food,drinks including one night a bottle of whiskey(nice touch).There is a well equipped gym and I had a relaxing sauna on two occasions.Breakfast was a great selection of Western and Japanese food.It is close to a MRT station and a nearby night market plus a wide selection of shops.The decor may be a little dated but overall a most satisfying experience.

Sorry to be Blut - not worth the moneySorry to be so blunt, but this is an under managed under maintained hotel I don’t know when they got the 5 star, but its certainly not up to days standard The rooms are old, carpet is run down, the reception desk looks like some old office equipment, Even the marble reception desk has stains on it, god knows from what. Your better of at a new 4 star in Taipei , and there a lot of them.
Fab location, wonderful service!Pleasantly surprised by this hotel. As soon as I checked in felt like one would experience nice service. The front desk was efficient, courteous and helpful at my check in and also at checkout. I wanted to find out about vegetarian food options and they checked all their restaurants and arranged food options at the Chinese restaurant in the hotel. Had a few drinks at the lobby bar and enjoyed one of the best cocktail drinks as well as great service from the bartender there. Highly recommend to try their recommended drinks. The hotel has a nice lemon grassy fragrance(I think) in its lobby and the corridor which I liked. The room was decent, decent size and reasonably new interiors. The toiletries were awesome, shower gel and other stuff felt high quality. Only grudge in the room was the bed, which I felt was a bit weirdly smaller than a standard queen bed. Some how felt it wasn’t fitting well in the room ...maybe just me looking for sharp angles in everything. Overall a wonderful experience!
DisappointedMy family loves this hotel. Both of my cousins got married here and one of them had the mayor of Taipei, who later became the president of Taiwan, speak at his wedding. That being said, this is supposed to be a 5-Star hotel according to the tourism bureau of Taiwan, and I wondered how it's able to keep its 5-Stars for so long. I did NOT stay on an executive floor though. This was not a special occasion, just a quick 2-day visit with the family. First, the pros: - Most of the front desk staff are multi-lingual. Japanese or English are probably part of the requirement for the position. - Courteous and professional staff - Pretty much anything related to the soft product, i.e. staff. - Bidets in the bathrooms. If you haven't installed one at home, you should. I'm a huge proponent of bidets, and I don't know how I can ever go back to feeling clean with just toilet paper anymore. - Good breakfast buffet with excellent mix of Asian and Western foods, unless you're one of those closed minded Americans who think meats and potatoes are the bee's knees. Seriously, if you're in Taiwan and you think the Ambassador Hotel's buffet doesn't offer enough food for the average Westerner, you may want to try expanding your palette. Cons: - Pretty much all the hard product requires refresh or update. - The mattress feels like basic spring mattress that I can buy for ~$200 in the US. There's no way you can get in or out of bed without waking your partner. - The Wi-Fi is spotty, and not exactly blazing fast when it works. It's 2018, I really think getting fast, reliable internet is a requirement for any hotel who wants businessmen as its primary clientele. - I noticed many stains in the carpet in the common areas, and even in my room. I'm not sure if those stains are related to the subtle musty smell. - Small flat screen TV. I mean, I didn't use it at all since I'm in Taipei and wouldn't waste my time watching TV while I'm here, but it's like, 32 inches or something. At least it's a Sony, I guess. - Fitness center is not open 24 hrs. Am I spoiled by 24-Hour Fitness? Overall, I feel as if the heydays of the Ambassador are behind it, if the owners are not interested in refreshing it and making some improvements. That would make me sad, just as this short stay did.
Good experience, no cherries on topMe and colleagues get therein Taipei for a local trade show and stay at Ambassador since years ago. The hotel is very nice, very clean, kind personnel, awesome buffet for breakfast and for dinner too. Personally, I also use the gym and find it above average. On the other side, this year I found something to complain for; we usually check out in the morning, work till the afternoon, have dinner at the buffet, then leave for the airport in the night. I used to ask for the possibility to have a shower before dinner, and always had a full availability from the staff. Not this year. They "changed their policy" so upon my further request, they offered the possibility to have a room for my shower. At the price of about 60 €. You may say it is just a detail, when the rest of the experience was good. Right, but it was the last bite of that experience, leaving me and my travel mates with a bad taste in our mouth. Sometimes this is enough to justify at least a research for something else...
