AMBA TAIPEI ZHONGSHAN

FIRST COMES ALL THE STRESS THAT COMES WITH DECIDING WHAT TO PACK. CREATING OUTFITS FOR PICTURE PERFECT MOMENTS AND TRYING TO STUFF FIVE PAIRS OF SHOES INTO THE ALREADY OVERWEIGHT CARRY-ON.

AHHHHHHHHHH.
 

THAT'S WHAT AN AMAZING HOTEL MAKES YOU FEEL.
AND WELL, WHAT amba Taipei Zhongshan DID FOR US. 

SECOND, IS THE FIFTEEN HOUR+ FLIGHT, COMPLETE WITH SCREAMING BABIES, LEG CRAMPS, AND EATING TOO MANY M&M'S JUST TO HAVE ENOUGH ENERGY TO OVERCOME THE JETLAG AND WIN THE 30 MINUTE LAYOVER SPRINT.

AND THEN, THIRD. 

INSTANT RELAXATION.
AFTER THE OBLIGATORY BED JUMPING, THAT IS. 

AMBA'S KITSCHY, MODERN, STYLISH, PLAYFUL, AND THOUGHTFUL.

YOU CAN REQUEST SIMPLE EXERCISE EQUIPMENT LIKE DUMBBELLS AND A YOGA MAT FROM THE FRONT DESK AND THERE ARE MORE UNIVERSAL OUTLETS IN THE ROOM THEN WE COULD EVER NEED (PRETTY AMAZING, CONSIDERING WE'RE BOTH STEREOTYPICAL, TECH OBSESSED MILLENNIALS.)

AND... FREE LAUNDRY. YEP, YOUR READ THAT RIGHT, LAUNDRY. 
MUCH APPRECIATED, AS WE LOVE PACKING LIGHT. AND AFTER A FEW WEEKS ON THE ROAD, WE NEEDED IT. 
DETERGENT PROVIDED, FYI. 

THERE'S ALSO A CHIC RESTAURANT DOWNSTAIRS. ALL WIDE WINDOWS, OPEN KITCHEN, COMMUNAL TABLES, + WINE BY THE GLASS. ACHOI HAS A CHIIL ATMOSPHERE FOR IMPRESSING YOUR DATE AND SERVES TAPAS PLATES TO SHARE WITH YOUR BEST BUDS.

POST-FOOD, IT'S TIME FOR A LITTLE FUN. BE SURE TO MAKE YOUR WAY THROUGH THE UNMARKED DOOR AND HEAD DOWN TO MUD, amba Taipei Zhongshan's IN HOUSE SPEAKEASY. 

 
 

BUT I WOULD SAY MY FAVOURITE THING ABOUT THE PLACE WAS IT'S LOCATION, RIGHT IN THE HEART OF TAIPEI'S SELF-PROCLAIMED DESIGN DISTRICT, ZHONGSHAN. IT'S SURROUNDED BY STREET-ART AND CONTEMPORARY ART INSTALLATIONS, AMAZING JAPANESE FOOD, + ONE OF TAIPEI'S BEST NIGHT MARKETS, NINGXIA. STAY TUNED FOR A ZHONGSHAN GUIDE COMING SOON.

IT'S ALSO SUPER CONVENIENTLY LOCATED ALONG THE METRO MAP FOR EXPLORING THE REST OF TAIPEI. JUST ONE STOP FROM MAIN STATION, WHICH HAS TRAINS TO TAKE YOU OUTSIDE THE CITY FOR DAY TRIPS, TEN MINUTES TO SHIDA NIGHT MARKET FOR SOME SHOPPING, FIFTEEN MINUTES TO COOL BARS AND THE FAMED YONGKANG JIE, AND THIRTY MINUTES TO BEITOU FOR HOT SPRINGS.  

THANKS TO amba Taipei Zhongshan FOR THE COMFY BED AND FOR HOSTING US! 
BUT AS USUAL, ALL OPINIONS ARE OUR OWN.
