This is my second time to stay here and surely will be the first choice of my next trip in Kyoto. The simple but nicely arranged room and friendly staffs can make up the distance disadvantage of the hotel.

It was unlike any other hotel stay. It'd probably be regarded as slightly inconvenient; but I love that it's located in a residential area. Enjoyed every morning strolling around the neighbourhood and getting a real insight into local life. Surrounding is so quiet and peaceful that I slept so well every night after a full-day schedule. Beautifully designed, the hotel... More

I loved this hotel, and stayed for four nights. I knew it was special as soon as I entered and saw art installations in the lobby (there was also a photo shoot happening in the lobby one day) and talked to the very friendly staff. Room was a decent size for one person. My only complaint is the shower drain... More

This is the second year in a row I've had a long stay at Hotel Anteroom. It's simply the best place for those who have already done the tourist route, stayed in ryokans or other elegant accommodations, and want a comfortable and convenient headquarters in Kyoto. Minimalist design, clean rooms with super-crisp new sheets every night. Actually, the rooms are... More

Cool design, very positive and welcoming atmosphere. Personal and not anonymous. The hotel is a mix of gallery space (an opening took place while we were there), large (!) rooms with terrace (OK, not all rooms have those, but there's a nice view from the upper floors), very friendly staff, books on art for sale in the lobby, lots of...

I love this hotel! It's not pricey despite its artsy character. The facilities and amenities are of high quality. The breakfast is so healthy and delicious. The room is spacious. I love that the room has a study table with a Luxo-like lamp. I'm raving about this hotel because it really deserves all the praise! If there's any downside though,... More

Staying at Hotel Anteroom was a great experience - it's got a fun, artsy vibe, and it's quite affordable. If you're not looking for something right across the Kyoto Station, this is a great option. The directions on the hotel website recommend taking a cab from Kyoto Station, but you can easily transfer to the Kyoto subway line to the... More

This is a very trendy and cosy hotel, though, the location is a bit off the Gion shopping area, but taking a bus is very convenient. The hotel used very simple renovations to make the whole place feel very comfortable and at home. I will definitely stay in this hotel again and had recommended friends to try out.

Easy to get to and a really great price. A short walk from Kujo station. This place is cute. The breakfast was really delicious, it consisted of a soup, a juice, a beautiful salad and wrap/sandwich. They also have complimentary washing machines, (a must after a week or two away). I would totally recommend Anteroom for someone on a budget.

Confortable hotel, within 10 minutes walking distance from Kyoto station though in a very quiet plave with not so much in the area but a metro station and bus stop within 2 minutes walk . Breakfast fresh, copious and well prepared. Very attentive and professional staff, ready to provide you an umbrella if ti rains. Free facilities like laundy and... More
