i stayed here for 2 nights during my 5day trip to Kyoto and i wish i'd stayed here longer! It is a fuss-free and nicely designed hotels, especially for wood and industrial furniture lovers like us. Anteroom is a 5-10min walk from Kujo subway station, which is 1 stop away from Kyoto station. Do note that Kujo is a subway line, different from the JR trains or railways lines. We loved all the furnishings and details in the room, right down to the toiletries and shampoo/body wash in the bathroom! our room was quite spacious since we booked twin room with terrace and the furnishings and natural lighting in the room made it really tempting to just stay indoors and do nothing. The free laundry (washer with dryer) was very much put to good use as we had arrived with 4 days' worth of dirty laundry. Free bicycle rental was an added incentive for guests but too bad we didn't have time to cycle around the neighbourhood as there's too much to explore in Kyoto. Breakfast was an additional 1000JPY but it was a healthy and filling spread.
We couldn't bear to leave and ended up buying so many of the merchandise just to remember the place by. One thing though, we went out at 1+pm, put up the "pls clean room" sign and there was a recyclable bag hung on our door with clean towels and new toiletries for the day, which we thought the cleaner hung there to clean up later. When we returned that night, our room was unmade. So we're not sure if they have a cut-off time for making rooms.
Otherwise, all was well and Anteroom is definitely one of the reasons we can't wait to return to Kyoto for.
