Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We absolutely loved this hotel and can’t think of one thing we didn’t like.

The beds are the huge (2 king sized pushed together) and insanely comfortable so we slept so well. The shower had great water pressure and I took a traditional bath with the bath salts, herbs and essential oils which are free and available in reception (you make up your own little muslin bag).

The location is perfect - a 5 minute walk to the subway (Kujo) or a 15 minute walk to Kyoto’s main station.

However, the highlight was breakfast. We’ve never seen such a selection of breakfast items and everything was so delicious. We looked forward to breakfast every morning. If we come back to Kyoto, we will be staying at the Anteroom!

Thank you for visiting Hotel Anteroom Kyoto, one of the many hotels we have to offer. We are very happy to read from your post that you were satisfied with your stay at our hotel. Our staff is also thrilled to receive your many compliments. Thank you for taking advantage of our breakfast. We are working hard to develop our breakfast menu so that you can enjoy the characteristics of the ingredients themselves, using seasonal ingredients. We hope that you will try another seasonal dish the next time you visit us. At the front desk of our hotel, we offer amenities such as bath salts, herbs, and essential oils for you to enjoy while bathing. However, the bathtub on the first floor is made of Japanese cypress wood, and instead of using bath salts, you can put herbs and essential oils in the wooden chips and enjoy them. Once again, thank you very much for taking time out of your busy schedule to post your feedback. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Hotel Anteroom Kyoto

Hotel Anteroom Kyoto was very good for my 4 night stay. Our room was reasonably spacious but I felt there was some wasted space that made it a big tight for 2 large suitcases. (There are a number of different room configerations though so check if you are travelling with large amount of luggsge) The breakfast is a highlight - great variety covering many tastes - so delicious. The art throughout the hotel is an interesting feature. A convenience store 60m away which is a real bonus.

As for breakfast, we have prepared a rich and colorful menu, including obanzai, a traditional Japanese dish made with ingredients from Kyoto. The restaurant staff is very pleased to read that the breakfast was enjoyed by our guests. On the other hand, we apologize for any inconvenience caused by the rooms. We have larger twin rooms available, and we hope that you will consider them the next time you visit our hotel. We look forward to serving you again in the future.

Fantastic experience at the Hotel Anteroom. DO NOT skip the breakfast. French pastries, Japanese vegetables and salads, pastas, proteins. The first floor is an art gallery. There are interesting things to look at everywhere. The laundry amenities were great too (washer and dryer, each 1/2 hour, each 100 yen). Friendly staff, big, comfortable rooms. Delightful bath/shower experience. Hotel Anteroom provides a “buffet” with which to make a sachet of scented bath salts to use in the deep tub in the room.

Like most UDS operated hotels the place is picture friendly. You notice the design elements throughout the hotel but various ‘designs’ sacrifices spacing and you feel the aging of the furniture and the design due to when the hotel was designed and built. The location is also not the most convenient for first time visitor or someone who wishes to tale a rest during the day time for tour of Kyoto. But as usual staff is trained competently and the hotel runs efficiently.

Really beautiful and stylish hotel. Cool artwork around. We’ll stocked bar, but it’s only open on weekends. Rooms are compact but clean. Breakfast buffet amazing - especially the daily sandwiches! Caters for most tastes. About 15 mins south of Kyoto station. 5-10 min walk to metro and bus. Beds would benefit from more pillows

A chic and modern hotel in the Kyoto! Great place to stay if you are in Kyoto, in general from experience usually good affordable accommodation are located one station/stop away from kyoto central station and this one is near to the Kujo station exit number 4 (conveniently also the exit with the lift access).

The room was clean and adequate although as per any hotels in Japan, size is always a tad smaller but as long as you do not need to keep more than 2 luggage wide open on the floor all the time you should be fine. The bathroom comes with a bathtub which also serves as your standing shower, the bathtub could only really fit in anyone under the height of 160 comfortably.

There is a bar which operates on certain days of the week from evenings till 12 and I would recommend a drink there if you are back after a long day out and just idle away at the bar in peace.

Breakfast is a little hit and miss, after reading other reviews I decided to try the breakfast for the last day morning and they were serving 3 main items form the bakery (Croissant,Danish pastry and I think a sandwich or something) together with potatao soup, free flow of yoghurt with various toppings, salad, juice, coffee/tea and pretty much that was it. I was rather hopping to see some forms of eggs as an option which i think would be good to have in the morning as breakfast.

Overall I would still recommend this place if you are looking for a place to say in Kyoto!

We stayed here for 3 nights in June and were placed in a semi-double room. This is a misnomer for it is in reality a single room with barely enough room for 2 people on a very small bed. The windows are opaque so you cannot see outside. The carpeting is worn, stained, and dirty. The bathroom is barely large enough for one person. Personally, I felt that this was a rip-off by the booking company. It is a difficult walk from the train station to this hotel and one cannot walk it with luggage in 15 minutes. You really have to take a taxi. It is not centrally located nor near restaurants and activities. I would recommend that readers avoid this hotel at all costs.

This hotel is just a cheap and looks nice but that's it. Service is not professional level. The staff who can speak English didn't have any hospitality and nice attitude. Also in midnight someone knocked our room's door and tried to open, but staffs didn't do anything. I've never had this kind of experience in normal level hotel.
If you are a university student,this hotel is acceptable. but if you are not and you want to enjoy your travel, I don't recommend this hotel, never.

The Hotel Anteroom wasn't actually our first choice for a weekend stay in Kyoto, but it most certainly will be next time—and might well be yours, too. The large, modern room, made-to-order breakfasts and reasonable rates should put this fine property on anyone's short list.

LOCATION

The Anteroom is located in a residential neighbourhood, south of the train station and almost directly in-between two stops on the Karasuma (green) subway line. You might see this as a minus, as indeed we did initially, but the quiet surroundings quickly won us over. It's maybe a five-minute walk to either station, and on the way you might just be greeted—in English, no less—by some friendly kids on their way to or from school.

There are also a number of decent-looking restaurants in the area, though due to time contstraints we didn't get to try any of them.

ROOM

As we checked in and then proceeded down the long main corridor to our room the hotel's concrete aesthetic was a bit overwhelming, and maybe the tiniest bit pretentious. But judgment quickly turned to joy as soon as we saw our lodgings.

We booked a garden view room on the first floor, comparatively enormous by Japanese hotel room standards. It was technically a twin room, but with two mattresses right up against each other on a raised platform the bed was more like a queen or king. On the opposite wall was a huge flat screen TV, housed behind an even bigger glass panel.

In the bathroom was another star attraction: a big, beautiful wooden tub. Filled with Kyoto's sulphur-infused water it was basically a private onsen, a perfect place to soak after a day of exploring. Or anytime, really...

BREAKFAST

Our room rate included breakfast, which turned out to be a great value. It was initially a bit confusing—I misunderstood the person who sat us at our table and thought that we could order only one of the four items on the menu board; it turns out that you can order three. One of those items will almost surely be the tasty homemade granola and yogurt; another will likely be a homemade muffin. On top of those there will be a choice of two entrées, one of which will be a pita with a warm filling.

If that sounds like a lot of food it is, but you also have to factor in the salad and soup bar, plus the juice and coffee stations. The coffee is definitely on-point; I saw a European gentlemen serve and suck back no less than three espressos while hovering in front of the machine.

My girlfriend and I checked out of the Anteroom to spend our final night in Kyoto at their much more expensive sister property, the Kanra. The Kanra certainly lived up to its reputation but truth be told, we liked the Anteroom better!

The southern parts of Kyoto are very calm and seem almost remote in comparison to the northern neighbourhoods. There are hardly restaurants anywhere near Hotel Anteroom Kyoto and the surrounding lacks both Kyoto's spiritual vibe and the urban atmosphere you may know from other Japanese cities. This is the main reason for our rather harsh TripAdvisor judgment.

The rooms and main areas are nicely decorated although cleanliness could be improved: One day garbage bags lay around in the aisle for hours, but note that the rooms were always neat. Furthermore, the room size is good, but storage spaces were much too limited.

The service was mixed. Staff members were mostly friendly, but seemed very challenged at times - especially in contact with foreigners not speaking Japanese. We would also suggest daily refill of complimentary water as an improvement.

In the end our impression about Hotel Anteroom was far from perfect - an impression based on mixed feelings.
