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...

I found this place on a Japanese travel site and since it was a great price compared to others (it was peak sakura time), I decided to give it a go. It is away from the city centre, but only a couple of minutes walk from Kujo underground station and about 12 mins walk from Kyoto Station. The neighbourhood was...

I have visited Kyoto at least 20 times, and I have stayed at this hotel more than 7 times. Each time, I have an average of 5 days. It is a bit unusual, not your typical hotel or even typical Japanese business hotel. There are art exhibits in the lobby and around hotel, it's like a apartment hotel without the...

Probably the best hotel of our whole holiday. Really nice big room and excellent bathrooms. Breakfast was interesting in that you get to pick three items off a menu. It wasn't that obvious that this was the case, but we watched others go first and quickly picked it up! Only minor criticism would be the limited opening hours of the...

We stayed there for 3nights in the twin bedroom. The room was spacious for japan standard. Everything was neat and clean. The single beds was very comfortable. The bathroom was a bit small but then again all bathrooms in japan are like that. The staff can speak english quite well so we had no difficulties on communicating what we want....

I got the single bed with breakfast. Although small, the rooms are a good value compared to other hotels in Kyoto. The best thing about the hotel was the breakfast in the morning. The minuses about the hotel was that the location is not that good (since there is not much nearby); flushing the toilet each time uses about 10...

This is an unusual hotel, very arty and modern. The location is outside the city centre, at least 15-20 minutes walk south from Kyoto station and between 2 subway stops. As Kyoto goes, the price was reasonable (probably reflecting the location). We booked a bigger room than the standard size (priced accordingly). They were refitting the foyer art installation on...

Had a fun time in this artsy hotel. The breakfast was filling and uniquely delicious. You can choose 3 out of 4 items such as onigiri, muesli, pannini and salad bar. Freshly squeezed juices and coffee. The night bar was a great spot to try local gin or whisky. The 5 minute walk to Kujo station has a Lawson convenience...

A bit off the beaten path and hard to find at first, but definitely a stroll to the train station. The breakfast they offered was amazing and helped us start our journey of traveling to Nara the next day.

We stayed here for a week over the cherry blossom period. The hotel itself it about 15/20 minute walk from Kyoto station (where the bullet train arrives) and was easily located. There's a subway station about 5 minutes from hotel. The rooms are smaller than you find elsewhere in the world, but was manageable with two big suitcases and the...

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
