Kyoto’s reputation as the historical one might have grown a bit out of hand — first-time visitors, as they step off the bullet train from Tokyo, might be surprised to note that it’s the 21st century here, just like everywhere else. And in Hotel Anteroom, Kyoto has a boutique hotel that’s absolutely as contemporary as they come.

In our book, if you’re wondering, this means a strong design identity, but one that’s soothing in the rooms and welcoming in the public spaces. It also means those public spaces are designed to be full of life, and in the Anteroom they’re emphasized to an extraordinary degree. You’ll enter via the art gallery, whose exhibitions are constantly renewed, and branching off from the lobby are a library and a lounge, both as likely to be packed with locals as with hotel guests.

The rooms, by contrast, are all tranquility — against a blank white backdrop a well-curated selection of contemporary furnishings and housewares aims to create the effect of an overnight stay in an artist’s guest house, and in this it succeeds unreservedly. It’s not about design as ostentatious display, but about good taste, which is something that can’t be faked. A fine introduction to the more modern side of Kyoto.
