I stayed about a month at the Duo Inn in July 2009, and then again for a month in July 2014. Both times I was extremely satisfied, but I'll focus on the most recent stay. I stayed in their type D room by myself, which provided a lot of extra space. I didn't make much use of the kitchenette aside... More

The place is really amazing. Plenty of room, the bathrooms are clean, manager was very nice in giving us directions. It's conveniently located near a bus stop. It's quite affordable so that made it a clear choice to stay. I definitely recommend this place!

As with all the previous reviews, Duo Inn is excellent value for money and perfect for a family of 4. We stayed for 5 nights in April and our girls loved sleeping in the Tatami Room - the small apartment had everything we needed thanks to Yoshi. JR Line to Emachi is easy. Make sure you take the small train... More

Love the location: an old predominately residential neighborhood with famous temples within easy walking distance. Bus stops are a couple of minutes' away on foot and getting to downtown or the subway / train lines is not an issue. Manager Yoshi-san is helpful and his fluency in english means there is no communication problem. Above all, i enjoyed the bliss... More
