I stayed in Duo Inn for 8 days with my two sisters for the Sakura. The place was in a quite neighborhood. Within a very short walking distance, we had easy accesses to good Japanese restaurants, and big supermarkets. Several buses just around the corners go to Kyoto Station, which takes about 20-25 minutes. The room was very clean and... More

We really enjoyed our 6 day stay in Kyoto. Duo Inn is located in the NorthWest area of Kyoto so the location is not super central but if confident negotiating public transport you can access all of the city and surrounding areas via a combination of trains and buses. The room was very clean and comfortable with everything needed for... More

Clean, kind, economical, and set in a great location! Minutes away from Kinkaku-ji and right next to the train line to Arashiyama, this place turned out to be wonderfully accessible. It is about 45 minutes away from downtown Kyoto by bus, but that didn't turn out to be a problem since there are buses that run straight there. The manager... More

I decided to book a room after reading good reviews from the Duo Inn and it met all my expectations. The place is very clean and it has all the commodities. The small kitchen is great to prepare simple meals. The beds are very comfortable. There are various bus stops near the Inn and the closest train station is just... More

I stayed at Duo Inn solo for 34 days in November-December 2014. The rooms come with large balcony and a kitchenette. My room was very quiet, v. clean – spotless. The real asset of Duo Inn is its manager Mr. Yoshi – who speaks perfect English. He went way out of his way to help with my sightseeing/travel plans, shopping... More

I was fortunate to stay at the Duo Inn for 3 months in the Fall 2014 while on sabbatical. The Inn is located in northwest Kyoto, in a charming and quiet neighborhood that gives you a taste of Japan away from the crowd. Next to the Inn is a picturesque stream (called Kamiya-gawa). Around the Inn are private homes and... More

If you stay in Kyoto for more than a few nights, this is an amazing option. Having visited Kyoto for more than 15 times, I have tried a fair number of accommodations. This is my favorite. Is is nicely set in a not so busy neighborhood, it is very convenient for Ryoanji, very good for Kinkakuji (two of the major... More
