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

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

Really nice stay. The manager was helpful, kind and fluent in english (something I missed during my whole stay in Japan). The location is not great, but once you get used to it, it is not a problem at all. Restaturants are close to the inn and they are ok. With the assistance of the manager we booked a transfer...
