The Duo Inn offers great, self contained accommodation. Though it is a little way out of the center of Kyoto the city center is easily accessible by JR Enmachi station (which is about a ten minute walk away.) Within a 5 minute walk of the hotel there are many supermarkets, convenience stores and restaurants. The Golden Pavilion is also nearby. The accommodation itself was clean and pleasant and the manager was very helpful.
For us, a couple travelling with an infant the Duo Inn was perfect. The kitchenette and dining space allowed us to prepare food for our little one and eat in of an evening if she was too tired to go out.More
