Convenient location, easy transportation, safe neighborhood. Very clean, quiet and spacious rooms. Basic kitchen equipment including a toaster. Easy communication with the manager and prompt answer to e-mails. con: the laundry room is open from 9am to 9pm. Wish it were open all around the clock.

Recommended by a friend who had stayed in DUOINN numerous times, I would definitely recommend it to any visitors to Kyoto.

Several popular tourist attractions like the Kinkaku-Ji, Ryoan-Ji, Ninna-Ji and Kitano Tenman-gu are within half...

We stayed at the Duo Inn for 5 nights in May 2016, following a recommendation of a friend, and it was excellent. The room was very spacious and well furnished, the level of service was outstanding. Everything was perfect, we were actually so sad to leave! If we go back to Kyoto, we definitely go back to this place.

The house is really great!! And it's very safe for password key lock for the room door. The house is surrounded with restaurant, Lawson, and bus station, of course including randen train station. And the landlord is really friendly and nice~ It's no doubt that I will check in this apartment if I go to Kyoto next time~

I stayed in Kyoto at the Duo Inn for 12 nights in November 2015. It was clean and just as it had been described in the promotional information I received before my visit.

Staying in Nishijin District

Neighbourhood Profile
Nishijin District
A district with a long textile heritage, ancient Kyoto is still alive in the Nishijin District. Studded with its weaving factories, tea houses, and onsen, the neighborhood is charming and peaceful with a self-possessed air. Less traveled than other parts of the city, it is a district where you can take it at your own pace. Visitors can explore the many weaving and cloth houses, the free kimono shows, and the many shops selling traditional clothing and goods. Showcasing architecture with sloping roofs and wooden reliefs dating to decades past, the streets in the Nishijin District transport you back in time, making them a joy to wander.
