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~

My husband and I stayed at Duo Inn for 8 nights in November and we had a great time. Though it's located far from Kyoto station (about 35 minutes on bus), commuting within Kyoto by public transportation is easy. We enjoyed the village ambience and the inexpensive eateries serving yummy Japanese food (recommended by Yoshi the manager). He speaks fluent...

Six years ago myself and my wife stayed in the Duo Inn and we both thought it fantastic as it was extremely comfortable in all aspects at a very good price.

I recently finished my second stay at Duo Inn - approximately seven weeks this year - and six last year. Obviously to stay a second time I was pleased last year.

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.
