Best area to stay in Kyoto?

Need to book a hotel for Kyoto and are after the best location to say? Doesn’t need to be near the main station.

Time of year, size and makeup of party, budget....nice to provide.

I like so-called "downtown."

Near Kyoto Station is one of the best areas, actually. If you arrive by Shinkansen, the hotel would be close; Kyoto City is a large city so you need to travel by train, bus, or taxi within Kyoto City; there are plenty of shopping and dining choices in the station area; within minutes of walk, there's an AEON mall so that you don't get bored at night.

Having said all those things, I might recommend the area between Shijo and Sanjo in Kawaramachi, somewhere near Teramachi, Shinkyogoku, and Nishiki arcades, or somewhere in Higashiyama. Best depends.
