Seeking old bird's advice again:

If we were to stay in Kyoto (planning to tour Arashiyama, Kinkaku-ji, kiyomizu-dera, Gion, plus other usual Kyoto attractions), is it better to find accommodation near Kyoto Station (more expensive in general), or near 四条 area (cheaper and more choices)? TIA!

My consideration is the ease of taking public transports to the various attractions. I read that Kyoto station is where the bus terminals are located so I assume it's faster to travel from there?
Staying near Kyoto station is always more convenient as most temples are more accessible by bus. For cheaper hotels, you can look at the southern part of the station. Generally the hotels are more affordable.
