If a hotel is recommended to visit Kyoto Kyoto Tower. It lies in front of the station and the hotel Kyoto Tower. With an offer you could get a room for 8000 yen including a visit to the lookout tower from which you can have views of the city. If you consider that the entrance to the gazebo will cost 700 yen per person, I save and that made it cheaper if you intend to climb to the viewpoint. In high season like August it is harder to get deals and you pay two times or more, but this is normal because the rooms are nice. The bed was cozy and the location unbeatable, taking into account that part of the train station, you also have the bus station, the best way to get around.
