The Riverside-Riga is located in the centre of Riga, you can check it on a map, and it is 15 minutes more or less from the Old City, you can walk or take trolley n°15, but is not really worth, while walking you discover the market which is the biggest among the Baltic countries,it's a very cheap and colourful market where people can find from glasses to fruit... and if you cross it you'll find a quicker way to the old city.
The hotel is small, very clean, the room is quite comfortable, the bathroom very modern excellent shower. The breakfast is very complete, (the pancakes with that Latvian toffee syrup are delicious!) and there is a spa: jacuzzi and sauna, it's €6.50 an hour per room, as guests reserve better in advance, and the spa is just for you, very very nice!
The girls at the reception are really kind and helpful, they speak different languages, and Arta, one of the receptionists is really nice, she is ready to inform you about any topic concerning the country or Riga, she speaks very good English.
At the airport we went to Information and there we were lucky to find a lady whose name is Inese, she was absolutely nice giving us all the clues about the transport, etc. The price from the airport to the centre is 10 Lats by taxi. Remember 1 Lat is €0.70
We really enjoyed our stay and if you're looking for a little, nice hotel this one is correct. The only inconvenience is that there is no lift, the view from the room window is the parking or a kind of green space, but who cares? By the way, there aren't restaurants near the hotel. But there are so many in the Old City!
