Riverside Hotel is on the wrong side of the tracks, but the walk from the bus or train station starts through the interesting Central Market. You can take a trolleybus for one stop, but we didn't bother as it's easy enough on foot.

The hotel is quite a decent place. The room was clean and comfortable. No tea-and-coffee-making facilities or fridge or English TV, but the WiFi worked well. One good point is that the bed was a real double bed. Even the four star hotels we stayed at in Austria did not have that! Breakfast was nothing great, but is included in the room price.

Though it is away from Riga's main attractions, there are some interesting sites in the area, such as the remains of a synagogue that was burnt down with all inside and a nearby monument to those Latvians who saved lives by hiding Jews from the Nazis. There is also the MInistry of Science, a Russian version of the Empire State Building, generally known as "Stalin's Birthday Cake".

Overall, this hotel was good value, considering what a similar place in the old town would have cost.

We stayed at Riverside Hotel in Riga with our friends at the end of May. The rooms were clean, simple, quiet and the hotel had really friendly staff. The breakfast was quite good. Surrounding was ugly, but we traveled by car so the car park below windows was OK. To the old town was a 15 minute walk. Taxi to the town took 5 € and bus 0,60 €/person. Hotel was good value for money.

After many hours driving in circles to find a cheap way to accommodate in Riga we passed by Riverside and stayed for 3 nights.
all the facilities were almost new, comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, etc.

if you travel by car is good to stay here.

Make sure you have a map where this hotel is located since our taxi driver could not find the street on his GPS. However, once you orient yourself with your surroundings you will find out the hotel is located close to public transportation to get you to the Old Town and to a bus or a train station in just a few minutes. The room and the bathroom were pretty big and very clean. The staff was really friendly. I will stay there again if I am ever in Riga again.

Not only the river is missing, all the neighborhood is rather shabby, empty and meaningless. As others have mentioned, you can reach the center by walking in 20 min. but imagine doing it at least twice a day. As you step in into the lobby the first thing you notice is a terrible smell of an old library. The room is simplistic but clean and the bathroom wouldn’t make even a 4* hotel feel ashamed. We hated a plastic matress cover under the sheet which sounded and felt, well, plastic, every time you move. All rooms face a parking lot and a car repair shop. Breakfast is so-so. TV got a selection of only 4 channels. On the other hand, daily cleaning is efficient and internet is fast and reliable.
Considering the price we paid, we find it acceptable although no more than that.
