Just came back from a 4 day stay at the Radisson SAS Daugava Hotel - it is indeed on the wrong side of the river from the old city - however, the service and the rooms were great, the breakfast was very good and the staff were 100%. Strong recomendation.
you should however remember one import thing - It costs 2.5 Lv (about 5$) for a taxi to the old city. Allways use red taxi's and insist that they put on the meter. if not you will pay double 5 lv (about $10) for a simple trip of 3 min to the old city.
- Free Wifi
- Breakfast included
