Interestingly named - Riverside: we went in February (circa -15deg during the day and -20 odd deg later) and the river (plus sea) was totally frozen over, with a few locals fishing through the ice.
Hotel compact and nice. Room not large, but fine; cleanen and tidy. Staff friendly and breakfast good.
Location good for us. 15 minutes trudge through snow to the city centre. We walked everywhere; no need for transport within the city. Regular shuttle bus from airport, stopping 15 minutes from hotel.
3 days in Riga was just right. Lots of nice places to visit and coffee shops to pop into to warm up (Double Coffee has become our favourite; we have visited them in Vilnius and Kiev too, and food there is good). We did ice-skating in the open rink, and evening tenpin bowling not far away, and surprisingly cheap.
Enough shops around, and lovely views from the top of the Big Wheel
