About Hotel Riverside

Positioned among swaying palm trees beside the Baga River as it empties into the Arabian Sea on India's west coast, Hotel Riverside is a laid-back property that features on-site dining and an outdoor swimming pool. The hotel is roughly ten minutes' walk from the sandy Goa Beach.

Along with air conditioning and a private bathroom, the cosy rooms at Hotel Riverside all contain a 32-inch flat-screen television and balcony with river/pool views. Deluxe rooms also boast a minibar and tea/coffee-making facilities.

Free Wi-Fi is accessible in the accommodation's public spaces, while on-site parking is possible for those arriving in their own vehicle.

Open throughout the day, the Riverside Café serves everything from snacks to authentic Chinese and Indian cuisine. The relaxed on-site bar with poolside seating serves an array of beverages.

Baga town centre is less than 15 minutes on foot from the hotel. A little further afield, the buzzing Saturday Night Market is a five-minute drive away.

Positive Reviews

Nice location near Baga Beach

Mainly due to it being within comfortable walking distance of Baga Beach, the hotel's location is popular with guests. In addition to this, the property is also in close proximity to various shops, markets and restaurants in Baga.

Enjoyable outdoor pool

The outdoor swimming pool is a frequent hit with visitors to the accommodation. It is usually mentioned that the pool is spacious and a nice place to unwind during the day.

Great views on offer

Guests have often highlighted one positive feature of the hotel's rooms: the views provided. Thanks in part to the private balconies, the rooms all supply reportedly great sights, in particular those facing the river.

Negative Reviews

Lack of support from staff

When it comes to customer service, the hotel is somewhat lacking – an opinion shared by many travellers. It is claimed that, along with not being very friendly or welcoming, the staff members are far from helpful when assistance is needed.

Poor Wi-Fi quality

The standard of the Wi-Fi is routinely condemned by those that used the service during their stay at the hotel. It is noted that the range of the Wi-Fi is severely lacking, with it apparently only being usable in the reception area of the property.

Rooms in need of improvement

The majority of visitors are left disappointed about the general quality of the accommodation's rooms. While the rooms are said to be spacious, their maintenance and overall quality are both often questioned in a negative light.
