We are planning on cruising from Budapest to Amsterdam in September, 2014 then cruising the Seine from Paris followed by a South of France River cruise.

We are new to river cruising - is there a particular side of any of the ships that we should be selecting.

Thank you. Looks like it is not all that important. One thing less to ponder over.

On a river cruise the side of the ship really doesn't make much difference. The ships dock on both sides and at times are tied up next to other ships. I would look at what is above or below your selected cabin, how close it is to the stairs/elevator, and how close the cabin is to the dining room and lounge.
