Stayed here for 6 nights using Priority Club points and got Platinum upgrade to executive room on third floor looking out over internal atrium. The room was excellent, large and luxuriously furnished. Great flat screen TV, nicely appointed bathroom with jacuzzi jet bath and lots of storage space and seating. Had no problem with noise. Air conditioning was powerful and reliable. Got mineral water every day and an impressive fresh fruit platter on first day. Staff were very helpful and polite, nice touch when security man would call elevator and indicate which one would open as you approached. Location is very good for Airport and Metro Red and Green lines as Khalid Bin Al Waleed metro station is less than 5 minutes walk away and is an interchange station between the two lines - my favourite place was the Creek which is only a couple of stops away or you can walk. Bur Jurman shopping mall is also within 5 minutes walk with excellent stores and food outlets. If arriving at Metro station exit at Exit 4 for Hotel - look for RAK Bank towards your right as you exit and hotel is right opposite that Bank (but you won't be able to see it) - either walk across sandy vacant lot and turn right or walk along road that RAK Bank is on. Exit 3 will take you to the shopping mall. Taxi to Terminal 1 at 5.30 am cost only 17 AED. The roof top swimming pool, whilst not massive, was very nice with loungers and staffed bar, I enjoyed popping up there in the late afternoon to cool down and rest - in October the pool goes into shade in the late afternoon which was quite welcome! I would recommend this hotel and would definitely return again.
