I recently stayed in Raks with my family.. Found the place neat and tidy. The manager was helpful and so were the support staff. Food served in the restaurant was OK. Although the hotel is away from major tourist attractions, it is worth considering this hotel as an option to stay considering its price.

Was worth of the cost we paid. Rooms were clean and tidy. Restrooms were clean. No-smoke smell. WiFi is there in reception area only. Not walk-able from Bus-terminus. Would recommend for people who like to stay in a budget hotel with personal vehicle.
