I read all the reviews and decided on the Himawari - I made the right choice. The location is above a grocery store and fantastic sushi restaurant. The beach is a 5 minute walk, as are many restaurants and shops. The staff are super friendly and helpful, the rooms all have wifi, the shower has hot and cold water with good water pressure, it was clean, quiet and inexpensive. I stayed 2 nights and they provided airport transport both directions at no extra charge. The rooms are practical, not fancy - and the shop below, besides grocery items, sells fresh baked breads which were soooo delicious and Japanese meals - they even have a microwave for customer use and fresh brewed coffee. Perfect stay!

The Himawari is a little hotel built atop a Japanese grocery store located in a quiet residential street 2 streets aways from the main strip in Saipan. To get to the room, you walk through the grocery store to a door in the back that leads to a well-lit and well-ventilated staircase up to the rooms

The rooms are very basic with mismatched furnishings - but large and clean. Free wifi is available throughout the hotel. While I initially had problems with the password provided in the check-in instructions, this was quickly solved by the Japanese manager who gave me a couple other passwords to try. There are also a couple washing machines for use (not sure the cost) and airport pickup / drop-off is available for free for those who stay a minimum of 2 nights. I communicated with the hotel by email before the trip and they were quick and informative in all their responses.

As the hotel is built on top of a grocery store, it's really convenient when you need to pick up drinks / food / supplies. The grocery store has a bakery attached that sells fresh baked breads, and a cooked-food section that sells soups, tempura, onigiri and Japanese-style meals (rice with meat/fish and a side). There is a microwave next to the cashier to heat up the food and you can bring whatever is bought to eat in the Japanese restaurant a few paces away. The grocery store is well patronised by locals who come in in a constant stream to pick up groceries from early morning till closing at 11pm.

As the hotel is only a few hundred meters away from the main strip, exploring the area on foot is easy and restaurants / shops are within easy reach.

This is a great litlle hotel for the budget traveller with all the necessary conveniences provided.
