Hotel Nikko Saipan
Really hard beds
Over all Hotel Nikko is surprisingly below the quality that I have come to expect from Japanese hotels. Recently the hotel has begun to change their mattresses out; we had one of the new mattresses which was little better then a sheet of plywood with a very thin covering of cloth, no pad, no springs just hard. When we asked the hotel for something softer they said that they could put some blankets on the rock that we were sleeping on or move us to a room on a lower floor 6 where the mattresses were (original maybe), older and presumably softer. When I asked them do they receive complaints about the very hard mattresses they said that they have received some, whatever that means. While generally the service is good, room cleanliness is surprisingly marginal and daily room cleaning is inconsistent at best. Were it not for th e rock hard mattresses and the marginal cleanliness the hotel would not be bad maybe rising to the level of a 2 or 3 star hotel. I would find it hard to recommend this hotel to any one that wanted to actually sleep on their trip.
Note this is in contrast to the very good time we had on Siapan.
Unique Quality: There were nice saltwater pools that had a variety of colorful fish that were quite beautiful; however, I felt that the size of the pools were a little small for the size and number of fish that were living in the pools.
