Tokyo Airport Hotel Has its Own In-Room Flight Simulator

By Paul Joseph

There are themed hotels and then there’s the Haneda Excel Hotel Tokyu in Japan, which is not only an airport hotel but also now boasts a guest room that comes complete with its own flight simulator.

Called the “Superior Cockpit Room”, the room features a full-size Boeing 737-800 flight simulator that can be rented by guests for the ultimate in-room entertainment.

The airport hotel is connected to Terminal 2 of Haneda International Airport in Tokyo and is said to be the only hotel in the world with such a facility.  

The idea was conceived by the hotel’s general manager in an attempt to differentiate the brand from the thousands of other hotels in Tokyo.

Guests at the hotel are also able to experience piloting a Boeing 737-800, flying from Haneda to Osaka’s Itami Airport, with the help of an instructor.

While using the simulator costs 30,000 Yen ($277), the room rate itself rounds up to 25,300 Yen ($234).

 Haneda Excel Hotel Tokyu is located in the business district of Tokyo.
