The Superior Cockpit Room at the Japan’s Haneda Excel Hotel, Tokyo is now serving as a flight simulator for rent during the day and a standard hotel room at night. The airplane and flight simulator enthusiasts may want to add the Haneda Excel Hotel Tokyu to their bucket list. Overlooking the Haneda Airport, the Japanese hotel has installed a Boeing 737-800 flight simulator in one of its rooms which it is aptly calling the Superior Cockpit Room.
The guests can rent time on the flight simulator – complete with an instructor – during the day. A 90-minute block goes for 30,000 yen. At night, an acrylic board is placed over the flight controls and the room doubles as a standard hotel room priced at 25,300 yen ($233).
It’s a unique amenity for sure, especially if you’re really into flight simulators. Best yet, Haneda Excel Hotel Tokyu sits right near the airport so you can soak in some take-offs and landings – again, great for plane spotting. Its proximity to the airport also makes it incredibly convenient for travel purposes.
The check-in time at Haneda Excel Hotel Tokyu is 6 p.m. and check-out is at 10 a.m. Presumably, this is a single-night rental only so that guests can’t stay multiple nights in a row as they need access to the flight simulator during the day.
