The Haneda Excel Hotel takes 'airport hotel' to another level
The Haneda Excel Hotel - at Tokyo's International Airport - takes the term 'airport hotel' to another level.
The hotel has a flight simulator installed in one of its rooms allowing guests to book a 90- minute flying session.The simulator lets you experience piloting a Boeing 737-800. It has its own route as well, taking off from Haneda flying over to Itami Airport in Osaka.
Using the simulator costs 30,000 Yen ($277), while booking the room for the night is an additional 25,300 Yen ($234).
Throughout your flying experience you get an instructor, who will guide you through a successful flight. Guests will not be permitted to operate the simulator by themselves.
The idea comes from the hotel's general manager, who wanted to make the hotel standout from other airport hotels, and so leaned in to the whole 'airport' thing.
