It can sometimes be difficult to fall asleep. Some people want to have a window open to keep the room cool, while others use the sound of white noise to sink outside of the distraction. A Japanese hotel has a slightly different idea about what helps its customers sleep: a full-sized flight simulator installed in one of its rooms based on a Boeing 737-800 cockpit.

In all honesty with the Haneda Excel Hotel Tokyu, it sounds like the flight simulator is meant to be enjoyed by its patrons while they are awake, rather than when they are asleep. Kotaku reports that an overnight stay in the room costs 25,300 yen (about $ 233), or you can book yourself a 90-minute lesson with a flight instructor for 30,000 yen (about $ 277). The hotel itself is also connected to Haneda, Tokyo International Airport, as if you need more aircraft exposure during your visit.

That is actually a lot cheaper, not to mention a much cooler, than the decadent gaming hotel room from Alienware that built it at the Hilton Panama last year. Although the space was equipped for its time with a fairly advanced game machine with a Core i7-7800 CPU and an Nvidia GTX 1800 Ti graphics card connected to a 65-inch OLED TV, the room was priced more expensive at $ 349 per night.

Haneda Excel Hotel Tokyu & # 39; s page for the room does not mention which software the flight simulator uses, but the announcement comes just after Microsoft has announced the first new mention in it Flight Simulator series in more than half a decade.
