According to CNN, the Haneda Excel Hotel Tokyu has spent $ 92,000 to install the flight simulator in the room.

And Aki Hagiwara, a public relations manager at the hotel, said the idea of ​​including the simulator in a room was to embrace the proximity of the accommodation and attract aviation enthusiasts.

She added that the reaction to the room had been very positive so far.

The Haneda Excel Hotel Tokyu is connected to the Terminal 2 building of Haneda Airport.

And if guests are not lucky enough to get a booking for the superior cockpit area, there are other rooms in the hotel that overlook the airport runway.
