Check it Out! “Haneda Excel Hotel Tokyu” Explicit Review

"Haneda Excel Hotel Tokyu" is connected to the departure lobby of Haneda Airport Terminal 2, so it is very convenient for people flying into, or flying out of the airport. In the guest room facing the runway, you can see the arrival and departure of airplanes through the window and it is a popular hotel for people who like planes. This time I stayed at this hotel to write about the “Superior Cockpit Room,” a guest room equipped with a flight simulator simulating the Boeing 737-800.

What is the appearance of the hotel? Check the entrance and reception

“Haneda Excel Hotel Tokyu” is connected to Haneda Airport Terminal 2.

The hotel is 7 stories tall on the West wing and is 5 stories tall on the East wing. The photo shows the building of the West Wing.

The hotel entrance is at the end of the departure lobby of Haneda Airport Terminal 2.

Once you step out of the hotel, you are already at the departure lobby, so it is very convenient for early departures and late arrivals.

At the entrance, there is a sign which shows the routes of 32 cities around the world from Haneda Airport with a three-letter code.

The front of the entrance was decorated with a sofa and a mini-airplane from Sorashido Air.

Behind the sofa was a restaurant called “Flyers Table” with a bright aand open space.

There is also a display in the lobby where you can check information about domestic flights.

The front desk is on the right after entering the hotel.

I could see Tokyo Bay through the roof of the airport terminal and the building in the east wing of the hotel.

I could see Tokyo Sky Tree in the distance and part of the runway as well. If you want to take a closer look at the plane, I recommend a room facing the runway in the East wing.

At night, the light leaking from the terminal and the lights on the runway were beautiful.

The lights from the city over Tokyo Bay looked beautiful.

Restaurants in the hotel

There was a restaurant called “Flyers Table” on the second floor near the front desk.

The restaurant was bright and open. There are three private rooms in this restaurant.

From April 2018, the scenery from inside the store has been damaged due to the influence of surrounding construction, so a screen that can enjoy various images of flights has been installed.

This restaurant is an all-day dining and is open from 5am to 12pm (last order 11:30 pm).

A wide selection of Japanese and Western à la carte menus are available, with a buffet of Japanese and Western dishes in the morning, noodles such as pasta and Chinese noodles in the morning, a la carte menu such as rice, and a lunch course.

There are vending machines on each floors.

Next to the vending machines was an ice machine, microwave oven, video on demand (VOD) viewing card vending machine where you can watch content such as movies and programs in your room.

Introducing other rooms! Standard Twin Bed Room

This room had two semi double beds.

Everything other than the bed was the same as the room which I stayed in .

Introducing other rooms! Deluxe Double Bed Room

The room itself is an ordinary room with a bed, a table, two chairs, and a TV.

The feature of this room is the view on the runway. You can enjoy the airplane taking off from the runway to the sky and the also the view of Tokyo Bay.

Introducing other rooms! The Premier Flyers Room

The feature of this room is that a first class seat is set in the room. There is only one room in this hotel that is this style.

TV and desk.

First class seats placed by the window! When the seat is turned on, it becomes flat with a fully automatic method. You can enjoy a luxurious space just like a private room.

Outside the window is the runway, so you can sit in a first class seat and watch the planes! It would be an interesting experience even if you are not a fan of planes.

Introducing other rooms! Superior Cockpit Room

This room is equipped with a flight simulator that mimics the Boeing 737-800 and was just made in July 2019.

A 90-minute flight simulator experience plan that allows you to experience airplane operation under the guidance of an instructor who is familiar with the equipment, including the former captain who actually has flight experience, and an accommodation plan (sitting on the seat in the simulator and instruments) you can enjoy the view of the sky at Haneda Airport seen from the cockpit.

Hotel surroundings

The hotel is connected to Haneda Airport Terminal 2 building, so there are various restaurants and you can also enjoy shopping at the airport!

Departure lobby.

Staff and guests

The response of the staff was good.

Because it is a hotel at the domestic terminal, most of the customers were Japanese. From around spring 2020, part of Terminal 2 will be compatible with international flights, so the number of foreigners is likely to increase in the future.

Access

It is convenient to use public transportation such as trains and buses to Haneda Airport where the hotel is located.

Summary

I had a nice stay at this hotel. The room was cleaned well and I was able to spend a comfortable time. Also, I never got board watching the planes take off and land on the runway. There were many people staying without getting on the plane, and also many people who stay just to check out Haneda Airport.
