Stayed twice in a week recently.
First Cabin Haneda locates in Domestic Terminal 1( not too confuse terminal I / i for International terminal)
After 12 hours flight from London landing in early morning at Haneda, I decided to have a rest for 4 hours (08:00am to 12:00pm) before I took next flight to Osaka.
It was great that I was able to have a shower and big bath, have a quiet moment at the lounge and of course was able to lie down on the bed in First class cabin although I could not have a nap as it was busy morning time. (10:00am-12:00pm everyday is cleaning time)
For a short rest, this is much better option rather than paying airport lounge facility near by.
I booked to stay again in a week's time due to fly back to London the following morning.
Again I chose to stay at First class rather than Business class as I had a big luggage and wanted to keep beside me.
To stay this place as comfortable as possible, here's my tips (especially to travellers awaiting for a long haul flight following morning) :
1. I requested to have a furthest end cabin which is the quietest section of all and the best choice if you want to have a decent rest. Staff were very obliging to accept my request.
2. First class is the way to go if you are claustrophobic, it's more like a room. Also, If you want to keep your luggage, there's enough room to manoeuvre. If you are paranoid about security, bring a coiled bicycle lock like I did. You can tie your suitcase around bedside table leg. ( I did not have to use it as I felt safe enough and there is a lockable compartment under the bed)
3. Alarm clock and mobile phone are not supposed to use in the cabin, but for example, if you want to wake up at 4:30am, request for a wake up call (this is manually done by staff) at 4:00 or 4:15 am at the reception(you have to fill a form upon check in), but you should put alarm clock at 4:30am for a peace of mind & just in case.On my first stay, I requested for a wake up call at 11:00am but staff forgot about it and eventually she came to me apologetically at 11:45am!( luckily, I was awake).Human error occurs and your airplane is not going to wait for you.
4. Corporate to keep noise minimum for fellow exhausted travellers.
Try to separate essential item for the stay(make up, clothes etc,) in a small bag,there is a changing room adjacent to female lounge.
5. Give yourself time to have a bath and sit in the massage chair (100yen for 10 mins) before going to bed, it really relaxes you and be able to sleep nicely. Earplug(you can get at reception) and eye mask help,too.
6. Most of the restaurants at terminal 1 close by 21:30 pm. Convenience store near by closes around 23:00pm.
7. Bus stop (to and from International terminal) locates diagonally opposite to First Cabin Haneda on the same floor. Bus comes and goes every 5mins from early morning.Give yourself 15-20mins is enough time from check out to arrival of international terminal.
Overall, it was very comfortable,convenient, clean & cost effective place to stay(for Tokyo) but you need to prepare yourself, you are not staying at conventional hotel. I did quite enjoy semi communal living arrangement! I felt very safe surrounded by likeminded travellers of all ages & the atmosphere was very relaxed.Will stay again when I fly to Haneda.
