The lounge is located prior to security check, on the 5th floor of the central part of the terminal.
It is located just past the escalator that leads from the main departures floor to the 5th floor. On a pillar, there is a big sign pointing to credit card members lounges. The T.E.I. Lounge is the one right behind it.
After entering the lounge, there is the reception area. Besides the reception desk, there is also a cloakroom, a copy machine and a pair of computers.
Past the reception is a large room which makes up the rest of the lounge. There is the drink area in the corner right past the reception.
There are also some reading materials – although all of them are in Japanese and most of them are promotional pamphlets. Finally, there are rows of lounging chairs arranged with tables and a couple of benches with coffee tables.
There are no restrooms in the T.E.I. Lounge – instead the ones in the main terminal hall need to be used.
Food & Drinks Selection
There is no food in the lounge except for onion soup which can be made out of the provided powder.
On the beverages side, alcoholic drinks need to be paid for. Soft drinks, however, are complimentary. The choice is fairly limited – only a handful of cold drinks types, coffee and tea are available.
T.E.I. Lounge Terminal 1 Summary
The lounge’s very outdated interior combined with no food or snack offerings, and very little choice of drinks make the lounge not worth a visit almost under any circumstances.
In fact, even if this was the only lounge I would have access to, I might still find it preferable to just clear the security and relax airside in the fairly nice gate area instead.
