There's A Gaming Hotel In Taiwan And It's Everything Dreams Are Made Of

There's A Gaming Hotel In Taiwan And It's Everything Dreams Are Made Of

There's an old saying that goes like this: "Couples who game together, stay together."


The phrase was penned way, way back, when it first appeared in the Bible, which is some foresight when you consider the first console didn't come along until a few hundred years later.

But a hotel in Taiwan has decided to honour this message sent from the heavens above by offering gaming rigs for guests in their rooms.


The life-changing holiday experience, called iHotel, comes with two computers with i5-7400 processors, 16GB of RAM and a GTX 1080 Ti GPU. That's some serious computing power that should cater for all your gaming needs.

But not only will the machine you work with be incredible, but the good people at iHotel want you to be comfortable. There's DXRacer gaming chairs in every room, and of course they're side-by-side so you don't have to turn far to scream at your other half if they're fucking you over in multiplayer mode.

Isn't love sweet?

You'll be paying around $100 (£73) a night for the room, Mashable reports, or, if you're not want to stay a whole night then you can pay an hourly rate which is just $12 (£8.85) during weekends, or meet the hotel in the middle and pay $75 (£55) for 15 hours.

There's also a 46-inch TV screen to watch eSports on, as well as a larger gaming arena in the lobby where, if you fancy a break from your partner, you can game with strangers, or a group of friends. If you have any.

It can be found in the Taoyuan district, which is about an hour's train ride away from Taipei, Taiwan.

But WAIT, there's more.

Because iHotel doesn't want to be too niche, and because it's a five-star joint, there are plenty of other things that can keep you relaxed or busy.

YouTuber Joeman took his camera around the hotel for a virtual tour, showing off all the features you get to experience during your stay.

Admittedly the video is in Chinese, meaning that it's useless to a lot of us, but there's something about a toilet filled with technology that can inspire interest in any language.


Because of where we are in the human race, Joeman loads up the intro of an adult film, just to see what it's like on the 4K screens. I mean, someone had to do it, didn't they?
