Taiwan’s iHotel has gaming PCs in every room

Most people use hotel rooms for rest and relaxation.

But at a new hotel in Taiwan, the emphasis is on frantic mouse-clicking.

The i Hotel, located in Taoyuan City, has installed state-of-the-art gaming computers in every room.

Game on: The i Hotel’s machines are powered by the super-fast GeForce 1080 Ti graphics card and are 4K-ready

Pictures reveal that guests there enjoy two top-end gaming rigs, DXRacer chairs and 32in TV monitors, as well as immaculate linen and decor with muted tones.

Keen to ensure they win geeky residents over, the hotel’s machines are powered by the super-fast GeForce 1080 Ti graphics card and are 4K-ready.

And, if guests are too eager to wait until check-in, there are gaming machines in the lobby, too.

The hotel, which allows its communal facilities to double as an internet cafe, is reasonably priced at 3,000 TND per night (£73).   

But, as if that wasn’t enough, the journey from check-in to game-on is also executed thoughtfully.

As the hotel lift arrives at a guest’s desired floor, they are serenaded with the Imperial March theme from Star Wars.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, it could be an ideal destination for gamer couples – who’ve rated it an average of 8.0 on Booking.com for a two-person stay.

There, it has an overwhelmingly positive response and and overall ‘very good’ rating. 

The hotel is a two-minute walk from Shin Kong Mitsukoshi and Tonlin department stores. It is a 20-minute drive from Taoyuan International Airport and the Taoyuan High Speed Railway Station.
