You’re about to see the paradise for every e-sports fans out there.

Dubbed the first e-sports hotel in Asia, i hotel is a hotel designed for the avid gamer.

Located in Taoyuan, Taiwan, the hotel is about an hour away from Taipei by train.

Great set-up

They’re certainly not playing games when it comes to the set-up.

The rooms are equipped with high-quality gaming equipment such as these DXRacer gaming chairs:

And these Asus desktops:

Lavish bedrooms

Ultimately, a hotel is a place for you to sleep in and the rooms aren’t too shabby themselves.

The furnishing will stop your significant other from nagging at you for bringing them to an e-sports themed hotel.

Just take a look at these rooms:

While the toilet doesn’t have a tub (because that’s the thing that most Singaporeans look forward to when sleeping in a hotel), the marbled tiles do make the washroom feel luxurious.

If you’re not interested in staying for the night, i hotel offers hourly rates too.

The gaming arena

If you’re floored by the rooms, you have not seen the gaming arena at the hotel’s lobby.

Tell me this isn’t the wet dream of any gamer out there:

This is the perfect place to wage a war in Dota 2 and League of Legends with your gaming kakis.

According to Joeman, an esports Youtuber, the 12 computers in the arena are built-in with an i5-7400 processor, 16GB of RAM and a GTX 1080 Ti GPU.
