The ultimate destination for esports fans, this new hotel in Hangzhou, China will open its doors later this month. The brainchild of Chinese tech companies Tencent Games and Ouyu Technology, the hotel serves to cater to China’s ever-growing gaming community.

Reasons to check-in: Not only does the esports hotel offer high-quality and comfortable gaming experiences, but it also allows guests to step into the shoes of professional players by offering boot camps and their very own PC game.

The hotel’s rooms were respectively inspired by five major esports leagues in China, including King Pro, Peacekeeper Elite, CrossFire Pro, Speed, and All Games. Each comes with comfortable chairs and giant screens for in-house gameplay.

As mentioned earlier, boot camps are also part of the hotel’s offerings. Guests can take advantage of the esports incubator’s training areas, tests, and live streamings of professional gamers to take their own skills to the next level.

Customer service is all part of any hospitality experience, and at the esports hotel, virtual hotel manager cum gaming coach Veegy is permanently on duty. In addition to making video recommendations and presenting guests with their team rankings, the avatar is also capable of testing and evaluating guests’ talents.


China is home to the world’s biggest communities of gamers (488 million), which has a market value of 147 billion RMB (around 23 million USD). High-profile gamers like Uzi, who has earned half a million dollars from competing in 41 tournaments, are setting a precedent for droves of Chinese youth, who are considering professional gaming as a career path. Some Chinese universities have even introduced esports majors to their syllabi to meet demand.
