Perfect for those who want to game after they sightsee… or just game instead of sightsee.

Preparing for a trip overseas can be stressful. Just finding lodging that is both convenient and won’t break the bank can be a long and frustrating process. This task gets even more challenging when you’re picky about certain amenities. For example, if you want to stay at a hotel that has several dozen top-of-the-line gaming PCs on hand, then your choises will be extremely limited. As of this coming spring, however, anyone visiting the city of Osaka will be able to stay at such a hotel.

Set to open in April of 2020, e-ZONe Dennō Kūkan (English: Cyberspace) is a nine story hotel being marketed as Japan’s first “esports hotel.”

The first three floors of e-ZONe Dennō Kūkan will house private booths featuring powerful gaming PCs. The three floors will be able to have up 71 of these booths.

Floors four through eight will be dedicated to the sleeping quarters. And the basement will house the shower facilities.

The team behind e-ZONe Dennō Kūkan says that their hotel is good for many different kinds of people, including those who just want to try esports for the first time, those who would like to hold an in-person meet-up with gamer friends, and those who want to do some intensive practice before a big game tournament.

In addition to functioning as a hotel e-ZONe Dennō Kūkan also plans to use its facilities to host esports events.

It is not yet known how much a stay at e-ZONe Dennō Kūkan will cost. However, since it appears that not every room has its own shower, this suggests that room rates will be on the lower end of the spectrum (perhaps comparable to a capsule hotel). It is also not known if guests will have to pay a separate fee to use the gaming PCs.
