Travelling is plenty of fun, but hotel rooms themselves are often droll, lifeless spaces. So one chain in Taiwan has come up with a neat alternative: putting high end gaming PCs in every room.

There is the option to pay hourly if you just want to treat the hotel like a netcafe, which is smart on their part, although gaming in a hotel room would feel lonely after a while. So if you’d rather have company, here’s the main lobby area:
