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.

As reported by Mashable, the i hotel in Taiwan has two gaming computers in every room, fitted out with DXRacer gaming chairs:

Each computer, comes with an i5-7400 Intel CPU, 16GB RAM, GTX 1080 Ti GPU and 32″ ASUS ROG screens. The hotel’s a fair way out from Taipei – about an hour’s train ride, according to Google Maps – and one room will set you back around $100 a night.

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:

There’s a walkthrough video courtesy of YouTuber Joeman. None of it’s in English, but its enough to give you a better idea of what the place is like.
