The eZONe Cyber Space Hotel, a new hotel built specifically with esports and gaming enthusiasts in mind, has opened in Osaka, Japan. Due to COVID-19, however, the hotel is only accommodating a limited number of guests.
Here’s a look at its facade. At first glance, the building already emits a modern aura that invites all gamers, professional players, and enthusiasts to come and visit.
e-ZONe’s first three floors are designed for use as a high-volume esports gaming arena. Each level is filled with high-spec PC gaming rigs, each built and designed for professional-grade gaming.
The first floor can also serve as a hall for major events and tournaments. Players can take a break on the third floor where the community space and vending machines are located.
The fourth to sixth floors are capsule-type sleepers designed to be used by male customers. The eighth floor area is restricted to female users.
It’s all about privacy and comfort on the seventh floor rooms, where each space is fully equipped with a gaming PC. Two room setups are available — one for professional esports athletes and another for casual gamers.
Esports hotel e-ZONe is located at Nipponbashi in Osaka, Japan. The most affordable accommodations go for as low as US$9 (JP¥1000) while the most exclusive rooms can fetch up to US$75 (JP¥8000) per night.
As a COVID-19 precaution, visitors with a cough or fever are currently not allowed to enter the hotel premises.
