Gamer Hotels Coming Up In Amsterdam For Game Savvy Travelers: The Arcade Hotel
A new bunch of categories has to be added among hotels and lodging finder websites as a niche called "gamer hotels" is rapidly creeping up the metropolis in Amsterdam. The Arcade Hotel is the first one of its kind, started in Amsterdam, Netherland.
If theres anything that travelers miss while on trips is their favorite pass time while gaming, although this is not the motive behind travelling, but still there are people who crave for this, and The Arcade Hotel, is ready to serve them in Amsterdam. The hotel is aptly named for gamers since they provide the best amenities for gamers like consoles and handhelds in every room and not just in the recreation hall, where probably other places might have installed something of this sort. This is, however, the first of its kind to bring gaming the mainstream attraction of the hotel. It is located in De Pijps area where they have 36 rooms, each with gratis consoles and games.
In addition, they also provide an opportunity to mingle with other guests at their bar with loner handhelds for multiplayer engagements. There is also an entire library dedicated to comics for your perusal. Hence, from the room interiors to exteriors the hosts have made it sure that you love your stay in Amsterdam as much as you love to stay at home. The idea is really simple and seems to attract a lot of people who miss that thing while on vacation for weeks. However, it is yet to see how this niche grows around since it is sure to bring competitors very soon. It is also curious to see how this segment of hotels comes up in other places of the world that bring tech-savvy tourists such as U.K.
When you want to leave your room for an outing, you can also have borrowable bikes from their fleet and explore the town. In this regard, it is also skeptical to see how well does it respond to customers since people who come as tourists would have already planned their days ahead for site visits, and probably the gaming will be more like a break in the early morning or sometime when they are not in the mood to go outside. However, only time can tell how it catches up among guests?
