If several equipment are broken in a month, half of the profit this month may go in.

In different city levels, the survival status of e-sports hotels is completely different. In second- and third-tier cities, most of the e-sports hotels are transformed from Internet cafes, so the decoration facilities are generally simple and can only meet the demand of "e-sports + sleeping". The selling price ranges from 200 to 400, which is acceptable to student groups. Affordable consumption, and can greatly meet the entertainment needs of young people, so the occupancy rate is relatively ideal, the weekend is basically full of rooms, it can pay back in about one or two years, faster than traditional hotels.
