It might be time to book your next holiday to Amsterdam if you’re a die hard gamer like we are here at TheEffect.Net HQ! The Arcade Hotel has recently opened its doors and has some fantastic features for gamers and comic book fans alike.

In each of its 36 rooms, you’ll find a ‘vintage’ console, be it an original Xbox or PS1 along with a video game rental system in place and free games to play in each of the room. That’s not all, you can also pick up one of the handheld consoles from reception too and have a bit of a multiplayer battle in the lobby. Finally, for you comic book nerds out there, there’s a comic book library in the hotel too!


We absolutely love the sound of this place and will definitely be checking it out the next time we’re in Amsterdam. It looks like an extremely stylish hotel too!
