Hotel Empire Tycoon is a management and idle game where in you manage a hotel by doing upgrades and hiring staff to grow your hotel. You start with a small hotel with little rooms and as you slowly strategize to earn money, you get to be able to buy things for your rooms, restaurants, parking, bars and even the reception so that it could give you a profit.
What's interesting about this game is that it's a mixture of both management and idle game. Management in a sense because you need to do upgrades for each area of your hotel so that each part can earn big and idle game in a sense that you can just leave it for a couple of hours and it makes money by itself. It's a win win if you ask us.
As mentioned above, you start of with a small hotel with cheap furniture and limited rooms. There would be guest coming in and out looking for a vacant room to stay in. The profit at the start of the game would be slow since you have "cheap" items at the beginning.
In the game, there are some list of goals that you need to finish to be able to earn money or gems. Once the goals are achieve, this will be earned in your virtual money that can be used to upgrade a room or business in your hotel.
Just like in any management game, if there are inadequate number of staff to serve your customer, the customer gets angry and walks away. So make sure you have a good number of staff to satisfy all customers.
In the Management part of the game, there are statistics or reports as to which portion is profitable or not. Don't panic if you can't get a green figure at the beginning. It is best to study which one should be upgraded first to get a profitable margin.
There are also a limited amount of rooms that can be build.
Once you get hang of it, you will start profiting more money than you could possibly imagine.
Although you cannot choose what kind of "design" you would like to have in the room, but if you have already upgraded most of the items, you would get a pretty cute design. Upgrading items costs you money that you earn from visitors.
The more you upgrade, the more money it costs (just like in real life).
There is also an item that you can purchase using gems. Gems can be bought by buying in app purchase or by achieving goals.
There are 3 hotels that you can open but this is based on how many stars your hotel has already achieved. We have already opened 2 hotels. The 2nd one is bigger than the first one. We are excited to see what the 3rd one might bring us.
We were quite surprised that this game brought us "joy" for a short amount of time despite being an idle game. We definitely recommend this if you're one of those types that just want an easy game and have a thrill of being "rich" in the virtual world.
