I started playing Hotel City by Playfish this morning. I was kinda thinking that this game could just be similar to HomeInn and I was right. Although I could tell at once that Hotel City was better than HomeInn, I still couldn't stop from comparing these two Facebook apps. (As mentioned, Home City is a lot more fun than the other hotel game I've tried)
Anyway, after trying to figure out Hotel City for 30 minutes, I must admit that the game's addicting. It doesn't need an expert to understand the rules of the game:
1.) a player is given a vacant hotel to start with
2.) give your hotel a name and hire friends to work for you
3.) there's a 50,000 bonus coin to have the hotel started
4.) use the 50,000 coins to buy/build hotel rooms and facilities
---earn 1XP and 1 coin for each person that stays a Budget Room (your starting room)
---earn 3XP and 3 coins for each person that stays a Small Room (unlocks at level3)
---earn 7XP and 7 coins for each person that stays a Big Room (unlocks at level14)
---earn 10XP and 10 coins for each person that stays a High Ceiling Room (unlocks at level32)
---earn 2XP and 2 coins for each person that stays a Gym (Holds 3 people) (unlocks at level3)
---earn 3XP and 3 coins for each person that stays a Posh Restaurant (Holds 3 people) (unlocks at level9)
---earn 1XP and 1 coins for each person that stays a Bar (Holds 6 people) (unlocks at level19)
---earn 6XP and 6 coins for each person that stays a Swimming Pool (Holds 3 people) (unlocks at level 24)
---earn 1XP and 1 coins for each person that stays an Arcade (Holds 3 people) (unlocks at level 24)
5.) when your hotel already have rooms, you will start having customers/guests
6.) renovate the rooms/add furniture and appliances to make your hotel a bit realistic
7.) that's it!
I am sure that you will like Hotel City as much as I do.
By the way, here are some Hotel City screenshots and tips:
do not forget to click the coin pouch that you find in your neighbors' hotel as each pouch contains 400 bonus coins for you!
and yes... you can leave your hotel anytime... just do not forget to come back to feed your employees!Another two tips you might want to remember is to click on your sleeping guests once in awhile as they might give you 400 bonus coins and of course --- send gifts to your friends!
