Hotel Magnate is a tycoon/simulator game that gives you the tools to build and manage your own hotel, motel, luxury resort, or shabby shack. It is whatever you make of it.

Beginning with nothing but dreams and an empty lot, you can shape your hotel to your liking. Pick from an assortment of rooms and facilities that will grow both your floorspace and your revenue stream. Build restaurants for the foodies, day spas for the vacationers, and conference halls for the workaholics. There’s a wide range of rooms to choose from.

Once you’ve laid down the foundations, it’s time to pick out the decor. That’s right, you get to customise everything down to the furniture and decorations. Make it wacky, make it classy, or change up the theme from room to room. You will attract different types of guests as your hotel grows and its rating changes, bringing new opportunities and challenges. Remember, the customer is usually wrong, but you’re in the service industry now. Get your hotel in shape, slap on your best smile, and be prepared for whatever comes.

More Info

In Hotel Magnate, your decisions have consequences. Something as simple as selecting which supplier to purchase towels from, or the price of drinks, can have a significant impact on your business. More luxurious fittings will bring you wealthier guests that are harder to please, whilst lowering the price of alcohol may attract trouble.

Here’s a scenario:
You have decided to lower the price of alcoholic beverages, which has resulted in an increase in sales and guest turnover. However, you didn’t foresee your hotel becoming known as a cheap dive or sleazy resort, attracting a younger crowd that has a penchant for partying and property damage. Make your business decisions wisely!

Main features:

Build, furnish, and oversee your own multi-level hotel

Tend to your guests' needs and demands, and attract wealthier clientele by improving facilities and securing better ratings

Hire employees to clean, serve, manage, and maintain your hotel

Take control of the inner-workings of your hotel by managing room prices, wages, restaurants, and many other operations

Become adept at marketing to attract more types of guests and generate buzz

More features:


Build anything from a Fancy City Hotel to a Luxury Island Resort or even just a dirty Airport Hotel/Motel. Create the holiday destination of your dreams with restaurants, bars, conference rooms and all the logistical stuff in-between.


Manage everything in your Hotel by hand selecting staff, setting prices and adding in extras like a free breakfast. Set the rate that your rooms are cleaned and manage the quality of your restaurants and bars.


Market your Hotel with marketing campaigns and attract many different types of guests from Party-goers to Families to Business travelers and much more. Try to raise your Hotels rating with better customer experiences as you try to navigate your way to success

Update #20: October Update

Hello, Magnates!

Welcome back to another devblog after the Kickstarter madness these past few weeks. We have been organising a refined work schedule to match our new capabilities, which has allowed us to ease our way back into a good development rhythm. Thanks again to everyone who helped make this project happen, whether that be by backing us directly on Kickstarter, sharing the project online, or just about any little thing that very clearly went a long way. 

For those who missed out on backing us, don’t worry! We are working on a fair way to offer you early access to the game, but unfortunately this will not include any KS exclusives (as the name entails). 

We are happy to welcome our new programmer. Brad will be helping us further develop our game systems and take Hotel Magnate to new heights. 

Lastly, we want to give another shoutout to our excellent Hotel Helpers over on Discord who are doing an awesome job so we can focus on making the game.

Now, let's get into it!

Alpha Backers Demo Access

If you are one of the backers who pledged towards one of the “Alpha” reward tiers, then you will be pleased to hear that you can access the pre-alpha demo by following the instructions below! We will be updating this demo periodically as improvements are made. 

Existing Crytivo Account

2) Locate the game in your Games Library

3) Click on it, hit download

If you do not have the game tied to your account (likely because you may have used a different email address to back the game), send an email to support at and we will verify your KS pledge and add it to your account.

Feedback & Bug Reporting

We are looking for any feedback from the early tests of our “Building Demo”, which will allow us to identify and fix any bugs that may pop up, add new features you request, and unlock some previously locked features as time goes on. If you have access to the demo, please provide any feedback and suggestions you may have by submitting a form from the link below.

We ask that you check the known issues and FAQs before submitting a report to prevent the same issue being reported multiple times. Thanks!


Thanks to the awesome feedback already received from individuals who have tested the building demo, we have replicated and begun fixing a few problems like improving screen resolutions and scaling, resolving issues with saving and loading, and any weirdness caused by auto-painting rooms and floors. In addition to this, we are also adding in doors and windows that are far more aesthetically pleasing than the ones currently present in the demo. 

Character Models

Below is a sneak-peek at some brand new guest models that are currently being created. Guests alone will have over 400 different visual combinations planned for the Alpha as we will be able to change body shapes, clothing and colours. Get excited!

Before we go, don’t forget to chat with us and the community on Discord! We’ll be waiting!

Lots of love,
