Habbo Hotel consists of separate worlds, each slightly different, although with many points in common. Each hotel is dedicated to a specific country, however you tend to find a good mix of people from all over the world in each hotel. There are over 30 Habbo Hotels to choose from, including United States, Singapore, United Kingdom, Mexico and even Norway.
You can have your own customized avatar there, and avatars are called Habbos. This virtual world has an interesting chat system, which is limited, by distance. Up to five tiles away, you can hear the normal chat of another. However, as you move further away, the text becomes more and more garbled until it just appears as a collection of dots. This interface shows a semblance of how normal conversation might appear and allows several conversations to go on in the same room, without interrupting each other.
If the social life is the life for you, you can chat, roam, gossip all day and chatter all night. You can be the heart of the party, and you can be the soul. You will experience the drive to chatter, the need to gossip, stretching out, making connections, mind against mind, heart against heart. It will keep you going!
Habbo Hotel is at heart a purely social environment. The wide variety of public rooms emphasise this fact, with pizza parlours, cafe shops, hallways lined with plants and benches, night clubs, at least one theatre per hotel, and a great many lobbies.
There are games in private apartments, where you can win Mobis (furniture) or credits to be exchanged against the furniture, or work and get paid.
For some, its the thrill of discovery, the freedom to strike out, to pioneer. Whether its mapping new lands, or exploring unknown fields of endeavour, to be first, to boldly go, this is what explorers live for.
There is some scope for explorers. The main hotel in each building has a wide collection of rooms, all different, and many which go on and on and on. In addition, most members have their own rooms, though the majority of these are small, as room size, costs money.
Habbo Hotel is patrolled 24 hours a day by trained, professional staff called Moderators. They can be recognised by their badges. Moderators can alert, kick and ban Habbos who break the rules. Moderators can be asked for help from any room in the hotel through the blue question mark.
Ultimately, Habbo is small enough that you can see more or less everything. It is an addictive and fun virtual world.
