The staff at this hotel might be a little rusty when it comes to customer service but it’s hardly surprising as the place is run almost entirely by ROBOTS.
From the multi-lingual robots that check you in, to the robotic arm that will store your luggage and the porter robots that will carry your bags to your room – the Henn na Hotel in Tokyo Bay has to be seen to be believed.
Bizarrely the futuristic hotel features more than 140 ‘staff’ robots and just seven human members of staff and there is even an aquarium complete with mini robotic fish.
Each of the 100 rooms has state-of-the-art facial recognition technology so guests don’t need a room key and a small egg shaped robot is also inside every room ready to take commands from guests such as turning on the television.
The extraordinary hotel opens its doors to the public today (March 15) less than two years after the same company, H. I. S Group, launched their first robot hotel in Nagasaki – which was recognised as the first of its kind in the world by Guinness World Records.
