A Japanese hotel replaced its employees with smart robots
We want to attract your attention to one really curious place of relaxation.
This facility is located in Sasebo, Japan, and is called The Henn-na Hotel, which in fact means “The Strange Hotel”. The most interesting thing about it is the fact that the doors of the rooms have no keys, and that the service staff has been replaced by the latest generation of robots.
Visitors can enter their rooms through face recognition terminals and have the option of controlling all devices in their rooms via their tablet.
The robots are not only located at the front desk. There are a range of other robots that help the guests to accommodate, clean rooms, carry luggage, and serve food and drink. You can even talk to friendly machines.
There is also an option to use smart card access to the rooms if guests do not want to trust the facial recognition technologies.
The innovative hotel already accepts visitors and offers for now 72 rooms, but their number is expected to be increased to 144 in the future.
The price for a one-night stay is about € 67.
