Henn-na Hotel in Sasebo, Japan, will open to the public on Friday. Henn-na Hotel translates to English as “Strange Hotel,” which is apt because it is staffed with robots! The management insists that the robots are there for maximum efficiency and to cut labor costs, but we know publicity from the novel idea won’t hurt business a bit.
Upon check-in, guests will be greeted by multi-lingual humanoid and dinosaur receptionists. Other robots in the lobby greet visitors, serve coffee and act as concierge. Robots bring the guests' luggage to their rooms, which, by the way, are opened by face-recognition technology.
