Have you ever had a problem with your hotel service? Unclean sheets? Lost your room key? Unaccommodating hotel staff? The Henn-na Hotel in Japan, set to open in July, wants you to have a comfortable and relaxing stay with the help of friendly service robots, who are there to serve you.
The owners of the one-of-a-kind Henn-na Hotel – aka the ‘Strange Hotel’ – hope that this will be a breakthrough in the hospitality industry, with low costs and ‘world-class’ productivity, all at a reasonable price for the client.
The first building will be opening on 17 July in Huis Ten Bosch, a theme park in Sasebo, Japan. It has 72 rooms and will be managed by Kawazoe Lab, the Institute of Industrial Science, University of Tokyo and Kajima Corporation.
