Last year a unique hotel run only by robots made news after it opened its first location in Nagasaki Prefecture and now the hotel is making headlines again after it announced that it will be opening a second location in Chiba Prefecture in 2017.
As of March 15th, 2017 people visiting the city of Maihama in Chiba Prefecture will have the opportunity to be waited upon by robots during their stay at Henn-na Hotel’s newest location. The hotel, whose name literally means “Weird Hotel,” opened its first location in July of 2015 in the city of Sasebo in Nagasaki Prefecture on the grounds of the Huis Ten Bosch amusement park. The hotel gained significant attention around the world for being the world’s first robot staffed hotel. Guests that enter Henn-na Hotel can expect to be greeted by robot check-in clerks. They can also look forward to a robot concierge, porter and an in-room robot assistant, plus many other unique features. A video showcasing some of Henn-na Hotel's robots can be seen below.
