Henn na Hotel has been recognized by Guinness World Record as "the first robot-staffed hotel" in the world. The lobby images the age of dinosaurs, and at the front desk, you will be greeted by multilingual robots who will handle the check-in and check-out process for you. The dinos are robots, of course, and it’s the first act of a hotel stay that’s free of human interaction. The hotel is not only unique with the robot operation, but is made environmentally friendly, and offers comfortable stay with the newest model mattress.

One of the definitions of the Japanese word “Henn” is “to change,” which represents their commitment for evolution in striving for the extraordinary sensation and comfort that lies beyond the ordinary. The unique experience will take guests one step into the future. It goes without saying that the location of these hotels in resorts and theme parks highlights the novelty of them, and we think it will be quite some time before we see regular business hotels or the like manned by machines.

The hotel is the second robot-operated hotel to launch in Japan, and is located just outside the Disney theme park in Urayasu. The robot-hotel is planning on expanding around the world over the next five years, reports The Japan Times. During the opening ceremony for the hotel, the CEO, Hideo Sawada said “the goal is not about being strange, it’s about transforming and evolving.”

The gimmicky hotel received a lot of press attention in Japan and overseas, but it has proved to have staying power beyond its wacky concept. Certainly, the likes of Pepper in SoftBank stores and other places has also contributed to the ordinariness of seeing robots in Japan today.
