Japanese hotel replaces its entire staff with robots

Want to stay in the future? Check in to the Weird Hotel in Japan, where the entire staff is robotic

If you've ever wanted to stay in a unique hotel, we would suggest the Weird Hotel in Japan, where nearly every single person working at the hotel, is a robot. The receptionist when you check-in, the porter that's an automated trolley taking luggage to your room, it is nearly all run by robots.


In order to check-in, you'll need to talk to a female robot, the one that you see above. But, they've also got a dinosaur robot that we have pictured below, a robot that will greet you when you first arrive at the Weird Hotel. The reason for the use of robots throughout the hotel is to save money, but we're wanting to know how the guests will feel about the lack of a human touch.


Japan's Weird Hotel also features facial recognition technology at the doors, so you'll only be allowed into your room, and not someone with your key. You can stay at the Weird Hotel for around $80 for a night, with the hotel opening its robotic doors on July 17.
