Staffed by multilingual robots (yes, robots), travelers are sure to have a memorable stay at the Henn-na Hotel located in Nagasaki, Japan. Robots (one of which is an English-speaking dinosaur robot) serve to check guests in, and porter robots will carry luggage up to the guest rooms. Human staff is also on hand for guests 24/7 should a problem arise, but robots make up the main staff - and, yes, you can talk to them.
One of the Japanese definitions of “henn” means “to change,” which represents the hotel’s commitment “for evolution in striving for the extraordinary sensation and comfort that lies beyond the ordinary.” Another quirk of this innovative hotel is facial recognition; with keyless locking and entry, guests need not worry about forgetting key cards during their stay. However, if facial recognition technology isn’t your thing, you can request a card key if you wish.
Travelers should note that there is no restaurant or room service/microwaves at the Henn-na Hotel. However, there is a restaurant within walking distance. The concept of the hotel is to provide the minimum necessary to remove “useless amenities.” But don’t fret - there’s free WiFi!
