    (#5) You Might Have To Bid For Rooms

    Prices for hotel rooms can vary, and that's no exception at the robot hotels popping up in Japan. Not only does the price fluctuate based on the time of year, it also changes based on how packed the hotel is. What's more, Henn-na Hotel requires you to bid on available rooms during peak season.

    Generally, it's fairly inexpensive to stay at Henn-na, since  the hotel doesn't have to pay a lot of wages; rooms typically cost around $60 per night. However, if the hotel is especially busy, a bidding war could drive the cost as high as $153.

    The receptionists at Henn-na Hotel are unusual, to say the least. The Japanese-speaking android is a smiling woman, but the English-speaking receptionist is a robotic velociraptor. This realistic looking dinosaur wears a little hat, bows to greet you, and gestures with its claws. It also has voice recognition, so you can ask it questions. Its voice is a little husky, but it can answer.

    (#11) Your Room Knows If You're Hot Or Cold

    At Henn-na Hotel, even your room uses advanced technology. Rather than having the usual air conditioning, each hotel room has large radiation panel that can sense body temperatures inside the room. When your body temperature changes, the temperature of the room will adjust in order to maintain it. Many of these in-room features run on solar power, so the hotel is surprisingly energy-efficient.

    Of course, if you find that you like your room colder or hotter, you can always adjust the temperature, thanks to your little in-room helper.

    (#3) They're Almost Entirely Staffed By Robots

    When Henn-na Hotel was first completed in 2015, the robots were there for novelty rather than true efficiency. But over the next year, things really began to change. More robots were added, existing robots were improved, and the number of on-site human employees was greatly reduced. Soon, more than half the hotel was staffed solely by robots, with humans taking on a more maintenance and support role.

    Hideo Sawada, the president of Huis Ten Bosch, wants robots to run 90% of the property in the future.

    (#7) Some Of The Robots Speak English

    Henn-na Hotel is currently targeted to a mostly Japanese-speaking population, but it's still accessible to English-speaking visitors. When you first walk in, a large plush creature will welcome you first in Japanese, and then in English. When you get to the reception desk, the English-speaking robot is indicated by a sign. Once you're checked in, your room will include a card of basic phrases in Japanese for you to say to your in-room helper.

    In the future, all robots in the hotel may be able to speak with you in your native language. Robots at the reception desk have already learned Japanese, English, Korean, and Chinese.

    (#1) The First Robot Hotel Opened In 2015

    Automation has been involved in the Japanese hospitality industry for years. For instance, restaurants called shokkenki implement machines, through which patrons place their orders and pay for their meals.

    However, the first robot hotel didn't open its automated doors until 2015. It's called Henn-na Hotel, which literally translates to "strange hotel." But the tongue-in-cheek name has a clever double-meaning: it's also close to the term for "evolve."
