World's first hotel run by robots to open in July


A hotel with robots as staffers is to open in Japan in July.

According to Japan Times, the hotel in the country’s Nagasaki prefecture, will also have facial recognition instead of the regular room keys

Robots will provide porter service, room cleaning, front desk and other services.

"We will make the most efficient hotel in the world," company president Hideo Sawada said.

"In the future, we'd like to have more than 90 per cent of hotel services operated by robots," he added.

A single room will be normally priced at ¥7,000 ($59) per night, while a twin room will be ¥9,000 ($75).
