Introduction: The Japanese chain hotel "Weird" is known as robotic employees who undertake a lot of work such as reception, baggage handling and room service. However, more than half have been fired because of frequent failures and a lot of work for human colleagues.

According to Xinhua News Agency, Japanese hotel chains are “weird” known as robotic employees, who are responsible for reception, baggage handling and room service. However, more than half have been fired because of frequent failures and a lot of work for human colleagues.

The first store of the "weird" hotel opened in 2015 at the Nagasaki Huis Ten Bosch theme park. After that, there were 8 stores in Japan, and at most 243 robots acted as hotel staff. The original intention of opening a robotic hotel was to improve efficiency and reduce manpower, but the frequent failure of robotic employees increased the workload of hotel human employees. The robot hotel costs US$80 per night (about 541 yuan).

The Wall Street Journal reported on the 15th that after receiving a large number of complaints from human employees and customers, the hotel has fired more than half of the robots. At the beginning of the opening, the hotel had only about 80 robots, which gradually increased. There were both front-end receptions for dinosaurs wearing caps and bow ties, as well as puppy robots and humanoid robots dancing in the lobby. However, guests staying at the hotel reported that these robots often had problems. The snoring of a guest provoked the robot's reaction in the room and was frequently woken up by it.
