A new hotel opening in Japan has robot clerks at the front desk. Called the Henn-na Hotel, the novel business is located just outside of Nagasaki’s Huis Ten Bosch, an eco-friendly theme park modeled after the Netherlands. The hotel’s robots, which include a Nao, a humanoid, and a dinosaur in a bow tie and cap, can check you in and send  your luggage gets to your room. The Website advises that the hotel is not responsible for lost luggage, however. So you might just want to carry it yourself.

“Incorporating advanced technology, Henn-na Hotel is the first hotel of its kind in the world,” reads the hotel’s Website. “Our smart, modern facilities are not only environmentally friendly, but also add to the fun and comfort of your stay.”

Also note that there are humans on site night and day, in case you find your dinosaur concierge off-putting.
