    Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba has opened its first futuristic Flyzoo Hotel in the eastern city of Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province.

    Equipped with the latest technology and cutting edge features, each guest is able check into the hotel without talking to another human being. They can walk straight to their room and gain entry using a facial recognition scan system, according to local media reports on Tuesday.

    Robots can be found everywhere in the hotel and are able to guide guests via recorded voice messages during their stay. Residents can also control the room's temperature, light intensity and household appliances through voice-activated technology.

    A very notable device that the hotel is equipped with is the 'Tmall Genie', which is an AI management system. The interactive assistant can carry out a number of voice-activated tasks, from ordering groceries and room service to changing the television channel and closing the curtains.

    Wang Qun, Flyzoo Hotel's CEO, said: "The new AI system will help to improve the management efficiency of the hotel, by reducing more than half of the labour forces."

    It is said that the furniture and many other items in the hotel can be purchased merely by taking photos through a designated app.

    Flyzoo Hotel also has seven theme-rooms, each of which is able to create a better living experience for its guests.
