Answer of the DayMORE >>
A: As someone said before, the reason for not allowing foreigners to stay
A:As someone said before, the reason for not allowing foreigners to stay in some hotels in China is because the must be linked electronocally with the local PSB, and be able to scan your passport photo page, visa page and last entry stamp, save it electronically and submit on a daily basis to PSB. Once they can do this, they are authorized to receive foreign guests. As simple as that, unless owner dislikes laowais and does not want their money.
And to Gouxiong and Ambivalentmace: you are both partially right. The truth is that in western democratic countries, hotels are not required by law to report foreign tourists staying with them. But in communist controlled countries, this requirement is a very common rule and all abide by it, makes no difference of the geographical location of the country. -- HappyExPat
