Not all hotels in China accept foreigners

  • You shouldn't have problem if you are staying with major hotel chains or youth hostels, but always double check if you are concerned especially with budget hotels
  • All guests checked into a hotel / guest house need to be recorded and reported by staff to local Chinese police stations
  • Not all hotels have the necessary documentations or meet the requirements to host foreigners
  • Most airbnb hosts do not report foreign guests to local police, which is technically illegal but most people get away with it
