As far as I know, you can take whoever you want into your room with you, but they have to register at the hotel front desk if you want to do it properly. You can take in "girls" but you can't take in outside hookers at most places, so that's what they are trying to prevent.
Just like what Jun go said, you can bring whoever you want to your hotel room. Do registration at reception and then they can go to your room. The security staff in hotel just want to prevent hookers go to interrupt guests.And if there will happen something bad, they can find the murderer easily. Actually it is good for your safety.
Probably not a good idea if the girl is under age ...
And it seems that hotel room is not so popular as the local cinema:
@dingdang, i dont think the phenomenon you linked happens nowadays, ppl are more civilized than b4, anyway, theater is theater, not a hotel, haha
Hahahaha ... I dont know, I did not write it ... I just read it from China Daily a few days ago, and I can only imagine that it still happens ... but of course, for foreigners, hotel rooms might be better that cinemas :)
In ther western world, we say "get a room" ... in China, I think we should say "get two tickets" ...
but i dont see it for years,,, Chinese begin to use hotel...ha, at least i dont use the tickets,,,
Hahahaha ... I did not say "you" ... and even if you do not see it, it does not mean it does happen ... but of course, this depends on the neighbourhood ...
There was recently a post on Daves ESL cafe about this: a foreign guy and his Chinese girlfriend were travelling China and booked into a hostel in Beijing but were told they had to be married in order to share a room. When they told the hostel they weren't married the hostel insisted that it was the law in Beijng.
Apparently this does happen occassionally when the hotel/hostel are trying to get more money out of the guests or don't particularly like the guests in question(if, for instance, the management has an issue with a Chinese girl dating a foreign guy, which is not totally unheard of), but I'm not sure it's actually a law.
I and my girlfriend have never had problems staying in any hotels anywhere in China. (Except cockroaches and lizards in some places). I'm not Chinese, she is.
DingDang, don't you know that Chinese have 5000 years of cultural history, and after such a long time they are very civilized and would never do such crass things. Hey, speaking of Chinese history... nah I'm just kidding. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go shit on the sidewalk.
just make sure you dont leave any blood stain on the bed sheet.
When I was in high school, I got a handjob during the really long flashback scene in the middle of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
Verily, I still insist that the best formula for a date movie is to sandwich a tale of star-crossed lovers between two meaty slabs of martial arts action. It is kind of like the KFC Double Down of screenwriting.
Furthermore I must submit that anyone who looks back in a movie theater is totally guilty of voyeurism if they stare long enough to identify any two sillouhettes going at it. I consider that a bit creepier than the comparatively subtle exhibitionism of making out in the back of a dark theater.
Peter: the reason I wasn't convinced it is a law is because my girlfriend used to work managing the reception of a Chinese hostel and was generally the one who dealt with the police for stuff like passport copies and regulations, and she's convinced that this isn't a law. She has heard about it happening though, particularly with Leo Hostel and the hostels connected with it, because the management don't like Chinese guests staying in their places.
