As jcaron pointed out, details vary from country to country. Some general remarks: In some European countries, residents are required to register with the municipal authorities of their primary place of residence. But that's really a detail for the Expatriates site. It becomes relevant to the Travel site when you consider that hotels would be an obvious ...

I've just been able to find references in Spanish but it seems that you don't have to pay that tax. Here is a website explaining general taxes in Colombia. The tax you're referring to would be the IVA (VAT in english). If you google something like "IVA hoteles Colombia" (VAT hotels Colombia), you can find numerous websites stating that foreigners do not ...

The Hilton website carries mentions of both Business Centres and Business Corners in the description of its hotels. My understanding, from a quick search, is that the difference between these is likely to be the size of the allocate space, and the number of machines available. Just as an example, below is a picture of the Business Centre at the Hilton Malta: ...

The business centre is an area with some desks, computers and a printer. Often there is a copier and fax device as well. You can access the internet, print documents, scan receipts and so on. The facilities vary a little bit from hotel to hotel. Often it is next to the hotel lobby, and not very private. Usually the business centre is not very busy, because ...

I know that some starwood hotels allow you to entirely skip the check-in process and simply walk up to your room and use your mobile to unlock the door; although this isn't anonymous. I also know of some hotels that allow you to check in as an alias; but again, this isn't anonymous this is just an extra layer of privacy to prevent people from asking for you ...

Climate control means you have control over: The temperature via a thermostat, which is then maintained by the air conditioning system. The option to turn off the air conditioning system, and just run the fan/ventilation. AC only means: There is either a split or a wall air conditioner, which you can set to simply cool the room. There are no other ...

Based on the way they organize the filters: Air Conditioning Only Climate Control Only Air Conditioning and Climate Control Climate Control and Ceiling Fan I would say that "climate control" refers to heating. So you have: rooms that have only AC rooms that have only heat rooms that offer heat and AC rooms with heat and ceiling fans for "cooling" ...

In theory, if the information is reliable: air conditioning means the air can be cooled down climate control means you have a user-controllable thermostat which you can use to set the desired temperature (or at the very least, some form of power control). Air conditioning without climate control would mean the temperature or power of the AC is preset, ...

You need to check with the hotel, not immigration. The hotel can report you as absconded and this will cause you all kinds of trouble when you exit the country. To be perfectly safe, I would check-in to the hotel that had the reservation, and then check-out later for my other hotel. There are rumors that hotels do report guests to immigration - but this ...

The short answer is: there isn't any. There is no such thing as anonymous booking nor anonymous check-in. What you have described is simply automatic collection of keys on late arrival or arranged/instructed by the hotel. Just because some European countries have lenient regulations it does not mean that they encourage anonymous stays. There is an implicit ...
