Hotel check-in

I already posted this on the Turkey forum ... but if anyone who frequents only the Istanbul forum knows the answer, I'd appreciate it. Does anyone know what personal ID information hotels record? Specifically, do they by routine/law record birthdates as well as all the other bits? Thanks. PS. A strange question, but with just cause!

Hi: no question is too strange. To the best of my knowledge they now xerox the information page of your passport, so they get your name, you country of origin, date of birth, passport nubmer, etc, also a blurry picture of you. What they do with it after that I don't know but will ask Sinan, he is a great information giver on this forum. Happy Travel, LemonLady

just an addition:

if you are more than 1 person sharing the same room, 1 passport information per room is generally ok.
