    Without a passport, one can't ...??... in a hotel

    Как сказать "Без паспорта невозможно устроиться в гостинице / снять номер в гостинице".
    Наверное, будете смеяться, но в Лингво не нашла.

    Without a passport, one can't ...??... in a hotel.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

    I don't know if in Russian you can use them to mean both "make a reservation" and "check in(to)". If you can, then it depends on what you want to say.

    Reservation делать не всегда обязательно (если это значит бронь). Её надо делать только если в гостинице мало мест, и/или они все время заняты.

    Что-то не хочется новый топик создавать, спрошу-ка здесь, потому что в теме есть слово passport

    Is this sentence ok/fine/natural?
    My money, my passport - all is stolen!

    Maybe "they stole it all"? ("they" is impersonal)

    In Russian it's:
    У меня деньги, паспорт - всё украли!

    My money, my passport - everything has been stolen/they stole everything. I think it would be more natural to say, "Someone stole my passport and money."

    Or just watch this to learn what to do in such a situation...
