Halloween has come and gone, but as the days get shorter and the weather gets colder, our interest in scary movies only continues to increase! That said, you may eventually feel like those scary movies aren’t cutting it anymore. You know when the villain is going to pop out unexpectedly; you know when that ancillary character is going to meet his or her demise; you’re expecting the gross out factor.
If we’re describing you, then you need to take your scare-seeking to another level. How about going on the most spooktacular vacation? What’s watching ghosts on your television compared to actually encountering real-life ghosts? Nothing… That’s what!
Below, we’ve collected a list of the 10 most haunted hotels in the world. We’ll tell you a little bit about what makes each one haunted, and give you an up close look at the kinds of accommodations you can expect. For example, there are several haunted castles on this list, as well as a couple of converted prisons (and one built on top of a former prison).
So, come take a look at the world’s most haunted hotels! (But, before you do, maybe it’s time to hit the restroom? We wouldn’t want you to have an accident…)
1. Karostas Cietums (Liepaja, Latvia)
This is one of two converted prisons on the list. This one used to function as a detention center for the human-rights obsessed KGB.
To stay here, you’ll need to sign a waiver. After doing so, you’ll be taken to your cell and locked in overnight. It’s the real deal, folks.
2. Castello Della Castelluccia (Rome, Italy)
If you’ve ever wanted to stay in a 10th century castle with a spooky history, then this is the hotel for you!
While staying in these luxurious confines, you might encounter the ghost of former Roman emperor Nero or hear the sounds of ghost horses galloping.
