Ettington Park Hotel, United Kingdom
This is a Victorian mansion where numerous ghostly experiences have been alerted. In fact, the horror film The Haunting (1963) was shot here and is considered one of the most terrifying properties in Britain.
The Stanley Hotel, United States
Stephen King was forced to spend a night at the Stanley Hotel due to heavy snowfall. The experience at this hotel inspired him to write The Shining.

Castello della Castelluccia, Rome, Italy
Two ghosts are said to haunt the Castello della Castelluccia. One of them is Emperor Nero, stalking the building in search of a quiet place to rest. The other, an alchemist who lost his life in the central tower of the hotel after being struck by lightning.
Waitomo Caves Hotel, New Zealand
Whether it’s a boy, a man, a Maori princess, or a woman dressed in Victorian style, the rooms at the Waitomo Caves Hotel have had a wide share of ghosts over the years.
