We have all seen the movies and heard the tales about haunted hotels where creepy things happen. Usually, the background story involves some tragic death that happened years ago thereby explaining the paranormal activities that keep occurring over the years. 






Now, imagine checking in at one of these hotels and experiencing the chills of the unknown that surround you for real!! If you are one of the paranormal enthusiast and have a brave heart, we have figured some hotels where we dare you check in to check out the supernatural manifestations.


The Savoy, Mussoorie, Uttarakhand


Built in Mussoorie in 1902, it is listed as one of the most haunted hotel in India. The tale of this hotel goes back to 1910 when one of the guests, Lady Garnet Orme was found dead under mysterious circumstances. Apparently, strychnine had been slipped into her medicine bottle but the case was never solved and her doctor was found dead a few months later. 






Its said that the halls and corridors of this hotel are haunted by her ghost. The case also served as an inspiration to writer Agatha Christie for her first ever murder mystery, The Mysterious Affair at Styles. Witnesses have mentioned various mysterious activities and Indian Paranormal society(IPS) has recorded the sound of a woman whispering.

In case you change your mind, you can check out other hotels in Mussoorie.


The Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, Mumbai


The century-old famous Taj Mahal Palace Hotel in Mumbai is known for more than one reason. Even after being one of the most luxurious five star hotels in India, it is known to be one amongst the most Haunted Hotels in the country. 






As rumor has it, after architect Frenchman W. A. Chambers created the blueprints for the place, he went off on a trip to his country in 1903. When he returned, he was shocked to find that the design of the place did not go according to the plan as the hotel frontage had been made in the reverse direction. He was heartbroken and the shock was such that he killed himself in the same building. Many people including the staff there have witnessed the ghost of the head architect haunting the old wing, still mourning over the execution blunder.

In case you change your mind, you can check out other hotels in Mumbai too.

Raj Kiran Hotel, Lonavala, Mumbai


Raj Kiran Hotel in Lonavala may not be a big hotel but is surely in the list of the top haunted hotels in India as confirmed by a number of paranormal experts. A particular room of the hotel in the corner and behind the reception on the ground floor has been stated to be haunted. 


Guests staying in that particular room have reported that bed sheets have being pulled off while they slept. Some of the people staying there have  also woken up in the midst of dark nights with a ray of blue light at their feet. Few people who stayed there have gone through mental therapies. As a result of these reports, the room has stopped being rented out and is now mostly kept vacant.



Hotels in Ramoji Film City, Hyderabad


Ramoji Film City, being the world’s largest film studio complex also serves as a tourism and recreation centre. The Film City is believed to have been built on war grounds of the Nizam Sultans.




The hotels here are believed to be haunted by the ghosts of dead soldiers. Apparently, there have been a number of unexplained events and lot of paranormal activities have been reported during several film shootings.



Brij Raj Bhavan Heritage Hotel, Kota, Rajasthan


Brij Raj Bhavan, the 178-year-old palace of the former royal family of Kota was turned into a heritage hotel in 1980s. This place is said to have a resident ghost, namely that of Major Burton, who, while serving as the British resident, was killed by Indian sepoys during the 1857 Mutiny.






The sepoys killed Major Burton and his two sons in the central hall of the palace. An elderly man with a cane in his hand, the ghost of Major Burton does not harm anybody and only slaps guards if they are dozing away on duty! Wow! That surely is one disciplinary ghost!



So, if you are expecting a good night’s sleep in these hotels, then you might end up being disappointed. But if you are seeking for some paranormal experience, head to these hotels, book a room and see it for yourself!
