Hotels are supposed to be the place where you can rest after a long day of excursion. A soft bed, fluffy pillows and smooth covers are the things your body crave for after a whole day outside. You book a hotel thinking you can get these little luxuries even if you’re away from the comforts of your own home. But what if, you booked a room in a hotel that is far from relaxing?
FLAMINGO HOTEL AND CASINO, LAS VEGAS, USA
You might think a hotel in the never-sleeping Las Vegas Strip is safe from any haunted activity, but think again.

Guests have reported seeing a ghostly figure in the garden near Siegel’s memorial.

TAJ MAHAL PALACE, MUMBAI, INDIA
This beautiful hotel doesn’t have such a beautiful back story.

Until now, guests have met him down one of the many hallways or hear his footsteps in the roof.

Since the hotel is infamous for its paranormal activities, they invested on it and offered ghost tours.
