EuroCheapo’s Spookiest Hotel Ghosts (seven photos!)

Posted in: CheapoNews


We take lots of photos while visiting hotels in Europe.  While most of them look fine and accurately capture each hotel, every now and then we notice something unexpected in the corner of the frame.  Something lurking in the shadows.  Something creepy.

That’s right Cheapos:  sometimes we take pictures of budget hotel ghosts!

Think we’re kidding?  Just have a look at the photos below and see if you notice anything peculiar… mwaaahaaahaaa!

#1.  Creepy toilet

This bathroom shot was taken on a sunny day, in a room filled with natural light. So why does this toilet give us the creeps? Because it’s haunted!

#2. Floating leg in shower!

Looks like a typical bathroom scene in a trendy London hotel, right? Everything looks up to snuff, until you notice the floating GHOST LEG in the shower!

3. Haunted London bedroom!

This was nearly a “hotel crush,” until we developed this shot and noticed the menacing ghost orb floating above the bed—and the greenish pillow stains of guests long gone… (Editor’s note:  This hotel did not make our final cut…)

4. Phantom in Brussels!

This photo was taken by Meredith while making her rounds in Brussels last spring. So who’s that man in the corner? A G-H-O-S-T!

5. Ghost orb in Dublin bathtub!

Another orb appears… this time in a Dublin bathtub. We shouldn’t have been surprised. ORBS TAKE BATHS!

6. Pioneer man in Paris pension!

We swear, we were alone in the room when snapping this shot in the Latin Quarter. Who gave him a key? GHOSTS DON’T NEED KEYS!

7. Maverick looking out the window!

Imagine our shock when we studied this shot of an un-named London youth hostel (located “steps from the British Museum”). How did she get there? No wait, she’s just a figment of our imagination, VANISHING BEFORE OUR EYES!

  1. Hi Tiffany,

    Thanks for your comment. You’re correct–the photos are not intended to seriously document the supernatural, and in that respect could be considered “fakes.”

    As a matter of full disclosure:

    #1: Just another blurry toilet shot.
    #2: That’s Alex Robertson Textor’s leg reflected on a shower door.
    #3: That’s me (in the mirror) and a flash in a hotel in London. (The hotel was really gross and we didn’t even write about it. Trust me, that would have truly been scary!)
    #4: That’s Pete in the corner, taking the photo. It’s not Meredith, as stated in the caption (that was an intentional distraction!).
    #5: Flash in the bath.
    #6: Just me doing a little Photoshop fun.
    #7: Sarah Palin Photoshopped into a London B&B window. A fake? You betcha!

    Finally, we didn’t intend for this post to be a serious reflection on the afterlife. Rather, it was a Hallowe’en/Election-eve parody post.

    Best regards,
    Tom Meyers

    This is the most hauntingly delicious post ever!! I think I have a few similar photos myself, if you include my accidentally cutting someone’s head or feet off in the shot.
