Inside An Abandoned Hotel, Once A Famous Place For Swingers In The ’60s

When a reddit-user identified only as ZeRoCoo1 spent a day exploring an abandoned hotel, empty since the 1960’s, freaky things happened. Eerie Satanic symbols spray-painted on outside of the worn-down building show it has had multiple visitors, and cracks through the floors and walls are the biggest marks mother nature has left on the old hotel.

ZeRoCoo1 took pictures of a crumbling hotel in Rio de Janeiro. The hotel was called The Hotel São Conrado, and was quite known in the 1960s. It was also a famous Swinging Hot Spot during its peak. Indeed, it was a glamorous place during its busy days.

But today, it’s debatable what has been lurking in the empty halls. Bullet-hole ridden walls and burnt-out cars lay on the inside, as do the symbols of the Brazilian Red Command drug and arms trafficking cartel. However, so do the materials used in a witchcraft ceremony of ‘macumba’ often used to inflict pain, physical harm or sometimes, in the most rave of circumstances, death. These symbols of something otherworldly are spread throughout the once beautiful hotel, now marking it with a creepy atmosphere and a sense that something is lurking around the corner.

The hotel’s driveway – Would you go in for a closer look?

I hope the person who drew this satanic symbol isn’t still waiting nearby.

Looks as if Mother Nature had her go at the hotel too – a crack caused by an earthquake.
