DIPLOMAT HOTEL IN BAGUIO
The old and abandoned hotel on top of the mountain of Baguio is considered as the most haunted haunted place, many local residents who visited the area experienced lots of eerie scenes. Even a local friend who went here with his friends years ago who felt a creepy experienced, he vowed that he will never return to this place, He shared that one of his friend got possessed when they visited the old hotel during night time.
Our Baguio blogger friend brought us here, actually it was not part of the tour but I suggested that we visit it. I don’t know the exact location, but it is located in Dominican Road and most taxi and jeepney drivers know this, they can take you here if you dare to go.
STORYDiplomat Hotel was first established as a Dominican retreat house in the year 1913, and then on 1915, they converted the retreat house into a school, and then during world war 2 of 1945, the whole school was turned into a Japanese garrison and prison cell for Filipino and American soldier. After the war, the entire building was converted into a hospital, and then on 1975, the new owners of the building converted it into Diplomat Hotel. The hotel was abandon later on because of ghost disturbance, it was unoccupied for many years and then on 2005, the local government of Baguio opened the place to the public as a tourist spot. They renovated some parts of the hotel, trying to preserve what is left.
This 2012, we got a chance to enter and tour around the haunted Diplomat Hotel, we tried our best to capture some ghost scenes.
But according to my video blog ----- I captured one GHOST who hides in one of the pillars of the building.

Watch a video here about the ghost experience felt by the film directors, staff and actors inside the Diplomat Hotel, they filmed a movie there titled “Diplomat Hotel”. They captured a ghost image peeking at the window from the 2nd floor of the hotel.

If you plan to enter this place, I suggest you pray first before entering,and don’t go inside ALONE.
Also go inside with your tour group.
But if you don’t want to enter the hotel, then check out my photos below to give you a virtual tour of Diplomat Hotel.
