  1. When I first saw pictures of this Hotel I fell in love with its architecture. I absolutely love the connection of fairfaced concrete and wood. Therefore I definately had to visit it although before decay had a chance to begin. Unfortunately vandalism comes faster than decay. Despite the bad light conditions and suddenly appearing "visitors" and a barking dog that required a sudden breakup I am quite happy about my visit. #1 DSC02622-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC02612-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC02613-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC02614-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC02615-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC02617-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC02618-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC02621-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC02620-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC02625-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC02627-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC02632-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC02634-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC02635-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC02636-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #16 DSC02637-Bearbeitet-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr
  2. Being a regular at the Nurburgring and this place being brought to my attention by a non explorer, the perfect opportunity after a day of storms arose! Putting this one off all week with temperatures reaching the 30s, the moment came on a somewhat stormy day to check this place out, taking full advantage of the slightly cooler – yet humid air. My first explore out of the UK too which made for something special, despite being a derp it was still something different and unique for myself in comparison to the UK. There’s not much left of the place and the history is scarce, however it looks as though work began rebuilding the place but the cost of development was a spanner in the works. The basement also contained a septic tank which is no longer allowed in the region, combining that with the nearest sewer being some distance away making development even more expensive.
  3. What's left of the south marston hotel, remains an empty, scorched shell. Not much to see on this one, and I am way to late but hey, it still provides an eerie vibe. And the photos came out pretty good too. Thanks, C

  6. History Once the magnificent property in East Germany housed a spa building. Around 1950, the building was converted into a hotel, which was given the name of a Duchess. In the 90s, it was closed for cost reasons, since it decays visibly. The Explore Access was easy; the front door was locked, but some open windows and a open door at the back. My first visit was in 2011. Now I returned to see how the building has changed over the past seven years. Many ceilings and floors had collapsed meanwhile, and some areas I could't enter therefore. Unfortunately, some things were destroyed by vandalism or were stolen. For example, all banisters and the ornamented window arches. But on the other hand, the natural decay of the past few years has been very interesting. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 Here are also a few comparison pictures and some photos from 2011 of rooms that couldn't be entered anymore today. 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 - Also this rose has been gone due to the collapse of the ceiling.
  7. History The holiday home was built around 1905 and used as a hotel for almost 50 years. In the mid-1950s, it was converted into a recreation home of the NVA (National People's Army of the former German Democratic Republic). The house was closed and abandoned in the 1990s and in 2003 it was bought by a businessman from Heilbronn. However, for this person it apparently only serves as a deduction product for the tax return. Because instead of investing and bringing the building back to life, he ignored it, so it fell into decay. In recent years, the house has been used as a sleeping place by homeless people and has repeatedly been vandalized. On the upper floor, almost all walls are completely sprayed with very bad graffiti now, but I haven't taken any photos of them. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11
  8. This is my first video of this 60s hotel located somewhere in Italy. I hope you liked the video!
  9. Everything left as if the hotel's owners left it with the thought that they will come back in a moment. Or maybe the contrary, with the thought that they can not go back there anymore. We know that they did not come back. We do not know why. At the bottom, aprons, cups, the inscription "Welcome wedding guests". Upstairs furniture, appliances, personal items, books. Everything is abandoned, not packed, segregated, as in the planned move. No. Abandoned and destroyed. Scattered. Maybe by a vandal who accidentally got there and could not respect the place and things that belonged to someone. Or maybe by someone who did it with the deliberation that was looking for something.
  10. The Station Hotel is a grand Victorian building situated in the heart of Ayr town centre. The hotel consists of 71 bedrooms, complete with en-suite bathrooms, plus a host of suits for functions and a cocktail lounge. The hotel, which is attached to Ayr railway station, was originally opened by the Glasgow and South Western Railway in June 1866 and become part of the British Transport Hotels (BTH) at Nationalisation. It was sold by BTH in October 1951 and has changed ownership a number of times, having been owned by Stakis Hotels, Quality, and Swallow Hotels. The Station Hotel is currently the oldest and most famous hotel in Ayr. The hotel has retained almost all of its original features inside and out. The hotel started to turn away customers in 2014 and closed around 2015. After suffering neglect for some time beforehand, the building is now deteriorating; the railway station have had to take action to safeguard their customers from falling debris.

  11. In the middle of the city ... the entire ground floor is flooded ... mold ... demolition .... Sports and medical clinic connected to the hotel. Another building written down for losses. Probably soon will be razed to the ground ... especially that in its vicinity grow new residential buildings. One can only imagine what sport stars were in this object. Have a look at the photos that remained inside ... (TRANSLATOR...sorry)
  12. The George Hotel as stood empty for just a little over 5 years... considering this it's not half bad inside, stairways are still intact, few if any holes through to other floors, little decay in the form of mold or interior fatigue and there's still gas in the pumps in the bar area. It's a fair size and took us over an hour to appreciate some of the victorian features still visible throughout the building. The building was sold a few years back to a local dentist for £900,000 but nothing if anything as started interns of building works to restore the hotel. which is a shame as the Hotel sits in pleasant surroundings within St George square which recently received a £21 million facelift. The Hotel as a basement area which stores the cask ales & equipment needed to run the Hotel bar. Theres rooms a plenty 60 rooms accommodation with bar(s) , ballroom, pool hall and dining room & rooftop area ... we pretty much covered the entire building in a typically dreary Huddersfield afternoon. Hope you enjoy the thread... Exterior Bar Main lobby Stair case shots Corridor shots Bed rooms The caller The ball room and dinning hall The kitchen The roof Other rooms 45 pics later...

  13. Hi m8s! This is the last adventure I lived with my brother, exploring and old hotel and some random abandoned houses. Cheers!
  14. The former hotel has been closed in 2007 and from the outside the building was unmistakably abandoned. But inside, it largely looked as if you only have to perform a few beauty repairs in order to use the hotel again. My visit was already in 2012. I was told that the entrances were sealed later. I don't know what has become with it today. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47
  15. History- The building is from the 'railway era'. The hotel was a hub of the community, it had a fantastic ballroom and restaurant. Many people came by rail to stay at Sutton Bridge. The hotel from around 2000 was used by an employment agency called StaffSmart to house workers they had lured over to the UK from South Africa to work in the local canning factory. People came from SA on the promise of hotel accommodation and didn't know until they got here that it meant inside the shell of the Bridge Hotel on damp mattresses lined up in each room, including the Ballroom. After StaffSmart vacated the hotel, it stood empty with broken windows until it was bought and restored to a high standard with plush furnishings and chandeliers. However, the hotel rooms were pricey and without the rail trade of people heading to the village, people would be passing through and tended to stay in cheaper accommodation in the area. The hotel wasn't open for long before closing down and ownership passed through several hands whilst falling further into disrepair. In 2015, workmen were spotted on the site removing roof tiles and floorboards to salvage as many building materials before it was demolished but its still standing now, so I don't know what stopped the demolition. Since then the building has unfortunately been vandalised and several fires have been set destroying about 70% of it. The Bridge Hotel in the 50's Explore- The hotel is close to me, so even though I knew the damage of the place it was still worth checking out. Access to the building was easy, a window round back was broken and a board to climb up to it was balanced kind of safely. The cellar floor, ground floor and a few rooms on the first floor were safe enough to walk around but past that there is a lot of fire damage. Pictures-

  17. Information about the Paragon is rare. The old 5-Star Grand Hotel closed in 2007 because of decreasing number of tourists visiting the small town somewhere in the nowhere of the Italian mountains. #1 DSC08077 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #2 DSC08078 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #3 DSC08074-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #4 DSC08075-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #5 DSC08079-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #6 DSC08081 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #7 DSC08082-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #8 DSC08084 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #9 DSC08085 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #10 DSC08086 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #11 DSC08087 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #12 DSC08088 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #13 DSC08089-Bearbeitet-2 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #14 DSC08092 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #15 DSC08095 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #16 DSC08097 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #17 DSC08099 by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #18 DSC08101-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #19 DSC08103-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr #20 DSC08106-Bearbeitet by Ghost-Scooter, auf Flickr

  19. Hello everyone! Some months ago I went on a trip to Serbia, and thanks to a member of this forum who gave me advice on some locations I was able to do some good urbex in the meantime! Here is my report! (I tried my best searching for info on this place on Serbian websites with the help of Google translate, I hope this is accurate! ) This place is an abandoned luxury hotel in the Sumadija district, Serbia. The palace is very old: it was built between 1868 and 1872 by the prince Mihail Obrenovic, basing on architect Koste Shreplovic’s design. Originally built to be the Serbian National Assembly palace, it became the residence for the Obrenovic dynasty when the Serbian capital was moved from Kragujevac to Beograd. In 1903 a coup took place in Beograd: members of the Obrenovic family were either exiled or killed. But in the following years a railroad was built from the city to Beograd, so the palace became an hotel where all of those who travelled daily from the capital would stay. In 1964 the hotel was sold to a Serbian company, which bankrupted in the early 2000s. In October of 2005 it became property of the government, which tried to sell it but without success. Nowadays it still lays abandoned. The most amazing thing of this palace is the dancing hall: it's just too beautiful! One thing I have to point out is that, even if it has been abandoned since 2005, the building has very little traces of vandalism and it still is in a very good shape. This is exactly the opposite of what happens in Italy. Hope you liked my report guys! I'll see you in the next exploration!
  20. For my debut at this forum I introduce you to this hotel that was closed in 2009. Although it is situated perfectly in a nice touristic town there is no conclusive concept for the building. Currently the owner is in discussion with an investor who has a, let's say, quite "progressive" idea concerning the old fashioned town. I wouldn't give € for the investor's idea in this surrounding area. I visited the hotel twice (2016 and 2017). Decay starts.

  21. I recently found this huge abandoned hotel in a sorry overgrown state. So I thought I would wizz the flying camera around it. I didn't go inside unfortunately as the perimeter fence looked rather harsh, with lots of no entry signs. plus it was way to hot. The Penang Mutiara Beach Resort in Jalan Teluk Bahang has been left totally abandoned since it shut its doors in 2006. Thanks
  22. It's always a great experience for an explorer like us, to visit places that we previously knew. This hotel is not really far away from where i live. When i was young, we usually went here on the lasts sundays of autumn for a walk... Surroundings are really beautiful and this small town is really charming. In the middle of it, this massive and luxiourious hotel / restaurant. Time flies, and this place getting really outdated... This place is now closed for 3 years, but we saw inside that he will be open again in few months. Enjoy !

  25. History: The Grand Hotel is a Grade II* listed Victorian hotel in the city centre of Birmingham, England. The hotel occupies the greater part of a block bounded by Colmore Row, Church Street, Barwick Street and Livery Street and overlooks St Philip’s Cathedral and churchyard. Designed by architect Thomson Plevins, construction began in 1875 and the hotel opened in 1879. Extensions and extensive interior renovations were undertaken by prominent Birmingham architecture firm Martin & Chamberlain from 1890 to 1895. Interior renovations included the building of the Grosvenor Room which boasts rich and impressive Louis XIV style decoration. The hotel closed in 2002 and due to the risk of crumbling stonework it has been under scaffolding and protective covers since. In 2012 planning permission was granted for plans to restore the building into a luxury 152-bedroom hotel. Works to the exterior began in October 2012. Before the 1870s, St Philip’s churchyard was surrounded with Georgian terraces. However, as a result of the Second Birmingham Improvement Act of 1861, the buildings were to be cleared for the redevelopment of Colmore Row. As the leases on the buildings on Colmore Row began to end in the late 1860s, demolition began. Barwick Street was constructed in 1870 and several plots of land bounded by Colmore Row, Church Street, Barwick Street and Livery Street were acquired to create the site of the hotel. Isaac Horton, a major Birmingham land and property owner and his architect and builder, Thomson Plevins, were very active in the acquisition of the land and developing it in line with the 1861 Act. Plevins issued three separate contracts for the Colmore Row range of the hotel and construction work started in 1875 on the corner of Church Street. The hotel opened on 1 February 1879, with 100 rooms and a further 60 unfinished at the time of opening. Other facilities included a restaurant with an entrance fronting Church Street, two coffee rooms and stock rooms. The stock rooms were an exhibition space where businessmen could demonstrate their new products and were built as the hotel aimed to attract most of its clients from commercial visitors from out of town. The hotel was let to Arthur Field, a hotel operator from Newcastle upon Tyne. In 1880 the hotel was extended, when the corner of Church Street and Barwick Street was built. The Explore: So we took a spontaneous trip up to Birmingham to check out a few rooftops and we then remembered that the grand hotel was in fact, 2 roads away from where we were planning on going. So we decided to pull an all nighter and find this room; anyway we got in at around 4am and spent a good hour looking for the ballroom (actually it was a nightmare to find); anyway, once we had found it a few of us fell asleep leaving just 2 of us to enjoy its architecture! I find it shocking that this kind of building hasn’t been restored, my photos do it no justice. Anyway we spent about 3 hours taking our photos before stumbling to McDonalds for a well earned bagel and coffee. 100% would revisit. Being tired and hungry we didn't bother checking out the whole site and instead just went straight to the ballroom! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. Thanks for looking!
