盘点全球12大惊魂酒店(上)

For seekers of creepy kicks, there`s nothing quite like a bona fide gruesome death site. Hotels are primo spots for dubious deeds—including big-time murders, overdoses, and suicides. So here`s our list of 12 inns that hosted famous passings.

对于那些寻求恐怖刺激的人来说,没有什么比真实的命案现场更不寻常的了!而酒店则堪称一些离奇事件的第一高发地——轰动一时的谋杀案、吸毒过量以及自杀案件。下面我们来为你盘点12家发生过著名命案的酒店。

1. Chelsea Hotel, New York City

1.纽约,切尔西酒店

The Chelsea Hotel is best known as the place where Sid Vicious killed his girlfriend, Nancy Spungen. Vicious was the former bass player for English punk band the Sex Pistols. On October 12, 1978, Spungen was found dead on the bathroom floor with a single knife wound in her abdomen, while Vicious walked the halls, muttering. Vicious died of a heroin overdose before he could go to trial, and rumors of a shared suicide pact continue to this day.

这家酒店因英国朋克乐队“性手枪”前贝斯手席德•维瑟斯谋杀女友一案而闻名于世。1978年 10月12日,维瑟斯的女友南茜•斯庞根被发现在浴室地板上死去,腹部插了一把刀,而维瑟斯本人则在酒店大堂里踱来踱去,口中喃喃自语。最后,维瑟斯在出庭前死于海洛因过量,而关于二人相约自杀的传闻一直持续到今日。

2. Lizzie Borden Bed & Breakfast, Fall River, Massachusetts

2.马萨诸塞州,法尔河地区的莉兹•玻顿酒店

After a breakfast of bananas and johnnycakes and a stroll in town, return home to receive 40 whacks with an ax. This was the nature of Andrew Borden`s last day on earth. Borden was murdered on August 4, 1892, along with his second wife. Suspicion has always fallen on their daughter Lizzie, though she was tried and found not guilty.

享用了一顿香蕉和玉米烤饼的早餐后又在城中心逛了一圈,回到酒店后,等待的是什么呢?对于安德鲁•玻顿来说,是被狂砍了40板斧,同时被害的还有他的第二任妻子。夫妻双双被谋杀。这发生在1982年的8月4日。虽然大家怀疑是这是他们的女儿莉兹•玻顿干的,但她却被审判无罪。

3. L`hôtel, Paris

3.巴黎,L'hôtel酒店

These days, the L`Hôtel was a small hotel on Paris`s Left Bank. However, when Oscar Wilde died on November 30, 1900, everything had changed. But Wilde`s last days in room 16 are shrouded in mystery. Did he die of syphilis, or cerebral meningitis resulting from an ear infection? One thing is clear: The hotel`s decor was not up to the aesthete`s standards. His last words are reputed to be, "My wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death. One or other of us has got to go." The hotel has transformed itself, meanwhile, into one of the most praised boutique hotels on the planet.

L'Hôtel酒店原来只是一间位于巴黎左岸的小旅馆。但在1900年11月30日那天,一切都改变了。这一天,奥斯卡•王尔德在这家酒店与世长辞。在这间16号房中,他人生的最后一段日子充满着神秘色彩。究竟是死于梅毒还是中耳炎引起的脑膜感染呢?谁都说不清楚。但是有件事非常清楚,那就是这家酒店当时完全不符合这位唯美主义者的审美标准,因为诗人最后的遗言是这样写的:“我和墙纸在做殊死搏斗,不是它死,便是我亡。”如今,这家酒店已跻身为全球最奢华的酒店之一。

Ramirez, who was found guilty of 14 murders in the 1980s, stayed on the 14th floor for several months in 1985. And Unterweger, a writer and prostitute-killer, also used the hotel as a base to pick up at least three prostitutes who were later found murdered.

On September 10, 1898,Empress Elizabeth of Austria was leaving the Beau Rivage Hotel to catch a boat on Lake Geneva when Italian anarchist Luigi Lucheni repeatedly stabbed her with a file that penetrated her heart and lungs. When aid was administered, the empress did not allow her corset to be undone until she had reached the relative privacy of the boat; when the stays came off, she was revealed to be bleeding to death.
