I was on a business trip with a colleague in Bogor, Indonesia about 2 years back. While we were there, our partners arranged all our hotel bookings, and they booked us at an old looking hotel but very well established. The partners even went as far as booking us our very own rooms rather than share a room. I was slightly happy, as I was not close to my colleague and I felt that I did not want to share a room with somebody I was not comfortable with. After dinner we decided to rest early and went to bed.
At about 2:30am, I woke up because I needed to use the toilet. When I was finished and was back in bed, sitting, I started hearing footsteps by the entrance door. The entrance door to where the bedroom was is quite some distance because the room we were booked into was an en suite. So, from the door it goes straight to the living room, and on the right side is the bedroom, which I happened to have not closed the bedroom door.
At first, the footsteps sounded as though somebody was creeping around because of how slow the sound of the steps were. I just sat there listening. Then the footsteps started getting faster like somebody was walking very quickly. All I could do was just sit there and sit quietly waiting. As the steps got faster, it sounded like somebody was running and just as I sat there a figure of a woman appeared running. However, the woman stopped right in front of my door, turned and looked at me. It was mere seconds that we stared at each other. She then turned back to the living room and started running again forward, and what's in front of her is the length of the living room and then the windows.
I did not hear anything anymore but I did continue to just sit there quietly under my covers. I am not sure how long I sat there but when the door bell rung, I just got up to open the door and saw my colleague standing in front of my door. I invited her in and she just started crying. I asked her if everything was all right, and she said that she experienced something quite scary. I did wonder if it was anything like mine. She related the story of her waking up because she heard a loud 'bang' outside her balcony and when she went to check there was nothing. Before going back to bed she went to use the toilet, and while she was in the toilet she noticed her bathtub curtain was closed. She thought it odd and decided to open it, and when she opened it there sat a woman looking up at her. She said she did not remember how she managed to run out and to my room. That night we slept together with the lights on.
The next day when we managed to tell the story to the hotel staff, they told us that there was a woman who committed suicide on the 5th level, which was my level, but she fell and died on the 3rd level on the balcony. I suppose my experience with the woman was not as terrifying as my colleague's experience, it was easier for me to let it pass by the next day.
That day we packed our bags and changed hotel, and shared a room.
