Amsterdam’s Crane Hotel Is Putting Five Stars To Shame With Rotating Rooms & Panoramic View

As if we didn’t have enough reasons to visit Amsterdam over and over again, the amazing city has given us another. This time we won’t be able to resist. Seems like travel is on the charts. With mind blowing stay options, how can our wanderlust let us be! Your mind will be blown too. Crane Hotel Faralda is the new mark of luxury.

What is it

It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a crane hotel! You heard it. Suspended 50 meters above ground, the 250-ton crane arches over the up and coming area of Noord. Hotel Faralda is built into an old industrial crane. It was deemed impossible to develop, but ambitious architects refused defeat. Three years later elite guests enjoy apartment style suites in the rotating luxury hotel. The crane turns when the winds run strong so be prepared for creaky movements unannounced. The archaic stairs and lifts were repurposed as a modern and fun design. Living in the property becomes an unforgettable experience because of the sheer absurdity of it. Hyper luxury is not associated with this kind of a structure and that’s why it’s the unique selling point.

What’s more

With a 360-degree view of Amsterdam garnish the luxe features of the 5-star property. The hot tub is placed on top of the crane for magical relaxation where no one can see you, but you can see everyone. The old machine rooms were converted into gold class suites: Spirit, Secret and Mystique. The three suites are designed in the unique artistic nerves. The Free Spirit suite offers what it promises with its airy feel and peacock motifs. The secret suite is purple curtains and blue sheets for night-time feels. Mystique is just as glamorous as the other two with a free-standing bathroom and panoramic views.

If you thought this was it, imagine a day of unravelling in top notch spa services at the top of the world. The crane hotel also hosts a high-end TV broadcast studio for beautiful silver screen frames. Hollywood wasn’t going to miss out right. The suites are Amsterdam ‘s most expensive at ₹45,000 give or take. Developers spent the huge sum of £6,60,000 to bring the dying crane back to life.
