What we like about this property

Gutsy, improbable and entirely unconventional, this is an innovative and wholly unique concept that somehow works on both a functional level and as a far out and visionary design idea. We love the chic and imaginative interiors and the bold individuality of each suite. Reborn and repurposed, it’s a technological marvel hovering and orbiting the skies over Amsterdam.


Located in one of Amsterdam’s most fascinating and creative neighborhoods, this once abandoned and dilapidated old harbour crane has been transformed into one of the most talked about design hotels in the world. A renowned industrial landmark, the three hundred ton, fifty meter high installation is a tour de force of design, constructed in 1951 by The Hensen Factory. Undergoing one of the most significant structural developments of its time, the hotel has received extensive international media coverage heralding its uniqueness and visionary concept. Without altering the functional layout, a large team of architects, structural engineers and designers were led by the owner and main developer to restore and reimagine the crane as a unique design hotel.

Stacked on top of one another, it now houses three independent and uniquely designed high end suites hovering at fifteen stories above the earth. Each is self contained and individually designed with phenomenal, ever changing, 360° views over Amsterdam, the river IJ and the distant North Sea. Rotating slowly and almost imperceptibly, the crane turns in the wind altering the view throughout the day.

Each of the three split level suites, is designed  and inspired by distinctive  themes with opulent materials and unique design pieces including gold ceilings, onyx walls, Edward van Vliet wall papers, Chivasso woven linings and bespoke furnishings and decor. From soft to saturated colors, vibrant to abstract, each room offers an exhilirating and individual experience.  

There is an elevated picnic area and cabin accessed via a ladder from the main bedroom and at the top you’ll find the now world famous Villeroy & Boch open air spa pool, with breathtaking views.

There’s also a fully equipped TV broadcasting studio designed for live stream television or music recording as well as a unique space for private parties, events and presentations. For the adventurous at heart, there is bungee jumping available where you’ll enjoy a thirty five meter free fall.

Thrilling, unique and inspired in its non-conformity, this is a once in a lifetime experience. 


Hostess and concierge services available. Wifi throughout, Domotica climate & music control, plasma TV home entertainment systems, stereo audio system with iPod docking station. Complimentary minibar with snacks. Optional champagne breakfast (€ 30 per person) and spa pool access (guests only, € 45 per person).

Located in the middle at the world famous NDSM shipyard in one of the most creative artistic neighbourhoods in the Netherlands, the hotel is within walking distance of  many great restaurants and shops. In summer the wharf hosts several music festivals and is a hub of activity. The city’s core is compact and atmospheric, lined with the famous canals and historic quarters including the medieval old town center. The posh 17th century Canal Ring neighborhood is a UNESCO site and home to the upscale residential neighborhoods and as well as the best nightlife. The museum quarter is one of the most famous in the world where the materpieces of native sons Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Vermeer, Mondrian and more are on display.
