Crane Hotel Faralda is probably the most spectacularly original hotel you’ll ever stay in, so if you’re looking for an inspiring break that will have everybody talking for a long time to come…you’ve just found it!
Set in a former harbour crane painstakingly renovated and refurbished from scrap, Crane Hotel Faralda is now a luxurious setting worthy of the prestigious Pieter van Vollenhoven Award for Restoration in 2016. The stylish hotel is positioned 165 feet above ground, on the scenic banks of the River IJ and overlooking the bustling centre of Amsterdam.
It’s been known for several high-profile guests to pay this innovative hotel a visit from time to time, and who could blame them? Here you can discover a whole new world of unusual opulence, beginning with a Panoramic Lounge and a heated Spa Pool on the top deck…ideal for surveying an illuminated Amsterdam by star-lit night!
Meanwhile, choose from three stunning, air-conditioned suites to rest your head, all complete with individual styling, creative décor and of course, outstanding views.
The split-level Free Spirit Suite overlooks the lake, and features soft-toned colours, pearlised walls, fine fabrics and plenty of stylish flourishes, including an indulgent Villeroy & Boch bath and a refreshing rain shower. Relaxation is mandatory here.
The Secret Suite is created from the crane’s former machinery room, overlooking both the lake and the centre of Amsterdam. This inventive suite is filled with romantic surprises, including a separate ‘love nest’ and a plushly furnished hangout in what was once the driver’s cab!
Finally, the split-level Mystique Suite is opulently decorated in gold and black – including a stunning golden ceiling – with furnishings creatively styled from a former cruise liner.Keep reading
