  • Sleeps: 2

  • Minimum stay: 1 night

An immersive and multi-sensory experience that’s quite unlike any other, THEKRANE is a former 1940s coal crane, now transformed into a luxury hotel suite for two people looking to get away from it all in design-led Danish style. Your stay also comes complete with concierge service, access to a relaxing spa, and a freshly prepared breakfast delivered every morning.

Set on the edge of the ever-changing, historic harbour of Copenhagen’s Nordhavn, breathtaking views are guaranteed.  When glimpsed from 50ft above the ground, in the minimalist comfort of your coal-black suite, that stunning panoramic vista of sea, sky and bustling harbour becomes even more glorious.

This is inventive design at its striking best, so you can expect an unsurpassed combination of style and space-optimising function from your comfortable suite. You’ll find pristine wooden flooring, custom-designed furniture and cutting-edge accessories that include underfloor heating, a Bang & Olufsen entertainment system, a minibar and a tasteful kitchenette. You’ll also discover that humble black comes in an eternal variety of elegant shades!

Discover plenty of innovative touches, including a drawbridge-like staircase, and a generous seating area created from the former driver’s cab. Here you’ll find soft rugs and a cosy daybed to curl up on and enjoy the views, or perhaps brew some fresh coffee and leaf through the stunning design books provided. 

Freshen up in the shower, and then why not pay a visit to Copenhagen – made all the easier with complimentary use of a pair of bicycles! Sample culinary delights from street food markets, or spend some time browsing the many galleries, shops and cafés to be found nearby.  

For yet more settings worthy of celebration, you’ll also find some of the world’s finest restaurants in the surrounding area, while for those who adore a romantic stroll, summer holidays in Copenhagen include plenty of long, light days to enjoy.

Of course, we wouldn’t blame you if you prefer relaxation to exploration whilst on holiday – so for those who want to indulge, The Amazing Krane Spa is on hand to welcome you. Discovered just underneath your suite, you’ll feel as though you’ve stepped into a whole new world, with its light stone décor and spectacular glass wall that allows you to relax in your spa bath without having to miss out on a single second of those outstanding harbour, sea and sky views.
