“Most fun after party in Crane Hotel Faralda”  (Mixmag)

The crane is situated on the banks of the river IJ and directly opposite the centre of Amsterdam. 5 years ago it took a lot of courage to restore and develop this former piece of crap. The NDSM ship wharf was abandoned that time.

The development was a multimillion- devouring project. The monumental landmark is famous due to the tremendous and expensive restoration project, the contemporary design and the amazing construction. The crane still turns in the wind. The production cost per suite are by far the most highest in the Netherlands.

“It is certainly set to become one of the most talked about pieces of architecture…”  (Fused Magazine)

Nowadays Crane Hotel Faralda is an iconic and a world famous landmark in the middle of the well-known NDSM quarter, the creative and innovative hub of art, culture and business. Many head quarters of famous companies found their way.

The controversial design of the new parts and the restoration project has been internationally recognized. Since our brief existence we have been honoured with prestigious international awards and prizes, like the HRH Pieter van Vollenhoven price 2016 and the many European Hospitality nominees.

Our guests are creative and passionate free spirits. Many famous or less famous have gone before. The Crane Hotel is now a famous and one of the most published and recognized developments in the world.
