It’s a crane, a monumental harbour crane.

How did you get the idea? 

“Always the first question I have to answer…The crane is a huge industrial building. A famous landmark and heritage in the highest category. This colossus inspired me. I’ve been a real estate developer since I was 17, so 40 years of experience now.
First of all you need to be creative and a bit crazy to develop the
3 most expensive suites in top of a monumental harbour crane.

I wanted to make a statement! My dream was to create a tool to contribute to the realization of my mission statement:

“Problems can be solved if people have the courage to communicate”

Faralda is just a tool. I want to make an active contribution to the realization of my Mission statement. To realize this goal, I had to conquer all financial and constructions challenges. I started (from Social security) with only € 1 to spend and many others to solve. These problems were immense, but we fixed it.”

(Owner Faralda Crane Hotel)

Faralda Crane Hotel is the restored monumental harbor crane 13 and nowadays a mind-blowing experience. The famous landmark houses on top three amazing apartments and a studio for Corporate and Music events.

The view over the harbor and Amsterdam is majestic. The industrial giant is based on the river IJ in the middle of the NDSM. This former shipyard has become a lively bustling area with numerous trendy restaurants, cafés and (2020) the largest graffiti museum in the world.

At the top you can find three luxurious design suites and the studio for Private Parties and Corporate & Music events. Faralda Crane Hotel is undoubtedly Amsterdam’s biggest unknown place. We love to keep it that way.

We’re not a mainstream hotel. Free Spirits, CEOs, world-leading DJs, famous models, artists, and many others found this secret spot their home away from home.

Each suite is a huge 5 star luxurious designed cube with 2 floors. A beautifully decorated living and separate bedroom with king-size bed and a bath tube. There is a separate bathroom with a rain shower, a secluded toilet.  On top of the crane, you will find the heated SPA pool. Especially at night time an amazing view at the Harbor with all its flickering lights.
