General information:
Crane Hotel Faralda isn't for just anyone. This five-star exclusive location in Amsterdam's famous NDSM quarter welcomes CEO's, DJ's, VIP's and Royals for a night in its designer suites or an event with a view of the city, comfortably hidden away from the eyes of those on the ground.
“An unusual hotel you won’t believe actually exist“  (CNN 2015)
After four years of construction works that started in 2011, owner Edwin Kornmann Rudi turned an old industrial crane into the most unique and spoken about hotel project in the Netherlands.

Luxury and location
That's not surprising when you realize Crane Hotel Faralda boasts three exquisite suites of no less than 36 to 40 square meters, equipped with rain showers and located at a height of 30 to 50 meters inside the crane. The wind vane allows the crane to very gently turn in the wind, offering guests a different view at any given moment.

Each suite is different and styled by a team of internationally renowned designers. With all interior elements coming from our more than 30 stakeholders. Add to that that each suite consists of two levels and the contrast between this luxurious hideaway and the surrounding old NDSM shipyard becomes clear.

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

A raw, industrial but the most exclusive suites a hotel can offer.
The old NDSM shipyard is nowadays a creative hub where free-spirited people attend music events and art gatherings, where innovative entrepreneurs meet to discuss business and where some of the biggest brands in the Netherlands have their headquarters.

The Crane Hotel has become an iconic landmark in the center of this industrial yet mystic setting. Everybody knows it and can spot it from afar, but nobody ever knows what happens inside, and that's exactly Faralda's strength.

The private & secret hang out
Aside from three fabulous suites, the Crane has a panoramic lounge and a spa pool located on the top deck, no less than 50 meters high. It offers its guests a truly unique view over the river IJ, the water and the rest of Amsterdam.

With only one entrance and no way to get in without a special key card and permission, Crane Hotel Faralda offers optimal security and privacy, something that is highly sought after by international DJ's, VIP's and Royals. Our guests arrive in Amsterdam by (private) jet and are brought right to the entrance of the hotel by limousine, without ever being seen. The lifts take them straight to their suites from where they can look out over Amsterdam and see all that's happening below, without anybody seeing them. Even a private bodyguard and hostess are available upon demand.

Corporate and Music Events
That same privacy and security makes Faralda a favorite place for movie stars and some of the world's most famous DJ's. While the panoramic lounge is great for the best music events, it's also the perfect setting for corporate events such as product launches and brand announcements, as well as press conferences. In such a short amount of time, Faralda has become an internationally known hotspot for leading
Corporate and Music events.

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

Fitting only up to 71 people at once, every event at Crane Hotel Faralda is exclusive, but the hotel does offer DJ's and other guests the option to live stream their events, giving fans worldwide the chance to feel part of something special.

Cranesessions is a cooperation with partners from the music industry. With livestream sessions and the best DJ’s and labels they reach a multimillion target audience.

’It's hard to really put into words how good this party was but we found club land’s version of heaven and we'll never forget it.’’ (Mixmag)
World leading brands such as Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy met Belvedere. James Bond event, Red Bull, DGTL have chosen the Crane as an event location to share their message with the world, but the Crane Hotel is equally welcoming to companies who want to enjoy the privacy to focus on teambuilding and brainstorming sessions.

“ Okay, there’s one hotel like that.  And here it is: Faralda NDSM Crane Hotel. The Weirdest Hotel in Amsterdam”  (Urbandaddy)

After being open for only a few months, Crane Hotel Faralda was nominated for no less than three European Hospitality Awards in 2015 - Innovation in Service of the Year, Best use of Technology and Hotelier of the Year. A few months later, it won the Dutch Pieter van Vollenhoven Price for the repurposing of the last standing monumental crane at the NDSM wharf.

Needless to say, this place isn't just for anyone. Crane Hotel Faralda caters to creative minds, whether they're entrepreneurs, artists, CEO's or Royals. It does so at the highest level of the marketplace, yet an experience at Faralda can't simply be bought. This place is in high-demand and only free spirits open to the excitement and mystique awaiting them at The Crane will be able to call themselves a guest.

‘’In the past year alone we've partied on a bus, inside a glacier, at a spooky cabin in the woods, even at an oasis in Morocco, but a party inside a crane still had us very excited.’ (Ministry of Sound)
