Every suite has its own identity and all three have a marvellous view.
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.
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 headquarters of famous companies found their way.
