Hotel inside a crane

A new hotel in the Netherlands is already set to be a hit with adrenaline junkies - because it's built inside a dockside crane.

Situated on the riverbank of Harlingen, opposite the city of Amsterdam, The Crane Hotel Faralda is not for the faint-hearted (or those who are scared of heights) as it moves with the wind - so guests can wake up to completely different views each morning.

The crane's exterior itself is eyecatching, painted in a series of bright red, yellow and blue hues.

Despite its unusual location, the hotel boasts three luxurious suites - named Free Spirit, Secret and Mystique - each of which sit at a different level between 35-50 metres high.

The rooms are the epitome of opulence with eye-catching interiors, cosy double beds, not to mention the wetrooms boast rainforest showers and porthole windows so you can make the most of the unrivalled views of Amsterdam.

The more daring of guests can head to the top deck, where a hot tub awaits - perfect for unwinding while taking in the breathtaking surroundings.

This is the second of the Faralda Crane Hotels to open in Holland - the first was built in Amsterdam and even offers guests the opportunity to bungee jump off the top of the 'building'.

It's been a five-year project, one that hasn't come without its fair share of controversy. The multi-million pound restoration took place on the NDSM ship wharf, one of the area's landmarks, and the production of cost per suite was the highest ever in the Netherlands.

Suites start from £371, but you'll need to pay more if you want breakfast and access to the hot tub. Tempted to book a room? . Click here for more information.
