Amsterdam The Crane by YAYS
The Crane by YAYS is bucket list material for couples and solo travellers in search of urban adventures, or anyone looking for design experiences and inspiring views. Originally constructed in 1957 as a harbour crane, this colourful piece of engineering has seen the KNSM Island evolve from an industrial area to a creative hub. The crane underwent a similar transformation when it was completely dismantled, only to be put back together as a luxury apartment, complemented by a luxurious bathtub, superb views, and interior design from the renowned Dutch designer Edward van Vliet. A stay in the Crane apartment by YAYS will be the experience of a lifetime for fans of history, design and architecture, and anyone looking for fun and indulgence. Make this your place in the city, and you’ll be staying inside a piece of Amsterdam history.

Amsterdam The Crane by YAYS, Living Room

this is “glamping” at its best.

This is “glamping” at its best. Java Island is quiet but well connected, you can cycle within 15min or walk within 50min to Amsterdam center. There are two bedrooms- the top one is accessed via the outside and has a great view (and its own WC so you don’t need to brave the stairs at night). Well kitted out and easy to heat.

living in a luxury crane is definitely a one-time experience!

I don’t usually rate hotels, but living in a luxury crane is definitely a one-time experience. The facilities are great, the location is wonderful and the scenery is fantastic… You won’t regret owning the entire 3-floor crane all by yourself for a little holiday. You could eat and sleep while enjoying a terrific sea-view (up in the air) of East Amsterdam.

one of the best experiences of life!

Had one of the best experiences of life. The idea of converting a crane into an apartment was so smart.
