Most insane Amsterdam hotel
• The most crazy hotel Amsterdam
The capital of the Netherlands - hot spot. From around the world here eager fans thrill to in translucent smoke atmosphere of complete freedom to give free rein to all their passions at the same time. Perhaps it is for these people and to create this unusual hotel.
When a shipyard in Amsterdam buzzed loaders, cranes grumbled, creaking from the load cables. Here built huge ships. Then the shipyard was not needed (it closed in 1979), and soon wound up in the territory of other artists and hippies, and all the cranes were dismantled. That is, almost all.
Today, the former shipyard became an official and a favorite place for party animals - in art-house atmosphere of former warehouses and piles of container hipsters live, and just ordinary tourists.
This place is one of the most popular sites rave in Europe. And a paradise for various photo shoots.
The dominant feature of the area - in the truest sense of the word - is the last survivor of the giant harbor crane, built by Hensen in 1951. When it was just a "tap number 13", which had been abandoned for many years.
History does exactly what led me Edwin Kornmana Rudy thought to buy back the tap, and make it a hotel, but it was done, and how!
The crane was completely dismantled and restored. After which lasted three and a half years of reconstruction (from 2011 to 2015), its total weight increased from 198 tons to 295 tons - almost 100 tons! The design has been strengthened, there appeared to elevators and new premises. And it is - only three rooms located at an altitude of 35 to 50 meters above ground level.
The central area can be reached both on the elevator and spiral staircase.
From landings views of the territory of the former shipyard and the city.
On the platform is equipped with a multi-functional room, which has a threefold purpose - office is located here, here it is possible to organize parties for 70 people, and then placed a professional studio with the Internet channel to 1Gbps.
The room can only be reached by elevator. Finish each of the rooms cost a total of over one million euros. And this despite the fact that most of the equipment and materials were provided by barter for advertising. In any case, in itself amount to a little over three million euros for the three numbers inspire shock and awe. But a much greater shock you experience when you see the rooms themselves, over which worked best designers of Holland.
The lower number of Free Spirit 36 square meters is in the industrial style, with light notes of total madness.
numbers is a bathroom with a view on the second floor.
Average Secret Room has a similar area, but features even more mind-bending.
"top" Mystic number - a combination of design and luxury, as the room opens the craziest view of the city from a height of nearly 50 meters.
Although the weather, the coolest kind of offer is not in this room, and from the giant outdoor jacuzzi, located at the top of the crane!
It should be added that the crane is slightly rotated by the force of the wind, so the view from the window all the time. The range of services of the hotel include shuttle service to Amsterdam on a private jet, with the subsequent delivery to the hotel in a limousine. If desired, you can order a personal bodyguard.
The pleasure of living in a hotel is expensive - from 450 to 1 600 euros per night. But I must say that the rooms available it is not seen. Still, after all the hotel concept "get high" is perceived not only figuratively but also literally.
And for those that were not enough, the hotel hosts offer for just 85 euros jump with arrows on a rope - a 90 meter span!
Indeed, a crazy place!
