For my husband, this was the highlight of our entire trip to Europe! The crane is something that must be experienced to be believed. You'll pony up a lot of Euros for the experience, but it's worth it. Every detail is well-thought-out and engineered, from the incredible elevator tube like something out of Star Trek to the room control panel... More

I had to book nearly 2 years in advance to get the exact date of my husband's 50th birthday. I was worth every penny and the long wait. As others have described, this is a unique and extraodinary hotel, where high tech meets old tech in a perfect marriage. It's not cheap but the price reflects the quality of the... More

It was booked as a surprise for my 40th birthday and wow what a surprise. The crane is fitted out with much care thought and attention to details its a fabulous place to stay.... More

It took a long wait to get our hands on a night in the crane, but boy was it worth it ! Since I suffer from mild claustrophobia, particularly in elevators, I was a little apprehensive when I saw how the crane was accessed. However, in the event it wasn't bad at all, there's a short ride in an elevator... More

This exceeded all expectations - a wonderful idea brought to fruitation in a wonderful way. The lift system is amazing, though possibly worrying for the claustrophobic. The room itself is very well-equipped, with touchscreen climate and lighting control - a choice of five different lighting combinations for the double shower alone! The bed is large and comfortable and the HD... More

Firstly hats off to the person who with his team had the vision and dedication to carry out this project and to such a high standard. My wife and I stayed for two nights end of July 2008 and thought it wonderful. Sitting on the top deck drinking Champagne watching the busy comings and goings of the boats was bliss,... More
