Want to stay somewhere completely different? Located on the KNSM Island, a former industrial harbour transformed into a creative hub in the Eastern region of Amsterdam, this luxury apartment is actually housed in a historic crane. Yes, you read that right. Offering the very best views over the city, Amsterdam the Crane by YAYS is unlike anywhere you have every stayed before.
Located on the banks of the IJ River, you will be staying in a truly unique apartment, with a luxurious and contemporary interior designed by highly renowned Dutch designer Edward van Vliet. The apartment has wi-fi throughout and you even have access to your very own YAYS bike for the duration of your stay.
The lounge and seating area is as stylish as any ground-based apartment could ever be, and comes complete with mid-century European style touches throughout. With a big, comfortable sofa and matching arm chairs, you can enjoy the amazing views from the comfort of your own designer living room. A flat screen TV is included in the apartment, should you ever tire of the live show happening right outside your windows.
The kitchen is a vision of white gloss cabinets and solid marble work surfaces, that wouldn't look out of place in a designer hotel, and it is equipped with everything you need during your stay including a dishwasher. The dining table is set against a floor to ceiling window that affords uninterrupted views across the harbour and out over the city of Amsterdam beyond.
The bedroom is resplendent in its modernity with soft, luxurious white bedding, and full size bed to relax in after a busy day exploring the city. In case you are wondering, there are blinds at the windows so you can enjoy plenty of privacy up here in your own private industrial tree house. It is not short on space either, as there is wardrobe space and storage, and there's even a wall mounted TV for your comfort and pleasure.
The bathroom is full sized and offers a stunning, contemporary suite as well as a separate single shower cubicle. With a supply of soft white fluffy towels, and unique and unusual bathroom fittings, you will not for one minute image that your are in a converted crane, and not an opulent five star hotel.
The apartment itself is located in a newly developed creative community, centrally positioned for easy exploration of the city. Art galleries, shops and restaurants can be found within just a few moments walk, while Dam Square is only 2 miles from the apartment, and Rembrandtplein is also a mere 2 miles away. The KNSM Island is a great choice for travellers interested in atmosphere, city walks and a creative atmosphere.
The National Maritime Museum is right on your doorstep, as is of the oldest botanical garden in the world, the Hortus Botanicus. For those with a yearning to explore the regions architectural delights, there are many uniquely designed bridges connecting the islands to the mainland, each one as different as the next.
However you choose to spend you time in the city, it will be all the better for knowing that you have bagged the very best view in Amsterdam.
