The Hottest Boutique Hotel In Copenhagen RN Is On Top Of This Crane

Hotels in the middle of nowhere speak to me on a spiritual level: you check in, drop your bags and unwind without any human interaction, unless you request an ice bucket for your rosé.

That’s why I’m keen to hightail it to the waterfront city of Nordhavn, in Denmark‘s capital of Copenhagen, where a plain old industrial crane has been transformed into an incredibly cool boutique hotel that offers one of the most unique travel experiences you’ll probably ever have.

Renovated by Danish architectural outfit Arcgency over a two year period, The Krane features a reception area on the ground floor, a first-floor ‘Glass Box’ meeting room, where floor-to-ceiling windows provide 360-degree views of the city, a second-floor spa where you and your travel buddy can stare out at the harbour from side-by-side tubs, and a two-person luxury retreat – with hidden panels that pop down to reveal a king-sized bed – on the top floor, complete with lounge and terrace.

In keeping with its former life as a coal crane, the palette is all-black-everything: black walls, black floors, black furniture, black industrial lights, benches covered in black leather. It’s all very Wednesday Adams.

Prepare to swoon over the pics.

Throw in the complementary use of a brand-new BMW i3 electric car and a couple of bikes you can use to go exploring when you’re finally ready / willing to talk to someone, and it sounds like the ultimate respite.

You can lay your head in The Krane for about AU$3,300 per night, which is fkn exxy, but think of the Insta pics.
