The Krane hotel in Copenhagen is an example of taking upcycling to the extreme. Upcycling is the practice of taking by-products and waste materials and using them to create something new. The Krane took an actual coal crane and turned it into a hotel, spa, and reception center.
The hotel is a simple one-room for two affair. When you stay at The Krane, you’ll be treated to incredible, 360 views of the sea and Copenhagen. You’ll also enjoy the services of a concierge who will pick you up from the airport and is on call for your different needs. Daily breakfasts are also served as well as a selection of wines and bubbles. A courtesy BMW and bikes are available.
The Krane’s Spa also sports incredible views. There are two spa baths and all the services one might expect from a spa.
If you’re looking for a meeting place, The Krane offers two—The Krane meeting room and the Glassbox Meeting Room. Their impressive views, and unique settings, inspire the imagination, boosting creativity.
The décor of The Krane keeps in line with its heritage as a coal crane. Decorated largely in black, and featuring steel and woodgrain textures, The Krane is also a prime example of Danish design. Perhaps most importantly, though, The Krane maintains the history of the industrial port. It’s refreshing to see something put to use, rather than thrown in the bin.
