Industrial Crane in Copenhagen Converted to Luxury Hotel Room

Looks like we have a new entry to add to our ever-growing list of the world's strangest hotel rooms

This one can be found in Copenhagen, where an old crane once used by the coal industry has been converted to luxury digs with meeting space, a spa, an outdoor terrace, and a 538-square-foot bedroom for two. 

As you can see above, the exterior of the structure—straightforwardly dubbed The Krane—isn't exactly a tribute to Danish design. But the interior, which includes a living area, bathroom, kitchenette, and dining room, is sleek and modern. Wood, concrete, and leather are prominent materials; everything is black in a nod to the crane's coal days.

The place's top selling point is the view it offers of Denmark's capital city across Nordhavn harbor. Other perks included with your stay: a loaner BMW and a concierge who will meet you at the airport and bring you breakfast each morning.

Nightly rates for the room start at around $2,900. For a cheaper alternative, you could always pay a construction worker a few bucks in exchange for letting you take a catnap in his cherry-picker.
