Ms Rotterdam in the Norwegian fjords.
Dockside Crane Hotel, Harlingen, Netherlands
This crane, originally used to unload timber from Russia and Scandinavia, has been converted into a sexy one-bedroom lodging complete with a huge flatscreen TV, Eames chairs, a shower that appears to have been designed by Nasa and touch-operated lighting and audiovisuals. But the piece de resistance is that you get to operate the thing. Climb into the cabin, flick the control stick and feel 65,000kg of steel rotating round and round beneath you.
