If you think Amsterdam is cool, try little cousin Haarlem for photo-worthy cafes, design hotels and culture galore. Visit Grote Markt square for artisanal treats and treasures, centuries-old museums for classic Dutch art and nearby Bloemendaal for beachside fun. Here’s our round up of boutique bolt holes and central stays at the coolest city in the Netherlands.

Staats is just too cool for school. Literally – the old school building is now a trendy boutique hotel with interiors to make design lovers swoon. Like a chocolate box of delicately wrapped delights, each room is wildly different: some are dusted in millennial-pink, others have a dark industrial style with gilded accents. Never heard of a carbon hammock bath? You clearly haven’t stayed in the jewel-hued Presidential Suite, where a boudoir-style bedroom steps down into a black marble-walled bathroom.

From this central hotel in Haarlem, a short stroll along the river takes you to the oldest museum in the Netherlands, Teylers Museum, which displays exciting art, science and natural history collections. Or rent a bike and make the leisurely half-hour pedal to the dunes of Bloemendaal aan Zee – look out for wild Konik horses and Scottish Highland cattle on your way. End the day with a soothing soak in your bath – every room has one.

    Hanging milk bottle lights, cowhide armchairs and creamy white interiors all hint at the past life of this central Haarlem hotel as a dairy factory. Splashed across the walls are music posters, vinyl records and album artwork to get you in the mood for dancing at the Patronaat, the alternative music venue just next door.

    Inspired by the surrounding sand dunes of Bloemendaal, the 11 rooms at Hotel Bleecker invite you to slow down and get grounded, with soft earthy tones, natural textures and large windows to wake up with the sun. Begin your day with an invigorating ginger shot and organic superfood-sprinkled yoghurt in the sun-filled Brasserie Bleecker. After a day at the beach, call dibs on the squashy sofa for a fireside hot Nutella waffle. Solar panels, recycled rainwater and locally sourced ingredients are just some of their green initiatives.

    Stay active during your Haarlem stay at the ibis Styles hotel, where rooms are bright, cheerful and sports-themed. Watch the speed skaters race around the neighbouring ice rink every morning or head across the road to the gym and squash club. A hot breakfast buffet is served at the hotel at an extra cost, but why not bike to the beach and have a toes-in-the-sand brunch – the cafes of Bloemendaal are a 20-minute bike ride away.
