What a beautiful and perfectly located boutique hotel. It was in the heart of the old town and so close to the water. The room was clean and simply decorated but with perfect detail. The beds were comfortable and the room was spacious and so inviting. The breakfast was so great and the staff was super helpful and very friendly. We loved it and will definitely stay again if we are so lucky to return to this beautiful city.

Hotel's Favourite
We are here now and wow this place is beautiful. When you are dropped off you will walk about 6 minutes (look at the buildings until you find the number 69 the hotels location) and you will arrive at this beautiful building and be greeted by Xanthos and Maria both extremely friendly and they make you feel right at home. I must confess we don’t normally book hotels as new as this because who knows what you may expect. Well, so far our expectations have been surpassed and we are so glad we chose Azade for our 3 night stay in Chania. We are staying in a one bedroom suite that is huge and has a veranda that overlooks the harbor and a great street for shopping and restaurants. The location is amazing and convenient to all the great things to do in Chania. One thing to note since they are so new they do not have a bar but they do plan to next year. There are plenty of bars and restaurants within walking distance and a market close by for any of your needs. Cheers to Azade!

we have been vacationing in Chania for the last 17 years. We find the hotel ideally placed after a wonderful restoration of the building. We had the suite room 303 with the view of the harbour which we definitely recommend. The reception team (Maria and Ioulia) and the breakfast team (Eva) made our stay very pleasant. Breakfast is reach and you can choose from a very large menu. the hotel opened last July and as such does not have yet a porter service and a private parking - the latter being critical in the summer months.

Azade is perfectly situated in middle of the old town of Chania. It is coastal modern with a hint of heritage. Our room was spacious, tastefully designed and clean. Every finish was well thought out. The staff, especially Maria and Ava were , exceptional. They were very kind and helpful - perfecting our stay! I would definitely stay here again.

This is a golden hidden gem! Our stay here was amazing. The location was close to everything. The hotel manager made our stay worry free when it came to booking all our transportation to the various beautiful beaches in Crete. He also took care of getting us ferry tickets from Crete to Santorini. The breakfast was so exceptional, the rooms were very spacious with beautiful old architecture, there was a calming and peaceful vibe in the middle of a busy area which was perfect! I never leave review but this place is worthy of an exceptional rating! Thank you to Sandro, Ava and Maria!

Azade offered us one of our best experience. As architect I particularly loved the design of the hotel, a mixture between contemporary and historic architecture in harmony with the location in the heart of the old city. The service was super, the breakfast with local products amazing, and we particularly loved the welcome of Xantos who showed us what real Cretan hospitality is and who did everything to make our experience perfect. And, above all, everyone were friendly with us 🏳️‍🌈 and we were feeling like home. We definitely return back!

Visiting Crete was a highlight of our vacation but staying in Azade Chania was the real difference! The hotel is amazing well constructed and with a very relaxing and elegant atmosphere! The building is amazing but the special touch is the personnel of the hotel! Xanthos, the manager is the soul of the hotel and an example of Cretan hospitality! Do not miss the chance to ask him about the history of the building and the island in general! His suggestions for places/beaches to visit and activities to do In the island were really amazing and filled our holidays with memories and photos!! All members of the staff are very friendly and make you feel like home! We are definitely going back!

This hotel was straight out of a Restoration Hardware magazine! It was so clean, so fresh, so spacious, trendy and chic. The staff was lovely and the breakfast was amazing. The location is perfect as you’re right beside all the shops and restaurants. I can’t wait to stay here again next summer!
