We stayed at the Alcanea with our 2 year old daughter in November 2016 and wondered how it could possibly live up to the reviews on here. Well, it did so and exceeded our high expectations in every way. Eva and the team were completely wonderful, happily and enthusiastically providing the best service I have ever experienced. Nothing was too...

Quirky hotel with large clean rooms, gorgeous bathrooms, cute terraces, games and views over the port. The raki was lovely and the hotel manager super helpful in booking trips for us and advice on restaurants. Really felt at home and the bar is a great place to have a drink after dinner. Breakfast wasn't amazing but fine. Room1 was out...

The rooms are large and clean. The bathroom amenities are very nice. The honey raki is wonderful. The balcony overlooking the old port was fantastic. Breakfast is delicious. The staff are friendly and treat you like family. The service is great in every way. Everything you need is at your fingertips and the rest of Chania within walking distance.

From the moment I began to make enquiries regarding booking this hotel right up until our departure we was made to feel like valued guests. I was given a choice of rooms complete with descriptions and the offer of a pre- booked taxi. Eleni from the hotel came out to greet us and lead us to the hotel as it...

Located in the old town of Chania, Alcanea boutique hotel is a majestic building dating back to the Venetian period.

As many other reviews have said: the Alcanea is just brilliant. What is so good about it? I don't know where to start! First of all, the building itself has been adapted into a hotel tastefully and retains its history and charm. Secondly, its location is fantastic - right on the harbour (we stayed in two different rooms, both with...

We've stayed twice at the Alcanea in two different rooms both of which we've liked. The location is fantastic and the entire team who work there are friendly and efficient. Special mention this year goes to Eva and Monika for making our stay particularly enjoyable.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights recently and absolutely loved it. The location in Chania Town could not have been better. You are right at the end of the town centre but positioned so that everything is close and the view is spectacular. We rented room VII which has a lovely little terrace with two chairs and...
