Alcanea is a true Greek gem. Wonderful staff warmly welcome you in beautifully restored 400 year old building. Great location and views, yummy breakfast, lovely rooms and communal areas. Fast wifi, plenty of sockets, comfortable beds. Waking up here on a sunny day will lift your spirits.

Evi at the reception was very accomodating and polite with good tips for town restaurants. Nice breakfast with a variety of Cretan specialties. all in all a lovely experience even at a rainy weekend in November! one... More

Wow! This is a great hotel! The location is the best you could possible have in the Old Port of Chania, the rooms and design of the hotel travels you in another era (450 yrs old building), and the staff is extremely helpful, polite & professional! I must not forget the breakfast...yummy!!! it is a definitely come back hotel!

This is the first time that I have given a hotel five stars, and we have stayed in some lovely properties. What makes the Alcanea different? In a word - service. Firstly the location is perfect - on the edge of the beautiful Chania harbour, walking distance to everything but just far enough away for privacy. Secondly the breakfast -... More

I'd have to agree 100% with all of the other reviews. Our room was small, but it was really cosy, had a great view of the lighthouse and was really comfortable! The staff were also unbelievably nice - one example: on the day we were to check-out we were headed to Samaria Gorge really early in the morning. Since we... More

After a multi-stop trip of Greece, Alcanea was the penultimate final destination. The supreme service and purely picturesque views from our rooms made it the most ideal choice for our final locale. Helene and Eva were on duty during our stay and were incredibly warm and helpful throughout our stay. The old port has its own magical aura but staying... More

We are seasoned travellers and have stayed in hotels around the world, so we know what good looks like. This hotel is not a large chain type hotel where you are known by your room number, this hotel and it's staff treat you like individuals staying in their home. It is a 'boutique' hotel and has a feel of a... More
