We enjoyed a magnificent stay in Chania, made extra special by our stay at this wonderful boutique hotel. Right from the outset we knew we were in for a great experience, check in was smooth and all staff extremely enthusiastic and helpful. The room was lovely with a fantastic view of the sea through the castle behind. It was spotlessly... More

We stayed in the family room on the top floor which was plenty large enough. I was worried we'd miss not having a balcony but the tables outside overlooking the harbour were fantastic. The Hotel is 300 years old but the rooms are luxury air con and furnished in a traditional style. Bathrooms are top modern with lovely towels and... More

Time here to appreciate Venetian and Ottoman Chania out of season - Alcanea Boutique Hotel is full of deep, bright colours, magical corners and a room filled with light. Eva pays attention to every detail and provides in depth local knowledge. Poli orea!

I will make a critic about the bar that is hosted in the basement of this hotel: definetely the best view of the old harbour in a quiet, atmospheric enviroment, away from the overcrouded places around the old harbour. Spend your time there (day and night) and you wont regret it.

I typically don’t leave reviews, but others need to know how wonderful the Alcanea Boutique Hotel is! My husband and I stayed at Alcanea for five nights during our honeymoon, and it was absolutely fantastic. Not only is the location perfect - on the water with a great view, but slightly removed from the main strip so that it feels... More

My husband and I were celebrating our 10 year anniversary trip in Greece and this hotel was one of my favorite places we have ever stayed at. The small touches the staff put on were fantastic. We had the most amazing view of the port and the included breakfast was delicious. The staff was so friendly and helpful and the... More

I had the most wonderful holiday at Alcanea. The entire staff was so helpful in providing suggestions to explore Crete. I couldn't possibly have had as many wonderful and surprising experiences as I did without their direction, guidance, patience and recommendations. I feel in love with Crete, and its people, and my stay at Alcanea highlights the best of the... More

Our stay at the Alcanra boutique hotel was comfortable and enjoyable. The Breakfast was fantastic while the interior of the hotel was remodeled in 2011 it is also very characteristic of the setting. The staff are extremely helpful and the food at the restaurant is excellent. The location is also a plus being right on the harbor.

This hotel is located at the old port in Chania and rooms facing the harbour have a fabulous view. Ours was on the second floor with a little balcony overlooking the harbour where we sat each evening with a glass of prosecco watching the passing parade before venturing out to dine on delicious seafood at nearby restaurants. The room was... More
