Alcanea is a beautiful character boutique hotel. It is well placed on the corner of Chania's harbour front and is surrounded by venetian properties oozing charm. The team at Alcanea have to be amongst the best I've experienced. They're friendly and approachable, offering help without being intrusive on your time. The breakfasts are superb offering a great mix of Cretan... More

Old Venetian building - we had two rooms one with a vew over the harbour - the other on the 2nd floor with a vew towards the sea. Quiet because of thick walls. The two rooms we had were beautiful. Staff lovely... More

Before I booked this hotel I read a lot of positive reviews about this place, so I wondered what could be so special about this hotel? Well, it’s a fact: as a single I booked the small room for a week, but I received a complete and superb experience! Although the small room is… small, if you organize yourself a... More

Hotel Arcane is beautiful. It's conveniently located in "Old Town" Chania, Crete. This place has so much personality, It hard to hard to do it justice. It is located in obviously a very old building, however it has been beautifully refurbished with a "bohemian" flare. Everyone was so very accommodating to us. Our ferry from Santorini was very late and... More

Alcanea boutique hotel is for sure the hotel to stay in when you visit Crete. An amazing location just by the old port. The room was spacious with great attention to details and overlooks the water. Excellent food and service. It really beats any 5 star hotel I have been to. A big thank you to Eva and Ilenie for... More

During our stay there was amazing hospitality including eleni making us sandwiches at midnight for us to pack the next day for an early start. We have travelled a lot and have... More

We stayed in suite 7 overlooking the port and it was amazing. The location was perfect and the staff was very friendly. The rooms are very modern and nice- I have nothing but good things to say about the whole experience

Highly recommend. I had the most wonderful and relaxing stay here. I will be back. The staff were one of the highlights - extremely welcoming, helpful and accommodating. The rooms are exactly as you would imagine for a boutique hotel on a Greek island and if you have a view - it will be amazing. Location is superb, breakfast delicious... More

The hotel is located in a very beautiful old building. Their terrace in front has a perfect view on the harbor with the famous lighthouse. Our room was with a view on the fortress. Also the hotel has nice private terrace in side and the rooms are beautiful. Our breakfast the next day was delicious, recommended are the Traditional pies... More
