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

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

Stayed in this hotel for nine days. Wonderfully situated on the harbour with views out of this world. 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
