Charming hotel on the edge of the outer harbour at the end of the touristy waterfront strip. As such location is ideal as away from the hubbub of the restaurants but everything is still close by. We had booked a lovely room overlooking the harbour but unfortunately the neighbouring hotel was undergoing renovation work which meant our room was very... More

No complains, everything is exceptional plus the staff will go out of their way to please you, always with a smile.Full of details (loved the book selection that was available in our room) that add up to a "homey" feeling and with a great view of the city's trademark venetian port+lighthouse.You won't resist spending long, relaxed hours on the small...

My mother and I visited Chania during a trip to Greece for my college graduation in June of 2013. We were so incredibly fortunate that we found Alcanea and were able to stay for a week of the trip. The staff was more than helpful, incredibly friendly pointing us towards incredible hidden restaurants, lesser known stunning beaches and helping in... More

We stayed in this lovely Venetian style hotel for 4 nights in October 2013 and wished we could have stayed longer. Ideally situated on the harbour in the Old Town and next to the fort (our balcony overlooked the interior of the fort and the ocean). The patio on the ground floor serves drinks and small meals (excellent quality) and... More

We stayed in the Alcanea for ten days in September and found it everything we had wanted and more. Everyone working at the Alcanea was helpful and polite: bus timetables were sorted, hire cars were booked and even a breakfast provided in our fridge for us to have when we had to get up before the allotted breakfast time to...

Loved this hotel. The staff was super helpful and friendly, even when we were tardy getting in the first night. We got lost and they waited for us and made sure we found our way. Breakfast was the best we had in Greece. Wonderful selections. We got over excited about the selections and ordered way too much the first day.... More

Alcanea is a beautiful hotel situated at one end of the Old Venetian harbour in Chania. It is easily walkable from the bus station in 10 minutes. We stayed in Room 1 which was huge even with triple sharing. I enjoyed the balcony very much, taking in the view of the harbour and people going by while sipping the complimentary... More

Lovely rooms...we had two. Old Venetian building with lots of character set back on the busy port. Really good breakfasts with interesting meal choices. Raki drink in the room was really tasty and refilled daily. I would highly recommend this hotel. Staff people very friendly and helpful.

A very enjoyable stay in this lovely old house converted to a hotel. This has got to be the best location in Chania. Close to all you need - restaurants and shops, as well as ten minutes walk from the bus station. You can choose to sit just outside the hotel and eat breakfast whilst looking across the beautiful old... More

We loved everything about this hotel. Everything was excellent- the service, friendly and helpful staff, beautiful rooms in a 400 year old building, great location on the bay, lovely views, a delicious traditional breakfast. It is one of my favorite hotels an first couldn't recommend it more highly. Annette and Juergen
