Chania is one of those discoveries you rarely find when travelling the world. To be able to experience this unique and special Old City in a very special boutique hotel that is Alcanea enhances the pleasure. Yes it was a little stressful to find a park, "scarce as hens' teeth" and trundle our luggage into the Old Town, pedestrian only.... More

Staff very friendly. Eva greeted us when we checked in and gave us so much helpful info about Chania Town. She made spa and dinner reservations for us. The rooms were very large and the breakfast was fantastic. A must stay for a few nights in Chania Town. Loved everything about it.

Warm hospitality and care from Eva and the wonderful staff who work here! The room was beautiful with a wonderful view of the lighthouse. Breakfast was abundant and delicious! Most definitely the best breakfast of any hotel I've stayed in. 😀 We really enjoyed our stay here and look forward to returning soon.

Very well located at the old port overlooking the light house and next to the maritime museum as well as restaurants and bars. Public parking easy walking distance. The best breakfast ever! Out on the terrace. Fresh fruit and juices. Local Crete delicacies. Everything. Any amount served with pleasure out on the terrace overlooking the old port.

Thanks to Eva and all the Alcanea team, we spent 4 dreaming days in Chania, despite a stormy weather in winter. Very comfortable and luxurious housing full of history. Delicious breakfast and a very helpful and warmly staff. Our best experience in Crete. We wish to come back!

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.

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!
