I will definitely stay at Alcanea again when I return to Chania.
LOCATION: It is in a great location - in the charming Old Town and within walking distance of everything, including the bus depot if you want to take a day trip. On one of the 5 nights I stayed, there were a few loud party-goers on the street and they woke me up. But if I'd kept the window closed and used air conditioning instead, this wouldn't have been a problem.
ROOM: My room (Room III - Double Room for Single Use) was small and cosy but perfect for my needs. It might be a bit too cramped for two people, unless you each have small suitcases! It had a view of the Egyptian Lighthouse which was gorgeous, especially at night. The water from the shower goes everywhere as there is no shower screen, but as long as I laid down a towel to soak up the water, this didn't bother me.
BREAKFAST: Breakfast was included in my room rate and was lovely. A variety of things are on offer, from eggs & toast, to more traditional Cretan-style breakfasts.
STAFF: The staff were all really really nice, especially Eleni who was very welcoming on my arrival. They speak fluent English too, which helps!
All in all, a great stay at Alcanea. Tell your friends.
