I experienced friendly, welcoming and helpful service, the room was wonderful with a stunning view. It was very comfortable bed, and nice bathroom, in keeping with the venetian theme. The location at the point of the harbour/waterfront area was good - a little bit removed from the bustle of town, but extremely close to all the resteraunts and shopping areas.... More

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this hotel! Entering our room (Room 1) was a "wow" moment- it was just beautiful with the most amazing view of the harbour from the balcony. While the room was beautifully decorated in a traditional manner, the bathroom was very modern, well appointed, and spacious. The room was also very spacious- we... More

We stopped at Alcanea, which had a quaint outdoor seated area, draped with grape vines. We sat and ordered a frappe, which was absolutely delicious. But what was most impressive was the views both into to the old streets of Chania and over the harbour. I recommend going early in the morning before the area gets too crowded and busy,... More

We had an excellent stay at the Alcanea. It's ideally situated along the harbor in Chania. The staff was particularly friendly and helpful. They had excellent dinner recs. We had the family room which was very spacious and comfortable. Breakfasts were excellent. The only drawback was the lack of on site parking. Usually had to walk about 5 minutes away.

Dear Sandy L, Thank you for your kind words about Alcanea Boutique Hotel! We are really glad that we met your expectations throughout your stay! Unfortunately parking is not allowed inside the old city of Chania all year round and this is something that keeps our city free of cars and noise, easy for everyone to walk around. Looking forward... More

So pretty, right on the harbor w a view of the sea. Very peaceful. Decorated with fresh flowers on the terrace and light music. Delicious breakfast at reasonable prices. Good service. Loved the yogurt!

We visited Alcanea Boutique Hotel for a drink on their terrace so can't say much about the hotel, however the terrace is clean, cosy, comfortable and has a lovely view of Chania and the sea. Prices are quite cheap and the quality of drinks and food seem good (i had a glass of white wine, my partner an ice coffee).... More

What a wonderful find! This is a fabulous little hotel in a fabulous old Venetian port. Wow, the building is only about 500 years old, but stunning.. You cannot fault anything. The service and the staff were too good to be true. So helpful and so kind. The breakfast was so good. The café bar terrace was absolutely charming. Alcanea... More

Our stay at the Alcanea was great although short as we spent only one night. The room was spacious with the terrace overlooking the patio of the Nautical Museum and the Lighthouse. The decoration was kept old school- i guess as it was back in the days. The bathroom could have been better designed and renovated. The staff was super... More

We stayed at this hotel several years ago and since then each year when visiting Chania we always return to their café bar/ terrace of an evening to enjoy an aperitif and also the wonderful views overlooking the Venetian Harbour. Such a lovely spot to spend an evening.
