If you are looking for a very special stay on Crete, this is the place. Very charming older homes turned into boutique hotel at the edge of Chania's Venetian Harbor. Wonderful staff, lovely cafe in a magical spot. Breakfast options were also amazing and superior wifi.

From the moment we arrived at Alcanea, our experience was wonderful. The hotel is situated on the western edge of the old Venetian Port which makes the views spectacular. The hotel is one of the oldest buildings in Chania which has been redone with a bit of a Moroccan feel. We were in Room VII with an adorable balcony that... More

We spent 3 nights in this great hotel. The decor is beautiful, eclectic and full of character and style. The service is personal and advice is well-considered. Breakfast was very generous, delicious and relaxed. The hotel is flexible and accommodating in its approach to its guests. We prefer to stay out of heavily tourist areas and this hotel was positioned... More

Lovely little boutique hotel in a great location. Stayed in room IV, great balcony and view of the lighthouse, not cheap but worth it for a small hotel with lots of character. The cafe downstairs provides a great chill out space out of the searing heat ;)

The Alcanea Boutique Hotel is perfectly positioned on the waterfront of the Old Port. It is around 17 km away from the airport, so it is easily accessible with the car. The hotel does not have its own parking but you can leave your car in the public parking area 5 min from the hotel. You can also take a... More

What a wonderful surprise to arrive at this romantic little hotel in the heart of Chania. We had a lovely room with a balcony and view of the old port. The service was fantastic with a delicious breakfast included each morning. They provided an early morning breakfast and take-away lunch for the day we hiked the Samaria Gorge and the... More

I cannot rave enough about this hotel. They were incredibly helpful with ferry tickets and taxis from the airport and such even before we got there. When we arrived they greeted us with such helpfulness and friendliness. The room was large and had a fantastic view of the harbor (my only complaint being the bed was a little hard for... More

We were just staying here for the one night and choose it because of the reviews and the location too as it was next door to the Naval History Museum, tucked away in the corner of the old harbor. Staff were so friendly and helpful, and the shared areas beautiful too. We booked a basic double room, which was fine,... More

This was an excellent hotel right on the waterfront in the old harbour. We had a view of the harbour from our room (sea view with balcony - would highly recommend it). Lovely furnishings. The staff were friendly and helpful and the breakfast was great. Being right in the old town you will need to walk a short way to... More
