LOVELY EXPERIENCE, LOCATION A hidden gem! This magnificent heritage 500+ year old property is conveniently located on the edge of the Chania port area (situated directly opposite the lighthouse and next to the Maritime Museum). It is a very professionally run establishment with impeccable views of the Chania port area (where room views permit). Key points: - Location. See above comments. Sufficiently away from the hustle and bustle of Chania central town but only a 1-2 minute easy stroll to the centre and to Talos Square (taxi stand situated behind the property). - Professional crew / front desk and kitchen. Big thanks to Eva, Aliki, Nicholas and crew. Relaxed vibe yet things still get done efficiently and with a smile. - Great BIG beds for a comfortable sleep. Finally, an establishment in Greece offering king size beds! - Great food and drinks at the cafe on ground floor (with views of the Chania Port area) with an outside sitting area underneath old vine leaves - a delight! Breakfast is good with tasty choices (menu is a la carte). - Rooms vary in size given age of building so ask what room type/size is being offered. - Modern bathrooms and A/C worked well. - Bath robes supplied (great stuff). - Water (large bottle) was added daily to room fridge (refreshing to see, high customer care factor). - 10-15 minute walk to local beach (which is of a reasonable standard, sunbeds available) and a number of very nice seaside tavernas (worth the walk) away from the bustle of Chania town/port area. - No onsite Lift (due to building heritage listing). Staff do assist with luggage to upper floors.

We were warmly welcomed by Eva which set the stage for a wonderful stay at Alcanea Boutique Hotel. Our room was charming and comfortable and we enjoyed using the sitting area in the courtyard. The hotel is well located with a view on the port while set back so that it is not in the bustle pedestrian traffic. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious and special options were prepared for the gluten free and dairy free needs of one diner. Our laundry was done in one day and well organized by the hotel. Next time we need to stay longer!

About to spend my third night at Alcanea and my experience cannot be faulted. Friendly and informative staff, beach towels on hand and a gorgeous location on the harbour and within touching distance of all Chania has to offer, whilst still remaining very peaceful. Would definitely recommend and will be staying again. Staying in room 3 which offers compact but immaculate accommodation with a gorgeous view of the lighthouse. Thank you to all!

This hotel was a perfect slice of Chania. Our room looked out on the harbor and the street below. I'll never forget the view. We had our two children (10 and 7) with us, and our room was nice and big enough for us all. (They put two twin beds in there along with our bed). The staff were very kind and warm. Free breakfast was such a great touch, and the waitress was wonderful. Location is very good--close (but not within view of) where you park; close to shops, bars, etc., but just enough up the street so as to feel fairly quiet. We stepped out our door and were right there to walk around the harbor. Definitely recommend this place highly. It was our best hotel in Crete. Chania is absolutely gorgeous and so much fun.

Really loved the location, service and history of this hotel. While we got the smallest room in the hotel, it was fine just for the night we were in town. It's just the bedroom and a good size bathroom. It has the view of the Lighthouse. The free breakfast was cooked to order off the menu. The location is in the heart of the Old Harbor.

I booked this place on the back of some great reviews on trip advisor and i'm glad to say that this place not only lived up to it but exceeded my expectations. Location wise, it was a perfect short distance from all the Tavernas, shops and restaurants within Chania old town and you get a great view of the lighthouse from room 1. Its also next to the Venetian fort and museum which is worth visiting. The host Eva is nothing short of amazing. She is very attentive and her communication is great. Any problems and she or her staff are absolutely on it. As for the rest of the staff, that are brilliant, very kind, polite and most of all, they are always smiling. Everything about Alcanea is boutique in terms of the quaintness, the decor including the hatchet rood over the outside tables with grapes hanging from it. The Cretan breakfast was lovely and perfect for the hot weather. The price per night was very reasonable and would definitely go back to Alcanea Boutique Hotel should I re-visit Chania again. Thankyou Eva and your team.

This review is long overdue, but I had such an amazing experience at Alcanea. My arrival to Chania didn’t start off the smoothest, but Eva and team’s hospitality immediately put me at ease and helped turn things around. I felt like I was treated like family which brought so much comfort since I was traveling solo. Eva provided a ton of recommendations and made sure I had everything I needed to enjoy my stay. I had such a positive experience at Alcanea and looking forward to visiting again in the future!

Booked this hotel last year based on reviews & area. Couldn’t have been happier with our choice.This hotel & staff exceeded expectations. This is a beautiful 500 yr hotel, the rooms are tastefully & sympathetically done. House keeping was excellent & rooms were always cleaned to a high standard. The breakfast at the hotel was also excellent with a wide & varied choice. I personally loved this hotel & would happily recommend it. I would like to thank all the staff at the hotel who made my stay so enjoyable, so until next time.

Probably one of best locations in Chania Harbour, minutes from everything and a very short walk to the taxi rank. The hotel is in an old, 500 years, Venetian build so has all the quirks and charms of this but also all the mod cons of a modern boutique hotel. The staff were amazing! Eva helped us before arrival and during our stay and Aliki provided so much information on arrival and when ever needed. We had breakfast included which was a delight to sit and watch the world go by while sampling local dishes served by the most charming young lady. Our only gripe was we did not book early enough to get a harbour view but in a way this was good as it would have been tempting to spend too much time in the room as they were amazing! Yes we had a peep when neighbours checked out, but do not be put off booking the standard room as it was more than adequate and well presented and more than served our needs. Would I recommend? 110% for sure!!!!
