This hotel is a hidden treasure! Overall customer experience and service are exceptional. Easily accessible & extremely friendly staff, that will do whatever is possible to keep you satisfied. Location of the hotel is fantastic. Is located right at the (busy) old harbour but at the same time is a very peaceful place to stay. We stayed at room 4...

We stayed at the Alcanea for two nights in August. The room was lovely, with a great view of the lighthouse. Lovely comfortable bed, air conditioning that worked, a bottle of raki with the compliments of the hotel, what can I say! The location of the hotel is really good - right on the harbour, so you can sit and...

Dear Mrs. Natalia K, Your review really took us by surprise. Please allow us to point out the facts that took place during your visit in July. As soon as you walked in the hotel we realised that due to a technical problem in our reservation system unfortunately your booking was the only one that could not be retrieved. We...

Anastasia looked after us so well on our stay here for 2 nights. Our room was romantic and had wonderful high ceilings and a balcony over looking the harbour. The breakfast was amazing with many choices, but you must try the goat cheese pie, we tried a few different versions whilst in Crete and Alcanea's was our absolute favourite! Everyone...

The Alcanea sits in a prime position overlooking the picturesque port of Chania and it's superb location is matched only by the friendliness and hospitality of it's staff. This lovely boutique hotel forms a natural link between the Venetian harbour and the labyrinth of bustling back streets that make Chania such a special place. With breakfasts to die for, luxury...

My girlfriend and I stayed at the Alcanea for 4 nights this past June during our trip to Crete. I don't even know where to begin.

We recently spent two nights at Alcanaea, and were very pleased we had made the choice to stay there. The location is perfect - in the Old Town on the harbor, but at the quiet end, which was perfect for our needs. Stayed in Room 5 (I think), which was a tiny room up two flights of stairs. It had...
