Like everyone mentioned before, breakfast is especially nice here, looking over the...

Absolutely loved this hotel due to its edge of harbour location. Great Venetian style building with authentic decor whilst still providing modern facilities and comfort. We stayed in the largest room on the top floor which had great views directly out of harbour to the sea. It's situated as far end of harbour so you're not in the thick of...

Dear Nina P, Thank you for sharing your experience at Alcanea Boutique Hotel! This is a 500 years old building, Venetian style and we try to keep its good shape and comfort really hard!

During our three weeks in Greece, the Alcanea Boutique Hotel was our favorite of the eight places we stayed. The truly caring staff, the beautiful old building with updated modern conveniences, and the location made it remarkable. The room was clean and quiet, air conditioned, with a fridge, large bathroom and wonderful shower. Our hosts made sure we had everything...

My husband and I stayed at Alcanea for the first few days of our honeymoon. The room we got overlooks the lighthouse. Even though it was their smallest room, it was clean, modern fixtures, comfortable big bed with very nice bedding. We did excursions every day, which meant we missed their breakfast (except on the last day). They accommodated us...

We stayed at Alcanea for four nights amid our two week honeymoon trip in Greece. We could not have been more pleased with our stay. We arrived early in the morning and were eagerly greeted by Eva.

This hotel is beautiful throughout with gorgeous rooms and lounges with a great secret courtyard. The staff were very attentive and nothing was too much trouble for them, all very friendly. On wonderful views across the old harbour of Chania. A very old hotel but beautifully kept making it a wonderful place to stay.

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....

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,...
