As many other reviews have said: the Alcanea is just brilliant. What is so good about it? I don't know where to start! First of all, the building itself has been adapted into a hotel tastefully and retains its history and charm. Secondly, its location is fantastic - right on the harbour (we stayed in two different rooms, both with... More

We've stayed twice at the Alcanea in two different rooms both of which we've liked. The location is fantastic and the entire team who work there are friendly and efficient. Special mention this year goes to Eva and Monika for making our stay particularly enjoyable.

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.
