After a multi-stop trip of Greece, Alcanea was the penultimate final destination. The supreme service and purely picturesque views from our rooms made it the most ideal choice for our final locale. Helene and Eva were on duty during our stay and were incredibly warm and helpful throughout our stay. The old port has its own magical aura but staying...

We are seasoned travellers and have stayed in hotels around the world, so we know what good looks like. This hotel is not a large chain type hotel where you are known by your room number, this hotel and it's staff treat you like individuals staying in their home. It is a 'boutique' hotel and has a feel of a...

We only stayed one night at Alcanea but we had a great experience. The hotel itself is centuries old and has been very tastefully restored and decorated. Our hostess was very friendly and helpful and breakfast was just fantastic. It's perfectly located in the old port frontage. I highly recommend it.

This is really an exceptional hotel . We where upgraded for free to the suite. The staff is great . The suite is big luxurious with a stunning view of the sea. Breakfast is great and they remember what you ordered the day before and bring them by themselves as soon as you sit .

We loved the Alcanea. Eleni welcomed us warmly and made us feel right at home. Our room on the first floor (Americans would call it the second floor) was attractively decorated and, most importantly, had a wonderful small balcony (with chairs and a small table) overlooking the fabulous old Venetian port. The authentic beamed ceiling must have been 12 feet...

We stayed for 5 days in room 6 and we enjoyed every moment of it. The room had a spectacular view to the old lighthouse of the Chania old port. Service was excellent, breakfast was delicious (we enjoyed the fennel pie and the pie from Sfakia). Eva at the reception was very helpful and gave us great advice on where...

We spent only one night in room 5 but it has been a very delightful experience. Eva and the whole staff were really kind and toughtful. Our room was not really spacious but perfectly clean, equipped, charming. Location is excellent, in front of the old port but marginal enough to avoid the noise of the night. Only one weakness: shower...

We stayed in room V111 which was huge!! More of a penthouse than a room, souring high ceilings. The eclectic luxurious style of the room was perfect for the beautifully restored building. This was the best accommodation we stayed in on our Greek Island trip, saved the best till last and had a beautiful 2 night stay. The girls in...

We stayed in room number 7 for 2 nights and it was our favorite place to stay of our 10 days in Greece! The room was gorgeous with the most perfect view of the harbor from the balcony! It was our honeymoon, so we were greeted with rose petals in the shape of a heart on the bed AND a...
