Designed for travellers who wish to experience the authentic spirit of an ancient town in an environment that offers peace and tranquillity, this intimate and exclusive hotel on the waterfront has eight carefully designed rooms ranging from beautifully appointed doubles to a spacious family room with space for five people.

The building that now forms Alcanea dates from the Venetian period and was the office of the Greek revolutionary and statesman, Eleftherios Venizelos, for 24 years.

It was fully restored during spring 2011 with great sensitivity to the preservation and conservation of the building's architectural heritage.
The enchanting complex of terraces and patios, the well-preserved hand-carved stone façades, the colourful ceramics, the elaborate woodwork and decorative elements all maintain a perfect balance between tradition and modern comforts.
Alcanea Boutique Hotel is magnificently positioned on the waterfront of the Old Port, right next to the Nautical Museum by the entrance to the Venetian Fortress of Firkas.
It offers spectacular views of the Egyptian Lighthouse, the Venetian Port, the Old Town of Chania and the Venetian Fortress. The closest beach, Nea Chora, is a ten-minute walk from the hotel.
