4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Colonial House B&B in good location.
Nice colonial era house that has been converted to a B&B. Rooms are all on inner courtyard with a pool. Hotel is in a good location. Very convenient to all attractions. Rooms don't have air conditioning, only fans. Had to pay in cash when checking out.

Great place. Wonderful staff, good location and nice breakfasts.

3/5 Okay

Nice simple hostal with local people
Nice hostal, simple with friendly people. Staff could be a little better informed on what to do, attractions, dining/going out and rooms have no A/C (which is fine), but the fan could be stronger as well as the shower could be better designed to keep water only around the shower and not the whole bath - anyway, it is a 2.5 star classified; so you get what you pay - still, clean and great location!

Quiet Guest House, Central to everything
Wonderful classic guest house in central Mindelo. Walking distance to everything, including the Ferry which is about 15 minutes away. Quiet location and wonderful central pool to cool off after a hot walk. Rooftop sitting area if you want to see the views.
Stayed 1 night in Oct 2017
