Just an overnight stay, but staff was friendly, the room good value and the location is great to explore Mindelo (the city was not that attractive we found). Not bad for a stopover onwards to Santo Antao though. Staff can easily arrange a taxi to bring you to the ferry boat as well.

Rooms are nice and clean, friendly and serviceminded staff. The view over Mindelo and the harbour is one of the best in the town. Quiet in the evenings but just 5-10 minutes walk to bars and restaurangs downtown.

Thanks for a great stay! I was in Ninho for a week, enjoying the beautiful views over Mindelo towards Santo Antao. This room is large, comfortable and has a terrace - well worth the money. This guesthouse is a little up the hill but only a short walk from the centre. I like the location because of the stunning views... More

We stayed in Ninho room for 3 nights. It was exactly as it was advertised - good size, clean, balcony view over Mindelo where you could watch the sunset. The owner Amoury was there during our stay and spoke really good English and gave some great advise on good restaurants. Breakfast was bread, jam, fruit and tea or coffee and... More

The host Amoury helped with with any questions that we had (lack of Creole and Portuguese prevented us from conversing with the local staff). Which was a great touch. Rooms were cleaned daily to a high standard. Basic accommodation, but for the price perfect. Breakfast is included- although some eggs would have been great. Bread, jam, fruit and cheese were...

I already had several experiences in this hotel, also several rooms. If you are more the exploring kind, and more into just clean rooms instead of big luxury hotels for a very good price this is the place to be! Upon arrival untill the last day your are hosted by a very gentle family!

This is probably they best place to stay in MIndelo. Fantastic views, great staff, excellent rooms for the price, etc. Would stay here again if visiting the island and would recommend to all my friends and family! Stayed in the Vista Suite and the name lived up to expectations.

I stayed 4 nights in 2 different rooms. Both of them were the upper ones: Ninho and Vista. The rooms were very comfortable, big and tidy. The best of these rooms is the view from the balcony. You can see all of the bay of Mindelo and enjoy the sun almost the whole day. The cleaning service and the breakfast... More
