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

Very good quiet hotel with great view over the harbour. The breakfast was good with fresh bread and good coffee. We took a taxi to the ferry but boy can also walk this. We arrived late and had dinner nearby in a spanish tapas restaurant.

Very nice B&B in Mindelo. Rooms are clean and nicely decorated and not very expensive. It is located at a hill, just outside town. It is recommended to take a taxi to the restaurants and bars, but we were very relaxed and didn't feel unsafe at all. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. The view over the city and... More

A recommended place to stay. Very good value, a bit out of the centre of town and up a steep hill, so perhaps not best for those who find it difficult to walk. Make the right room choice, as some have stunning views and spacious balconies from which to enjoy the sun. The suites are excellent and not expensive. Friendly... More

This was a great place to stay in Mindelo. We stayed in the Vasco Suite which was a great room with amazing view. Veronico and his family were very happy to help at all times and assisted in getting over to Santo Antao and guides - I would thoroughly recommend using them. If we were to ever be in Mindelo...
