We went there for a coffee and cake. The place is cosy but there were many flies around which personally I didn't quite like. Personnel was not very friendly. I went to see the cake choices and they were having one of the two cakes outside the fridge which I didn't personally like. It was not extremely hot but I... More

We travelled as three friends to Cape Verde in November and our first port of call was Mindelo and the Casa Cafe Mindelo. It is an absolutely charming hotel with views out over the Atlantic and a gorgeous roof terrace. Breakfast was excellent and served in the cafe downstairs that also hosts live music in the evenings. Everything worked well,... More

Nice location. Easy going, clean and just nice. Food: try the tuna. Tasty. If not leaving tomorrow I would stay longer and hang out. Live music adds on. Smile while listening due to the enthusiastic singers. Come along and enjoy. And enjoy companies of other tourists and local.

Central location was noisy but manageable for one night stay. The room we stay in was a bit small. Breakfast is good. The shower and toilet is tiny. Internet works in the communial places. Nice relaxing terrace upstairs. Owner help us with all that we asked for.

I was really needing a place like Casa Cafe Mindelo. I work in a lot of African countries and I am always traveling between them. It was my third time in Mindelo but my first with "new" Casa Cafe Mindelo. In fact this is the kind of place that we feel in home. The rooms are very nice, King size... More

Great live music downstairs! Lovely decor and finishing touches for the modern design junkie. For light sleepers you may want to choose another neighborhood. I would love to come back to explore Santo Antao as well with Casa Cafe Mindelo as a base!

This hotel is in a building with a lot of character and a nice bar and café downstairs. The room had very little furniture, just a clothes rail, a double bed low down near the floor and a small table next to the bed. The room was clean but it had a cover on the bed that had stains on... More

The one at the first floor is large, has a nice bathroom and view on the street. Breakfast is very good and served downstairs at the restaurant. The restaurant is very nice; it is... More

Casa Mindelo is a small and cosy hotel, situated near the marina of Mindelo and the center of the little town. The rooms are stylish and clean and the service very polite and personal . The free wi-fi connection is possibly the fastest in town. Breakfast is served downstairs at the Cafe Casa, which operates also as a restaurant. We... More
