Casa cafè Mindelo is very well located in the Old Square of the town, walking distance from everything. The hotel has some cozy, well furnished rooms. 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

There is a Casa Cafe restaurant below and the... More

I loved this place. The rooms were clean, freshly updated, good showers, with overhead fans. WiFi is provided free to guests, who also benefit from the colourful and trendy cafe down below. Here the food is freshly cooked and filling, the service friendly and swift. And there's the added bonus of live music at the weekend. Casa Cafe Mindelo is... More

The best place in Sao Vicente. People here are nice and you feel immediately at home. I stayed a week at the guest house in a very comfortable room, new and with a nice bathroom inside. The location is perfect, in the Center on the town in front of the sea. The restaurant is nice, live music almost every day... More

Four of us ate lunch here on our first day in Mindelo. The location is great--smack in the center of town on the port. The cafe has great atmosphere--beautiful wood tables and chairs, interesting African art, and some good songs playing on the stereo. The server was pleasant, and quick to welcome us and take our orders. The food was... More

Casa Café Mindelo is my favorite guest house in the most charming city in Cape Verde. Perfect location, great design, and good value for money. It's a guest house, folks...no t.v.'s in the rooms, shared bathrooms, etc..., but the four rooms themselves are spacious and charming (besides, the two major hotels in Mindelo are pricy and in need of renovation....

This bed and breakfast is right in the centre of Mindelo just back from the sea front and has views over the bay. The house has been completely restored and is very well decorated with a mix of contemporary objects and more traditional pieces of furniture, making it a pleasant place to go back to after wandering around the town....

Right in the center of downtown Mindelo, opposite the jetty, is Casa Café: a small B&B (4 rooms) above the equally named café. The rooms are spacious, spotless clean and very nicely decorated, BUT: they have no en-suite amenities whatsoever: no air conditioning, no TV, no fridge, no bathroom, no toilet, nothing. Just a bed and a cupboard. Bathroom and... More
