I took a side-trip from Ilha do Sal where I was on holiday to visit the birthplace of Cesária Évora, world renowned Cape Verdean singer, and decided on the Casa Colonial as the place to spend two nights. I was not disappointed. The staff were charming and very helpful, arranging both a tour of the island and also of the... More

This B&B is located in city center, on a residential street that is quiet other than the barks from dogs. There is only one room with it's own bathroom. It is dark (one window that faces the inner courtyard which includes a pool) and the bathroom had no hot water. However, it is artistically decorated, has high ceilings and a... More

We spent 4 nights there before going to Santo Antao. The hotel is located in a great location : in a calm area but still right in the center of Mindelo. Nice and clean with really friendly staff. Go for it!

The hotel is like a road in Morocco. There is a place in the middle of the house with a pool where people can hang out and relax. We stayed there twice when we were in Mindelo. The second time due to a flight that was cancelled due to the weather. On our second stay the team went beyond themselves... More

Although we were a bit disappointed by mindelo itself, this hotel was more than a pleasant surprise. Very nice atmosphere, exceptionally welcoming staff, beautiful rooms and a good breakfast. They speak many languages and are very helpful with their tips.

Had 2 very enjoyable nights here. The staff were warm, friendly and very helpful. The ground floor room was clean, tidy and handy for a cooling dip in the small pool. The bed was really comfortable. Quiet, yet handy location. The building is really stylish. We highly recommend the Casa Colonial.

Our favorite place to stay during our two-week Cape Verde trip. A beautifully restored home on a quiet street in the heart of downtown Mindelo. We stayed one night in a room on the second floor in the rear of the hotel and then again in a room on the second floor that faced the street. Both rooms were great.... More

Dear Sir/Madame So sorry to hear your stay with us was not as enjoyable as we hoped. Could you let me know which room you were in so that we can make a not of that. Also, sorry about the tea - was it too cold or too weak. I'm actually Scottish (the Old Alliance) so whisky's more my drink.... More
