I find the review score grossly overrated. The hotel is in an old building with very high ceilings. The rooms are dark and unpractical, and the atmosphere is spooky. We booked a triple room (for quite a high price for such a town) - yet were first given a double, which was dark and very basic, then changed to a quadruple on request. The outlay was very strange: three wooden doors to the outside (including one from the toilet), holes in the walls with strange old relicts, an additional bed in the kitchen section in place of a table. No aircon, only a portable fan. Had to climb beds to reach the toilet. The biscuits we left in the kitchen got infested with ants. On the ground floor, there are windowless bedrooms which you have to pass to reach the reception. Overall, we did not feel cosy there. The hotel needs renovation and much effort by the management to make it more practical and pleasant. The location is very central though.

OK place for a short stay in Sao Filipe. It is conveniently located near the old town centre, with a decent sea food restaurant nearby, and the upper appartment has an all-around balcony with excellent views over the church square and ocean.

São Filipe, for us the most beautiful town in the Cape Verde's after Mindelo, is well known for its 'Sobrado's', colonial houses with usually two storeys and several balconies for the more affluent. They are located mainly in the central lower part, where in one of them is to be found the 'Casa Beiramar', the 'House by the Sea'. When entering the accomodation one sees first some rather small rooms. Upstairs there is a larger 'Double Room with Sea Vew', which we had originally booked, but didn't like, since the double-bed was put against a wall in such a way that the person sleeping in the back would have to step over the other person to get out. So we moved into the more expensive apartment next door, which we liked for its space, the high ceiling and the views from balconies or terraces on three sides. One view was over the sea towards Brava island, another towards a square with the church Nossa Senhora da Conceiçao and one looked into the courtyard, where breakfast gets served. Our apartment had a kitchen with no fridge, but with oil, vinegar, tea, coffee, salt and pepper already there. It also had dishwash liquid, but no kitchen towel, although it was written there that one gets charged an extra 2000 Esc (20 €), if the kitchen is left uncleaned. There was no garbage bin and we had to ask for a kitchen towel, as we also had to ask for toilet paper. The place is owned by Marisa and Mustafa, who are mainly occupied with their accomodation 'Casa Marisa' up in the Chã das Caldeiras. It is two ladies, who look after the 'Casa Beiramar', usually in turns, Camilla and Eineida. They are friendly, but a bit shy and not very professional. To communicate with them one has to pull out whatever one has learnt from the Portuguese language. Also they will do what one tells them, but only then, like having the room serviced (once they do it, they do it well). Unfortunately the place looks in some ways quite neglected. From the several lamps in the apartment, only about half of them worked. On some walls the paint peels off. The wardrobe had just two clothes hangers against the outer side. In the bathroom there was only a big bar of used soap, probably meant for all subsequent guests as well. A liquid soap dispenser would have been more appreciated. On the positive side one has to mention that two bottles of water are offered, when the room is handed over (something we hardly ever saw in the Cape Verde's). There is also a safe and a hair-dryer (again never seen on these islands). The mattresses of the beds were good. WiFi worked very well on the terrace in front of the room (with a table and chairs). Perfect is the location.. Not only for the great views (of the apartment), but also for the fact that the place is in walking distance to the town center with its restaurants and shops and that it is quiet at night. Breakfast gets served at 8am and there again the two ladies are doing a great job. There are even olives on the table, not ever seen here, but maybe inspired by Mustafa's Turkish background.

We stayed one night at Casa Beiramar, after staying one night at Casa Marisa and we were diappointed. Because the location is realy nice. A refurbished old House close to the ocean with really nice and friendly staff. By the way the dinner at the house is really good. BUT our room was run down, the bathroom was not clean and run down too. And this condition can be seen everywhere at the house. It seemed to be left after the refurbishment some years ago. I do not want to belittle the stay. I only want to please to take care of it before you a ne refurbishment will be needed. Because we saw the Casa Marisa, which is run by the same owner and his wife. And this place is one of the most beautifull places of the Islands we saw definteley.

When we arrived (late in the afternoon), the front door was closed which scared us a little bit. Eventually (thanks to our taxi driver!) we got into contact with the staff and could enter our room. We were the only guests at that moment (the beginning of July is a very quiet period for tourists in Cape Vert) and we could choose the room we preferred, for the same price. We had the biggest room with kitchen, but didn't use it. It was a beautiful building, the room and bathroom were quite big. The balcony was huge (and had a lot of sunshine). Very nice breakfast outside on the terrace! The guy staying there (Zuka) was our guide through the island and up the volcano. He speaks Creole, Portuguese, English and French and we recommend him as your tour guide!!! The staff, on the other hand, didn't speak other languages but Creole and Portuguese. They offer meals, but we didn't try them. Really beautiful place to stay!!
