The rooms at casa colonial are pretty small - nicely and tastefully furnished but hardly any space around the bed, and the bathrooms are small wet rooms. Once you get used to that though, the place is a lovely base - there's a beautiful courtyard with a small but lovely pool, great breakfasts, and incredibly friendly and helpful hosts, who...

Casa Colonial is the place to stay when in Mindello, São Vincente. Located near the port and the Presidential Palace in a quiet street. Its a little gem in lively Mindello. Beautiful rooms with their own bathrooms. A courtyard with a little pool to cool down. Beach chairs to chill and benches to write your memoires on or have the...

Clean guest house, warm welcoming from Samira (who's always waiting for you with some homemade punch :) ), top pool, good location (central mindelo), good breakfast (yoghourt, cafe/tea, fresh fruits and juice, cake...). We recommend it!

We could not have been happier with our choice to stay here. Samira and staff were incredibly friendly and helpful -- especially with strong glasses of ponche! Rooms were spacious, atmosphere was so charming, and the place itself was clean and perfect. Breakfast was a great start to the day, and we really appreciated Samira's recommendations and information about Mindelo....

To start with the bathroom is so small that could not even fit a shower box, so the shower is open and water flows everywhere on the bathroom floor. Also the basin is tiny. And rooms face an internal...

Great hotel with lovely rooms. We stayed in 2 rooms during our visit and both were clean and styled with colonial furniture. There is a nice courtyard and a rooftop terrace. Staff are friendly and the location is very central.

We'd been on Santo Antao for a week where there is nothing very special in the way of accommodation and it was so nice to land here for a night before our flight back to Lisbon. You leave the boiling streets of Mindelo to enter the cool, elegant and simple interior of Casa Colonial. I had asked for a room...

The house is beautifully restored and decorated. The staff are friendly, the breakfast is good for Cap Verde. There is a little plunge pool to cool down in the afternoon. All good. On the other hand you pay nearly twice as much as for a passable Hotel room that has the mod cons that Casa Colonial lacks - aircon, reliable...

We visited Mindelo during "carnaval" and stayed at Casa Colonial. The room was not big, but of a ok size. It was nicely decorated and had an ensuite. Great bed. The breakfast was abundant (for continental notions).
