What an amazing place. Perfectly located in the center of Mindelo, we could not have hoped for a better location. Staying at this hotel made us feel like we had stepped back in time to Southern Europe in the early 1970s, maybe with the exception of the internet connection, which was quite good in our room. We took the larger family room on the 4th floor, which was a considerable walk up, but definitely worth it because of the amazing views of the ocean, harbor, and street action below from the terrace. Breakfast was generous and the staff were kind. Recommended.
