Pleasant budget accomodation in Mindelo
The staff were very helpful. I had the small room Estacio which was fine with an attached bathroom. Breakfast was simple but very tasty. The property has good views over the city from the elevated position. It is about a 10 minute walk uphill from the city centre although a 200 escundo taxi isa advised after dark. The only downside was the WiFi which was very patchy.

Belle vue sur la baie de Mindelo
Veronico est sympathique et de bon conseil La suite Vasco est spacieuse et confortable Le petit dejeuner est bon, et, si vous pouvez vous installer sur l'une des 2 tables de la terrasse: c'est top Moins de 10 min. à pied du bord de mer

Spacious room with a nice view
We spent four nights in Hotel Solar Windelo (room "Suite Vasco"). The hotel is located on a hill and therefore offered a very nice view of the city. The room itself was very spacious and clean. The water pressure in the shower was good. The staff was friendly. Breakfast was simple, but good. The hotel also organized a taxi to the airport for us, which was nice. What can be improved: 1. The internet connection was often bad. I did three speed tests at three different times on three different days. The download rate varied between 0.87 and 14.1 Mbps and the upload rate between 0.00 and 1.00 Mbps. Therefore, for example a Skype call is hardly possible. 2. The bed was uncomfortable and narrow (according to Google Measures 1.35 m). If you're not thin and don't want to stick to your partner all night, it gets tight. When one of us moved, the other person woke up. Not as a critique, just as an information: There is neither a refrigerator nor a television in the room. Enjoy the view!;) Additional tourism tax was 220 Escudos per person and night. Overall, we were happy with our choice and can recommend the hotel!

Empfehlenswert trotz Schwachstellen
Wir waren für 5 Nächte im Solar Windelo und hatten zu zweit das Familienzimmer Vent Criador. Dazu sollte man folgendes wissen. Vorteile: das Zimmer umfasst die gesamte unterste Etage und hat eine eigene Terrasse mit Tisch und vier Stühlen mit schöner Aussicht. Das Zimmer ist ca. 50m2 gross. Hat eine eigene Kochnische, Tisch und 4 Stühle. 1 Doppelbett 1.60m breit, ein Etagenbett und ein Babybett. Das Zimmer hat eigenes WIFI und AC. Das Bad mit Dusche ist recht gross. Zum waschen gibt es nur eine Blockseife. Da Duschmittel sehr teuer ist, ist es empfehlenswert dies von zuhause mit zu bringen. Megatv: Schade ist, dass der Zugang zum Hotel direkt vor dem Zimmer und den Fenstern durchgeht. Alle können so reinschauen, wenn die Fensterläden offen sind. Zudem ist ein paar Tritte tiefer die eiserne Eingangstüre die aus Sicherheitsgründen immer verschlossen ist. Bei jedem der kommt oder geht hört man wie die Tür wieder laut ins Schloss fällt. Auch die Terrasse ist nur Halbprivat, da dem Durchgangsverkehr ausgesetzt. Der Sonnenschirm ist defekt und die Stühle und der Tisch müssen nach jedem Gebrauch wieder im Zimmer verräumt werden, da diese sonst von den anderen Gästen entwendet werden. Denn auf den Balkonen der anderen Zimmer gibt es keine Sitzgelegenheiten. Die Unterkunft ist gut. Man wird gut betreut, unser Zimmer war etwas abgewohnt aber sauber. Tolle Aussicht und trotzdem schnell am Hafen 15 Min. oder in der Stadt. Wir hatten trotz den negativen Punkten einen guten Aufenthalt.

Hotel oversells itself on most accounts
If you consider staying at this hotel, be aware that the 'standard' rooms have no view at all. Moreover, they open to an internal courtyard (brick), cutting out any breeze. The very perfumed detergent used for the bedding may cause problems if you have allergies. The breakfast is very basic, even by Cap Verde standards. The neighbourhood does not seem to be safe at all after dark. Overall, this hotel seems to oversell itself on the website.

Mahtavat maisemat ja hyvää palvelua
Todella viihtyisä ja kiva paikka! Sijaitsee korkealla kävelymatkan päässä keskustasta. Kävely alas keskustaan sujui hyvin ja myöhemmin illalla pimeän tultua taksin sai kätevästi tuomaan takaisin. Palvelu oli hyvää ja aamupala täyttävä. Huoneet olivat siistit ja viihtyisät. Osa huoneista on aika ahtaita mutta yläkerrassa huoneemme oli jopa ylellisen tilava! Aivan mahtavat näkymät merelle ja kaupunkiin terassilta. Pyykin peseminen ei onnistunut vesipulan takia.
