As others have explained, the Epic Sana is an expensive hotel in an expensive city. That said, it is an international standard business hotel with comfortable rooms with nice amenities. The gym had the same equipment as the Virgin Active Classic I was a member of in South Africa - in other words, top end. The pricing in the restaurants... More

The Sana sets a new standard for quality service in Luanda. You cannot find another hotel like this in this town. Building is great; incredible spa; a gym with the best treadmills money can buy (techno gym); good hotel restaurants. Now, the thing you cannot forget is that this is Luanda and or this kind of money you get much... More

This Hotel offers you most of the amenities you would expect. Rooms are clean, had a King size bed which was comfortable. Good fast working internet. No business center though, if you need to print, you have to bring it to the front desk on a memory stick, and they will print it for you. Many staff has limited English... More

If you hve been to a five star hotel elsewhere you will not feel like you are in a five star facility. But by Angolan standards this is indeed a class above the rest, though you could easily stay at a cheaper hotel right across the street with almost similar or better standards. Be prepared to meet - more often... More

Me and my team we stayed at the hotel over 2 weeks. Before I go to my review I must say that my rating is not influenced by prices which are in general ridiculous in Luanda. According to the information of our local management this is the best hotel you can get in Luanda. Hotel is obviously mostly focused on... More

I am not going to complain about the price as Angola is an expensive place. Nor am I going to comment on it's 5 star rating in comparison with other 5 star hotels outside of Angola. What I will comment on is the speed of service and service levels in general. The front desk check in was extremely slow (20... More

This review is a tough one, because of the bad experiences in a nice environment, I'll try to differentiate well. First a little about Luanda: this was my first visit, and unfortunately there are 2 main "tags" mentioned when talking about this city: the traffic, crime and the price level. For the traffic, I honestly don't find it worth than... More

I have been a few times in this hotel in the past 4 years and unfortunately I have been seeing it is declining. Let's start with the pluses: The hotel is in a very central part of Luanda and most of all it is safe. Which is still paramount in Luanda. Nice swimmingpool and various rstaurants. The breakfast buffet is... More

Luanda (and Angola in the greater sense) is highly inflated from a cost perspective, but this hotel is a fine establishment in a crime-riddled city. The rooms were very comfortable and the shower was quite refreshing. My colleagues and I often enjoyed beers into the night on the terrace restaurant/bar on the second floor. The fitness facility is excellent and... More
