“Solid business hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2012

Stayed at the Epic Sana in Luanda on a recent business trip based on local recommendations. Though expensive - like most things in Luanda - I thought it was very good. Good rooms, service oriented staff, excellent location, reasonable wifi throughout, reasonable food. I'd definitely stay here again.

I stayed at the Epic Sana during a business trip and I was told that the hotel is the best in Luanda - I have only seen one other hotel but this hotel definitely has it all: nice room, comfortable beds, great bathroom and good food. Pool area is nice too - with comfortable lounge chairs and good towels. Luanda as a city can be quite tiring but the Epic Sana is an oasis to return to.

The best hotel in Angola, with the best food around. Probably you will make more business at the hotel's lobby than all over Angola just from the business men you'll meet here.

- has most, if not all, of the trappings of a five-star hotel
- firm, very comfortable beds
- excellent buffet breakfast
- decent outdoor pool
- not all restaurants and facilities were opened at the time of my stay (Jan '12)
- not all reception staff speak good english, but try to be helpful nonetheless
- didn't have ironing boards, but could provide an iron on request

The hotel is brand spanking new, just opened a month ago (date of review - 16 Dec 2011). The management goes out of their way to make you fell welcomed. There is always someone who speaks English at the reception for those people that can only speak Portuguese in sign language. Clean, five star and an awesome place to spend time in Luanda.
