Overall everything fine

+ brand new hotel
+ nice room
+ nice service people
+ after "escalation" got quickly a new room because of noise (see below)
+ Spa
+ Gym
+ Rooftop Pool and Bar
+ small mall next to the hotel

- window defective
- no reaction to our call that the window is very noisy (very windy outside)
- second call 10 minutes later, still no reaction, but again "We immediately will have a look"
- only after I got back into clothes and went to the counter someone came with me
- expensive breakfast (better book without and take the continental breakfast)
- craftsman worked on our floor in the morning and we woke up because of this (after telling this to the counter person they stopped te morning work)
- metro station means a 10-15 minutes walk

Room Tip: Take a room at the backside (direction lake) and NOT to the street

Just returned from 5 night stay. Hard to find fault.. friendly staff. located at top of hill.. we had a small baby that we had to push up and down the hill... However not something that would put me off choosing this hotel.

Very fresh, just a few months old, hotel with great breakfast buffet. The rooms are not large but has just what you need and the shower is wonderful (when you have accepted that it has a glass wall to the bed). You are greated with a treat of chocolates, and get a new praline each night :-) The Spa is quiet and staff very helpful. We also tried the roomservice and food was good enough and staff very serviceminded. Only negative is that they lack irons and that check out took a long time, probably due to the malfunctioning cardreaders.

This a brand new 5* hotel in Lisbon which has opened to compete with the Four Seasons which is literally just over the road.

Having stayed there it was hard to see why they built these hotels in such a quiet area of Lisbon. I guess their analogy was that rich people don't like to walk!

We originally booked in at another Sana hotel just down the road but when we arrived we were told they had let our rooms go to someone else and upgraded us...we had mixed feelings about this. But they did kindly pay for a taxi to get us to the new hotel which was just around the corner - the Epic Sana Lisboa.

Everything about this hotel was 'epic', including the hill which you must get up before you arrive, thank god they paid for our taxi. Then your arrive in reception and it has all the hallmarks of American hotels - spacious & marble floors, but this one had a chic styling which I guess was true to their Epic brand.

The hotel's rooms were truly incredible; stylish, chic and luxurious. Room decor is modern, minimal and very inoffensive. The bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in in my life although my partner was about 1/2 a km away from me on the other side! Slight exaggeration.

The hotel put a welcome message on the screen which is behind mirrored glass so completely disappears and turns into a mirror when the TV is off...it was very cool.

The shower had different heads and modes like a spa.

The only thing that the room lacked was a decent view....which comes back to location.

We ate in the hotel's restaurant and this proved to be an expensive affair. However the food is 1* Michelin standard and truly amazing. The restaurant lacked atmosphere due to the fact we were the only people in their bar 2 other parties. The staff were very friendly and despite paying through the nose it was a lovely experience.

We also checked out the hotel's spa which was in the basement. It is beautiful, again no expense spared on look, clean, spacious and fully equipped. The gym had a fair amount of kit in too.

I would defiantly recommend this hotel for a luxury business stop over and despite having a rooftop pool / bar it is not somewhere I would go on holiday by any stretch. You can't really walk anywhere and the hill you would have to climb to get back would give you a heart attack if you weren't fit enough...

Overall, a pleasant & appeasing stay which I will not forget.

We'd had a fantastic time travelling up and down the west coast and I wanted to treat my fiancée to a special last night. After much research I came up with this place as it reminded me of a place we stayed in opposite the Guggenheim in Bilbao.

Another fantastic experience in terms of being looked after as if you're the only guest, exactly as it should always be.

Despite arriving early, the concierge was able to acknowledge my request for a "special" room by finding one with a river view and allowing us to check in early. The only real negative is that the views aren't great as there's an odd housing estate building bang opposite the rear. We didn't spend much time looking out of the windows though so it wasn't an issue!

It was a very comfortable room, huge bed with very good pillows, all the gadgets your could ask for and a bath big enough for two to lie side-by-side.

The roof-top pool was fantastic and the day beds were extremely comfortable. The breakfast was also fantastic and generous with every taste catered for.

They really surpassed themselves when I asked for a late checkout (our flight was at 8pm) and they allowed us to keep the room until 5pm! Now that is super service and extremely kind of the concierge on duty.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper floors for a more commanding view.

We chose this hotel because of the swimming pool, but even though it was during the summer season the pool water was absolutely freezing and you couldn't use it... We noticed that we were not the only ones that thought so...
Room was lovely, tea and coffe making fascilities, generous bath tub, air con working, delicious chocolates delivered every evening.
Breakfast was good, but they serve the coffee and tea at the table and we found ourselves waiting a lot for refills...
Location is a little bit outside of the center of Lisbon, ten minute walk to the metro station (and 2-3 stops away) or a 5-6 Euro cab ride to get to the center of town.
Cleanliness: not 5 star...
