EPIC SANA Luanda Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 January 2013

Well sited in city centre.
Used heavily by the various oil companies.
Glitzy foyer and good desk service.

Restaurant & bar facilities are very good

Rooms are quirky. Spotlessly clean but bathroom is open via a glass partition to the rest of the room.This is wierd. Shower s open to rst of bathroom and shoer head only waist height. Water pressure very poor. Difficult to take shower. Room itself very comfortable with wide wide screen HD TV. Pay internet.

Sana is such a refreshing change of the usual musty hotels in Luanda. It's modern but rather expensive though...at least it's clean and representative of the number of stars it asserts which is more than one can say of nearby hotels

Its really an EPIC hotel. Situated right at the heart of Luanda, this 5 Star property is luxury at its best.

Yes its expensive, but if you compare the other hotels in Luanda and the services they offer, this is very much affordable

They also serve an amazing range of dishes for their dinner buffet....yummmy.

Excelent choice to stay in Luanda. The recently opened spa is great, the gym is very good and the rooms are new. Like everything else that appeals to expats in Luanda the hotel is overpriced, the food in the hotel is OK but very, very expensive (50 US for a small Caesar Salad served in the room).

Yes this hotel is expensive, but as Luanda is the most expensive city in the world....you have to expect that.
This was my first trip to Angola, and I was advised to stay here, as you hear a lot of horror stories about this Luanda.
The room was very clean and modern, and quite spacious too. The bathroom was very clean, and I experienced no problems with hot water.
I was on my own in the evenings, so I played it safe and stayed in the hotel, making use of the restaurant there. The buffet had a great choice of food, which varied each day. Be warned though, it is expensive! A 2l bottle of water was around $10, so that gives you some idea of what to expect to pay for the meal in total!!
The reception staff were very efficient, and I had no problems checking out or with payments.
Definitely staying here again in the future,

Simply the best Hotel in Luanda.
Food, service and location are extraordinary. Unfortunately they charge the parking per hour even if you are a guest . Not a good measure because it limits the time one want to be at the Hotel.
Employees from the restaurant were friendly and well trained. The Receptionist, the Portuguese gentleman was not so friendly. Arrogant one!
I had a great time in there

Nice new clean hotel, clean rooms with a reasonable room rate but poor services and overpriced restaurants, way over the already expensive city for cold meals and badly cooked pasta. Hotel Services are poorly managed, I sent shirts for pressing on an "express service" and next day nobody could find them, calling the front desk was no use and trying to speak to a responsible person was almost impossible, it seems everyone hides behind the desk and nobody can make a decision. At the end I was late for my meeting. If you plan on visiting this hotel, do not use the laundry service, bring enough clothes for your trip or ask for an iron to press them yourself; do not use the restaurants or you will be treated with an exorbitant bill for a meal you would pay $15 anywhere else outside Angola, have a driver take you to the good restaurants on the beach. If you like a good glass of wine before going to bed you are in the wrong place, wine selection in the hotel bar is poor, and service takes 20 minutes for a simple drink. Overall a 5 star hotel with a 3 star service.

Room Tip: I have been three times in this hotel, all rooms have a very good unlimited view and are super quiet...
