Very good location and the rest is good enough ...ah and quite enjoyable spa. Now,I am going to give you, the manager, a tip here. Breakfast, it closes at 10:00am, yes? so, for those of us that like a late breakfast ( me arriving 18 minutes average before 10) the working staff is already like in closing business mood kind of bother them. Take my word for that, I was there for 9 nights ending last week. I really did have a very good time at the Preluna and will be back , keep an eye in this small detail.

We stayed here for one night on our way back from Gozo as we had an early flight home. We had a hire car to return to Hertz next door who we discovered have nowhere to drop off cars. The hotel said they only have 6 spaces at 10 Euros a day underground but had no idea if they were available So rule one – don’t drive here. The traffic is appalling. We tried to check in at 4pm and the process seemed really complicated. We were the told our room was not ready and we had to wait 15 minutes in the bar (not a huge hardship!) Once given our key we found the cleaners still in the room. The room was very nice with a balcony and sea view. I believe there are better rooms but this was just fine, the bed was comfortable and bathroom all worked There is a sun terrace on the 13th floor with a Jacuzzi and I believe a swimming pool in the basement but I didn’t go there. Outside as I said, the road is very busy and that’s all night. There are restaurants below which contribute to the noise and there were ‘all night party people’ outside . On the roof is a beautiful penthouse bar with amazing views but could do with a more contemporary approach to it’s decoration. Overall the hotel is fine, Slema is a very busy suburb of Valetta and well situated to get the ferry over as well as a good selections of boat trips. There are loads of familiar shops – Zara, Topshop etc I didn’t get to try the restaurants

My colleague and I stayed here last week for a business trip. We had issues getting irons, with the hotel claiming they were all taken by other guests. After requesting to speak to a manager, then being told the manager was busy, suddenly an iron magically appeared outside my door 10 minutes later. No knock on the door to let me know it was there; I only knew because the guy had loudly thrown it down. I ironed my shirts and left the iron for housekeeping to take the next morning, only to find it in my room again when I got back that night. No wonder they keep running out, if they don't have a process in place to remove them when a guest is finished! Now for the noise - I was on the 12th floor and could hear very loudly the hotel's "live entertainment" that was playing on the 13th floor. On the nights where the entertainment finished, I then had to endure the sound of the tables and chairs being dragged around the floor above mine. This was not peaceful in the slightest. As a side note, I use the term "live entertainment" loosely, as I've never seen a person fake playing the keyboard so badly. For some positives - the bartender on the 13th floor was very friendly, and the rooms were clean.

Spent a week here and it is a very pleasant and friendly hotel. The staff are courteous and efficient. Overall it is a little dated and need modernisation. The bed was comfortable, the food was very good and there was nightly entertainment. It is situated in the heart of Sliema and within easy reach of the ferry to Valetta and there is a regular local bus service which is recommended.

We have recently returned from a holiday in Malta, staying at the Preluna Hotel. The reception staff were very helpful in getting us the rooms that we wanted and getting me connected to the internet. They were always available to help, although very busy with guests coming and going all the time. The hotel is well situated in Sliema, close to bus and ferry services and only 30 minutes away from the airport. Their was a good selection of food, both in the morning at breakfast and in the evening for dinner, with buffet service for both meals. The prices of snacks and drinks were affordable and good value. There was entertainment on most evenings but perhaps there could have been more variety of acts. The swimming pool and spa area were excellent, although a little hard to find, (being in the basement), and not very well signposted. All in all a good value for money holiday.

I stayed in a room, which had an amazing seaview. This actually made the whole stay! :) The hotel is centrally located in Sliema, 5 min walk to the ferries, that take you to Valetta. In front of it you have taxi 24/7 station and all bus stations (the one going to the airport as well). I think Preluna has more than 3 restaurants on its territory: Japanese, Italian and something International + roof bar, The food was very good. The reception was eager to help and actually helped a lot! I'm very thankful for all their support! Some rooms need a little bit of refreshing in terms of wall painting, overall improvement in the bathrooms, etc.

The facilities in the preluna are good I imagine even more so in the summer months as one can enjoy the outdoor aspect but the rooms for a four star hotel are completely old fashioned. Very standard rooms and decoration. The bathroom was old also and towels were an off shade of white. The hairdryer was attached to a drawer in the room and didn’t barely do the job. In my opinion they need to prioritise and update the rooms as it was a huge let down. Location is excellent that has to be said but the rest was mediocre.

I went for the second time to Malta. And a friend of mine recommended this hotel. The hotel facilities are very outdated. During the Check-inn I found the front-office employees Not even trying to be friendly. Even though they are a 4 star hotel they are Not as friendly as they should.

Whilst you will always have enough to eat here they WILL be pushing you for drinks with your meal in the evenings. It's unlikely they will NOT ask you for drinks. So despite having paid for half-board you will be expected to pay again for any drinks int he evening -soft or alcoholic. Most of us would expect a cup of tea or coffee, or even water to be included but not the Preluna .

Excellent way to chill and relax - great facilities really enjoyed my visit - free towels and lovely staff. Pool was really warm and hot tub was great - would recommend to all who stay at the hotel to try the facilities x
