4/10 Fair

Overall it was not a relaxing stay!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We booked standard room on free cancellation option which meant we could cancel anytime. 2 days later the price of the room had gone down. The original price that i paid now matched the superior sea view room. I emailed preluna and asked if they will change my room for the superior sea view room or i will cancel and rebook with new price. Preluna said they were unable to give the superior sea view room but will offer us the sea view room instead. It was not ideal because we paid the price of superior room and had option to cancel for free. But, we agreed to go ahead with the standard sea view room to avoid hassle but requested for a double bed When we arrived at hotel we were disappointed they gave us twin beds. We complained and housekeeping staff came with thin mattress topper and made the twin beds into double. Also it looked like the room was not prepped for us because: 1) only ONE towel 2) no soaps at all including no soap in dispenser 3) no bin bags in bins 4) bath tub tap not running 5)Toilet was stained very badly Every few mins we had to call reception to ask for things to be sorted and spent most of 1st day waiting for staff to come sort things when We just wanted to rest. The mattress and pillows were uncomfortable. We did not get good sleep and my hubby got neckache. Pillows were changed few times but all their pillows were bad. They advertise room as sound proof but it is not! Lots of noise pollution! Lift broke on our 1st day and we were on 10th floor.

8/10 Very good

More like a 3 star hotel with 4 star staff.
Location was good. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast selection is excellent, sometimes felt like eating in a Greasy Spoon cafe. Overall cleanliness of the hotel was disappointing. Avoid the in-house Italian restaurant, rubbish food served by waiters that think they're doing you a favour by serving you. Would I return?, probably.

Pleasant Stay
This is a nice hotel and in a fantastic location in Sliema. It is on all the main bus routes and walking distance to Sliema Ferries for trip to Valletta. The staff were very pleasant and welcoming. Our room was a suite in Perluna Towers which had two sea view balconies, a living room and a small dining area with sink and fridge as well as a big bedroom. Due to COVID you call reception to request room servicing but having done it once we then hit our bins emptied and fresh towels everyday. Free wifi is provided but does drop out a lot. Would certainly use again.

Consider this hotel for your holiday
Hotel very clean, staff gieven full credit for their appearance and helpfulness. Receptionists were first class in their duties, pleasant and resourceful. Beach club across the road an unexpected bonus. breakfasts excellent and though we only had one evening dinner, we could not fault it. One criticism is the restaurant at evening time lacks ambience, dim the lights, add table cloths to the tables with a candle on each table. Doesn't have to be all the tables, experience would denote how many,making a massive improvement and maybe more customers. This was why we only dined there one night. Hotel in easy reach of bars, bistros and restaurants. bus stop for local travel and tour buses just across the road.
