Summer (June to August) is sunny and lovely. Temperatures hover around 30°C (86°F), though the heat is tempered by sea breezes. The Malta International Jazz Festival, held in July, is a crowd-puller.

Autumn (September to November) starts off warm. The average high is 28°C (82°F) in September, but the mercury slowly dips to 17°C (63°F) in Novermber. Autumn is another great time to visit as the weather is pleasant and there are fewer cruise ships off-loading thousands of tourists.

A huge palm-filled atrium, a grand piano in the lounge, a platoon of flunkies, a choice of five excellent restaurants, three bars and 410 bedrooms with every comfort known to man - Brad Pitt liked it so much he offered to buy it, just so that he could extend the bar hours. Located in the prestigious Portomaso waterfront in buzzing st Julian's, this is the place to stay if you want to be close to the heart of the action.

Castille Hotel

Originally built as a home for the influential De Robertis family at the turn of the 16th century, Captain Giacomo De Robertis, a Bolognese, then passed the building on to the Testaferrata family and later to the Marquis Cassar Desain. The building is now a hotel with a sitting room, reading lounges on all floors and a coffee shop which formerly housed the stables. There are also two restaurants, serving local and global cuisine.

Maison La Vallette

This eccentrically-designed self catering luxury town house is situated in the old part of Valletta and dates back to the Knights of Malta. The house offers a large, air-conditioned bedroom with ensuite facilities, living room and separate kitchen. The decor is a mix of Maltese-style baroque and bespoke designer furniture. This is not your standard accommodation but it's memorable and suitably romantic.

Marco Polo Hostel

Bright, colourful and hipster-cool, this hostel in the heart of St Julian also offers bike hire, free Wi-Fi, and the views from its roof top terraces are glorious.

Hotel Juliani

Hotel Juliani is Malta's first boutique hotel, featuring lots of designer style and an excellent restaurant on the premises. The former seafront townhouse offers 44 rooms offering contemporary Med decor. It's also conveniently located for the nightlife and restaurants of St Julian's, on pretty (albeit very busy) Spinola Bay.

Phoenicia Hotel Malta

Built in the 1920s, this hotel is the oldest on the island but it's been carefully restored to retain its classical character. This former palazzo is near the Triton Fountain and features 5-star luxury rooms, beautiful public areas, 3 hectares (7 acres) of manicured grounds and top-class restaurants.
