Munich Hotel in July AC or not needed?

Plan to stay in Munich post RS Eastern Europe trip for 3 nights before flying home. I have reviewed several hotel reviews for may places on these forums but most of the recommended hotels don't have AC. I am not sure if we need AC in Munich but we will be there in the first week of July. Plan to stay near the train station as we arrive from Lake Bled and plan to hoof it like we will have been doing for the last 2 weeks. Just looking for input from follow travelers who have stayed in Munich the last couple of summers and have a feel for summer weather.

The hotels I am looking are:
Hotel Metropol
Marc Munchen
Arthotel Munich

In July in Munich I would want AC. You can’t tell what the weather will be now, but it definitely can get warm enough in Munich in July that sleeping without AC is not pleasant.

I agree with Karen. Also, many hotels in Europe don't have window screens, so if it's hot and you don't have AC, there may be a bug problem if you open the windows.

Yes, try to find a hotel with a/c. We were in Munich a few summers ago during a heatwave and our hotel didn't even have a fan.

Another vote for A/C. We were in Munich in early July just two summers ago, and we definitely appreciated having some A/C in our hotel.

It will be quite warm in July in Munich. I stay just a few km out of Munich and I have been plenty warm in June.

We really enjoyed Hotel Uhland near the October fest grounds. It's in a quiet residential area in a historic mansion about 10 minutes from the Marienplatz. They have an amazing include breakfast. And I would definitely want AC in July.

Hotel Torbrau near the the Ubahn Isartor stop has AC. The Platzl nearer to the Marienplatz also has AC. A Less expensive option with AC would be the Motel One near Sendlinger Tor.

Yes, I would get ac. Much of Europe has had very warm summers in recent years. A friend was in central Germany last July when it was really hot and didn’t have ac. He was miserable. We were there the last week in June this year, and stayed at Hotel Metopol. Temps were in the 70s, and we still ran the ac at times. Quiet street, helpful staff, large clean rooms, great bathroom, ac worked wonderfully and the breakfast is amazing. Highly recommend it! If you want a balcony, get a “business” room, just know that the balcony overlooks a courtyard parking area.

Weather-wise in July you can bet Munich will be warm if not down right hot, a broiler. If you're one who counts on having AC or needs it ( I don't), then I would suggest booking a hotel with AC as one of the amenities. Even in June Munich can get pretty warm, ie 80F in your room.

My Pension in Munich sometimes has a fan, sometimes no fan but definitely no AC. After all, it's a 2 star place and, as such , AC is not among the amenities anyway.

Keep in mind that, in general, ventilation will be worse in a hotel/inn than at home. At home I can open windows for cross ventilation, use shades at certain times of day, etc. Also, while I might leave windows open at home at night to keep a room cool, when you are traveling you may not have a screen or you may be on a busy street.

We were there in July 2 years ago and it was very hot and humid. So glad we had AC at Motel One. We are used to not having AC at all, living in Germany, so it has to be really hot for us to suffer. Get a hotel with AC. If you don't need it, fine, but if you do, you will be glad you did.
Motel One has great AC, not that wimpy kind in some hotels.

Germany has been having weeks of really hot weather in the summer for quite a few years now. It is unbearable.
