Munich Hotel Schlicker or Hotel Deutsche Eiche or Mercure Munich Altstadt

Have narrowed down to these two. Schlicker is very close to Marienplatz, but Deutsche Eiche a short walk away.
Both have AC which is a must for our early August time in Munich.
Deutsche Eiche seems to cater to a certain group although welcomes everyone, not being part of that group can anyone who has been advise if we will feel uncomfortable there or in the neighbourhood.
Any other recommendations for moderately priced hotels that have AC in the old town area (don't care to be near to train station) are welcome.
Thank you.
edited to add Hotel Mercure Munich Altstadt...its a bit more expensive than the other two but wondering if its worth the difference.

thank you - i have read your warning and it certainly made me pay attention. I have emailed the hotel directly with that very question and he says it depends on the time of the reservation...i.e. Oktoberfest is 30 days, festivals 14 days etc. So if I choose to book there I will definately be paying attention to that particular item...thanks for the heads up.

Sharon, my reservation was for June 22-24, 2023. My reservation was made on Oct 30 and cancelled the same day. I’d be very cautious if you decide to book with them.

I ended up booking my last two nights at Motel One Sendlinger Tor. It’s probably closer than you want to the train station. My first three nights are at Hotel am Markt, May 31-June3. They do not have a/c. (Time is split because I fly in and out of Munich.)

My wife and I have been going to eat at the "Eiche" for eons before our visits to the nearby opera house at Gärtnerplatz. The "Eiche" was the first gay restaurant in Munich, but it was always open to everyone, and in times when homosexuality was still frowned upon, it was a place of lived tolerance. The neighborhood is completely unproblematic, Reichenbachstraße is a normal commercial and pub street, with the Viktualienmarkt at one end and the Gärtnerplatztheater at the other; a perfectly peaceful area. The cuisine is rather simple but solid, and there is a nice roof terrace.

Since I live in the region, I can unfortunately not say anything about the quality of the rooms.

If you're open to looking at another option with a GREAT location near Marienplatz - look at Hotel Platzl - we've stayed there twice before and have it booked again in Dec for the Xmas Markets.

Fully agree. This distric (Glockenbachviertel and Gärtnerplatz) is Munich's nightlife neighborhood for everybody now. A really nice district to stroll around or to drink a coffee and enjoy life.
