Air conditioning in hotel rooms

We've booked Hotel Mayet for our 4 night stay at the very start of September this year and I am now starting to wonder if we need to look for somewhere with a/c. We were in Milan over the same period 2 years ago and had to move hotels (losing money we had paid upfront) because the heat was unbearable.

Anyone any opinions?

Early September could still be fairly warm, and a/c is a good idea. Not being able to sleep at night because of the heat (and opening the windows lets in noise) is not conducive to a happy stay.

I was in Paris during a heat wave last week, and I can't imagine how I would have survived without AC. You can't cool off the streets, the metro tends to be stifling, and it's even hot in restaurants, so I think it's important to have a cool room to return to at night.

Thanks for the replies. I really like the look of the Mayet, but, they have availability (and a/c!!) at the Hotel Monge which is roughly the same price bracket.

I have a decision to make now!!

Again I want to emphasize how impt. I think a/c is if there's a chance that it may be hot when you're there. It depends on how the nights are at that time.

I would get ac.

First, you are most likely not used to excessive heat( like myself, where I come from too hot is 25 or 30 ( celsius!) When I was in Paris last August and first week in Sept , it was hotter then that, I would have perished without ac.

Second, I found that I am not able to sleep with street noise, coming from the suburbs , I just am not used to 6 am street cleaners, so having my window closed was important( the place we stayed had double windows that very effectively blocked noise) .

I realize many Parisians do not have ac. but, it is what one is used to , people from certain places can handle heat better then others.
