    Yes I've lived in a 2 storey landed previously. The 2nd floor is way hotter than the ground floor, especially in the afternoons but also at night. Walking up the stairs there is a considerable change in temperature. We installed an aircon on the ground floor and since hot air rises and cool air sinks, there was no need for any partition/doors btw the ground and 2nd floor.

    Not sure about condos. I've never lived in a penthouse. But it would make sense that the penthouse is the hottest. There is direct sunlight onto the roof which will radiate through into the house.
