Just returned from four days in Nice at the Gounod(with a break in the middle-hence two different rooms).All staff very helpful and friendly.The rooms were both comfortable and clean but a little tired.I would return gladly.Nice is very walkable and Hotel Gounod is very well placed.

We stayed for two nights to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and found the Hotel Gounod the perfect place. Recommend catching the 23 bus from terminal 1 (bus-stop 6) at the airport for 1.5 euros to Alsace Lorraine bus-stop which is by a park and then walk along Victor Hugo Boulevard until Rue Gounod and the hotel is 50 metres...

This hotel was a 10 minute walk from where the bus stops that brings you from the airport. And is within easy walking distance of the old town, where there are many restaurants. Some good some not so good. The hotel was very good. And the staff helpful and welcoming. A comfortable large room (511) with a good bathroom, which... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and were very happy with this hotel. It is 3 stars and is probably accurate. The building is traditional and interesting with a good feel to it. The hotel has character and is, I feel, typically French and certainly not anonymous. The reception is small but the welcome is big. The staff are friendly... More

I spent four nights at this hotel over a quick trip to Nice. The hotel met all my needs and was very clean. I was in for a 10 mile run and the breakfast was enough to get me going on the day (and the other days on my trip). The breakfast offering was fruit, cereal, cold meat, bacon and... More

This was my first stay in Nice, I was not sure which area was best for a winter visit, it is easier in summer, you would want a hotel with sea view and a good swimming pool or near a beach. In winter you do not want to be away from the center to avoid long walks. I chose Hotel... More

The Gounod is still a pleasant, quiet hotel with a welcoming and competent staff. Decoratively, it's a bit frayed around the edges and needs some work. Couldn't understand why the over-bath shower didn't have a screen or curtain. While we were there, breakfast had to be taken at the next-door Hotel Splendid: this was fine. Generally, I'd reccommend this hotel... More

We are budget travelers who were interested in a location in walking distance of stations, transportation and sites. Hotel Gounod-Nice far exceeded our expectations. We especially enjoyed our morning breakfast.

Built in an art nouveau building, the hotel has been refurbished and is located on a very quiet street, so no noise outside. Rooms vary in size. In fact, ours was not very spacious. The bathroom had been newly refurbished and was spotless clean, though no amenities, just a gel dispenser in the shower. The bed was very comfortable. The... More
