“Nice place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

The only bad thing I have to say about this hotel is that they don't give free WIFI, which is pretty much standard in hotels these days.. especially for the price we paid per night. It was in a really good location though. Just 5 minutes away is Promenade des Anglais, the beach, the shopping street Jean-Medicin, and all popular downtown areas. Vieux-Nice is 15 minutes away by foot. The rooms were clean and a decent size...Breakfast isn't included but there are many cheap restaurants all around.. or markets if you want to make your own food (there is a fridge in the room). Nice is a really beautiful place and this is a good place to stay when you're there!

I stayed in Nice at the hotel Gounod for a price which I must admit did the placer justice. with use of the facilities (and I personally used the sporting plage via the hotel - 18 euros a stop) it was a prime location take a right when leaving the hotel and head down the road and you hit the beach.
Excellent restaurants in the local area, the hotel splendid, not everyones cup of tea but, i enjoyed it. but my favourite restaurant was Don Coreleone's which is right around the corner from the hotel on the opposite side of the road to the Splendide

If you feel like relaxing or realise that the beach is not good for too long a stay, plenty of things happen to pique your interest. But the hotel staff are always friendly and welcoming to anyone who visits. I say go for it!

We booked a holiday to nice for a short getaway and mainly booked this hotel to use the pool facilities but we were pleasantly suprised by hotel Gounod

Our room was on the ground floor but was safe, spotless and perfectly in keeping with nice and it's French history

Could not fault the hotel or it's staff - friendly and helpful at any hour

Would definately visit again!

Thank you hotel Gounod for an extremely enjoyable stay :)

I was delighted you enjoyed the hotel and your stay in Nice; it is indeed a big added value for Gounod's clients to be able to enjoy the pool and heated whirlpool bath on top of our next door sister hotel, the Splendid Hotel & Spa
Again thank you very much for your kind comments; we all look forward to welcoming you again

have a splendid evening

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2012

We stayed at Hotel Gounod in two rooms for 7 nights. The building facade and entrance is beautiful. The rooms were rather spacious and charming, though they could need some renovation. One of our rooms had two bathrooms and a sleeping sofa in addition to a double bed, suitable for two adults and a child. The room was quiet facing a small backyard, but had no view. The other room had a lovely french balcony towards the street. The staff was helpful and friendly, especially the lady in the breakfast room. We also appreciated the outdoor swimming pool and roof restaurant at Hotel Splendid. We really enjoyed our stay, and would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony.

This hotel was a good price for what was provided. Standard rooms and breakfast. Good walking distance to the train station and the promenade for those not wanting to take a taxi. Staff was accomodating. Would stay here again.
