“Nice - Gounod Hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We were not disappointed during our 3 nights stay in June. The hotel is certainly well located in Nice. Easy to get around and explore. Room was clean, well appointed, and the AC worked fantastic. Nice sized rooms with all features a business or a tourist traveler would require included Wi-Fi and flat screen TV. The bathroom was clean, but plumbing fixtures are outdated. Parking is not free, but its well worth the money. For the restaurant, the breakfast buffet was included: eggs, cold cuts, cheese, jam, croissants, bread, and cereal. Would I stay here again? Probably yes.

The Gounod hotel located 15 minutes walking from the old town is an old typical french style hotel with very standard rooms - would that justify four stars?!

No, but combining good location - only fem minutes from the central station as well - with the priveligue of being able to use the pool on the roof of the mother hotel Splendid next door, using the on the beach sun beds and having a proper wifi (4 devices per room) makes it four in total.

Breakfast is 11€ but didn't try it. From looks seemed nice though.

Room Tip: Room away from street...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

Rooms were pretty average. Cracked paint and very old feel, bathroom needed a good clean.

Initially My partner and I had a tiny bed and thankfully on the second day the nice lady at front desk let us look at a few different rooms and we got a better option. We got a room With two singles that could be pushed together. This room faced the road and it was very noisy at night, every car, scooter, alarm or people talking you could hear. This new room had a nicer (cleaner) bathroom but was smaller then our original one. We are both tall and our knees had to be on the side of the toilet as it was on such a odd angle. Also There was only a tiny bath in it. There was a detachable shower head but only at knee height, pretty challenging if you want to stand and shower. Let alone wash your hair.

We got a pretty good deal booking well in advance, this place is definitely a pay for what you get. It's location is pretty much equal distance from
The beach as it is to the train station (and same again to tram station) so I guess it's central. However we probably would have liked to be closer to the beach. If we come back to Nice will opt to stay down by the water front.

The hotel was adequate, nothing special. Breakfast was average for 11 euro. Nice fassade though and the room wasn't too bad, if the double bed was a bit small. Great location not too far from the seafront and in a quiet area.

This is my second time staying in this hotel. Last time I stayed solo and stayed in a really lovely room with balcony on 5th floor. This time I stayed with my parents and we had a suite on 5th floor which was great for the 3 of us however our suite this time did not have a balcony, The breakfast was really great in the hotel and set us up for the day, delicious coffees, fresh fruit, pastries, hot eggs and sausages etc.
While I was there I fractured my foot. The hotel staff were extremely helpful with faxing the hospital and airline to arrange my travel plans. Everyone I met in Nice was so helpful when the accident happened. I could not have asked to be in a better hotel at this time. I would recommend the Gounod to anyone going to Nice.

This is really a marvelous place. The cleanliness, amenities and the quality of services they offer here is just amazing. Décor of the building is outstanding and location is perfect for exploring the city. Rooms are wonderful and staff is extremely helpful. Overall it is a very pleasant place to stay in and I would highly recommend it.

we stayed here and had five rooms booked for our party. We were all placed on the same floor which was good and conveiant and meant we could have a good nosey in all the bedrooms which were all very different. Rooms are ok, comfortable beds and clean, if not like the hotel a little dated. Breakfast was ok too, a little squashed and a sort of system which meant you had to ask people to pass you things as it was all at one end of the room. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful but there is no secure luggage area it is left in reception, which is maned. All in all a good hotel and ideal for a short stay.

Room Tip: some rooms have balconys which are smaller, the larger rooms are at the back. Depends on your prefer...
