“Excellent hotel,they go the extra mile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

We stayed here for four nights for my girlfriends birthday.

First before we arrived i contacted the hotel in advance to arrange a suprise for my girlfriend. I got a very quick reply and were only happy to help. Laureano helped organise breakfast in bed with a birthday cake and candles etc for the morning after we arrived.

The breakfast in bed was free instead of the additional 16 euro each charge which was really good of him. The cake, candles etc was 25 euro which was ok. My girlfriend loved it.

We arrived very early in the morning due to a delayed flight. Welcomed by reception went up to our room on the 5th floor.

Our room was small as was bathroom but we had a lovely little balcony and table.

The bathroom again was small but everything was new and the power shower had a seat it was great.

There was tv, fridge, desk and lounge chair and ac so everything was covered.

Again Laureano was fantastic when we asked for advice on where to go and how to get there. Which we seemed to ask everyday.

Most of the staff spoke good english,unfortunately neither me or my spanish girlfriend speak french.

Room cleaned everyday very well.

Location was great about 5 min to the beach, 5 mins to all the boutiques. The old town was more like 20 min but the walk is nice. The train station is about 7 min away which we used to bisit monaco and antibes. We definately recommend antibes beautiful little village great food.

So overall the staff were great, location was great, room small but beautiful balcony.

Definately recommended

This is a nice hotel in center of Nice. Short walk to train station.
It is about 500 meters to the beach, and 250 meeters to the shopping area.
Hotelpersonell is very friendly and helpful.
The room was very large, with a large bathroom and 2 small "french balconies" so we could easily hang our towles from the beach to dry.
We could use the pool area on the neighbour hotel, but this was a very small pool with just a few sunbeds. Lots of lounge suites for those who like to sit under protection for the sun.
Breakfast was good with several sorts of bread and cakes, fruits, eggs and chees.

This hotel is just off the Victor Hugo boulevard just under 10 minutes walk from the beach, the centre and the train station. We lost 2 days of our holiday due to strikes in France, but when we arrived, we were given our room early, and it was probably an upgrade - big room, walk-in wardrobe, and both bath and shower. The room had no view being on the inside of the hotel, but this did mean it was very quiet at night, and a very comfortable bed.
The sister Hotel Spendid is only 30 yards away, and Gounod guests have access to the pool area. They have a very clever set of rooftop lounging areas, with a smallish pool and great views over the city, coast and hills.
Friendly and helpful staff. We've visited Nice many times and this hotel is a great combination of location, comfort and value for money - we will certainly return.

The hotel feels like a true French hotel, (so much nicer than one of the chain hotels like Mecure, Ibis etc.), even though the furnishings were a little dated, it can be forgiven.
The staff are friendly, the rooms clean and the breakfast has a good selection with which to feast.
The only SMALL negative, is that it is more inland than a lot of local hotels. But the walk to the Promenade D'Anglais from the hotel, is fascinating and feels like going back in time.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to leave comments about your stay ! I was of course delighted to know you enjoyed it
The building is indeed typical of the local architecture of the beginning of last century, a strange by appealing mixture of italian and british architecture; we bought it in 1972 and do not even know when it was built we know it existed in 1905,and you can find pictures of that era on our Facebook page's timeline
It is indeed not on the seashore, but as you kindly noticed only 420 yards and a pleasant stroll: it is the same distance to the train station with easy and fast connections to Monaco and Cannes.
We all look forward to welcoming you again in the near future; you shall always find our best rates and packages on our office website: Gounod - nice . fr : we have at the moment a 1 euro only full hot buffet breakfast, when you book direct
thanks again and have a splendid evening

This hotel is centrally located but in a quiet street. The staff was very nice and helpful in the reception. The breakfast buffet was great! There were not so many options but everything was delicious.

I read a dozen hotel reviews and decided to book us a room at the hotel Gounod for it´s near suitable near the beach. It was a small independent hotel. The standard room was a bit small and the bed might be too small for over 6, my toes were over the bed.We took the bus 99 from the airport and then stroll south down the rue Gonoud to the hotel. Especially BIG thanks to Laureano, whom provided us directions for bus and train information etc. Villefrance-sur-mer is a MUST to visit. It was our first time to France, definitely not the last.

Room Tip: book room 509 with a great view
