Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My friend and I arrived 24 hours late due to BA flight cancellation. The hotel is a wonderful location, just up the road from the beach and a very short walk to the nearest supermarket (Carrefour). The hotel is about 25 mins travel on the tram from the airport (2 Euro each), then about 10 min walk from the tram station to the hotel. Greeted by a very nice receptionist who spoke good English and was very helpful in showing us where we had to go that evening for the Nice Carnival. Room was very nice, if slightly dated, but looked more rustic than anything. We had asked for a ground floor room through BA's accessibility program due to my friend having a dislocated knee and couldn't walk up many steps so that was helpful. There are about 7 steps up from the main doors to the reception area. The receptionist was good enough to help me with the bags! Shower was amazing!! Beds were nice, we got two, a single and double! Breakfast was good, a good selection of cheese, meats and pastries and a small selection of cooked items. Since we arrived 24 hours late and our flight back was in the evening, we extra (60 Euro) to have a late checkout until 6pm. On that day, unfortunately all the tram stations were closed, so we opted for a nice walk along the Promenade to the airport. Highly recommended if you don't mind waling for an hour!

The location of the hotel was fantastic, 5 minutes walk to the train station and to the tram station (which also takes you to and from the airport), 2 minutes to the promenade. The hotel is surrounded by wonderful streets and lovely restaurants, and is very close to the city centre.
The staff was incredibly lovely and helpful. We booked a room where we found out that the window could not close properly, we mentioned it to the receptionist, just to let them know, we did not have any problem with that. When we came back to the hotel they gave us another key to have a look and we swapped our rooms to another beautiful room with amazing view. The rooms are spacious and very tidy, they all have many amenities.
Nice itself is one of the most beautiful places we have ever been to and we will definitely go back.
Overall our stay at the hotel was an unforgettable experience and we will definitely recommend it to everyone.

We stayed there in July and the rooms are very clean. They are furnished in an inviting and comfortable way. Some rooms have an outdoor balcony, which is a wonderful bonus. Access to the pool next door at the Splendid Hotel, with spectacular views, is another bonus.

The Breakfasts are Very Delicious! They offer scrambled eggs and bacon and a wide variety of fabulous cheeses, fresh fruits, and charcuterie. There are cereals, breads and juices, croissants and cakes, and all kinds of coffee, in a very charming Breakfast room, with a very attentive Breakfast staff.

And the Reception staff are the kindest, especially Eric, Gaelle, Fareed, and others, who are always welcoming, helpful, and totally professional.

I would highly recommend this hotel!

I stayed at the hotel, at room 303, for one week along with my girlfriend. We are the silent kind of people, but we want to warn others.

It turned out at the photos used in their own marketing, except of one photo of the exterior, are from the Splendid Hotel next door. We are not just talking about their shared facilities, like spa, bar, pool and training room, which are all at Splendid, fair enough. In Gounod Hotel’s presentation of their “standard rooms”, you’ll find the same pictures at the Splendid Hotel websites (as of August 2022). Our room at Gounod Hotel was nothing like it. In our home country, this would be deemed as deceptive marketing, which is a punishable act. We have worked in marketing ourselves.

The wear and tear at Hotel Gounod is visible for everyone who wants to see. You see it by the furniture, the wallpaper and even by the paintings on the wall. I didn’t perceive the room as fully clean, but I don’t blame the maids for it. Old carpets, not parquet like in the pictures, are impossible to clean. For my part, the result was a cold cough and runny nose, probably due to house dust mite. There is also visible mold. I have never experienced anything like this in a hotel before.
Gounod Hotel should downgrade itself from three to two stars.

The hotel management may answer that access to the facilities at the four stars Splendid Hotel is a kind of service unusual to a three star hotel. But honestly, if my buddy next door runs a gourmet restaurant, and I offer samples from his menu to my customers, that wouldn’t make my sausage stand a gourmet restaurant too.

Some of the receptionists were friendly and helpful, and thank you for that, while others were, in lack of better words, rude or ignorant. A person who can’t answer a polite question about the opening times of the breakfast (nobody had told us when we arrived in the first place), without putting up a condescending face, shouldn’t work at the front desk. Those receptionists who care for their guests, shouldn’t be dragged down by those who don’t.

The breakfast is perhaps OK by continental European standards. Northern Europeans would have expected some more options of cold cuts and spreads, at least.

The best things to say about the hotel is the location, a short walk from the beach and from the nearest subway station, and the effective and silent air conditioner. We also had a balcony, which we appreciated as a retreat.

Despite these traits, we wouldn’t recommend this hotel. There are plenty of others.

Bonjour Thanks a lot for your comments, and I am very sorry about these difficulties for which I can only apologize However it is clearly indicated on our website that the panoramic pool and jacuzzi as well as sauna and fitness are in our sister hotel the Splendid just next door; and indeed it is a bonus for a client as these facilities do not often exist in a 3 stars property Again I apologize for these unusual difficulties which we shall endeavour to correct immediately, and will forward the same answer to the other occupant of your room Have a splendid day michel

We recently had a 3night stay here but our experience was spoilt by the bad smell in the room. The cleaning staff informed us the previous occupant had brought in a cat which explained the dreadful odour of cat urine. We told reception staff who arranged for the room to be cleaned however they could not get rid of the smell and I had to buy air freshener. We were not offered another room but the 9 euros we paid for room tax was returned to us to cover cost of air freshener. Reception staff, Gaëlle became irate when we told her we weren’t happy and said it wasn’t her responsibility to check the room. It was unhygienic to sleep in a bedroom that smelt of cat urine and this spoilt our experience. There was no response when I emailed hotel management. Very disappointing.

We booked in February and we could not go because of coronavirus. They told us that they could reserve the room for one year. Then, when we went there, they made us pay the double without telling it in advance.
This is just to say that making money on this coronavirus situation is something very sad.
The room was fine.

Hotel Gounod is a charming hotel with very friendly staff – especially the receptionist. The hotel is conveniantly located with about 500 metres to the beach, the city centre, and the railway station. It offers good rooms and a substantional breakfast. Pool facilities are available in the neighbouring hotel. In other words, a very good base for a Nice holiday!

Our 2nd time at the Gounod which we discovered a few yrs ago. Great location, station 10 mins, promenade 10 mins, Nice Etoile shopping centre 10 mins walk. Clean, comfy with a very caring & efficient staff...and the key word is 'small'
, so if you aren't keen on.the big crowded hotels, this is a possibility. We love it and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it

We had a wonderful stay at Gounod, mainly because of the very helpful and friendly staff - a huge thanks especially to Julliana and Fareed. The Hotel is perfectly located - in a quiet space close to all the shopping, dining and the beaches. We also visited the sister hotel's Splendid rooftop pool - which had an awesome view. And would recommend all guests to visit at least once.

Amazing small friendly hotel. Good location just 2 blocks up from promenade. Carrefour and patisserie just round the corner. Room on 3rd floor with balcony. Very quiet. Super comfortable bed. Room needs updating but has lots of character. Very friendly staff. Will return. Splendid hotel pool was not heated. Good service tho.
