Hotel Gounod Nice offered my family a good place to stay a few blocks from the beach. We rented a suite, which included one room with a queen size bed and one room with two twin beds. The beds were firm, as we found all the beds in the four places we stayed in France. The bathroom was well equipped with a hand-held shower in the tub, a bidet, sink and toilet. It was good size by French standards. Breakfast was included for us, since we stayed three nights. The croissants were fresh, the hot beverages were good, and the other items included cold and hot meats, yogurt, fruit (fresh apples cut and added to canned fruit) and scrambled eggs, served buffet style.
It is located about a ten minute walk from the Nice Ville train station, a twenty minute walk to Old Nice, and a fifteen minute walk to the beach. All the front desk people spoke good English and were polite and helpful.
Their sister hotel next door offers an indoor Jacuzzi and an outdoor, rooftop, "solar heated" pool available to Hotel Gounod guests, but which we did not explore.
If you are looking for an older but well maintained hotel, not in the most "touristy" section of town, which offers good value, try Hotel Gounod.
