The Hotel Gounod was the right choice for the right price. Our stay at the end of November was the off-season, thus making it very affordable for the location a 4 blocks from the sea. Keep in mind that you get what you pay for, so keep your expectations reasonable as you likely look for this hotel in search of a mid-priced option.
We had a 2 bedroom suite to accommodate our family of 4, something that seemed to be particularly challenging in Nice. Room 209 had 4 single beds in 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and small kitchenette (mini-fridge, sink and stove-top). The lobby and breakfast room were welcoming, but the guest rooms showed their age with considerable wear and tear. Our room on the Rue Gounoud was not as quiet as some other reviews mentioned, but others may have been off the street. On-site parking was a bonus, at an additiona charge, but the street parking was extremely limited. The hotel is within walking distance to the train station.
The breakfast was OK, standard offering of cereals, yogurt, cheese, ham & salami, canned fruit, and a choice of croissant or another pastry. Frankly, it was not too much and not exactly memorable. Staff was helpful upon request and provided solid recommendations for dinners that met our needs very well. Interestingly enough, they did not recommend their supposedly more luxurious sister hotel, The Splendid, and I understand why. The Splendid hotel restaurant was OK, but nothing special aside from a panoramic view.
