“Great for Nice”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

Spacious rooms, great location (quiet street Gounod, 10 min to the beach, 10 min to the Railway station Nice Ville), free wifi, friendly and helpful staff, value for money. More for couples and friends, less for families with children.
A bit poor breakfast, no teapot/cups.

We stayed at first at the ground floor in two seperate bedsrooms in spite of that we had a confirming on suite for 4 persones. One of the rooms was very little, and it was not what we expected. After one night, we made an request to move intoo an suite. The staff where very helpfull, and the next day we got a new, much larger and more nice room, 203, and stayed there for the rest of the holiday. We think the hotel is a bit old, and could need a renovation. Everything is working, thats nice. Breakefast is a bit boring, same thing every day, but it seems to be fresh and well tasting. There was only one key for the room, that is not accepteble when we are 4 persones. We think this hotel is a bit overpriced. On many websides, it looks like there is a swimingpool at the hotel, but the pool is at the hotel Splendid in the next building. We would like to make coffe or tea at the room, that was not possible. The Hotel is 550 meters from the promonade and 850meters from the medesin street and 600 meter from the railwaystation.

Room Tip: Avoid room 102, that is very small, max 8 m2.

What a wonderful find in Nice. This hotel was in a very good location midway between the Railway Station and Promenade des Anglais and a short walk away to restaurants and bars. Our room was only small with a tiny balcony but had everything required for a short stay. It had lots of character and the staff were all very welcoming and everything was spotlessly clean. If you like modern sleek hotels this is not for you but if you want a bit of character and a French feel then this a lovely hotel for a holiday in Nice. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony

We came to this hotel because the previous hotel close by.... the night staff shouted at us and made us feel 'not welcome'.

This hotel has a 'scary' elevator and you worry you won't make it down to the lobby.

Breakfast is terrible..... please - go out and have breakfast at La Pirate just down the street and around the corner.

The desk clerks are very kind. WiFi is 'rubbish' and if you needed to rely on it - don't

Our room was very small and didn't meet our expectation in the least.

Room Tip: Request to review rooms before occupation. Don't eat breakfast in this hotel

Hotel is perfectly situated to most of Nice's attractions. Close to many many bars, cafés and restaurants...minutes away from train station if you fancy trip to Cannes or Monaco.
Rooms are spacious and well appointed.
Staff are very helpful and polite.
Worth going back!!!

This is an excellent hotel situated 10 minutes walk from the beach promenade and about 15 minute walk from the railway station. It is an iconic hotel dated but generally in very good condition.
Our room 504 is very comfortable with plenty of room and being on a corner has doors that open onto small balconies on two sides.
The reception staff are friendly and helpful, although two things, when they give you the card to unlock the door to the room it would be helpful if they told you to put the card in, leave it, turn the handle to open the door, and although your iPad says you are connected to their wifi you are not, you still need a complicated sign in and password - would save a couple of trips to reception-what can I say, they are French.
There is no safe in the room. The bathroom is good but the shower needs attention. The hotel also owns The Splendid Hotel, 50m down the road, it is 4 star, has a nice pool and gym you are allowed to use etc.
Men, if you need a haircut suggest you visit Absalon Barbier at 8 rue Meyerbeer, near the corner of rue de France, just down the road, she is really great at cutting hair!
It costs about 13 euros from the train station by taxi and about 30 euros to the airport. The room cost us 511 euros for three nights without breakfast. Can highly recommend this hotel and this room!

Thanks a lot for taking the time to write about your stay with us ! I was delighted to know you enjoyed your stay, and thank you for sharing a tip about a good hairdresser !
In France, for security reasons, we are obliged to identify everyone who connects to the internet: this is so the security forces could trace anyone connecting to pedophile, or terrorist sites; this is why you need a code to connect: it would be much easier for us to simply give you a free access without codes...but we have to abide by the law, and in a trouble world, security is important for all of us
We all look forward to welcoming you again ! you shall always find our best rates on our official website: gounod-nice.fr, with packages and rates often including breakfasts

thanks again and have a splendid evening
