“The most delightful Hotel in Nice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2010

Every March, I go to Nice. The weather is normally much better than it's been this time, but the warmth of the welcome for a returning guest, at the charming Hotel Gounod, more than made up for that!
I have stayed at the Hotel Gounod many, many times, and simply wouldn't think of going anywhere else.
The extensive refurbishment programme of the bedrooms keeps them in prime condition. Breakfast is varied. The Managers and staff are always extremely friendly and helpful.
Wi fi in the bedrooms has to be paid for, but is ultra fast.
Nice is a contnual source of pleasure, and the Gounod's position makes everywhere easy to get to.
I simply can't recommend the Hotel Gounod highly enough. And I'm difficult to please!

Gounod is 5 blocks from the train station, sea, and pedestrian zone. Staff is friendly and informative. Breakfast buffet varied with several hot dishes. Room was bright, capacious, and comfortable. Price was extremely fair for the amenities. Guests have access to all the facilites of adjacent Hotel Splendide (pool, fitness room, restaurant). Would recommend hotel for singles, couples, and families.

The Gounod is a charming old style French Hotel with new bathroom suites and within easy walking distance of the airport bus stop, the sea, the rail station and the main shopping street. The staff are most helpful. We had a balcony which was pleasant. Check the breakfast rate because we thought it expensive until we realised it was the rate for 2 people. We would stay there again.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2009

We stayed in the Hotel Gounod for four nights at the end of October and were really delighted with it. Its less than a 7 minute walk from the Promenade Anglais in a quiet and pleasant part of town, and is housed in an early 20th century building with an attractive exterior. We found the staff extremely courteous and helpful, room and bathroom spacious and clean and the bed quite comfortable. The decor is sllightly old fashioned but this didnt take from our overall positive xperience.The only minor quibble was that the water in the bathroom wasnt' particularly hot. . All rooms had a balcony with charming French shutters which helped keep out the light in the early morning. The breakfast, which was included in our room price was very good, offering juices, cereals, a selection of meats and cheeses, scrambled and boiled eggs and several breads and croissantsIn terms of value for money, I reckon this has to be one of the best that Nice has to offer within the 3 star range. I would happiy return in the morning.

Eventhough this hotel is not near the promenade or water, it is very close and offers safe, comfortable and clean accomodations at a VERY affordable rate!

Rene (GM) and all his staff are VERY courteous and will do anything to make your stay perfect. They let us borrow their umbrellas when it rained and even offered to help park our car in their lot (tight spaces).

I would definetely go back to Hotel Gounod, staff is very welcoming and it made a perfect home base while we drove around to Monaco, Cannes & St. Tropez. Ask for restaurant recommendations and they will let you know all of Nice's best spots :) Hope to be back very soon!! Thank you Rene!

The Hotel Gounod offered excellent value for money, friendly staff, clean and comfortable rooms and a very convenient location for all amenities. The breakfasts were first class and we would have no hesitation in recommending the hotel to fellow travellers or returning ourselves, which we hope to do next year.

Disappointed on arrival to learn that the pool and the expected rooftop breakfast area was, in fact, in the sister hotel next door. Nevertheless, the hotel was clean and tidy, staff friendly and enjoyed sitting on the balcony (albeit small) in the evenings.
