We stayed in this hotel for 5 nights beginning of May 2010. The hotel was picked based on a hotel test made by a Norwegian paper in 2009 and also the reviews here on TA. We were 2 girls in our mid 30’s travelling for the first time to Nice. The rate was 130 EUR/night including breakfast, which suited our budget. I cannot remember our room number (think it was 503), but our twin room was on the 5th floor and was really spacious with 2 french balconies facing the back yard. There was no noise what so ever (and I’m a light sleeper), hence we could sleep with the french balcony doors open during the nights. The mini bar was perfect to store water and soft drinks purchased from the supermarkets. The bathroom was nice and clean during our stay and every day they changed to new puffy towels
Breakfast was fine and gave us a good start every morning. They have a selection of brown and white rools, ham, salami, cheese, yoghurt, cornflakes/musli, fruit, pastry, juice, milk, coffee etc.
The different receptionists were always very service minded and keen to help when we asked for recommendations. There is a computer for the guests to use in the lounge next to the front desk. I think you have to pay a fee to use it. The only time we took advantage of the computer was when we printed our boarding passes for the return journey, so the receptionist logged in for us and helped us with the printing without the fee.
We had an spa appointment at the sister hotel Splendid. Not so impressed by the massage treatment we got there, however the spa offer 10 % discount on all Decleor products for guests staying at both Gounod and Splendid. Perfect for someone like me that is addicted to the Decleor products.
The location of the hotel was also great. The hotel is not in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Nice, but everything is walking distance and we walked everywhere.
This is not a modern and fancy hotel. It is a clean and quiet hotel in a good location with helpful staff. To us this was a good 3 star hotel and we hope to revisit Nice and Hotel Gounod soon.
