Booked a suite but initially offered a family room. Took a bit of persuasion to get it changed, then room was nothing like ones on web pictures - much more old fashioned although clean, spacious & comfortable. Small but new bathrooms. Paintwork everywhere else rather tired - lot of chips, needing redecorating. Staff helpful although limited in options they could offer to eal with room issues.

Interior of the hotel does not match the grand impression of the exterior. Needs new carpet and a general freshen up to give it a lift. Nevertheless our room and bathroom were very large and both had doors which could be opened to bring fresh air into the rooms. It was perfectly adequate for our 1 night stay in Nice and well located between the station and the seafront/restaurants/shopping streets. My only real gripe is that if you leave your bags at the hotel after you check out, the bags are left in the lobby in front of the reception desk. A receipt for the left bags was not provided, despite asking for one, and there is apparently no room where the bags can be locked away. I think it is reasonable value for money.

Overall the staff was very friendly. There was a satisfying variety at the breakfast buffet. The area is quiet, no noise from traffic or other business.Regarding the size of the room I guess we were lucky to stay in a kind of studio, which was a nice large room with extra table and couch. A glance at anther room when the cleaning staff was working showed that most rooms were much smaller but also ok.

Outside was charming, inside was shabby. A shame, as the staff were fine and the breakfast ample. The whole hotel seemed partly renovated - the bathrooms had new fittings and our room was newly double-glazed, but the balcony tiles, the carpet, the lobby fitout, the breakfast room, and the room furniture was old and/or cheap and rather tired. We liked the aspect of our balcony, but the room was small. We didn't use the spa facilities in the hotel "Splendid' next door as it didn't look appealing when we walked past. Staff uniforms (at the front desk and breakfast room) could be consistent and cleaner and smarter. Location is OK, only a 5-10 minute walk to the Promenade, but a shabby street with lots of works on it. The photos are misleading - you get the impression of a recently renovated 'period' hotel, but you get more 'Fawlty Towers' than anything. That is not a criticism of the staff; just the hotel fitout.

Hotel Gounod suited our stay perfectly. We were registered with the minimum of fuss and took advantge of the safe facility offered by reception, which was free. The room was pleasantly furnished and comfortable. The only drawback of the accommodation was that the shower head in the bathroom was loose and there was no shower screen. Breakfast at 11 euros was good value in that it offered nice fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereal and bread which is all we look for on holiday (boiled eggs and cold meat was also available). The location is very central so that it is possible to walk to the promenade in 5 minutes, the rail station in 10 and the bus station in 15 minutes. Many of the west bound buses pass close to the hotel on Victor Hugo. On our last morning, because we had a couple of minutes wait for a breakfast table, the receptionist cancelled it from our bill.

What a perfect location - close to the train station and close to major attractions and/or busses. The partnership between Hotel Gounod and Splendid Hotel gave us access to the rooftop pool/bar and that was a welcome nightly oasis. The staff at Hotel Gounod couldn't have been nicer or more responsive. We were thrilled with his hotel. Venere got us a great room rate as well. I want to go back!

We stayed in Nice for 3 nights. Our room was very spacious, though the decor is a bit old. The gentleman at the front desk during the day was very helpful. At night, the front desk staff was less helpful. The location was good - easy to get to from the train station and a pretty quick walk down to the beach. Breakfast was not included in our room, but the room had a mini fridge to keep food, which was nice. Internet access was not free, but was pretty affordable. Overall, a great stay.

Our first visit to Nice and Hotel Gounod provided good quality in a good area. The quality of the staff was mixed, from icy cold (and poor ambassadors for the hotel and the city) to friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was adequate if a bit overpriced. Distance from old Nice about 25 min walk, about 10 mins walk from beach, and about eight mins walk from train station. Better restaurants are about twnrt mins away. Will return to Nice and probably to Hotel Gounod, although will research others. Room was very, very large for the price, and very clean.

For my second stay at the Gounod, I was given a lovely room, #508, with a balcony, on the top floor. The bedroom was nicely furnished, and the bathroom was fantastic, with plenty of places to put my stuff, good lighting, heated towel rail, and not only a shower with a door but also a full bathtub. Only one drawback: the shower cubicle had no shelf for soap tablet or shampoo bottle. The room overlooked the street, but with the window shut there was very little noise, just a some vibration from the occasional heavy vehicle. The heating/air-conditioning worked well and was quiet. The buffet breakfast was good, and all the hotel employees I met were extremely pleasant and helpful. The part of rue Gounod near the Train Station looks a bit run down, but the further south you go the better it gets, and the area around the hotel is fine. There are plenty of small shops and restaurants nearby, and it's an easy walk to the promenade, the pedestrian shopping area, the train station, the bus station, and Old Nice. I did not try the restaurant in the Hotel Splendid next door, but two other guests told me it was excellent. The airport shuttle bus ticket costs 4 euros one way, but single journeys on the local Nice buses cost only 1 euro per ticket.

I found the hotel easily, following the instructions on the printout. My first stay at the Gounod was for one night only, and I was pleasantly surprised that I was given such a nice room, no.405, with a spacious bedroom and double bed, and very good soundproofing. The bathroom was a bit small, however, and the shower cubicle had no splash barrier so I had to be extra careful when showering to avoid spraying water all over the place. The buffet breakfast was excellent, with plenty of choices.

Great hotel which let's you have use of it's sister hotel's roof top pool. (mind you it's not that big). Older building kept up very well with breakfast service. Breakfast does include eggs and meats unlike some other breakfasts offered at other places. Only some 5 blocks away from the beach and from the market and maybe a 20 min walk to the old Nice. I did enjoy the hotel stay and would recommend it 100% but on our return trip we booked with another hotel for much cheaper and we found that the Gounod was a little big above average in pricing compared to similar hotels. I just wanted to try another hotel to compare. Service was great and rooms are kept clean so there's no complaints about that. We paid 150 Euro which I found out after was a bit high in comparison to some other places which I found later.

The bedroom was nice with very big with large window/patio door. The TV was old and small, the bathroom needs to be updated. The area just to the North of the hotel is pretty dirty and sketchy. The breakfasts are not bad; they serve american style coffee. The walk to the beach was fairly short, so as long as you avoid the area between the hoel and the train station you are OK.

Admittedly, we only stayed for one night, but when we arrived and wanted to pay as we had to leave early the next morning, the man on the desk couldn't work the card machine, so we had to leave a deposit and go and get cash out of the machine down the road. The room was verging on box-like and absolutely stank of cigarette smoke. The shower was hanging out of the wall and sprayed all over the floor and the fabric mat, leaving the entire floor soggy and unpleasant. There was no plug in the sink. We were on the ground floor right next to the lift which kept us awake for most of the night and, all in all, it was not a nice end to an otherwise wonderful holiday. Having to pay 140 euros for the pleasure was not funny. I have stayed in much cheaper hotels which have been considerably better.

They were patient and accommodating with our questions, and they truly were very helpful with the fine details of tourism. If I may suggest making parking more accessible. IT is quite a challenge to maneuver the cars into the spaces because of the tree, which stands in the middle of the lot.

In English, a suite has a different meaning from a two bedroomed room, so we were a bit misled. This is a quirky place; could be a very art nouveau/boutique hotel; instead it just makes one smile fondly at wonky light fittings, kitsch pictures, sombre wood, alloy wood screws in brass carpet strips etc. All are quite adequate, but not quite the full attention to detail to finishes. Cheese at breakfast is superb; coffee is fine too;bread was a bit tough and scrambled eggs seemed to be left by others. Pastries and ham were tasty too. Guests all seemed nice people having a nice time; apart from 2 loud Americans; why do they bray so much , including in the street or in restaurants? No other nationality made so much noise in Nice

My husband and I are very picky about clean (odor free) hotel rooms, plus budget concsious. We were orignally going to be economical and stay in a cheaper hotel by the train station for just 2 nights - I am so glad I changed to this hotel. DO not stay at any of the hotels near the train station! If you are willing to spend 40 or 50 bucks more but get an even better place for your money to stay - this hotel is it! The major plus for this hotel was the location from the beach (very short walk) and clean updated (modern) beautiful bathrooms! The receptionist was very hospitable and helpful. The people in Europe in general a little curt or abrupt (by American standards), but don't let that skew your view on life there. There is nothing really to see or do by the train station and this hotel was about a 10-12 euro cab ride (depending on luggage and whether the cab guy is willing to go the short distance) from the train station. Considering the price, this was a great place to stay - will definitely recommend it and would go stay there again!

We had a delightful stay at the Hotel Gounod. We had a corner room with windows on two sides and a palm tree right outside our window. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We had a car and the parking lot next to the hotel was very convenient for in and out driving. The breakfast buffet was delicious and we looked forward to it each morning. Although we didn't mind walking for the most part, you should be aware that the hotel is five long blocks from the beach promenade. If we're ever in Nice again, we will definitely return to the Hotel Gounod. It was that nice.

Located close to train station within easy walking distance with bags. Close to waterfront. Staff were very helpful. Limited parking but they share with the hotel next door when full.

Our train was delayed therefore we were late in arriving. After a somewhat surley taxi ride we were greeted by Eddie who went above and beyond to welcome us and make sure we were comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised to find ourselves upgraded at no additional charge. All the staff were able to answer our questions and were most helpful in our visit to Nice. Thank you all! jc welsh

The room we had in the hotel was excellent, spacious and nicely decorated. The only disadvantage of the hotel is the place where breakfast is served, which is a bit small and uncomfortable. All other facilities were as described in the web page and our stay there was excellent.

Very nice Hotel and central for shops and beach. Sister Hotel 'Splendid' had a pool and hot tub which can be used by guests of the 'Gounod'. Would definitely stay at this hotel again.
