Gounod Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Rooms pleasant, well kept, clean and comfortable. Tea/coffee making facilities in room. Good breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. Situation very good - turn right out of hotel for 10 min walk to Promenade des Anglais, turn left out of hotel for 10 min walk to main station. Buses on Prom E1.50 along coast to Antibe, Cannes or stop off outside airport, or for E6 direct into airport. Very happy with this hotel.

If you want just a room and no facilities, come here. All we were given was a fridge and a measly hairdryer. There is no tea & coffee facilities, NO POOL (you have to go to the hotel next door, which was closed when we went), the breakfast was too expensive to get everyday as they wanted €14 each, per day. Overall the hotel was average, you got what you paid for. The best thing about staying here was the location, as it was only a 15 minute walk into town and a 5 minute walk to the beach (that is stoney by the way)

This hotel is stunning to look at from the outside. The building has plenty of character and fits in perfectly with the local architecture. It is nicely located away in a quiet neighbourhood away from the hustle of the touristy areas. Walkable to all locations - 10 mins to the train station, 10 mins to the seafront, 10 mins to the old city and Place Masséna. Our room was old fashioned but the bed was comfortable and clean. We must have been placed in one of the older rooms as our bathroom looked nothing like the pictures from other guests on TripAdvisor. The bath/shower did not have a shower curtain so water ended up all over the floor and playing with the taps to get the right water temperature required a lot of patience! One major perk is the ability to use the rooftop pool (closed in the winter months) and bar (called L’EssenCiel) of the Splendid Hotel next door. The bar was really nice and a highlight of our trip! Overall it is a nice hotel with good staff, but if we were to stay again, we’d ask for one of the renovated bathrooms.

Very happy with the location of this hotel in Nice’s Musicians District surrounded by gorgeous architecture and 5 minutes from the train station and the airport bus stop. The hotel is a striking historic building full of character but we were pleased with the modern bathroom in our room and the best hotel wifi ever. All the staff we encountered were friendly and super helpful. The breakfast buffet was very nice - I fancy myself as a bit of a connoisseur of scrambled eggs and these were delicious. We visit Nice regularly and will certainly stay here again. If there had been a kettle in the room and decaf coffee at breakfast I would have given five stars rather than four.

A lovely hotel which is housed in a beautiful historic building. Ideal location near the railway station and the main shopping centers and boutiques, 5 minutes walk to the promenade and the beach ... Spacious rooms with pleasant decor and spacious bathrooms ... there are also large rooms with a bedroom and living room where you can accommodate a family of 4 people ... very good breakfasts ... and of course the friendly staff of the hotel.

Located 2 steps away from Victor Hugo Boulevard and Splendid hotel and SPA, where you can use the SPA and the roof top pool for free. Ceilings are very high, small balcony is cute, very helpful and friendly staff. Definitely coming back Расположен в 2 шагах от бульвара Виктора Гиго, возможность пользоваться СПА и бассейном на крыше в отеле Splendid. Высокие потолки, маленький балкончик, и очень приятный персонал! Хочу обратно;-)

Hotel was booked as a package through easyjet deals and I only chose this deal based on reviews and wasn't disappointed. Great location and price for 3 star. €30 taxi airport transfers and a lovely walk along the prom to to old town where it all happens. Always felt safe and everyone is really nice. Basic hotel but nice. Only thing which could be changed is bathroom could do with a fresh lick of paint that's it. 9/10 very chuffed.

This was a return visit, and not disappointed same great service and helpful staff, good breakfast, nice clean room 2nd floor front of building this was a great value break booking via British Airways including flight we will book again.

Have just returned from another fantastic stay in this lovely hotel. We had an amazing room with balcony overlooking the rooftops of Nice. Clean and comfortable. Lovely friendly staff. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights here and will certainly be returning.

Had the most amazing time away in nice. My boyfriend and I booked a package through easyJet for a short get away for my birthday. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. So polite everytime we left and entered they struck up a conversation. We were staying for two nights. As a bonus guests can use the facilities of their sister hotel. The first night we did not use as their was a power cut but the second day we went over their and it was very relaxing. We got to use their pool and jacuzzi on the rooftop enjoying some tasty cocktails and soaking up the sun. The Weather was amazing so this was a super bonus. The hotel Gounod is a bit outdated and a little dark but the rooms are a great size and we even got two bathrooms. One with a bath and shower/bath and another with a shower.Lot of storage space and comes with a fridge. There was even room for a sofa. We had a very comfortable stay. AirCon/ heating is available if needed. You can even request for a late checkout for an extra cost. Such a great location which was perfectly central to everything. It is located minutes from the beach and about ten mins to the train station which we got a train to Monaco for the day. Great value in money for a three star hotel. There is a small room for breakfast which was pretty basic. The hot drinks machine was not working and they had ran out of apple juice but they were very apologetic. Breakfast included Fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, selection of pastries, breads and jams, selection of cheeses and Yogurts . Perfect location, great value for money, warm and welcoming staff, great facilities what more do you want! Most amazing time away that I’m so sad to leave . Thank you so much :)
