Comfortable Place to Stay Oct 20, 2010
Hotel Gounod in Nice is a simple but clean hotel. It wouldn't necessarily be my first choice for a return stay, but it wouldn't be my last either. It is pleasant but not outstanding.

The property is not very large, only something like 8 floors, I think. There is a sister property down the street and there one may access the fitness room and pool. Hotel Gounod's elevator is small and went out a couple of times during our stay so we used the stairs quite often (probably quicker anyway depending on which floor one is located). Some rooms appear to have been updated while others are a little more worn. Ours was comfortable but in need of a facelift. The room and bathroom seemed clean.

The concierge is helpful, although it was our impression that the afternoon/evening service was the more outgoing (maybe the morning is busy with check-ins/outs and not able to be quite so accomodating?). The other interaction we had with the waitstaff (housekeeping & breakfast room service) was pleasant.

The breakfast service offered was surprisingly complete. Plenty of options to choose from - eggs, sausages, croissants, cereal, cheeses, etc. While the quality wasn't superb, it was more than acceptable.

Depending on what one is interested in exploring in Nice, the location is possibly one of the more convenient regarding hotels. It's rather central to the old and new. A bus from the airport will drop you at the train station for much cheaper than a cab would cost, and then it's about 4 blocks on foot from there to the hotel. Keep walking down Rue Gounod (past the hotel) (st changes names) towards the coast and you'll reach the Prommenade de Anglais in about 4 blocks.

I would recommend this hotel to others with the caveat that this is a good hotel if one is looking only for a place to lay their head at night and not to hang around and enjoy a relaxing vacation.

Luxury on a budget May 24, 2010
Really great hotel at a fraction of the price one would expect. It took about 10 minutes (20 in heels) to walk from Place Messena, though not very necessary as it was next to many good restaurants anyway. The bed was comfortable, maybe too comfortable as it was tempting to just stay there enveloped by the marshmallowy mattress instead of going out and enjoying the city. The en suite was average-sized, but unfortunately the enormous shower left little room for anything else in the bathroom, so it was a little cramped. The shower itself was very good though with constant hot water and more than ample space. When me and my mother first arrived at about 11 o'clock at night we were greeted by the very friendly receptionist who seemed to have waited up to greet us. Himself and the rest of the staff were extremly courteous, helpful and had very good English. Highly recommended if you're not too bothered about the view, as it was basically just a street!

Casino Ruhl is literally steps away from this accommodation in Nice, as are many of the most important government and commercial districts of the city.

The Bay of Angels, Cours Saleya Market, Musicians Quarters, the Matisse Museum, and Place Massena are just a few of the destinations along the walking path to the ancient, narrow pathways of Old Town. The airport is within 5 miles of the Hotel Gounod Nice, with public transport easily arranged and easy foot touring options from the lobby doors.

Each guestroom at the Hotel Gounod Nice offers room service, valet laundry and dry cleaning, satellite/cable television, telephone privileges, wireless Internet access, and many private balcony and terrace views.
