... out. We found a luggage storage place near the train station and left our luggage there. We changed our plans and decided to look around the shops instead of doing the hike. Our train was leaving at 3:15am and we didn't want to be rushing back or missing it. I was glad because I did not want to hike at all. I overhead I guy yesterday describe his hike as brutal. I wasn't keen on brutal hike while on holiday. No thank you! So we found a ...
With small errands still to do and wanting to visit the tourism office we set out mid-morning to start ticking things off the list. I was able to get a new passport photo taken so we could finally send our applications off to be renewed and we came across a party supplies store to bit up a few bits to help dress Larz up for my birthday. With a billion tourist brochures in hand we headed back to the campsite to plan our next few days of adventuring, inbetween enjoying ...
... to the hotel. We picked up a baguette, a small round of goat cheese, and some deli meats, plus something to wash it all down with. Not only is the beer and wine quite cheap here, so is bread (the baguette was 0.55 euro) and cheese (about two-thirds the price of back home--the numbers are about half but in euros instead of dollars). We ate a bit, we napped a bit, we packed a bit, and watched the final episode of the final season ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Gounod Nice
Stayed here a couple of times and, although basic, the hotel is clean and tremendously good value. Rooms have BBC 24 news so you can keep up to date and the roof terrace of their sister hotel Splendide has views to die for! Fab restaurants nearby, wonderful French cooking. Try the Barracuda, especially the reasonably priced pate fois gras Mmmm...
Just as the reviews say
Just returned from a four night stay at the Gounod, it was just like all the reviews said an old typically French hotel but very clean and comfortable, with friendly and helpful staff. The buffet breakfast was ideal to start the day. The location was a short walk from the promonade and not too far from the old town. A couple of restaurants to mention which were close to the hotel The Bleu Maison and The Barracuda which are on the street which goes straight down to the promonade from the hotel. If you go to the Barracuda get there early as its always busy.
My (now) wife and I enjoyed a wonderful week at the Hotel Gounod during the last week of March in 2003. Service was exceptionally friendly courteous and efficient. Our room was spacious and the decor was quite charming. I would give the Hotel Gounod 5 stars based upon my experience there which I think I could easily expect on my next visit.
We stayed at the Gounod for 3 nights last August 2003 on our honeymoon after reading several positive reviews. Our room was very large, air conditioned, and clean. The decor was slightly dated, but the Gounod is definitely great value. The front desk was also quite helpful. The location was good - only a few blocks to the beach, shopping and promenade.
I stayed in the Grounod for three nights, based on the reviews I read here. IÂ m pleased. FYI, I'm new to European travels so I have very little for comparison. I stayed in a single with a double bed during the start of Carnaval in mid-February. I agree with the previous reviews, a bit drab in spots, bathroom updated, centrally located, a safe area to walk at night. Also, breakfast was good with lots of fresh rolls, even eggs, staff helpful, room cleaned everyday. Sharing arrangement with the SplendidÂ s pool is worth a look for the 360 roof top view. Besides being a bit drab in spots, the staff was a bit enthusiastic in promoting the restaurant at the Splendid, the Victor Hugo. I found plenty of good dining opportunities around with reasonable prices. I worked pretty hard to find the best rated hotel with the best price, and my research led me here and IÂ m glad to find the reviews were accurate.
Just arrived home after 4 nights at the Gounod. The hotel is in a typical French style, a touch drab and dreary in places, but overall of a reasonable standard. Although facing a narrow internal courtyard so we had no view whatsoever, our room was absolutely massive, with built-in wardrobes, a bathroom and a separate shower room. The room was clean and comfortable, with a very good double bed, a couple of armchairs and a table, nice colour TV with satellite and pay films. The room was cleaned daily, together with fresh towels and bed linen.
Charming, friendly hotel
We stayed at the Gounod for 8 nights in November 2003. It's a charming.
lovely, well-located hotel. The management , maid service, and breakfast buffet were all excellent. We loved our room and felf totally safe and secure there. If we are fornunate enough to be able to return to Nice, we can't imagine staying anywhere else. l
We stayed for 4 nights in August 2003. It was perfect for us - 2 adults and our 2 children (ages 7 and 16). We had what they defined as as suite. It was 2 bedrooms sharing a hall that had a bathroom and small kitchen. It was everything we needed. The bedrooms were a good size.
I concur with Mr Bedfordshire. We also booked a suite (one room with double bed, second room with comfortable sofa bed) in early August 2003. Spacious, lovely bathroom, decent sized fridge too. You are also allowed to use the outdoor swimming pool and jacuzzi at the sister hotel, the Splendid. Its only 3 star and there's no restaurant as such (but a decent breakfast room) or bar, but that does mean you get a good price! Recommended!
I returned from Nice yesterday, 10 February, 2003, leaving behind the sunshine but bringing with me the satisfaction of finding a comfortable, value for money central hotel in Nice. I stayed in a 2 bedroom suite with 2 girl friends (we are in our 30s & 50s). The bedrooms were large and the bathroom wonderful - plenty of well lit mirrors and tons of space. The staff was extremely friendly and efficient. The hotel is modernised but has not lost its "Frenchness". All 3 of us said we would definately stay there again. Our one criticism would be their breakfast coffee (a bit bland) but there was plenty of hot milk to go with it and plenty of fresh rolls etc. The hotel is situated just minutes away from one of the main pedestrian street that is chock-a-block with great restaurants and bars. February is a good time to go as the crowds have not arrived, but there is plenty of atmosphere and and sunshine. Go for the Gounod Hotel!
