After a slight hiccup upon arrival and a mix up between the room we should've had, I can only heap praise on Hotel Gonoud.

The hotel itself was a 20 minute journey from Nice airport terminal 1 and cost roughly €16. This is your best bet for a quick and private trip to the hotel or you can catch a shuttle bus that runs every 30 mins for less but time is of the essence.

In terms of location, we were 5 minutes away from Promenade des Anglais and the beachfront, 10 minutes to Avenue Jean Medicin, 15 minutes to Old Town and 20 minutes to Castle View. For us this was perfect as we were away from the hustle and bustle but close enough when we needed to visit these places.

Room was a great size as per pics and had a seperate room for wardrobe as well as an ample seating area with coffee table. Bathroom was a great size and had a seperate bath tub along with a shower and overall was extremely clean and well maintained. Dressing table also came in handy (especially for my partner) and we had a mini fridge to keep food/drinks in. TV with European and UK channels available but rather small given the size of the room however not a big deal. It would have been nice to have a safe in the room which would be my only negative.

Overall I cannot really fault Hotel Gonoud as they accommodated us very well and were on hand when needed. If you are planning to stay in Nice, you have my approval to stay at Hotel Gonoud!

Two separate nights at this hotel at either end of a holiday in France - the first night in a room on the ground floor which certainly needed renovation, then the last night in a fourth floor room which was much better. Overall, comfortable beds, decent bathrooms, functioning air conditioning, and facilities to make a coffee in the room - everything we needed! We didn't notice any particularly annoying noise from the street which our second room faced. Very friendly and helpful people on reception, and the terrace/pool at the Hotel Splendid was great. A good refurb would make this a really stylish little hotel (got the impression a refurb is ongoing)! As it was, seemed reasonable value for high season Nice. Short walk to good restaurants and bars, and to the sea front.

Room tip: Room 410 is a mini-suite with a nice bathroom

Quite spacious room which was clean and cozy. Air conditioning works silently and well. Location is good - everything is walking distance. There are nice restaurants just around the corner and the beach is up to 10 min walk. Good value for money.

Nothing to write home about. Not very friendly and too pricy considering the standard of the rooms. We were also placed in different type of room than we booked. The biggest advantage is the access to the facilities at the adjacent sister hotel - very nice if you don’t mind the typical tourist trap staff attitude.

Gounod has a great location. Basichotel with nothing extra but breakfast was surprisingly good. We had our room facing to the street and made it impossible to sleep... nights were really noisy! Not just a car sounds but large cars, emptying trash every night. So make sure you ask the room facing to the inner court. .

Room tip: Rooms facing to the inner court are quieter
