Misleading photos of Hotel
The photos of the pool and bar are not for the Gounod, they are actually for the Hotel next door. Do not expect these facilities at the Gounod. Very disappointed.

Poor 2.0
Shambles of a stay
Terrible stay. After hours of travelling was told in hotel that there was NO room for us and we had to go to another hotel. This hotel Carlton had no bar, restaurant, pool or even coffee making facilities in room We feel cheated, let down and conned by all at Hotel .com as you told us on Saturday night you would respond, we are still waiting. Our holiday has been ruined by your greed and ineptitude. This matter has to be taken seriously by you as it is not the first time your company had done this

Beware of Cleaners who just walk into your room.😳
The area around 1 metre down from the ceiling was thick of dust. Needs a good vacuuming as does the carpet door strip into the bathroom. Be aware that the cleaners just knock and walk into your room. Nearly caught me with my trousers down on not one but two occasions. Totally unacceptable. The cleaners need to give you time to answer the door. Then spend some time vacuuming the walls to ceiling area.

Weekend break to Nice
Enjoyed our stay here, good location for train station, promenade and town centre. Room clean, modern bathroom, bed and pillows a bit uncomfortable (but they never are as good as your own). Staff on reception friendly and helpful. Would recommend a stay here.

Throughly recommend if staying in Nice
Very good room which made for a comfortable stay. Late check out mean't we could see more of Nice without luggage. Very helpful staff recommended an excellent place to eat. Great location for walking.

Good 6.0
Clean, comfortable, but very dated
It is a hotel that has seen better days, it clearly hasn't been renovated in decades (there is visible cracked plaster and similar throughout the halls, and the carpets, drapes, etc. are quite old). But the hotel was clean, everything worked, so I don't have any real complaints. It was relatively inexpensive too. I would not stay here for a romantic getaway, and I think I would pick something a little more central or closer to water next time -- but if you're just looking for a place to sleep comfortably enough that is clean, and you don't mind the rough edges, I think it's totally fine. That said, I don't think the existing reviews clearly conveyed just how old it is -- so just go in with your eyes open.

Don’t do it. Deceiving photos online.
I’m not sure where the pictures posted on Trip Advisor or were from because the 2 rooms we booked looked NOTHING like the photos. The lobby is relatively the same, but with some creative photo angles. Our air conditioning in the room wasn’t working properly (not central- it was an old unit) and the front desk staff acted like I was a complete idiot when I asked which setting it needed to be on, just to make sure it wasn’t my mess up. The building and furniture was old, dingy, and small. The unfriendly staff put it over the top for us. We went next door to the Splendid (their sister property with a pool and spa) and arranged for a suite there. The Splendid called and checked us out of Gounod and we collected our bags and never looked back. Best decision ever to switch and pay the difference.

Heat problem resolved
Advertised Air Conditioning but there was none in April or May. The person at the desk that night told us it wouldn't be turned on until June, that they had no fans available and that if we opened the windows it would be cool by 1 a.m. Weather was hot (85F) the first night and quite uncomfortable until late in the night when there was a cooldown. The second night the new person at the desk provided us a fan and with the cooldown in the weather everything was great the next two days of our stay and the staff after that first night were great in helping us with anything needed..

Arrogant unhelpful receptionist
Young woman at reception was arrogant and unhelpful. I had to go to next door sister hotel Splendid for help which was explained and sorted in second! I am flying to Nice sometimes on monthly basis and I never experience this. I would NOT stay again in Gounod hotel and wouldn't recommend to my family to stay in this hotel too.
