Old town & Port of Nice

Welcome to the Gounod hotel, which welcomes you in the heart of Nice, in the chic Musicians district. Most of its streets bear the names of great classical musicians, including the famous Charles Gounod, renowned for his operas. This district also stands out for its Belle-Époque architecture, but also Art Nouveau and Art Deco, which can be found in the decoration of our hotel.

Still on the architectural side, the center of Nice is home to baroque churches, notably the Sainte-Réparate cathedral. The curious can also visit the Palais Lascaris, the only palace in Old Nice open to visitors. The city center conceals other wonders, such as the opera, the archaeological crypt, Place Rossetti and its terraces, or Place Saint-François and its fish market. Let’s not forget all these picturesque streets with a Provençal atmosphere. Booking a room at the Gounod hotel, near the port, will also allow you to admire the superb yachts and fishing boats that anchor in Nice.

You can also enjoy a refreshing walk along the Promenade des Anglais, located a 15-minute walk from the Gounod hotel. Staying there finally allows you to discover the key places in this area: the quays, the War Memorial, Place Île de Beauté and the Notre-Dame du Port church.
