Hotel Aston La Scala
Ranked #51 of 203 Hotels in Nice
Reviewed May 13, 2012

We have just returned from 7 nights in Room 633 of this hotel.Our pleasant room was at the back of the hotel and looked over tiled roofs towards the hills.
The staff were friendly and always helpful. We enjoyed a good selection of food for breakfast but noted that the Breakfast Room did tend to get busy after 9am.
A big plus for this hotel is the bar on the 7th floor which has interesting views and a few outdoor tables. It also serves an Italian Buffet which includes a glass of Champagne for 14 Euros. We thought this good value in this part of Nice. There is also a Restaurant on the ground floor but we did not try this. It is worth checking the opening times of the places I have mentioned.
The outdoor pool area was closed for renovation during our stay.
This hotel is in a perfect position as far as I am concerned. There are bus stops nearby to get to any area you might want to visit and the Tramline will take you close to the main Train Station if you do not want the 15 minute walk past the shops to get there.
This is our 3rd visit to Nice. We stayed in the Port Area previously but any future visits will have to be to the Grand Hotel Aston Clarion. Well done to all the Staff there.

Room Tip: Higher rooms best views and probably quieter.

Dear Guest,

You took the time to share with us your impression about our hotel, its location and services and we would like to thank you for that.

We are very pleased to read all your constructive observations and we will pass on your compliment to our staff being the most important reason of your satisfaction.

Please note that since you last visited us, we have completely renovated the 7 blue bar on the 7th floor. It is now brand new with new furniture and still the very same breathtaking view over looking the Nice Baie des Anges and the old town.

As you mentioned it, we have renovated about 70% of our rooms and all accessible from the superior category up to the Deluxe and the suite.

The classical ones are those not renovated yet and offered as the “budget rooms”.

We hope to welcome you soon again, here in the very center of Nice at the Clarion Grand Hotel Aston and please be assured of our very best attention at each time,


Yours Sincerely,

Enjoyed a 2 night stay. Service and staff very efficient. Only slight issue was soundproofing of windows on right hand side of hotel was poor and voluble neighbours at 5am woke me up.

Dear Guest,

You took the time to share your positive impression about our services and our hotel here at the Clarion Grand Hotel Aston and we would like to thank you for that.

We will pass on your positive impression of our staff attitude and professionalism and we thank you because the most important feeling for them is having accomplished their duty.

Being on one of the most busiest street of Nice may indeed cause some noise disturbance even with sound proved windows on all our renovated bedrooms.

We would recommend that on your next visit, a room facing the back of the hotel is requested in order to reduce as much as possible all source of noise.

We hope to welcome you soon again, here in the very center of Nice at the Clarion Grand Hotel Aston and please be assured of our very best attention at each time,

Yours Sincerely,

Overall my experience ended with a very bad checkout. What happened? I booked he hotel together through the choicehotel clarion websitewith a smoking colleage. We noticed that smoking room was 25% cheaper than a regular other room. Since I am a non-smoker I had to pick the higher rate. When we arived at the hotel, the receptionist told us that the entire hotel was non-smoking for a couple of years allready. The rooms we got were comparible in size and features, so no differences there. On check out I told the receptionist about the issue, and he did nit want to change the rate. After some pointless, and customer unfriendly discussion, I asked for the manager. They had me wait for 10 minutes, than again customer unfriendly discussion and only after I told them that I was not going to pay at all they changed the bill to the lower amount. All in all very bad experience in an otherwise nice and clean hotel. Lesson learnt, book a smoking room at 25% discount and stay in a non-smoking standard room!!

Dear Guest,

First of all, we would like to thank you for taking the time to inform us about your feelings with your recent experience at the Grand Hotel Aston.

Please accept my most sincere apologies for the inconveniences you had to face while checking out and I will make sure that our standards procedures will be understood by the receptionnist..

I can understand your comment that a classical room has been booked and a superior one.

The most important difference between these 2 rooms category is not only the price but essentially the fact that the superior have been completely renovated but not the classical, this also explaining the rate difference.

It is correct that we try to not allow smocking into the rooms and therefore, we do not advertised as smoking allowed hotel, but unfortunately, sometimes, some guests do not pay attention and smoke indeed.

And I also would like to confirm that the room booked on a classical based had been complementary upgrade with no extra cost.

We can not always grant an upgrade at no cost and we feel sorry that this gesture of goodwill has not been appreciated like it should have been in the first place.

We hope to have the pleasure to welcome you again at the Grand Hotel Aston and we sincerely hope that difference will be made between Classical rooms and the renovated ones, categorized as from superior to the Suites.

Please be assured of our very best attention at each time,


Yours Sincerely,

We booked for the Grand Hotel Aston Clarion Nice with a non-refundable booking, but we booked the wrong dates. The staff at the counter understood our position and arranged to accept the voucher with a slight increase in the room rate and this fixed our problem with no fuss. They were so welcoming and gave us a terrific room with the view overlooking the hills behind Nice. They really went out of their way to help us and ensure the momentary stress was behind us. Michael helped me with my bag while my husband parked the car and he was so friendly and genuine, with great advice about which sites to visit.
Galleries Lafayette was around the corner and the Cours Selaya just a few minutes away with its markets full of beautiful flowers, fruits and vegetables.
The hotels is right next to the Tram and a lovely Square, with roses in abundance and a big fountain.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, select a room on 5 or below. There was a small amount of noise on level...

We have stayed at this hotel many many times, this time has been a particular disappointment.

We paid €195 per night for a room facing the fountains on the 5th floor. The windows barely shut out the noise from the loud shouting that comes from a group of homeless people making the area opposite their home. If there's a celebration happening with live music forget any sleep unless you have earplugs.

The Internet is ridiculously slow and barely a signal which is frustrating when you're here on business not pleasure.

The walls & ceilings have huge cracks, the bath was dirty and the towels smelt a little funky.

Breakfast was awful, no clean tables, barely any food and not enough staff to cater for the amount of guests.

This is a great location, however standards have slipped a fair bit so will look for another hotel in the future.

We booked this hotel for our honeymoon and chose a room with a balcony as a special treat. The room was perfect for us, the staff friendly and always helpful and it's a prefect location beside the old town and near the beach.

This was my 5th stay at the Grand Hotel Aston in as many years and all the rooms have been renovated.
The panorama from the top of roof is just fantastic, the sunsets are great, hotel staff very friendly and always willing to help,
Regarding the restaurant, nothing to add....we are in France, and the French Riviera Cuisine is the best.
I highly recommand Grand Hotel Aston.
