“Great Location”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

We stayed here for 8 nights at the end of July and used it as our base to tour round the south of France, great location overlooking the park, across the road from the Old town and a 5 minute walk to the promenade. Hotel very clean and staff welcoming. There was some refurbishment work going on but it did not interfere with our stay. Great hotel and would use again if we ever revisit.

Visited this hotel for the rooftop bar.. so good I went back for a second sunset. Didn't stay at the hotel. The service was wonderful and the drinks selection was perfect. A delightful way to end a day in Nice with exceptional local french wines.

My wife and I booked a last minute deal at Grand Hotel Aston Clarion and really enjoyed out stay. Arriving at the hotel a good 3 hours before out check in time, we were well looked after. We were provided with a room to change and freshen up and also somewhere to leave our bags so that we could go and enjoy the day and not worry about traipsing around town with our bags etc.

We had a room on the 5th floor (524), which had an amazing view looking over the old town and also a view towards the hill with the old castle. The room was well air condition and also it was great that we could leave the in the morning and when we got back at the end of the day it was still nice and cold - perfect after a hot day on the beach :) Another bonus feature of the room was that they have electric blinds that completely shut out the light, which is perfect as there is a lot of light outside.

The roof top bar and pool were lovely as well, after the initial jaw dropping moment of taking in the view we enjoyed lounging by the pool taking watching the world go by below. The food was also amazing and well priced and to be honest was better then most of the restaurants we tried while we were there.

The hotel is ideally located between the old town and the main shopping area with a beautiful park in front of it that has been recently renovated that has a lot of kids activities in it as well as for adults who are kids at heart!!

Room Tip: If you want to use one of the private beaches ask at the reception as they have special prices for t...

My husband & I recently spent 7 nights at the Aston Scala. The hotel is currently being refurbished but it did not really get in our way. We had booked a premium room - which is the newly renovated one. It overlooks the park & had a nice view of nice. The room was clean & comfortable. Nice bed, and the room had an option to put down the blackout blinds which is extremely useful in the summers since the sun is out till late. The location is fabulous with the tram station just across the street, so convenient to get to the station or anywhere else that you would need to go. If you are a family with young kids, this would be the ideal choice, since the park is right opposite and has lots of activities for the kids to do. The breakfast was included with our package and was quite nice, though the same each day. It would be nice if they could change the hot dishes instead of repeating them each day. Overall a good experience and would surely recommend this hotel for its location, comfort & convenience.

I had low expectations of the hotel after reading some of the review, however it turned out to be great. We had a superior room on the sixth floor with a view of the surrounding hills. The room was comfortable, clean, and modern. The rooftop bar was a lovely place for a cup of tea in the morning (and to watch the world cup final!) The hotel is being renovated so there was only one lift and signs of ongoing work, but this wasn't a problem. The only weird thing is that at night the lights were always off on the seventh floor (where the lift stops when you're going up to the rooftop bar) so you have to walk through darkness to reach the stairs to the roof. It seemed that this seventh floor area (which also leads out onto a terrace with tables and chairs) could easily be made more welcoming and pleasant. The location is perfect and the staff polite and helpful. In summary, this was a fantastic hotel for Nice at the price we paid (we found a very good deal online).

Just back from a nine night stay.Hotel very centrally situated. Nice room overlooking park lovely views of Nice. Room basic, good aircon but no luxuries,slippers,bathrobes complementary water. Bottle of water in mini bar €6!!!No tea coffee making facilities.We did not take breakfast option as we felt the €18per person a bit excessive but everything is in Nice!!!!Hotel had a nice rooftop pool and bar. We couldn't understand why the 7th floor bar was closed as it would have been a great asset to the hotel but all public areas in the hotel didn't seem to be utilised at all.Hotel felt a bit run down and needed some care and attention.It could be really nice.I expected more from a 4star hotel as we paid alot.

The location is very central, we have been upgraded to a superior room of design. The room was really nice, it could become completely dark, however the doors of the toilet and shower part are partially in clear glass which ca create some embarrassment if you are sharing the room with someone. Breakfast is until 10.30 but no much choice and average quality. The bar on the roof top is nice to enjoy the view. Swimming pool is ridiculous: too small and with a dance around
