Hôtel Aston La Scala

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The heading describes the hotel very good. Overall very satisfied with the stay. However, a couple of negatives/improvement suggestions: - room cleaning was not up to standards. I deliberately left some nut crums on the floor and it took 4 days to remove them. And the room was cleaned every day. We had to remove bedsheets ourselves to indicate change. And... if you have the option of half board, don't pay any extra for it at least. The restaurant lacked inspiration (another review). Overall I would recommend this hotel!

A nice and friendly hotel near the Nice harbor and old town. Staff was very service minded and helpful. Me and my traveling partner came late to breakfast, and there was not much left to eat. The whole breakfast era was messy and a bit unclean. Beside fram that we enjoyed our stay.

We always stay at La Scala when in Nice and we will have our stay here on our next trip as well. We had to change rooms one time because the shower was leaking but we got a wonderful new room very quickly and the service is always friendly

We were so pleasantly surprised by how good this hotel was, especially after reading some of the negative reviews on here. I'm happy to say, our stay was faultless. The room was exceptionally comfortable and clean (best night's sleep I've had in ages!) and the overall decor of the hotel is to a very high standard. We had breakfast both days of our stay and it was delicious, though make sure you book the night before if it's not included in your price as you get it cheaper. We used the rooftop terrace and pool for the three days we were there (it was impossible to get a sunbed on the beach at the weekend) and it was perfect. Towels are provided, the beds are comfortable and although the pool is small, it's refreshing for a dip to cool off. Yes, the bar is more expensive than a lot of the bars in Nice, but they provide ice cold water free of charge all day every day, so it was easy to keep hydrated. Staff were exceptionally helpful at all times and the location is perfect for seeing all areas of Nice. Can't fault it! Would definitely recommend to friends and would definitely return.

A second visit to Nice and a second time of staying at the Hotel Aston La Scala. The comfort, location and service provided is stunning and can't wait to go back to Nice and to the Hotel Aston La Scala next year.

Location is great but honestly anywhere in Nice a few blocks from the beach is fine because the town is so small. Easy 20 minute walk to most area as etc. We picked this for our last 2 nights in an 11 night tour from Tuscany through the French Riviera and stayed usually max two nights along the way. All of the places we stayed were great except for here! 1) Checked in, let them know minibar fridge was not working and requested they swap and new one in. Never happened. 2) Obvious leak in our bathroom ceiling dripping water from above into our shower. Was dripping and clearly doing this for some time. 3) AC does not cool room at lowest possible temp setting and highest fan speed. Talked to desk and they said place is full and acknowledged and said they'd check in the AM no follow up and I'm a technical type guy and their chillers have a problem or setting issue for sure! 4) One of the two elevators was taken out of service and never restored when we were there. 5) Close the rooftop pool at 6. Why? 6) They did not refresh the coffee tea in room after room service. 7) Same garbage on floor in hallway for both days. 8). Rooftop bar... order a 🍺... sorry sir all of our kegs are out. What a coincidence? Or... poorly managed? Get it? 😀 Bottom line is most of my reviews on TA are positive. This place touts 4 star but is managed by people that don't get how important this stuff is and while we had a great time in Nice because we rarely hang at the hotel you should look for a better place because we would not return! This is really the only place I can say that for on our multiple trips to France and Italy. There's a reason it was cheap too!

Hotel la Scala is very well situated. A couple of hundred metres from the seafront. Rooms were a reasonable size. The rooftop pool offers an absolutely amazing view over Nice. The pool itself is a little small but relaxing all the same. Breakfast was excellent. Buffet style....lots of choice with proper coffee, patisseries and fabulous orange juice. A huge choice of food on offer. Merci infiniment!!!

Gorgeous room with balcony overlooking all of Nice. The hotel is ideally situated in the centre of the city off Place Messina, within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, shops,the old town and near great transport links. The 7th floor hotel pool/bar area is lovely, even thought the pool itself is tiny. it is probably not the most family friendly hotel in that our junior suite was really a double bed with a dividing door opening onto a separate, very small seating area, consisting of a couch which became a sofa bed. We booked stating the ages of our boys (10 and 12) but the sofa bed was not adequate for them and it was very uncomfortable. There was a needlessly huge bathroom with a shower and separate bath. There was no shower door however so it was difficult to stop the bathroom flooding every time we used shower. The room/suite would have been perfect for a couple with maybe one small child. The breakfasts were good with a decent choice available. Perhaps there could be more fresh fruit on offer, but this is a small quibble. The staff were all very helpful and accommodating. Overall, and apart from the slightly too small room, we had a very positive experience of the hotel.

Upon my early arrival I was welcomed in a warm but professional way. My room wasn't ready yet because of my early arrival so they offered to keep my bags in storage, gave me the Wifi code, and said they would give me a call when the room was ready. This is not a problem because there are so many bars and restaurants nearby so plenty of ways to pass time. The room overlooked the park accross the street and was spacious and clean. Beds were perfect for me and I like that the bathroom is separate from the toilet. There is a public parking close by so no problem parking the car. breakfast was ample and fresh, just don't like the coffee machines that you see more and more of these days. All in all a pleasant stay and would definitely stay here again.

Everything was excellent apart from a humidity spot in the bed room and the fact that the receptionists didn't inform us about the option to book two places at the beach. Amazing building, roof terrace and pool, friendly, kind and efficient staff.
