Bus from Hotel to Nice Airport

We are staying at the Hotel Excelsior while in Nice and will be travelling by FlixBus on Sunday 8-May leaving at 22:00 from Nice Airport Terminal 2 to Genoa bus station arrive at 00:25. From our hotel believe the Nice Gare SNCF is quite close in walking distance. Wondering how would I get to the airport terminal 2 to catch the FlixBus at 22:00?

Bus #99 stops at 21:00 and costs 6 Euro. Bus #98 does not stop at the Gare SNCF. Heard there's also a local bus #23 that is cheaper and also leaves from the Gare SNCF, is this true? What would you recommend?

The #23 will indeed take you from the station to the airport for 1.50€, but the stop is on the Promenade. You simply have to walk through a tunnel under the street and you'll see Terminal 1 in front of you. You can then take the free shuttle bus to Terminal 2.

At the moment, the last #23 bus is scheduled to leave the station at 9:09pm and arrive at the Aéroport / Promenade stop at 21:28pm

Perhaps Uber would be simpler?

So basically there are only 3 options:

1) take bus #99 leave Gare SNCF and costs 6 Euro - what time is the last departure to airport Terminal 2, at 9pm?

2) take local bus #23 for 1.50 Eur leaving Gare SNF at 9:09pm, get off at Airport/Promenade at 9:28pm, walk through tunnel for free shuttle bus to Terminal 2. How often does this shuttle bus run? Would we be able to make it to catch our FlixBus at 22:00 in Terminal 2?

3) Uber - how much is this?

You don't have to walk under a tunnel you simply walk across the pedestrian crossing to Terminal 1. The inter-terminal buses seem to leave very frequently. The 23 bus does not leave from Gare SNCF Nice Ville.

If bus #23 doesn't leave from Gare SNCF Nice Ville, what is the closest bus stop from this SNCF train station as our Hotel Excelsior is close to there?

Can someone advise what is the last departure for bus #99 leaving Gare SNCF towards the airport Terminal 2?

How much is an Uber from the hotel to the airport?

You can walk to Thiers Gambetta and get the 23 bus if you haven't much luggage - timetable here :

I often get the 23 bus from here if I arrive at the station and am travelling back to my apartment in Nice West

We do have 2 pieces of luggage each, think best to just take the #99 bus with last departure leaving SNCF Gare at 9pm, worth 6 Euro than the hassle with the #23 local bus. Thanks everyone for your feedback.

Yes then 99 is a better choice.
