Airport to Hotel


Myself and my husband are travelling to Nice next week, arriving at Terminal 2 around 9.30am. What is the easiest way to get to the Mercure Nice Prom des Anglais on Rue Halevy? I've read about bus 98 but where would we get off and how long would journey take? We also like the idea of using the local bus if it's not too complicated.

Also, can anyone recommend any restaurants near our hotel?

Would appreciate any info. Thanks

The Mercure is our hotel in Nice unless we rent an apartment. You'll find any number of cafés and restaurants near the hotel--just turn right on leaving the lobby. That puts you on the rue Halévy, and about 2 blocks along is a modern café that's good for breakfast (the hotel buffet is very good but also expensive). A block more takes you to the pedestrian rue Masséna; our favorite restaurant there is La Pizza, which has a full menu in addition to the world's best pizza (at least of the thousands we've tasted). Nearby is a sister restaurant, Québec, that is also good, especially for onion soup. There are at least four or five other restaurants in the same block.

Of course, you can always walk over to Vieux Nice; that takes about 10 minutes from the hotel. There we love La Voglia, a contemporary Italian restaurant with excellent food and large portions. Off to the left, in the warren of streets, are still more restaurants and cafés. We like L'Ecurie, which serves Niçois and Italian food. It's at 4, rue du Marché. Be sure to look in the windows of the candy shop across from the restaurant--wonderful displays for special occasions.

If you like seafood, and especially shellfish, head to the Café de Turin, near the modern-art museum. Local friends took us there, and the food was excellent.

I'd get off at the Congres Promenade stop and it takes approx 25 minutes depending on traffic. You can use the 4 euro ticket on local buses and trams for the remainder of the day once you revalidate it by inserting it into the validation machines on the buses and trams
