Bus 98 early morning to airport

We have a flight from Nice to Heathrow which leaves at 7:20 AM tomorrow morning. We are staying on Rue du Congres. Should we walk to Av. Félix Faure to catch the 5:27 bus? Would it be better than trying to catch the bus on the Promenade des Anglais? We only have carry on luggage.

Thanks!

If you are concerned about missing the 98 bus or it being too busy, and since you don't have much luggage , you could walk to gambetta /promenade which would also give the option of the number 70 at about 5.40 [going to aeorport/promenade] Which is close walking distance to terminal 1 [use the underpass to cross the road even if the road looks empty ] This is an ordinary bus - 1euro50/person

Thanks for the information.

Will I have time to try bus 98 near the Meridien at 5:25? If we do not have luck we can walk to Gambetta?

Thanks again!

it seems a lot of messing around to me, i would go to gambetta /promenade as that increases the bus options with least hassle.

There aren't any big events on that will make the 98 bus busier than usual

Update:

We waited at the bus stop near the Meridien Hotel and we were picked up about 5:35 AM. No problems getting to the airport on time, bus was only 50% full.

Thanks
