After a two week driving holiday , needed somewhere to stay for a night in Nice before catching our flight next morning. Ibis Promenade des Anglais fitted the bill as it is close to the airport with plenty of parking - ( avoid the basement car park on the hotel side which is cramped and stinky and use the open/ covered car park across the side road which has the self service trolleys to transfer your luggage as there is no porter service). Room was small but clean, functional with all the right elements ( beds comfortable, table space for computer, wi-fi worked well enough, ).
However there are no restaurants or cafes nearby and aside from breakfast the hotel doesn't provide meals. Not wanting the hassle of driving and then hunting for parking we opted to take the bus down town. The bus stop is just a short walk behind the the hotel along the Boulevard Rene Cassin ( which runs parallel to Promenade des Anglais).Note the bus stop name as you will be dropping off here on the return trip. Take the Bus 10. The journey lasts about 20 minutes and costs €1.50 one way and gets you to Galaries Lafayette near Place Massena. You need to pay the driver to get a ticket, and then validate the ticket by slipping it into one of the ticket validating machines further inside the bus. Had to explain that to another tourist who tried shoving coins into the slot meant for the ticket :) We had a lovely dinner in the old town but missed the 9.00pm and last Bus 10. Had to take the N4 instead which comes round only every 30 mins.
Didn't have any trouble with noise within the hotel or from the main road so we slept well.
