We went to Nice with the intention of using it as a base to see other towns on the coast so the location of the Ibis next to the main train station was ideal, it wasn't the nicest area at night but we were out until 11pm and didn't feel too unsafe. It is about a 15 minutes walk to the promenade. The airport bus stopped next to the hotel, it runs every 30 mins and costs 6 euros each way.
The hotel rooms are very small, especially the bathroom but we managed as we only used the room to sleep and shower. The room was clean and the bed very comfy. The breakfast was satisfactory, no hot food but a choice of four cereals, fresh fruit, yogurts, ham and cheese, fresh crusty breads, croissants, cakes and pancakes. There is a hotel bar which sells snacks and a cafe/restaurant with a limited menu, we ate out, there are places to eat around 10 mins walk away.
We would recommend travelling by train up the coast, fares are reasonable and if you book to the furthest destination you can break your journey, e.g. you can book to Monaco/Monte Carlo and stop off at Eze, we did the path walk up to the medieval town, quite difficult but worth it for the views. The next day we visited Cannes and stopped off at Antibes.
