The two of us booked a last minute spontaneous holiday to Nice through the British Airways website, such good value booking in that way (cost us less than £250 each all in for flights and three nights' stay). The hotel is easy to find - if you get the 98 express (€6) from the airport, you can walk from the Cathedral stop or get the tram. We walked because we're penniless students, but I guess it depends how heavy your bag is/how hot it is.
The hotel is about a 20 minute stroll to the beach - we tended to go through the old town because it's so pretty - and about 5 from the Garibaldi square. We were glad we weren't in one of those massive hotels on the waterfront because they look a bit heartless and noisy. Other reviews talk about the traffic noise - for us it really wasn't a problem. The curtains are good and thick and the air-con is amazingly quiet. We walked everywhere but the tram is superb and only a Euro a go.
We opted out of breakfast because it seems expensive at €12 a head and there are some amazing bakeries down the road you can use. Didn't watch the TV, did use the free wifi which was excellent and fast. Room was always clean and we were provided with fresh towels every day. Polite helpful staff on reception.
Would use this hotel again and highly recommend to impulsive romantic travellers on a budget.
