Luggage Storage at the Nice train station
Nope! The Nice train station no longer offers luggage storage or lockers, despite what it says on their website nor the signs at the station pointing to ‘baggage cognsigne‘ …leading to nowhere! Wait in line at the info desk and they will just refer you to wait in another line at the tourist office, which will then refer you to the only hotels in the area that will store non-guest luggage, the Hotel Belle Meuniere +33 4 93 88 66 15 and the Hotel Interlaken, +33 4 93 88 30 15 both about 5 minutes away on rue Durante. To get there, cross the street, go down the staircase, then one block to 21 or 26 Avenue Durante. They will hold your luggage all day for 5€ a bag.
Luggage Storage at the Nice Airport
You can store luggage at the airport in Terminal 2 on the ground floor arrivals area near the fish tank (they closed the luggage storage in Terminal 1). They charge a flat fee of 14€ a bag per day, and are open from 6am until around midnight, but know that the staff runs at slow speed and it is not a fast process so allow plenty of time as they need to verify everything plus scan your bags. One plus is that if you are running late and can’t wait to get your bag back, they have all your info so can get it to you via your airline company.
Luggage Storage in Old Nice
You can park your bag with The Bag Guys, just off Place Rossetti (turn left at Fenocchio ice cream), at 22 rue Centrale in Vieux Nice, for 8€/day per suitcase. Officially they’re open 7 days a week from 10am to 7pm, but in reality Yann is not always there …but he is never far, so you call his cellphone number (posted on the door +33 6 12 49 11 36) and he will come right away. Yann’s English is not great, but certainly sufficient for the subject at hand, and the location is super-convenient if you are staying in a vacation rental apartment in the Old Town.
Luggage Storage in Central Nice
Friend in France offers a very professional luggage storage service at 9 rue Gubernatis (the site of the old Travel Hut), just a few streets inland from the Opera Tram Stop, and are just a couple blocks away from the bus stop where you catch the Airport Express Bus. Their rates per bag are 6€ for a half day and 10€ for a full day, and they’re open 10am-1pm, and 2pm to 6pm. +33 4 93 80 27 07
