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 a couple of hotels in the area that will store non-guest luggage, the Hotel Belle Meuniere and the Hotel Interlaken, both about 5 minutes away on rue Durante. But here’s the catch: to get there you cross the street then have to schlep you luggage down a big staircase, then one more block to 21 or 26 Avenue Durante. They give the best deal at all-day for 5€ a bag, but it’s not much of a deal when you realize that you will be lugging your luggage back up that staircase at the end.
The best option with the big plus of no stairs is the Hotel de Berne, which is 2 minutes away and right across from the Gare Thiers tram stop, and will store your stuff for 6€ a bag. Call them to reserve, as space is limited.
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 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. They are near to where you catch the Nice Airport Express bus to get back to the airport.
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. The location is super-convenient if you are staying in a vacation rental apartment in the Old Town, and is just few minutes walk across the park to catch the Nice Airport Express bus to get back to the airport. Tram stop Cathedrale.
Another good Old Town option is MyBagInNice, just off Cours Saleya at 7 rue Jules Gilly, which is especially great if you just need to park your bag for a few hours. They offer half days (up to 4 hours) for just 4€, full days for 6€, and 24-hours for 8€. +33 4 93 87 30 64.
Luggage Storage near the Nice Port
Just off Place Garibaldi on the way to the Port, you can stow your stuff with the oddly named PhoneAndRecycle at 3 rue Cassini. They charge 7€/day for a big suitcase, and are conveniently located just across the square from the first pick up point for the Nice Airport Express bus, and very close to the Garibaldi tram stop. +33 4 93 56 12 87
