Luggage Storage in Paris

We are arriving in Paris at 10AM, but our hotel check-in is for 4PM...is there a good places to store our bags.

Our hotel is next to Disneyland...so I don't want to waste time taking the train to our hotel to store our bags and then taking the train back to Paris. And then taking the train back to the hotel to check in for the evening. Thanks all.

Whether you take the RER or Air France bus to town, you can dump the bags at the Gare de Lyon Left Luggage and grab them on the way out.

Thanks Robespierre,

Where is the Gare de Lyon Left Luggage? Is it a train station or something?

Thanks

Hi T,

"Gare" means train station.

Don't try to pronounce it. Just write it down.

Does anyone know how late Gare de Lyon is open until for storage? Is it self-serve or is it one with an attendant?

We probably won't pick it up till 9 or 10PM. Thanks

The left-luggage ("consigne") at the Gare de Lyon is apparently open from 0615 to 2245. There is also one at the Gare du Nord which might be more convenient.

Be advised that if you are planning to store your luggage in the lockers at the train station (as at Gare du Nord), bring smaller bags. Better to have two 22" suitcases instead of one 26". There aren't many lockers available to handle the large suitcases and they have ALWAYS been taken when I've been there. But your chances of finding lockers to handle smaller suitcases are pretty good.

Is there a place at the train station where there is live person that runs a similar service instead of lockers if all the big lockers are taken? It might be hard to carry only two 22s.

The last time I stored luggage at Gare du Nord (a few months ago), there was no traditional left luggage with a staff attendant. Only lockers (in the basement level). Can't say about the Gare du Lyon.
