Paris Airport cloak room

Hi,
Does Paris airport have cloak room. If so, any one has an idea about the charges for it.

Thanks,
Ganesh

no, I don't think so. Why would you need a cloak room? Do you mean vestiare, or are you really looking for a baggage check (consigne a bagage)? They don't have those anymore at the airport, for security reasons.

Thanks for the reply. Since we are stoping over while travelling from India to USA, we will be carrying lots of luggage. We have booked a hotel near Eiffel tower. What will be my options?

oh, you mean you wanted baggage held for you because you have a lot of it and don't want to take it to your hotel?

That is a difficult one -- the best choice would be to have the airline ship it through for you, somehow. If that is impossible, and you must collect it, there are baggage check areas at some of the big train stations in Paris -- such as Gare du Nord, which is the first big one on the train from the airport. I don't remember what it costs -- maybe 8 euro a day or something. I don't know how large of pieces they will hold for you or that may fit in their facilities (I think some are lockers, but your bags must be screened).

Sorry, I can't help more, but any way you can avoid taking a lot of heavy and large baggage into Paris for one night, you should do it.

You may want to investigate one of the shuttle services that will take you and all you luggage to your hotel and vice versa - carting heavy luggage on RER to Gare du Nord and back could be a hassle and you'd have to use several lockers it seems so could be costly - can only store luggage 48 hours at Gare du Nord baggage check ("consigne")

Hi VG,

You cannot leave your luggage at the airport.

As noted, a taxi or a shuttle will be the best way to get to your hotel.

Taxi about 50E. Shuttle about 35E.
