It is located on Republica street, between O'Higgins (AKA the Alameda) and Salvador Sanfuentes. Close to the hotel, the [[http://www.bbcasabonita.com/|Casa Bonita]] B&B has been well evaluated by our visitors as well.

 +Alternatively, some visitors have had good experiences with renting furnished flats. Here is a general page for [[http://www.contactchile.cl/en/rooms-rents.php|room/appartment rental]].
 +In 2012, we have had good feedback about [[https://www.google.cl/search?q=+The+City+Apart+santiago|The City Apart]]. 
 +Another good option is the furnished flats offered by [[http://www.holidays-in-chile.com/|this website]]. We've used them in 2011 and 2012. The location is quite convenient (esp. the ones in Santa Beatriz).

-For transportation from and to the airport we recommend calling a radiotaxi. The company we usually employ can be called at +56 2 928 00 00 (spanish speaking only, sorry -- contact us if you need assistance for that). For airport pickups you need to provide your flight number and arrival time. The ride from the airport should be around $14000, you will need to pay in cash. +For transportation from and to the airport we recommend calling a radiotaxi.

 Public transport within santiago consists of metro and buses, and is operated by the company [[http://www.transantiago.cl|Transantiago]]. You need to buy a contactless smartcard (a 'tarjeta bip') and charge it with money. One payment allows you to transfer up to three times between buses and metro within a 2 hour period (but not to leave and re-enter a metro station). More information about metro lines can be found in the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Santiago_Metro|wiki page]] Public transport within santiago consists of metro and buses, and is operated by the company [[http://www.transantiago.cl|Transantiago]].

-Taxis are plenty and cheap, just ensure the driver does not forget to turn on the meter. Also a general idea of where you are going can be useful to avoid 'accidental' small detours.+Taxis are plenty and cheap, just ensure the driver does not 'forgetto turn on the meter.
