We arrive in to Santiago airport at 9am, what is easiest/cheapest way to get to the hotel? Is early check in available or storage for luggage?
We took a taxi. Get a pre-paid ticket for a taxi inside the airport. Do not take a taxi from the street.
The hotel is used to having international passengers arriving at all times and will accommodate if a room is available. There is storage for luggage.
We took a taxi from the airport to the hotel. We purchased the taxi fare inside the airport. If I remember correctly, the cost for two was about US $35.00, fixed price. The taxi dispatcher said we should also pay a tip. This was totally unnecessary. The taxi took us directly to the hotel. The driver was very nice, but spoke very little English.
I believe that the hotel is used to international passengers arriving at all hours. If you contact them ahead of time you can probably arrange an early arrival.
Well I think you should try a Transfer to the city. There are some companies that have Vans going to downtown. As you leave the arrival area, you´ll see the service of Vans(transfers). It´s cheap and fast. It is possible to make reservation online in case you want to do it in advance.
