To reach us, simply take the green line of the subway and get off at Bellas Artes station; once you are at the street level, walk west for 2 blocks until Mac Iver st., turn right and walk for another block and a half, we are at the 661 of Mac Iver st. Plaza de Armas station is also equally distant.

If you are coming from Santiago's airport, you can either take a shuttle (around US$12) and give them our address, or you can take a 'Centro Puerto' bus (US$ 3) that will leave you at Pajaritos subway station (red line), where you can continue your trip towards downtown. Taxis are another option and they will cost you around US$35, we can book one for you. Just email us your flight details and number of guests (up to 4 with little luggage)
