Accommodations in Santiago

 

If you are a foreign visitor to Chile then you are entitled to full VAT exemption for accommodation. You do not need to pay 19% tax in the hotel provided you: 1) show your passport to the hotel cashier, 2) pay your expenses with cash, in US currency. Therefore, it is a good idea to bring US bills, even if you do not use that currency in your country. You can also change some currencies to US dollars or Chilean pesos at "Casas de Cambio" in downtown Santiago. The Casas de Cambio typically accept Euros, British pounds, Australian dollars, Canadian dollars, Japanese yens, Argentinian pesos and Brazilian reais.

The Conference organizers have made agreements with some Santiago hotels which provide guaranteed reduced prices to CSCWD'09 participants. They are listed below. You must make a reservation directly with the chosen hotel using the provided form as soon as possible. The hotels may not be able to provide accommodations for late reservations. If no hotel matches your needs, of course you can find another one through a travel agency or directly by Internet.


The three hotels listed below are located in downtown Santiago. There are many restaurants and cafes nearby (Lastarria street, and crossing the river, Bellavista neighborhood).
