“A gem of a hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2012

Before leaving the country we stayed at this wonderful hotel near San Jose airport. The art gallery quality of the hotel, the contemporary furnishings and terrific staff made me want to stay longer. Sadly we had only one night there. It would be my first choice in the area.

This hotel is so much more than what you see on the web site. It is new, clean, tastefully decorated with beautiful art. The rooms are well appointed. The service is outstanding, friendly and helpful. Nice small bar area. Great breakfast and dining area, white table cloths in a sunny bright room. The roof pool and bar area offers a great view of the mountains. There is a travel agent on staff, he arranged a very nice city day tour for us. Close to the airport and downtown.
This would be our first choice of places to stay in SanJose.

This was my second trip to Costa Rica and the Studio Hotel was recommended by a few colleagues. The hotel exceeded my expectations in every facet of my stay. The staff was exceptional, helpful, and accomodating of every request (I had a few). In particular Ronald, the hotel manager, made every effort to make my stay as enjoyable as possible.
Since the hotel is new the accommodations are beautiful, modern, clean, and comfortable. The hotel is in the best location in the San Jose area and is easily accessible to all parts of the city.
The pool area is lovely and provides stunning views of the surrounding mountains.
Without question I will be staying at the Studio Hotel during my next trip.
See you soon, Ronald and the entire staff!

We stayed at the Studio Hotel the night before we had to return to the USA after a week vacation in Costa Rica. I must stay I was extremely pleased with the service and the room. The hotel is very clean and the staff is great. The breakfast is exceptional and was included in the price. The artwork in the hotel is very interesting. Do not hesitate to book a room at this hotel.

I stayed at this hotel at the start and at the end of my month's journey around Costa Rica. Large and clean bedrooms - I reckon the best beds in the whole of Costa Rica! The friendly staff from the manager to the waiters couldn't do enough to make my stay as a single traveller, comfortable and safe. The rooftop pool was a blessing at the end of a hectic month's travelling. A wonderful place to stay. I didn't eat at the hotel in the evening as there were 3 good restaurants next door. You should try it out!

Frequent trqvelers, this was hands down one of the best hotels we have experienced. We have paid 2-3 times the price for less.. I knew we were in for a great experience when our check in included a hug to the front desk personnel because of his gracious care! After a long day of travel, we were greeted with a smile and an offer for beverage...exactly what we needed! And the hotel didn't disappoint in any way. Very clean and modern with every detail attended to. The beds and bedding were heaven. Smart design with original Costa Rican art everywhere! If we had to go out of our way to stay here again, we definitely would! Thank you to everyone who made our stay so comfortable!

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad one here!
