We started our honeymoon trip by staying one night close to San José. Hotel Studio had the most helpful staff to aid us in many questions we had about Costa Rica. They also prepared a nice gift for us: a bottle of wine and a nice romantic arrangement in our room. The restaurant in the hotel had very courteous waiters... More

It is very comfortable, clean hotel with all the usual facilities. It also includes a fridge, TV and air conditioning. It had 2 queen beds which were comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is situated in amongst other building so it doesn't have any grounds or gardens. There are a few eating places nearby as will as... More

Stayed here on the first night of our Costa Rica expedition. A bit out of the way with nothing interesting around, so one is confined to the hotel. The hotel itself is very pleasant, however, with all the walls on all floors covered in rather interesting art work. The restaurant was good with plenty of choices and the food was... More

Our room on the first floor (108) was large, with 2 comfy queen beds, mini fridge, full-length mirror, and large bathroom with a "rain" shower head. This room is down the hall from the dining area and a previous review made me worried about it being noisy. I am a very light sleeper, but this room was very quiet (except... More

We often stay overnight in San Jose for shopping trips and have found the Studio excellent value for a very nice hotel. It is a little out of the way from many restaraunts or shopping -so you need a car. Overall the rooms are very nice -the breakfast is incuded and quite good. The fitness room is good - just... More

This is a nice, modern, clean hotel for a night's stay near San Jose. We ordered a few appetizers from the restaurant which were outstanding. A little disappointed in the service, however, since it took a very long time to get a few drinks we ordered (came after the appetizers). We ate dinner and a tapas restaurant next door which...

Thank you for visit and your comment. We are so happy that you enjoyed, mostly the restaurant: it takes an indigenous mixture of ingredients to make the best gourmet flavour. Pura Vida Costa Rica More

It is a decent hotel. It is about 25 mins from the airport, and good place to stay for a night before you start journey through Costa Rica. The hotel's restaurant is very good, but also there are couple decent restaurants next to hotel and a shopping center. Rooms are clean and elegantly designed. I like the arts everywhere. I... More

Hotel provided the basics with a good breakfast and room quality was good. The surrounding area had nothing to offer a tourist so just use this as a base for an onward journey. The roof top pool is not advertised and obtaining towels and finding somewhere to change was a bit of chore but otherwise ok. The roof panels are... More

This hotel is very cute and comfortable. It is also nicely located and easy to find. When you arrive you feel like you are in a little museum because there is beautiful art pieces everywhere.

This is an excellent hotel with many amenities, comfortable beds and quiet rooms. The restaurant is good although there are many interesting places to eat just out the front door. It is about a 20-25 minute ride to the airport, longer if you're driving during business hours since San Jose traffic can snarl up pretty quickly, but if you are... More
