First of all this place is a bargain. It's probably the best value because most everything here is ridiculouly priced. I've had a house here for 15 years on the coast and never stay in San Jose. I found this lovely place on Trip Advisor and the (good) reviews are spot on. the staff is friendly and professional and the... More

Studio Hotel in Santa Ana is a good choice for lodging if you don't need to get into the city. its modern pleasant design and great location not far from the airport and close to restaurants and entertainment venues as well as spacious and comfortable rooms and excellent breakfast makes it one of the best choices for accommodation near SJO.

Did not stay but visited for a meal , which was very average , but the hotel is definitely worth visiting for it's fine display , of both pictures and sculptures of 1900 and contemporary Local art. Definitely try to have an organised tour as the curator illustrates the difference between European and Central American style of painting . Food... More

Sophisticated modern hotel. Crisp clean linens. Bell hop named Marco was excellent. Check in wasn't till 3 pm, but they stored our luggage while we explored the city. Accommodated us by letting us check in early. Customer service is lacking in the wait staff. Ordered room service and the server didn't bring change. Left to go get change for us.... More

We stayed here as part of a trip to Costa Rica and it was a great way to start our trip. Excellent room, super comfy bed, good breakfast, friendly & helpful staff. But the best part was that you are staying in an art gallery and we enjoyed wandering and looking at the art. The pool on the roof was... More

We had a comfortable and relaxing 3 night stay in this hotel packed with interesting art and rooftop pool. Large bedroom, good breakfast, friendly and informative staff. Rather than pay for relatively expensive taxi or shuttle bus to San Jose, pay about 40 pence equivalent on the public bus to San Jose. It stops outside the hotel. You get off... More

I recently stayed at this hotel for one night on business. The room was large and spacious with decent linens and mattress. Our particular room was shockingly loud as it was positioned down a hall right next to the dining room. The glass doors that shut between the dining room and the hallway did nothing to keep out sound. The... More

A perfect combination of a boutique hotel with all facilities needed for a business center. Prices are really good and in line with their good services. Located in Santa Ana, close to some groceries stores and good restaurantes. It is one of the best places I've been there for business travel. Roof pool is great and gives you a nice... More

We spent three different one night stays at this hotel while we were on our small group OAT tour of Costa Rica. The rooms including the bedding were very comfortable. Breakfast buffet was good with many choices. Hotel staff was very friendly. There are several restaurants within walking distance. We went to the Taco Bar up the street which was... More

This place is fine if your looking for no frills/extras/comfort. The staff was nice but it's pretty much a base end hotel with some nice decor Wouldn't stay here again. Shouldn't be placed in a 4 star category. Wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
