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...

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. The rooms are plain but spacious and confortable. The only thing, if you want to sleep in the morning do not take a room close... More

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

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
