This is a small hotel, with an impressive art collection. The rooms are nice, and the restaurant is really good. Just be aware that the rooms are noisy, you can here everything that happens in the other rooms. The staff is very helpful.

The property was very nice, but my cosmetic bag with many expensive and needed items was taken from our bathroom. Despite the manager saying she would contact me about possibly reimbursing me for the loss, I Still haven't heard from her.

Seduced at once by the minimalist design and the art /sculpture collection worthy of being a top international gallery... The staff was 5 star calibre and the owner personally met and greeted guests at (sumptuous) breakfast buffet each morning. Rooms were modern, superbly designed and ultra-comfortable. Excellent location to some of the best restaurants in the city.

Studio Hotel was warm and welcoming though I arrived late in the rain. I loved the buffet breakfast included, and then enjoyed the rooftop pool. Easy wi-fi and a brand new room with a lovely bathroom made it a cozy refuge.

Minimalist décor, but ample amenities in rooms including a hairdryer. Only stayed there our first & last night in Costa Rica but it was a good place to land. Breakfast buffet. Staff were pleasant. We didn't eat at their new restaurant, but it's onsite which is really helpful.

I had a conference towards the airport and many hotels were booked so my host set me up at the Studio Hotel.
