The hotel itself is very good. The rooms are and the hotel personnel are polite and pleasant. The weakness of the hotel is the restaurant. The breakfast is really poor. There are feel choices of food. During my stay there, even bread was missing in the breakfast. At the dinner, there are also feel options available. I had to choose... More

A beautiful hotel, I would highly recommend it!! The staff was so accommodating and friendly and the rooms were so clean. The breakfast buffet each morning had many choices and was excellent. We also had dinner one evening and the General Manager came over and was so gracious and invited my daughter and her friends, who are college students teaching... More

Very nice hotel. The best one we stayed at during our trip. Sadly we stayed only one night after flying into San Jose and had to leave early the next morning. Staff friendly both late at night and in the early morning hours. Spoke English. Comfortable and clean room. Very satisfied. Approx 20 min from the airport at about 10pm... More

My husband & I had the pleasure of staying at the Stdio Hotel for just a couple of days before heading to La Fortuna. The hotel looks very nice from the out side but because it is located behind another building it does not have all the charm of a fancy hotel. Wow! The saying never judge a book by... More

Met at the car in the parking lot by well dressed staff carrying an umbrella during a storm. Things just got even better from there on in this delightfully decorated building, which brings a smile to your face at every turn with clever artwork and beautiful lighting throughout. A thoroughly pleasant visit, which I shall certainly repeat. Remarkably executed large... More

My partner and I spent 8 days at Studio Hotel this August and fell in LOVE! We’ve penned it our Costa Rican home away from home. The hotel’s art is beautiful (Marcia Salas, Manuel Vargas and Rafa Fernandez are my newly discovered artists) the staff is FABULOUS and the food was delicious!

Spent one night at the Studio Hotel upon arrival into Costa Rica. Rooms are very clean and spacious. We spent a nice afternoon sitting at the roof top pool which was very pleasant. The staff at the Studio Hotel were very helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet was very nice. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for two nights in September upon the recommendation of Wild Rider, our rental car company. The room was super spacious and very stylish. The bed must have been a California King and should have come with its own zipcode, it was that big. Very chic hotel with original artwork everywhere. The pool was closed, so can't comment on...

Very nice place. Quiet atmosphere, awesome personnel, cloud soft bed. Very tasty breakfast with traditional TICO offering which was worth the visit alone. Bustling community in Santa Ana. Try it. By the way, the restaurant is 5 star. But, in the shopping center next door is a place called the Buffalo Grill where I had the most tasty hamburger ever.
