My husband and I stayed at Studio Hotel for three weeks while studying in a Spanish language immersion program at Conversa, also located in Santa Ana. It was a great experience. The hotel is small, secure, modern, attractive,and immaculate. It is close to the airport and not far from downtown San Jose. The entire hotel staff received us warmly and... More

Very well furnished, comfy beds, great shower, and the best breakfast we had in an entire month in Central America. However, the "heated" pool was freezing, and the complimentary breakfast drinks we ordered never came. The airport shuttle only runs Mon-Fri, so if you fly out on a Sat or Sun, you're on the hook for a cab (will run... More

Stayed here 3 separate nights over 3 weeks... Each time we came, we had a 5 star experience. Beautiful, Affordable, and a great free breakfast... Staff was outstanding... I will be back Petah MacEachern Boston Ma.

Like the location since it is easy to get there from everywhere else. Service was really great. Also VERY safe with security access point to even get into parking. I liked the restaurant - of all the hotels I stayed in during my trip (including Hilton Papagayo resort) it was the best breakfast. Rooms are small though.

This is a very attractive, contemporary hotel and seems to be geared more toward business travelers than families or tourists. Staff was very polite and efficient--however the personal touch was severely lacking. Otherwise, perfect. Our room was a good size and very clean--it was decorated beautifully, if you like artistic-modern. Minor things were that the room safe malfunctioned and the... More

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
