“Great Place to Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

We stayed at the Studio Hotel the night before we had to return to the USA after a week vacation in Costa Rica. I must stay I was extremely pleased with the service and the room. The hotel is very clean and the staff is great. The breakfast is exceptional and was included in the price. The artwork in the hotel is very interesting. Do not hesitate to book a room at this hotel.

I stayed at this hotel at the start and at the end of my month's journey around Costa Rica. Large and clean bedrooms - I reckon the best beds in the whole of Costa Rica! The friendly staff from the manager to the waiters couldn't do enough to make my stay as a single traveller, comfortable and safe. The rooftop pool was a blessing at the end of a hectic month's travelling. A wonderful place to stay. I didn't eat at the hotel in the evening as there were 3 good restaurants next door. You should try it out!

Frequent trqvelers, this was hands down one of the best hotels we have experienced. We have paid 2-3 times the price for less.. I knew we were in for a great experience when our check in included a hug to the front desk personnel because of his gracious care! After a long day of travel, we were greeted with a smile and an offer for beverage...exactly what we needed! And the hotel didn't disappoint in any way. Very clean and modern with every detail attended to. The beds and bedding were heaven. Smart design with original Costa Rican art everywhere! If we had to go out of our way to stay here again, we definitely would! Thank you to everyone who made our stay so comfortable!

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad one here!

Immaculate hotel with very attentive service. Wish we had time to enjoy the rooftop pool. This was a great choice for our last night in Costa Rica. It cost $22 for a taxi to the airport from Studio Hotel Santa Ana. The included breakfast buffet was excellent. We enjoyed a Central American rice and bean breakfast dish (something like Gallo Pinto?) along with both European and North American breakfast selections. Loved the marble in the bathroom, excellent linens on the bed, new LCD TV which allowed me to review photos direct from my SD card.

The service that we experienced arriving just before the restaurant closed at 9pm was exceptional. The price that we paid was significantly cheaper than lower-rated "name" hotels in Alajuela. Once the introductory deals available on Expedia end it would be worth paying the rack rate for this quality hotel. Extremely satisfied.

Thank you so much for your comment, we value a lot the time that you dedicated to us for express us your experience in our hotel.

We are proud to know that you enjoyed our bedrooms, because we thought in every detail for make them wider and more different than the rest of the other hotels around, because in Studio Hotel “we are a master piece in the art of lodging”

About the high quality in our food, we owe that to the hard team effort for create the Katowa restaurant, because it was borned as a new culinary proposal with Costa Rican flavors.

We would love to have you back in here sometime, for we can continue serving you as you deserved.

Sincerely,

Gustavo Botero

I was here Jan. 7 -Jan. 10, 2012. This is a new immaculate hotel in a quiet area 20 min. from both the airport and downtown San Jose, close to many restaurants and a huge shopping area. Very chic and modern, the lobby and restaurant area decorated with tastefull Costa Rican art, they have a beautiful open air rooftop pool, also a small excercise room (could use more equipment). I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, not in the least because of the super helpful and welcoming staff. From Eddy in reception, to Ronald and Julianna in travel services (who each performed last minute minor miracles for me), this hotel has a huge asset in these excellent people!! Thank you!

We stayed at the Studio Hotel for our first and last night during a recent dental tourism visit. This was the fourth time we have been to Costa Rica and have traveled the country and stayed at many hotels, always looking for something that would come up to 4 star American Hotel standards. That is very hard to find in C.R. so you can imagine how happy we were when we found the Studio Hotel. The staff greeted us with warm welcomes and contagious Costa Rican smiles. They were professional, eager to please, help, do whatever we needed. We had dinner at the restaurant which was the best we've had in the whole country. I wanted dessert one night after the restaurant closed and they made a special effort to create something just for me....cookies and cream ice cream with a cherry on top! The beds were new and clean with crisp sheets and comfortable bedding. The bathroom was new and modern and spotless with good toiletries. Breakfast was delicious...what else could you ask for? Oh, and NO BUGS IN THE ROOM!!! Thank you Ronnie, Eugenia, Eddie, Juliana and the servers in the restaurant. Everyone was so hospitable....WE WILL BE BACK! And, we will recommend this hotel to others.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet area, ask for a room away from the kitchen. Other than that, there is really not...
