The room includes a nice breakfast (the food is ok). My only complain was that the hot water wasn't working late night, but beside that is a... More

We've been here 3 of the 5 nights we've booked and have thoroughly enjoyed the accommodations. The hotel is quiet, clean and feels/looks like an art gallery. It's located in Santa Ana, which equates to a 20 minute taxi ride from the airport ($30) and $25 dollars to SJ during rush hour. It's located near a brand new business development... More

Elegant antique and contemporary furniture and good lighting throughout completed the ambiance. My room was very comfortable: great sheets on a firm bed, down pillows, good A\C, nice bathroom, good... More

Rooms were super comfortable, beds were great, staff helpful and responsive, food very good. I would recommend it for a stay in the San Jose area. The restaurant both in the hotel and just outside served excellent food. Included breakfast was satisfying and ample - lots of choices.

Room was large, staff was very nice and the artwork and ambiance were both very nice. The swimming pool is on the top floor and overlooks the mountains. The breakfast was adequate. Overall, very nice place to stay for the money.

Our Costa Rica tour began and ended at the Studio Hotel. The roof top pool area was a nice spot for watching the sunset and having a glass of wine. Buffet breakfast was good. Rooms were clean and had a mini fridge and microwave. The artwork was very interesting. A new mall just opened across the street.
