Like some other reviewers was a bit hesitant to book because of the distance from the airport. Fairly simple to get to and well worth the effort. Staff was great. Free gated parking and breakfast a huge bonus. Room modern, clean with pleasant decor. However, the thing that sets this hotel apart is the amazing design and artwork. Felt like... More

I stayed at the Studio Hotel at both the beginning and end of my trip to Costa Rica. It's a $10 Uber from SJO and close to grocery stores and other generic shopping. It's clean, comfortable, and the staff is friendly. They have two restaurant options, a nice open-air pool on the third floor, and a small gym with a... More

Hotel isn't as nice as depicted in the pictures, I believe a little overpriced for what you get. The basics are okay, bed isn't uncomfortable. They don't have robes, the breakfast is alright. I booked through Expedia for this hotel and the Sheraton in San Jose, Costa Rica. Sheraton was cheaper and 30 times better.

This was a last minute reservation, not knowing that the hotel we booked in San José center had no parking available we had to make a last minute online switch. The hotel has great rooms, we had the Deluxe King corner suite on the 3rd floor, very clean and comfortable beds. Not much of a view, but it didn't make... More

Stayed one night after later airport arrival. Room was very very clean. Lovely comfy beds with nice linens. Nice bedside light. Good breakfast with lots of choices. Very happy with hotel, but cab fare to/from was more than expected...$25 each way.

Loved the atmosphere of the Hotel from the moment we drove up with the sculpted tree in the front Courtyard to the artwork placed carefully indoors and out. The restaurant had a wide array of choices including vegan options.

Beautiful, delicious breakfast, wonderful service, and very comfortable room. Would have been perfect, but my cold shower put a damper on the stay. It was only a 25 minute drive from the airport, and the hotel arranged transportation for me the next day.
