Breath taking art covers the walls of all three floors plus sculptures throughout. You could spend hours just discovering the art but the service is outstanding as well. Nicest, most pleasant staff. The rooms are beautifully done, the pool area is perfect, the amenities all from Italy. What a treat, I didn't want to leave. I will be back for... More

This is a nice looking small hotel built and managed by non-hoteliers. Everything looks like a hotel but it is not. We arrived really late and were happy the room looked nice. The first thing we wanted to do was to adjust the airconditioner. There was a gadget on the wall that looked JUST like a Thermostat. Sadly it could... More

I had expected great service, but what I encountered in the end was way more than I could have ever asked for. From the spic and span rooms, featuring superior workmanship on tiles, marble and wood, over the nice included breakfast buffet to the super-nice employees of the hotel. I have rarely met people who were so friendly and dedicated... More

Impeccable and large rooms. Fine breakfast. Cozy café and restaurant in premises. Very good service. Excellent choice for business or leisure. Top floor has a large pool and adequate gym. There's a Chilamate tree outside the front door that's adorable and offers dense shade.

This is a small hotel, with an impressive art collection. The rooms are nice, and the restaurant is really good. Just be aware that the rooms are noisy, you can here everything that happens in the other rooms. The staff is very helpful.

The property was very nice, but my cosmetic bag with many expensive and needed items was taken from our bathroom. Despite the manager saying she would contact me about possibly reimbursing me for the loss, I Still haven't heard from her.

Seduced at once by the minimalist design and the art /sculpture collection worthy of being a top international gallery... The staff was 5 star calibre and the owner personally met and greeted guests at (sumptuous) breakfast buffet each morning. Rooms were modern, superbly designed and ultra-comfortable. Excellent location to some of the best restaurants in the city.

Studio Hotel was warm and welcoming though I arrived late in the rain. I loved the buffet breakfast included, and then enjoyed the rooftop pool. Easy wi-fi and a brand new room with a lovely bathroom made it a cozy refuge.
