“Awesome hotel and so close to the airport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

This hotel is one of the newest hotels in the area of San Jose. What is so unique or awesome about it is the fee. The hotel is filled with artwork from various artist that show there plastic in almost every floor that the hotel has. Another nice thing about it is closenes to the city capitol. Only 10 minutes away in case your doing business or wanting to do a tour of the city. Finally the food that they have is pretty good.

Good evening,
the best regards from the whole team of Studio Hotel, we want to thank you for taking your time for writing us a feedback.

Studio Hotel was born to take all of our guests into a journey of the Costa Rican culture, and that’s the reason why our thematic is really artistic, where we just don't only support the national artists, also we provide to our customers the chance to know more about this beautiful culture.

In regarding to our food quality, Costa Rica Studio Hotel has opened the restaurant Katowa, as a master piece that shines the hotel in another concept.

It is because of this, that we consider ourselves a master piece in the art of lodging, because we mix details with high quality standards.

Finally we hope to see you once again, so we can courteously serve you in our hotel.

Sincerely,

Gustavo Botero
Reservation Manager.

We decided on this hotel purely from looking at a travel website, and when we arrived we were elated that we had made the decision to stay there. The artwork and sculptures were breathtaking. Every turn you take while there is a discovery of more beauty. This is a beautifully appointed hotel!The staff was friendly and helpful. The day we arrived we decided that we wanted to do a night city tour. The concierge had already left for the day so the front desk called him and he called our room and arranged the tour! In the meantime we had food delivered to our room from the restaurant. He arranged and advised about all the tours we went onl The breakfasts were great, the whole atmosphere of the hotel is cosmopolitan and chic. The rooms were beautiful, quiet, clean and we rested well after our many activities. We were able to work out in the gym, and the rooftop pool and cabana were impressive, we just went up to be up there! We will be back! Thank you Studio Hotel for creating wonderful memories!!!!!

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad room in the place!

We stay here our first night after a late flight from Atlanta. While the hotel is a bit far from the airport, it was clean and modern. Breakfast was plentiful and had a great selection. Went for a plesent swim the next morning following breakfast before we headed out to Arenal.

Studio hotel is the first Art Thematic Boutique Hotel in the city, that's why it’s a Master piece of Lodgin.

My wife and I stayed at the Studio Hotel so that we would have an easier connection at the nearby Juan Santamaria Airport (SJO). We based on selection exclusively on TripAdvisor, and our stay was fantastic. The hotel is in a very convenient (although off-street) location near the main intersection in Santa Ana. It is extremely modern, reminding one of a European hotel rather than a Costa Rican hotel (sorry Costa, but it does have a different style). The lobby is quiet, adult, with low lights and a feeling of understated wealth. We did not have a chance to have a meal, but we were served some glasses of Chardonnay and it was excellent. Our room was large, again very modern, and immaculate. Wifi was free, which I always appreciate.

In short, the Studio Hotel deserves its excellent ratings. This is the third hotel that we've stay in while visiting Santa Ana, and while the other two were good, this one is excellent.

Room Tip: I doubt there is a bad room. Very quiet.

This hotel was nice, clean and very convenient to town and the airport but what really made this place so wondedrful was the warm and accomodating staff. We very much appreciated the assistance of Erick, bartender, Roger at the front desk, Aldo the manager and Sergio when we signed in and a lovely young woman also at the desk. Please forgive me I have forgotten her name. Rest assured the staff will provide great service.

Our group (13 individuals) stayed at this hotel from 3 - 9 May, we enjoyed warm service from the staff, the complimentary breakfast, gym, pool on the roof...

A welcoming surprise was that this hotel is eco-friendly in various ways and has achieved the certificate of sustainable tourism from the I.C.T, Costa Rica. The hotel itself incorporates many of Costa Rican and International art. The rooms have all amenities fit for today's average traveller.

To me, a strategic design was placing the pool and pool-bar services on the roof of the hotel. This (in my opinion) added that extra "happy hour" relaxed feel.

Although I did not give the chance to eat lunch or dinner at the hotel (of course other than complimentary breakfast, other meals in hotels are usually more expensive), the breakfast was standard serving your choice style of eggs, porridge, local breakfast, fruits, coffee, juices etc. I loved Costa Rican fruit - it was the most juicy, sweet fruit I have ever tasted.

Overall, the hotel was very comfortable, trendy-modern, great location close to a couple of restaurants mini-grocery stores and minutes (in taxi) away from Multi-plex plaza and other restaurants.
