Stopover hotel near San Jose & airport

Posted Aug 1, 2017
We book-ended our time in Costa Rica by staying in this charming hotel, 20-30 minutes from the airport in Alajuela. It has a beautiful tree with room to read under in the courtyard, is full of modern art and has massive, clean rooms. They arrange airport transfers for $35, the driver Luis was very professional and friendly, but we opted to go with the local taxi on the way back for ~$25 each way. Breakfast was absolutely excellent, mix of typical and American style foods and amazing handmade tortillas. They even arranged a packed breakfast for us when we had to leave early. The pool was empty, 8m long and a fresh temperature during the rainy season. Overall, we loved it!

A wonderful hotel in a great location.

Posted Jul 19, 2017
This hotel was a jewel that my friend, who lives in Costa Rica, recommended to us. For those of you who need to be in the San José area (we were going for a wedding and made it our summer vacation) this hotel is a wonderful option. It's modern, the rooms have ample space, beds are comfy and it's very clean. And as a bonus: you have a museum collection of art all over the hotel. The pool are is very nice, we received friends there and it was very pkeasant. And the price is very reasonable and includes a very fresh and sufficient buffet breakfast. Also, there are restaurants right outside of the hotel, crossing the street and Momentum Lindora, where you find several great restaurants, is just over 2km away. We mover around in uber (there wifi everywhere) and we even took the bus to Lindora which is just 5 min away. The more days we spent there, the more we found.

Super nice hotel and good location

Posted Jul 18, 2017
The hotel was about 15-20 min away from the airport. It was very clean.. large bed..actually was a King size bed. The floor.. the sheets .. the bathroom ..was all very clean and I have to say this was more like a 5 star hotel. They have smart keys ... and the rooms were cleaned every day when we left and came back they had the bed fixed and fresh new towels. FREE breakfast from 6am-10am. Rrally good and it was always good. Rice and beans. Eggs and a different meat... and also had tortillas.Everyone was super friendly.. they even exchanged money for us for. U.S DOLLARS to Colones(Costa Rican money) .. there is a restaurant in the property... food was Ok. There are a few restaurants in the walking area.. We went to Lo Spago.. Italian place.. it was ok.. just expensive to me for Italian food. Nothing out of this world! But I do recommend going to WingYard across the street. Super cheap and really yummy wings and yuca bites. There is also a fresh market and masxomenos.. two supermarkets down the street in opposite directions from each other. We would go buy sodas to put in our fridge and chips and candies.. definetely would stay here again!!!

The Studio Hotel is one of the San Jose area best.

Posted Jul 9, 2017
Pros: The location was excellent for visiting our resident family.
Cons: The breakfast staff good be much more friendly.
Location: Everything you need is close by and within walking distance.
Check-in was top notch; we were given a perfect room with wonderful evening views. This is a art-deco hotel with much to view on exhibit. The buffet each morning was very good and comes with the room. You won't go away hungary. The location is great for the western subs of San Jose, but you are a good distance from the cultural areas.

Nice art work but that is the only positive thing

Posted Jul 9, 2017
We arrived late after being stuck behind an accident for 5 hours. So, we booked a superior room with a view of the ocean. You had to look hard. My daughter went to shower and locked the door and was stuck in there for 25 mins - I called every number and no answer so my husband had to kick the door in. The sheets were so crunchy that it sounded like you were opening a bag of chips if you moved. Also full size beds. Food was inedible - milk was hot so my youngest could not eat cereal and the yogurt was hot. They tried to help but it did not work out and we had to move to a better hotel

The facilities at Studio Hotel.

Posted Jul 8, 2017
The front office team + morning f& b team in hotel restaurant are excellent. Superb room service PLUS house keeping. The General Manager Freddy Warner is a gem of a person. The hotel's decor is superb. Only drawback is swimming pool, it's not heated. Cold water don't let U swim.
