Holiday with little ones in tow required a plan of finding a comfortable spacious accommodation that would fit all of us in comfort, doesn’t it? We love staying in a serviced apartments where the units are spacious, comfortable and homey. One of our accommodations in our month length stay in Jakarta was Somerset Berlian in the South of Jakarta.
Somerset Berlian nestled in an exclusive residential area, about 15 minutes drive from trendy hubs and CBD.
We stayed in a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom executive unit. We were impressed with how spacious and comfortable the unit was. A king size bed in the main room, a queen size bed in the second room and a single bed in the third room. The kitchen is fully equipped (even the dish washing soap was provided). The lounge and dining area are comfortable and equipped with a flat screen and a DVD player.
Other type of units are two bedroom deluxe and executive and 3 bedroom deluxe. Should you stay more than 30 days, a long stay rate is available.
We got excited with the “light touched” drawer. With one light touch, the drawer slides easily. The wi fi are fast in the unit. The unit are fully air-conditioned.
What was more, the unit came with a spacious serviced area where washing machine is located plus an extra maid bedroom and bathroom. Washing powders pouches are provided as well along with an iron, an iron board and a laundry basket. For a mum like me, this makes life much easier in term of laundry!
Another thing that makes a mum’s life easier here that the fact that it’s a serviced apartment. Plus breakfast (fully halaal) is provided in the restaurant downstairs. The breakfast was varied although it’s more to local flavor as opposed to that of western standard.
We liked to spend time in the outdoor area in the ground floor, where the swimming pool, fish ponds, gym, kids playground, bbq area, the restaurant and lounging area are. A small convenient store is located in the basement floor. The staff are all friendly and attentive.
Although the location isn’t exactly in the center of the trendy hubs, within the neighboring area, there are local malls that housed a Carre Foure Supermarket, a food court, eateries, banks and local shops. To get around, a reputable metered taxi are stand-by or call uber or Grab Car (local transport).
We were satisfied with our stay in Somerset Berlian. Should I give a constructive feedback; the cleaning service crew should come early (before noon) and paying attention to thorough cleaning.
If a family comfort in a quite area near the trendy hubs, valued for money that you are looking for in Jakarta, I would recommend Somerset Berlian. Somerset Berlian is a part of Ascott Ltd, a leading international serviced residence .
