To clarify on the cleanliness rating, that's by Indonesian standards, which are generally very low.
The hotel is very well maintained, and all the common areas are clean and well kept.
The gym is well equipped and staffed. The tennis court is in great condition. The staff is very friendly, and most speak decent English. The rooms are very large and well furnished. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking and eating utensils. The rooms all have a modern and efficient washer/dryer combo. All have a largish LCD TV in the living room with surround sound system and a old style TV in the master bedroom.
All air conditioners are quiet and efficient. The stove is a bit odd, as is the oven but they serve their purpose quite well. The buffet breakfast has a decent selection and the restaurant serves delicious food. Be careful where you eat in Jakarta, and always know where you're nearest washroom is. Stay away from any ground fruits such as strawberries. There's not too many cattle for fertilizer here, but there are 23 million people...If it's served washed, not peeled, don't eat it.
The right housekeeper will keep your place very clean and orderly. But I don't trust any of them to wash the dishes as a few times with different house keepers, I've had to rewash dishes to get food off them. But this isn't unique to Somerset, I wouldn't trust any Indo to wash my dishes. Sorry if that sounds rude, but I've been here long enough to know they do not have the same levels of cleanliness as I'm used to in Canada.
My girlfriend and I have been staying here for the past 5 months on business and we're both very comfortable with this residence. Would definitely recommend to anyone.
