My wife and I stayed one night here on our Flores road trip and I loved it. Lovely big rooms with bedroom, bathroom and sitting room. Aircon provided in the bedroom and sitting room which was a surprise. Outside, there is a lovely garden and sitting area. As elsewhere on Flores, the staff were all friendly and helpful. I would...

We arrived into Ruing from Moni in the early evening only to find the electricity had failed. When we arrived at the place we were going to stay we realised that they did not have power and therefore no fans. At this time the humidity was very high so we booked in at Pondok SVD Riung (website: www.pondoksvdriung.com, email:pondoksvd@gmail.com, mobile... More

It's a bit of a journey to get to Riung (it took us 3 and 1/2 hours on probably the worse road I've ever travelled on from Bajawa!) but as if often the case, the more difficult the journey, the more rewarding the destination, and that was certainly the case with Riung. Riung is a tiny village (little more than... More

We spent 2 nights in this hotel and I would not recommend it to anyone. Rooms are very old and dirty. The place is unsafe. We've been told that people from Riung use to come at night to steal in the rooms while tourists are sleeping. We ended up not sleeping at all. There were red worms on the floor.... More

We stayed at Pondok SVD for 2 nights. The room was simple but very clean. All rooms overlook the garden and this is a very convenient place to meet other travellers and find a guide for a boat trip. Riung has wonderful snorkeling spots and you can rent your equipment at the hotel. Hotel staff is very friendly. Basic food... More

compared to other places to stay in Flores, it's a pleasure to stay in such a spotless place, with very kind and helpful people in charge of the hotel, Also a very quiet garden in front of the rooms. The rooms are simple but very clean.You can ask for a bigger superior room.

This place is clean with hot water and extremely friendly personell. The food was poor and the big rooms were invaided by millipedes. No internet. A good choice though, next to Nirvana. Its costly to have your clothes cleaned. Make sure you dont pay more than 750.000 rp for a boat daytrip as they tend to overprice everything in Flores.

We were taken there by our driver without choice, probably as they all congregate there and I guess we went with the flow knowing that there was little choice in Ruing. We didn´t rate it, overpriced for the quality offered, like most hotels in Flores. Breakfast was awful, worse than the usual pancakes as you just get a roll and... More

What a pleasant find. The rooms are the cleanest I’ve seen. Beds comfy. AC in the evening when there is electricity. Breakfast was basic but ok. The ladies here are friendly. They did a good job with our laundry but was expensive as charge per item. Overall we really like RIung, very nice people. Go RUMAH Makan Muriah for fab... More

first we went to bintang hotel which was a desolated place that looked like it needed renovation although it was supposed to be relatively new. Then we went to pondok which looked much better. At least there were some other guests and it has a nice garden. The room is really basic, not cosy but it's Flores and according to... More
