Clean rooms (but small) and well kept grounds. Bad breakfast. Electricity stops in the evening but before that we had occasional electricity failure as well. Hot water in the shower not available all the time. Service not so great either. So, practical place to stay but not really great fun or value.

Looked after by the nuns, the accommodation here was very clean and offered hot water, which is not so common in Flores. On the downside, the room was rather small. I would happily stay here again and can certainly believe that it the best in Ruteng.

This hotel is run by catholic sisters and is actually made up of a few buildings of a catholic mission. The rooms are quite spacious and clean with a shower. There is lots of hot water and good water pressure. The bed is also comfortable with soft pillows, bedding, sheets and towels are provided. The Cost for double room was... More

We arrived just after 9pm as we had journeyed from Ruing but we had informed the staff that we would be late and they were fine with it. The room was simple but clean with just a double bed, coffee table and separate bathroom (with towels and soap provided). The shower was hot for my partner in the morning but... More

It was a very interesting experience to be staying in a convent and getting a glimpse into the life of the Catholic nuns who run the place. The room is basic but very clean and comfortable enough. Hot water available in the attached private bathroom. I like the firm pillow as well. The grounds and gardens are very well-maintained and... More

After four days travelling around flores, we found this place as the best, cleanest and convenient hotels. They provide room for single, double bed, double + 1 single rooms. They dont provide drinking water but you can ask for water in the reception if you have glass or bottle. No fridge and sandals but they give 1 soap. The city... More

Having been strongly discouraged from staying at other places in Ruteng, both by online reviews and by my guides, I have booked into Hotel Susteran. This isn't really s hotel, but more of a convent that rents out rooms on the side. The main positives are, the cleanliness and the hot water. Hot water rates a special mention as it... More

I never guessed I would stay two nights in a convent. But then you also don't expect sisters to joke, smile, sing and giggle in between there religious duties. The rooms are clean, the interior is (of course) Indonesian style. The water was hot and the gardens are beautiful. No problem you have to be in-house by 9 pm, since... More

Kongregasi Santa Maria Berdukacita or Hotel Susteran is an perfect place for a short stay in Ruteng. It is guaranteed the cleanest accomodation on Flores, and the nuns take good care of you, as long as you dont get in their way. Very nice and quiet place in a very boring town. Tip: If you need Wifi, go to Agape... More
