This was recommended by a local tourism student we met at Lingco Ricefields on the way to Ruteng. We had a scooter so there was no problem with the hotel being located away from the city centre. Accommodation and breakfast provided within a Convent run by Nuns and their students - a bit like what locals all an all girls... More

Ok let it be said the 5 star review is all relative to other accommodation on Flores. For the price (a little lower than other hotels in the region) this is totally worthwhile. Nice clean room, basic but comfortable. Was welcomed after four hours on a motorbike in the rain with a nice warm shower. Completely no-frills, but so is... More

We came here for one night. I must say it's the best sleep I have had in a long time. The only noise is of oneself breathing. Clean rooms and spacious. Early evening one could hear the nuns singing a pray which was soothing for the ears. Ten minute walk to the shops and local restaurants.

Basic small, except room 9, clean rooms with a good bed, warm shower and a big piece of soap! After 9 the doors will be closed to this sanctuary and you are therefore guaranteed of an early quiet night. Breakfast is simple however enough to push you through the morning. The best stopover as far we know.

It was quite a relief to arrive at this place after staying in rather Spartan accommodations elsewhere in Flores. The hotel is located at a convent of the Sisters of Our Lady of Sorrows in the middle of Ruteng. I would give the place high marks for cleanliness and the friendliness of the staff. Low marks for the inconsistent electricity... More

This place is also known as monastery "Maria Berdukacita". This place is run by nuns, and also serve as dormitory for students. A very clean place, all very well maintained. Our room was one of the largest. Inside there's queen size bed with fresh linen and blanket. The room was spotless. The ensuite had a shower with hot water. There's... More

After spending 2 days in a very run down Monastery in Kisol, we arrived at the Nunnery in Ruteng. Heaven! Very clean, small rooms with en suite facilities. Lovely grounds. Breakfast was served and was simple with eggs, bread & jam Tea & coffee.

This homestay is in a convent run by nuns. Everything is basic but well maintained and clean. There is hot water available in the attached private bathroom and a good shower. The breakfast is simple but it is not reasonable to expect more for the price you pay. Be aware that the door closes at 9 pm and breakfast end... More

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.
