Hotel Susteran
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Ruteng
Reviewed 29 August 2013 via mobile

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 was easy to control the temperature, which is normally fairly difficult in Asian counties. It also had a full size bar of soap which was handy in preventing me from dropping it.

My room had 2 single beds and a tiny bathroom. There was enough space to walk between the beds but that was about it. The bathroom did smell a bit and there was no separator for the shower on the floor only a curtain, resulting in significant bathroom floor space covered in water while showing.

Breakfast was served at 7:30am and was quite insubstantial, including 1 fried egg, some bread with jam and a self serving of bananas, tea and rice.

I shouldn't really complain though as I got the room for 140k rp per night.

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 Ruteng is cold because of the height, and nightlife (or even a pasar malam) seem to be absent. Which means you have to go to bed early. However, the sisters don't expect you to attend the early morning mass :--)

Room Tip: I had a huge room for a slightly higher prize. Absolutely worthwile.

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 restaurant (Although food and service is extremely poor)

Stayed here recently during a road trip in Flores. The rooms were immaculate and the ensuite perfect! Very reasonably priced...current rate was 270000 per room which included breakfast. Overall, it was a delightful experience and the nuns were very kind.

Room Tip: Easily the best accommodation available in Ruteng.

All I can say is stay here, we have stayed in many places around indonesia and we had one of our best nights sleep here, and for a very cheap price. Safe and comfortable. Breakfast was simple but sufficient.

Only 200.000 rupiah per night for a double bed in a very clean room, including breakfast (basic) and very helpful staff (arranged within minutes a car with driver to take us to Labuan Bajo the next day). We were very satisfied with this accommodation!

Value for money hotel. Trully unique managed by catholic sisters, you must be inside the hotel before 9:00 pm because they will lock the main gate. The room is clean and small, the night was so quiet. Smoking is prohibited inside the room
