Kongregasi Santa Maria Berdukacita

I spent two nights in this structure and I have enjoyed the great hospitality of the nuns and the clean room. As it can be seen on the pictures posted on Trip Advisor, the place is new and very well kept. Value for money is excellent. If you need a place to stay in Reuteng, do not hesitate to go there.

The sisters are very welcoming, the place is very nice and clean. The rooms a basic but clean. But there is an evening curfew and very little options in the area if you want to go to a restaurant. Ruteng town center is too far away to walk. I would not stay here unless you have some means of transport. Breakfast is very basic and not to be remembered.

Room Tip: There are big differences in size of the rooms. My wife and I slept in a dark room which just fitted...

This place, a kind of monastery, is runned by nuns and trainees of a school for tourism in Flores. For us it was very special, a nice quit atmosphere. After arrival we talked with one of the nuns about their life, she gave us a small tour to the chapel. The rooms are not big, clean and a good shower. Breakfast is complete, not special.

This is a place that offers rooms but is not really a hotel. It is a convent / retreat operated by Catholic nuns. They have about 10 separate rooms in 2 different buildings. The rooms are fine, each with a separate bathroom, and very clean. There is no room cleaning or towel replacement, once you get in the room you are on your own. Do not expect any service other than a room. Breakfast is offered, but it is marginal - packaged white bread with some jams and butter, fried eggs that appeared to be made the night before, plus fruit (bananas) and tea and instant coffee. A peculiarity is that the main building cannot be unlocked from the outside so if you arrive when it is locked (always) you have to look around to find someone to let you in. There is a dormitory on site with lots of high-school age girls who I presume to be nuns-in-training or perhaps have been sent here to be straightened out. Either way, they sing at 9PM and 6AM. For meals, we went to Agape restaurant in town, see another review. There are a few other hotels in Ruteng, but to be honest they did not look as nice as this place so despite its peculiarities it is probably the best place in town.

We stayed there one night. The place is clean but very impersonal.There is no restaurant and don't go there if you don't have a car as it is far from the center. We had no interactions with the sisters except to pay for the room. If you're looking for practical advice and help from your hotel, this is not the place to go.

Considering the standard lf accomodation in Flores (outside Labuanbajo, where good hotels can be found) this is the best accomodation I satayed at. Runned by nuns, it is kept clean, tidy and well mantained. i would really recommed it.

Small but spotless room with comfy beds and set way back from the road where it is nice and quiet. Hot shower and basic breakfast of fried egg, rice, banana, bread and jam. The nuns are lovely but are not really able to help with any onward travel or tourist advice (we actually went down the road to Hotel Rima for this as they have a lot of info on a noticeboard just inside). Unfortunately I was woken in the night by intense itching and by morning I was covered in bed bug bites (please note bed bugs are not related to cleanliness). We did let the nuns know, but just be careful here.
