Away from Labuanbajo, accommodation choices in Flores are limited and the catholic nunnery is one of the more popular choices in Ruteng. It's exceptionally good value and our room, although basic, was huge (housing a double bed and a single bed) and was absolutely immaculate.
The nuns were very pleasant at check-in and when we saw them around the nunnery and at breakfast time.
The hotel is about 30 minutes walk from the centre of Ruteng but there's little need to go into the centre of Ruteng - there is a fantastic restaurant (Spring Hill) about 15 minute walk from the hotel.
Breakfast is simple (bread, egg, tea/coffee) but this is typical of most places in Flores we found.
An excellent, very well-priced option for Ruteng.
