nice place, good breakfast, bit pricey for a convent.
Paid 210,000 double room. Clean rooms, breakfast of egg, bread, jam, banana. Nuns sang at night but...

What we say: 4.5 stars

Known to locals as MBC (we kept thinking they were saying Embassy, but it is actually the acronym of the place) Susteran St Maria Berdukacita has, without doubt, the most spotless, well kept lodgings in Ruteng and arguably the cleanest rooms in Flores. MBC is a convent by day but offers very solid rooms as an evening sideline, with the only real downside being you're a solid 15-minute walk from the centre of town. Rooms are immaculate with hot water bathrooms and comfortable beds. There's a family room with two bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as singles through to triples (one single, one double) on offer. Given all the pristine floor tiling, it can get a touch noisy if people are talking in the corridors or modest lounge/lobby area. A simple breakfast of eggs, bread, rice and bananas comes with the deal. Best of all, about 30 minutes after the mosque quiets down after its first call of the day, the nuns get going singing. We'd never woken to a nuns' choir before. Recommended.
