We chose this hotel after seeing the favourable reviews for it on Trip Advisor but unfortunately cannot concur with them.
We're backpackers and not new to it- my partner also travelled India extensively a few years ago. We don't expect a huge amount but cleanliness is definitely top of our list and I would gladly describe the Sun Rise as a pit.
The room was filthy, made worse by the fact that the two guys and one young man who work there mooched around watching tv or sitting in the sun when they could've been giving the floors a quick mop or clearing away some of the extensive cobwebs. There were pubic hairs on our toilet seat, the floor was disgusting and the sheets and beds were very stained. The room stank of cigarette smoke and there was a full ashtray next to the bed. The air cooler was situated in some kind of outdoor passage that seemed to double as a cesspit and when turned on the whole room filled with the smell of sewage.
Finally, when we left, I dropped a button on the floor and when I bent down to look for it, I saw a used condom under the bed. How long it had been there is anybody's guess.
All of this was for 650 Rupees a night for a non a/c room, which is comparatively high even for a clean room.
The place was disgusting and I'd never stay there again.
