I was on a one day trip to Chennai with my wife and have to book a decent hotel with good bus and train connectivity. I have come across Bell and I know about standard of Bell as I am from Madurai. I looked at their website and sent an email for booking as they have rooms with tariff ranging from 2k(it does not show in any other booking websites).
Booked a double room for 2k, and was pleasantly surprised by looking at the room. It was too good for that money and the location which is 5 mins walk from Central Station. It had Wi-Fi, good interior, bed and pillows, cupboard, safe, chairs etc. with adequate light and centralized A/C. Had LCD TV with airtel d2h connection. Bath room was also too good with adequate power supply for electric shavers and separate glass fitted bath place with good shower. Entire room & bathrooms were very clean. Nonstop hot water was available.
The room was facing towards railway line and you might hear the sound but it was not disturbing. Staffs were courteous. The food was good, but costly. Restaurant again was very well maintained with efficient servers. If they serve in your room then add 20% extra. Anyhow there are lot of good vegetarian and non-vegetarian restaurants nearby. Hence you can limit your food in the hotel restaurant.
