“Value for Money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

We wanted somewhere close to the cricket stadium, that was reasonably priced and had a restaurant. The Bell Hotel fitted the bill. The staff were helpful and friendly, the room quiet and the restaurant was clean and served a variety of traditional food.

I stayed at Bell Hotels - Chennai on Apr 23/24th 2013 . unlike other hotels near central railway station , Bell Hotels(0.5Km from Central Railway Station) turned out to be a refreshingly different and pleasant experience when compared to my other hotel stays, the hotel is beautifully designed and offers a quiet and private stay even though you are near the Central Railway Station and Busy Chennai Roads . Though The Railway Tracks behind the hotel may cause u slight disturbance , u can enjoy the rhythm of the tracks burning while sleeping . Housekeeping / Reception / Checkin-Checkout are excellent . Though Restaurant is Slightly Overpriced , Definitely worthy of it . Breakfast buffet is limited but good.one Can Expect fast check-in in midnight too . Will definitely return!!
Suggestion : Can Arrange Pickup/Drop from/to Central Railway Station

Had stayed at this hotel between 23-25th May 2013 and was not happy with the kind of experience I had. The size of the rooms, food taste (below average) and slow response from staff may disappoint you. Proximity of this hotel to central actually makes it a preferred place to stay. But try to avoid, if you have a stay exceeding 1 night.

Room Tip: Avoid Room No.101, this is where I stayed during my visit because of no other room available, a matc...

Dear Guest,

Please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience you may have experienced in respect to get accommodated in an Executive Single Room, which you felt like a match box sized room.

At the time of check-in, when guests feel uncomfortable regarding Room size and keep us informed regarding the same, we assist them and make them satisfactory.

At Bell Hotel, Chennai, we take pride in ensuring our customer’s satisfaction. Unfortunately, we did not meet your—or our own—expectations. Upon thorough review of the situation, we narrowed the cause to key staff changes.

As a testament to our strive for perfection, we have taken steps to ensure that this will never happen again by creating Unit wide training sessions, hiring staffs for back-up support, etc….

Because of this serious oversight, we are going to host you with us for one Night stay.

We deeply value your relationship with Bell Hotels and are committed to providing you with the highest level of service simply because our customers deserve the very best. If you have any further questions or comments regarding this matter, please feel free to discuss it with us.


Yours in service,

Bagya Lakshmi S

I enjoyed my stay at Bell Hotel. In fact, I stayed there twice, for a total of 7 nights.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful.

The hotel has a good restaurant - with plenty of different curries, reasonably priced. The breakfast buffet is much the same every day: curry, idli, omelettes, etc. and enough to sustain one for a few hours.

The rooms are clean and well maintained. They're decorated in a pleasant, simple, modern style. My rooms both had kettles. Very useful! The flatscreen TVs have a wide range of channels, including BBC & CNN. And the wonderful sockets mean that you do not need your international adaptor. I wish more hotels had these clever sockets.

On the first time I faced the railway line, and found the noise a bit of a nuisance. For my second visit I faced the road, and had no problems with noise/vibration.

The internet is a little expensive. Guests need to pay by the hour.

The location is particularly convenient for those arriving from of departing on a train journey. The hotel is very close to Central Station - and not too far from Egmore Station. It is easy to find a tuk-tuk to other parts of the city.

Overall, good value for money.

Room Tip: My advice: try to get a room facing the road not the train line.

Had been to bell central in April 13.The rooms were small but comfortable and reasonably priced.
As i had driven down,they had parking near by which was very safe.The hotel is located near the local train station and the Chennai central railway station and Egmore railway station.
Buffet breakfast was limited but taste was good.The service staff and managers were friendly.I even got to meet the Vice President of the company !!!
The toilets were neat and clean,the only suggestion to Bell central is they can provide a latch in the toilet.The amenities were also good.Ideal for business travel or leisure travelers.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the road are less noisier..

This hotel is situated very near 200mt from chennai central railway station. The rooms and restaurant was good and clean. But there was lack of proper room service. In day time local trains runs frequently so when the train passes the building shakes like tremors of earthquake and there is noise of trains and also local traffic. But the service and quality of staying was worth for money. When you book this hotel ask for rooms near to reception and on 1st floor, so less disturbance
