The hotel is at an excellent location with just a 10 minutes drive from both the stations. The food is outstanding and the service excellent. The room was comfortable and cosy. The staff was helpful and very polite.

Well, what to say about this hotel, if i say something about it then it would be very very less, this hotel is very excellent place to stay when in chennai, with very helpful and friendly staff, well appointed room, will every appliances up to date, well maintained restaurant, with very very tasty food. And the main choice is that it is a Budget hotel, It is located walk able distance from Chennai Central railway station. Nearest Mall is Spencer & EA mall.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good and you will get good sleep.

Dear All Business Travelers
This si an excellent hotel, central so you can travel anywhere in chennai, further the rooms maybe small but extremely comfortable. They provide excellent care in terms of hospitality and food. Prices are economical and would not hurt the pocket. All in all i would not change my hotel anymore.

Not much more to say. It was clean but lacking in character. all doubles will be at the back of the hotel by the train lines and trains thunder past at all hours. Avoid the top floor as the building shakes with each passing train. Restaurant was quite good and we ate there more than once. Be prepared for the waiter to hover and re-fill your plate and glass after virtually every mouthful though!

Room Tip: Avoid the top floor as the building shakes with each passing train.

Dear Guest,

We thank you for sharing your stay experience with us.

We at Bell Chennai, narrowed down the cause for late refilling of the dishes as lack of manpower in that particular shift in both Restaurant and Main Kitchen. We promise you that we have taken alternate measures to handle this type of situation in future when it happens.

Best hotel near Central Railway Station. Only problem with this hotel is they have only limited items in buffet. Apart from that the hotel is good to stay. Room tariffs are also affordable. This is one of the good hotels I have stayed in Chennai. The tariff also less when you compare with other hotels located near by.

The Bell was our first stop in India.We had a lot of things to sot out about what to do and where to go.The staff at the Bell we extremely helpful and assisted with everything we needed.
The location,the food and the comfort were excellent.
Particular thanks should go to the dining room staff for their helpful suggestions and the front office who were helpful and obliging no matter what the time of day or night.
Great variety of transport at the door.Liked the idea of a small bar next door.
