Value for Money, clean modern room

Helpful and friendly staff, modern clean room, nice shower
As a western single woman, I appreciated that the staff looked out for me. My room was right next to the elevator, away from the loud boisterous male crowd up all night in the hallways. They also made sure I did nor overpay for a cab/tuktuk, and even helped me with getting a sim card for my phone. The air conditioning "white noise" hid any rumble from the trains and there were plently of English channels on the LCD TV. Although the neighborhood is near Central Railway, it is not the best, but the hotel is like a refuge. My only gripe is having to pay by the hour for an unreliable internet. This should be free, as is standard in almost all hotels around the world.

Clean, Business Hotel
The room and the hotel interior was great. Clean and decent environment. Good working aircond and confortable bed and bath. Downside - Breakfast is same every day and limited choice. Room at the end of corridor is a little far from the reception. No free internet and the service is expensive. For the price of the hotel, the internet and breakfas should be upgraded. Few minutes walk to Chennai Central Station and can even walk to Egmore station. Great location. Easy bus & train.

Modern hotel, down the street from train station

Clean, modern, air conditioned
professional and helpful staff- even boxed up a package for me. room was a single, small but very comfortable bed and hot shower. restaurant is ok. you have to take a taxi to a good restaurant. this is my second stay here. one downer is that you have to pay for internet.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Beware the tuk-tuks- they will charge as much as they can. Ask the desk first what the fare should be.

A little noisy

The hotel is located between a road and a railway track. If the window to your room faces the railway track, you will be able to hear the blaring of horns from the regular trains that pass by the track. But it was not something that will affect you so much to the point that you cannot sleep as most of the time, you just hear the trains go by, without any blaring of horns. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the room for the price I paid. The bed-sheets however had some blood stains (tiny dots and a bigger patch under the blanket). I could overcome these as there were no bed-bugs in the end (as I had thought when I saw the tiny blood-stains). Hreakfast - no good choices. Just a few dishes had food, the rest were empty. But overall, I had not much complaints.

Great service and a nice stay

It was my first time to Chennai and the front desk staff really helped me plan my trip. It was a very relaxing stay with no complications at all. Great price and great service

Clean Hotel,great location

Very good value,very good staff,extremely clean,very close to railway station.
It becomes very difficult to comment about good hotels. The BELL HOTEL is one of those. In a nation that is so dirty and poor it is hard to get a good cheap hotel. The BELL meets all the needs of the modern independant traveler. A welcoming door porter. Polite and efficient check-in staff. Large very clean room with ensuite, and sweeping sound proof window over looking the street. Lots of bench space, and top matress.[good quality] Chennai not much of a city,but the Bell Hotel makes it worth while and being handy to Central station a good place for a rest and stop-over.I will be back,I have more to see in India, and Chennai,The Bell Hotel, airport,and railway station a good entrance.

Nice hotel, excellent service.

The staff here are very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant is also the best place to eat in the area and has reasonable prices - 4 USD for a curry and rice or naan. This hotel was recently renovated after a change in ownership, so the interiors are modern and clean. The WATER PRESSURE is the best I've had in years, in any country!!! The hotel is located 2 minutes walk from the main train station. The street is very busy, so that is the trade-off.

Good hotel that justifies the price

Quite centrally located next to shopping malls and train station
The room was smaller than seen in picture but was clean and comfortable. The toilet is also clean. Only the train sounds can be heard but they are not that loud considering hotel next to tracks. Good svc from front desk Suresh who try's his best to help you. The food was ordinary, nothing to rave about though.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Try not to take the auto from outside the hotel as they will charge you a lot. Try call taxi- Fast Trek as they are reasonably priced with packages. If need to go nearby shopping malls like Express Avenue, suggest you take auto further from hotel
