The hotel is located at city center, can go anywhere easily by Uber. The room is very clean, toilet is modern style, the hot shower is working very well. The buffet breakfast is simple and a bit costly, we order by menu, then is reasonable. The hotel wifi is excellent. We would recommend to all tourist.

The Bell Chennai has well appointed rooms, and the services offered are looked after promptly . Its a value for money and the quality of our experience did not drop with the budgeted price. I appreciate the sincere work of the management in delivering a quality experience for the floating population in the metro city.
