Chennai is well known for its culture and heritage and while searching for a suitable hotel in Chennai I opted for a hotel that reflected the heritage of the place. Finally I came upon Hotel Bell Chennai, Chennai, which I felt was the right place for me. It is quite near to the railway station, and the cab sent from the hotel took me there within a few minutes.
Bell Central is a building that dates back to 1930s and the hotel is in this building complex. As it is in the heart of the city, every place is easily accessible from the hotel. Chennai International Airport is only 19 km from the hotel. as I stepped into the reception area, I was given a warm welcome by the staff and was taken to my room in the first floor. I saw that the room is well furnished and tastefully designed and had all the modern amenities. It was very hot outside and the Ac I the room cooled me, along with the welcome drink.
The bathroom was neat and there were toiletries and clean towels inside. I had a quick bath and by the time I came out it was almost 12.30 pm. I went down and reached the restaurant Madras Tramway, which I saw was a multi cuisine restaurant. Since Chennai was well known for its vegetarian food, I opted to have a typical Tamilian lunch on banana leaf. The lunch was wholesome with hot and steaming rice, sambar, pickles and a wide variety of other curries. There was also the ‘payasam’ which is a sweet dish taken after lunch. I had my fill and came out to explore the hotel.
The Hotel Bell Chennai,chennai consists of three floors with 49 rooms. The travel desk at the hotel was very helpful as I had no idea what to see and where to visit. I got all the tips from the travel desk. They even arranged cabs for my sightseeing. I had a pleasant three day stay at the hotel and on the fourth day I checked out of the hotel, taking fond memories of my stay here. Having a passion for photography, I had taken many photographs of the hotel and places that I visited in Chennai.
