The Columns

Kampot | Standard

The Columns is a delightful French-colonial style hotel in a quiet yet central location, perfect for exploring the riverside cafes and rambling markets of Kampot. Named after the pillars which form part of the hotel facade, the Columns combines the charm of a bygone era with modern comfort and efficient, friendly service.

Stepping through the stylish glass doors into the lobby, it feels as if time has stood still; from the elegant metalwork banister and checkered tiles to the inviting arm chairs and wooden ceiling fans, every detail has been designed to remind you of an age of art-deco glamour. The columns themselves continue into the restaurant area, where you can enjoy a cool drink or strong coffee while you escape the heat of the day, or sit on the shaded patio watching the comings and goings of the town.

The rooms are cool and cosy, combining art-deco fixtures and splashes of bright silk with crisp lines, pale walls and soft lighting. The en-suites are cleverly integrated to make the most of the space and well-placed windows bring light wherever possible, while the Deluxe Balcony rooms benefit from their own private terraces for enjoying the view over the rooftops.

Though the facilities are simple, they are well-delivered: the onsite bakery and cafe serve a good variety of dishes and fresh baked goods for breakfast, bikes and cars are available to hire and the welcoming staff are always on hand to help make your stay in Kampot a smooth and memorable experience.

We Say
A great central location and a charm reflective of the town itself.
