We have just spent 6 nights at The Columns hotel in Kampot. Cannot fault it in any way. The room was lovely, facing the street (room 3). Wifi and aircon both worked very well. Breakfast was good, with eggs cooked to order. The staff were extremely helpful and were always around with a welcoming smile. The hotel is very central,...

We had a three nights stay at the Columns. Our room with balcony wasnt big (sloping roof), but we had enough space for the two of us and our luggage. The room was very clean and the (easy style) balcony got sun almost the whole day. The people working here are more than friendly. Attentive and helpful people in a...

Great setting in a well renovated building, in a calm street. Family run, one feels at home at once. Lovely artwork, excellent breakfast and staff ready to help and advise. A very good option in Kampot.

Small lovely hotel that is good if you want to see Kampot. Like most Cambodian boutique hotels, there isn't much when it comes to facilities but overall the rooms are clean and the hotel has that quaint rustic vibe to it.

Centrally located hotel. We had initially booked a deluxe balcony room. (Room 14) Upon arrival it turned out to be a very small room. In the middle of the room they had placed a glass cube: the shower. The balcony was a narrow strip, enclosed by a wall and no furniture, so you could not even sit outside. In the...

We stayed here two nights in December. After initial hick ups (or booking confirmation email apperently didn't make it to the manager) we were still lucky to get a room here. The superior room was nice but as far as I could see not really superior to the standard room which looked decent. The breakfast was delicious, staff was really...
