Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Bangkok. Very close to Asok BTS and the Foodland shop was just next door to buy all your essentials from. The room was very clean and comfortable. We stayed on the 33rd floor and had a great view from our balcony. The staff were very friendly. Breakfast at the long table restaurant everyday was delicious and plenty to choose from. The Column pool was over looking the city and a great place just to sit back and relax. I would definitely stay at this hotel again, thank you for the pleasant stay.

Spent a night here on business trip. Very close to the office building I was visiting. Has a 24hr supermarket and eatery next to the hotel. Close by are massage places which are relatively cheap. There is a restaurant called Balee Laos which is super tasty, definitely recomended.

The room itself is very spacious. For the price I paid, I thought the room was very generous. And the view of the lake from 30th floor was just awesome. Make your way to level 25 and have a drink and watch the sunset. Its just breathtaking. And happy hour gives you buy one free one.

Definitely worth every star of a 4 star hotel.

Would like to share my recent experience, living in the Column for the past 3 days.

Firstly, and most importantly, the hotel's staff did nothing, absolutely nothing about the horrendous Absolut (yes the Vodka guys) party that took place two floors above my room (I was on the 40th floor). To compound the agony, all the hotel ever did was to slip a notice during the day of the event that a party was scheduled, where noise would be expected followed by the requisite apologies. No explanations, no details on the party (what time was it going to end?) no advance notice (I booked the hotel the night before checking in and there was no warning, no heads up whatsoever). The notice also afforded no alternatives whatsover. Zilch. Nadda.

Lo and behold, two floors down, I was awoken by deep thumping bass. At 1am in the morning. At 2 floors down. I proceeded to call reception who replied, in typical deadpan fashion (it wasn't even an explanation) that there was a party on the 42nd floor, hence the noise. There wasn't even an apology, except the feeling that I must be a moron for not realising that party = noise. Seeing that reception wasn't even bothered to provide a solution, I proceeded to request that reception politely forward my request to the 42nd floor that they turn down the volume. The only response then was that the party will end at 2am and if I would not like to be moved to another room. Who moves to a room at 1am in the morning!?!

The following morning, when I elected to raise this to the reception, it was more of the same. No response whatsoever. No even a stifled apology or explanation.

Simply appalling.

The next thing? Patchy wifi and equally patchy mobile network connections. At one point, the wifi completely stopped working for an entire morning. Calling reception, the person on the other end sounded exasperated, like I was interrupting her otherwise busy schedule.

And oh, the gym? Appalling, use it only if you're into antiquated, rusty, crowded equipment that were probably never maintained since they were acquired. Think of elbow-to-elbow treadmills, mixed with ellipticals, multi-gyms and a myriad of other equipment. It was an office cubicle meet gym environment. And from the looks of it, anyone and everyone gets a free pass to the gym, so be prepared for crowds.

Lastly, this is a hotel in Thailand, there should at least be friendly staff on hand. Sadly there were none.

great stay over December 2013.
Location is very good - away from the main road, but close enough to train stations (3 minutes walk to sukhumvit MTR or asok skytrain).
rooms are clean, good view next to a large park.
however, the best part is Foodland. 24 hour 'cafe' that serves everything from ribs and steak to Chinese and Thai dishes. and the taste is great as well. Foodland is just outside the door of column Bangkok.
other places closeby include Terminal21 shopping center, which has an amazingly cheap food court on the top level.
Love it!

We stayed in a one bedroom suite and LOVED it. First, the room was massive. By far the biggest room I have ever stayed in during my travels. Second, the view from the balcony was very impressive. In fact, the views from all the windows were great. The bedroom had views of a different side (we were in a corner room). The location was convenient next to BTS and the metro. The pool is nice, but it does close early and there is not a large area for you to lay out. Staff was great. I would certainly recommend this place to others.

Room Tip: High up for better view.
