Column Bangkok is a hotel in the area of Sukhumvit with ridiculously large rooms including a kitchen and laundry facility. And the best thing: it’s very affordable! We stayed two nights earlier this year and got a room with an amazing view over the high-rise buildings. The view from the pool is even more spectacular, but the pool area was not too exciting so we didn’t spend much time there.
Sukhumvit is probably the best area to stay in Bangkok and the hotel is located close to the sky train station, Terminal 21 shopping center and the famous red-light district Soi Cowboy. Below are some pictures of our room and nearby attractions.
Huge room with windows all the way down to the floor.
Spectacular view from the pool on the 25th floor.
Just across the street is a Korean BBQ place with a delicious set of pork menu. The staff will help you with the cooking if you’re not used to this kind of dining.
The breakfast is served in the restaurant called Long Table on the same floor as the pool.
The breakfast was OK.
Breakfast at the 25 meters long table.
At night you can chill with a cocktail by the long table or in the pool area enjoying the sunset.
Later at night, you should include a visit to the famous Soi Cowboy (if you’re in Bangkok without kids).
Just opposite Soi Cowboy is Terminal 21 — one of the most popular shopping centers in Bangkok.
