Hotel Description
Conveniently located in Prague’s picturesque Malá Strana district, The Augustine, the quintessence of Prague’s history, character and beauty is close to the majestic Prague Castle, the Wallenstein Garden, the famous Charles Bridge and within easy reach of the city’s many colourful tourist attractions, making it an ideal choice for business and leisure travellers. The design of the interiors was accomplished by the London-based design company RDD, together with Olga Polizzi, The Rocco Forte Collection’s Director of Design. The hotel is also in close proximity to Prague’s commercial district and Prague’s Ruzyne International Airport is a 30-minute drive away.

The 101-bedroom property including 16 suites has been created from seven buildings, many of which have historical significance, including the 13th century Augustinian St. Thomas’s Monastery, after which the hotel is named. Several practicing monks still live in a separate part of the monastery, adjacent to the hotel grounds.
The guests may benefit from the direct access to the neighboring St. Thomas’s Church and exclusive rental of the adjacent Wallenstein Garden for the ultimate summer events and wedding receptions.

The hotel’s elegantly designed bedrooms all boast stunning views over the courtyards, the monastery chapel or Prague Castle. The suites include an impressive 150sqm The Charles Suite and The Tower Suite, located in the monastery’s astronomical tower. All rooms feature a range of decorative accessories inspired by 1930’s Czech cubism, many of which are reproductions from Czech design specialist Modernista, including timber chairs by Pavel Janak and chaise-lounges by Adolf Loos in some of the larger rooms.

The Monastery restaurant will have 90 covers and will overlook a large courtyard with outside seating during the summer months. Guests will have the choice of two bars; Tom’s Bar, located in the monastery’s former barrel-vaulted double-height hall and The Brewery bar, housed in the cellar, in the former St. Thomas’s brewery building, complete with seventeenth century stalactites and stalagmites. The Brewery bar has cubist inspired Vlastislav Hofman-designed chairs which are complemented by the angular bar.

For relaxation, the hotel’s spa will feature four treatment rooms, a hammam offering special heat treatments, sauna, steam room, relaxation area and an 80sqm fully-equipped gym.

Guests will also be able to enjoy exclusive tours of the Church’s magnificent private library.

For those who want to venture outside of the city walls, the surrounding area boasts some fantastic countryside, castles, palaces, gardens and mountains. The hotel’s concierge would be more than happy to organise day trips outside of the city.
