The Augustine Hotel Prague
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 travelers. 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 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.
Elegantes restaurant, housed in a glass covered courtyard, offers a truly refreshing and personalized dining experience, from the friendly service to the flavourful variety of our European Brasserie menu. Enjoy the private breeze and rejuvenating greenery on the restaurant’s cloister terrace. The St. Thomas Brewery Bar, housed in the cellar of the former St. Thomas’s brewery features stalactites and stalagmites that date back to the seventeenth century as well as an authentic underground water source that has been glazed over and incorporated into the design. A delicately lit floating terracotta floor has been laid to protect and highlight these unique surroundings. Tom’s Bar invites you for a touch of simple luxury, in a delightful barrel-vaulted double height hall featuring restored nineteenth century baroque frescoes with outside seating in the cloister terrace during summer.
