The perfect combination of history and modernity in the heart of Prague
Occupying a series of buildings that were once a 13th-century monastery in Prague’s picturesque Lesser Town, Augustine, a Luxury Collection Hotel, embodies the history and character the city is famed for.
Despite its monastic history, the hotel is anything but austere. The 101 Olga Polizzi-designed rooms and suites are an elegant blend of Czech Cubism, rich fabrics and warm wood floors, woven into which are subtle nods to the property’s past. All boast views over the rooftops or into the gardens and courtyards, but the most spectacular is undoubtedly the three-floor Tower Suite, located in a former observatory.
A number of friars still live on site and offer twice-weekly tours of the monastery, church and library, offering a unique insight into monastic life.
Alternatively, one can sip cocktails under restored baroque frescos in The Refectory Bar, dine on seasonal European cuisine and Czech specialties in the glass-roofed restaurant, or try the St Thomas Beer Body Ritual at the spa.
