The hotel Augustine sits on land between the Prague Castle and Charles Bridge, both of which are heritage gems and regarded as architectural masterpieces in the city. The castle – what’s said to be the largest coherent castle complex in the world – is home to precious crown jewels and tombs of some of Czech’s most famous kings.
Hotel Augustine's structure is a far cry from the façades of many luxury chain hotels; instead, it’s created from a set of seven buildings dating back to 1284, many of which are veiled in historical significance, including the entrancing 13th century Augustinian St. Thomas Monastery. The hotel is blessed with direct access to the monastery via a private Garden of Eden and its arcades.
If staying at Hotel Augustine, you can also choose to partake in private monk-guided tours of the monastery, the church, and the library, a one-of-a-kind experience to learn about the intricacies of monastic life.
