  • The Refectory Bar, once the eating hall of the Augustinian monastery, which features a double-height ceiling with restored Baroque frescoes contrasted by modern, playful decor.
  • The Tower Suite, housed in the former astrological tower, with three floors connected by a spiral staircase offering 360-degree views of Prague.
  • The hotel's tour of the monastery, where four monks currently live


Housed in an ancient monastery, Augustine manages to mix contemporary, uniquely Czech design elements with its historically serene surroundings. Located in the Mala Strana district, at the foot of Prague Castle and adjacent to the Wallenstein Palace, the hotel is also within walking distance to such restaurants as Café Savoy and U Modré Kachnicky. As for the monks who used to live in the monastery, part of the hotel complex is reserved for the few who still live here, making the history of this special property come to life (the hotel can arrange tours of their quarters).

The hotel has 101 spacious guest rooms decorated in green or orange hues, all differently laid out. Though none offer river views, as the former monastery is tucked into the neighborhood's low-rise buildings, some guest rooms boast views of Prague Castle or the St. Thomas Monastery, which is particularly lovely when illuminated at night. The entrance and façade is hidden on the side of a busy road with a blind corner, so be sure to book at least a Deluxe category room or higher, as all Classic rooms directly overlook this road and guests may experience noise issues.

Augustine has a small spa and two restaurants. There’s an outdoor alcove off the restaurant where guests can have coffee or drinks year-round; in colder months the hotel provides blankets and space heaters (don't miss trying the St. Thomas beer, which the monks at the Augustine brew). The staff here is attentive and helpful, especially the excellent concierge team who go out of their way to assist guests.

Who Should Stay

Return visitors to Prague who want a great value option that has a great sense of place with a location in the romantic, cobblestoned neighborhood of Mala Strana.
