Rocco Forte's Augustine opens in Prague

101-room property welcomes first guests today

The Rocco Forte Collection's new Prague property, The Augustine, has opened in the Czech Republic capital today.

The 101-room hotel has been created from a set of seven buildings, including the 13th-century Augustinian St Thomas's Monastery, after which the hotel is named.

The Augustine offers four private spaces for exclusive events, dinners and meetings as well as a large 196sqm ballroom in a double-height vaulted hall.

The hotel also offers a spa, the Monastery restaurant, which seats up to 90 and overlooks a large courtyard, with outside seating during the summer months.

There are also 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 17th century stalactites and stalagmites.
