Every luxury is afforded to The Augustine’s ample, minimalist rooms – although the heated marble bathroom floors would have surely been the stuff of fantasy for the monks who once lived in this 13th-century monastery. In fact, four Augustinian brothers still reside in another part of the complex, which guests can explore as well as an adjacent Baroque church.
The Augustine sits in the middle of Prague’s Lesser Town – also home to a vast 9th-century castle that looms impressively above – and it takes only a short walk across the winsome Charles Bridge to reach the cobbled Old Town, equally steeped in medieval history. Yet the hotel yields more distractions of its own: a vaulted hall that serves as a bar, with cloisters given a contemporary update as terraces; a working brewery founded in 1352; and tours of the library’s endless shelves of vellum-bound tomes. The only question – where to start?
