Overall our experience at the hotel was excellent. The location is perfect, close enough to all the sights, but the secluded entryway and courtyard make the property private and very quiet (though the rooms facing the trams might be fairly noisy, ours was quiet and lovely). Breakfast in the restaurant was delicious with a wonderful selection of hot and cold items. The property with it's inner courtyard is surprisingly large and truly lovely, it's quite deceptive from the street view, you would never know what lies behind the walls. The conceirge staff was extremely helpful with directions and restaurant suggestions, they also went of their way to deal with the airline on a lost luggage issue.
The only reason I cannot give a true 5 star rating pertains to the internet service in the hotel. At 500 CZK for a 24 hr period this is definitely the highest charge we have incurred in any high end hotel worldwide. Even more annoying was the connection was spotty at best, numerous attempts to log into sites would result in the connection timing out, at $25 per day one would expect a solid connection. We did mention it to the conceirge who advised that no one else reported the connection issues, and that the front desk would be advised. We were still charged though it was essentially of no use during our stay. Oddly, a visit to a local cafe provided wi-fi that worked with no issues and was entirely free. Other than this one glitch, I would highly recommend a stay at The Augustine, truly a hidden gem.
