|Core business:||The Rocco Forte Hotels is a five-star hotel in the heart of the Czech Republic capital, in the immediate neighbourhood of Prague Castle. The 101-room property is created from a complex of secen buildings, most of which are historical monuments. The largest and most important structure is St Thomas's Monastery, which dates to the 1400s.
The Monastery provides the hotel with a picturesque setting of established courtyards and elegant garden squares, while retaining certain areas for the practising Augustinian friars who remain in situ. Key historic features such as cloistered terraces, wooden ceilings, wine vaults and stone arches will be incorporated into the hotel design. New additions includes a tranquil courtyard entrance, accessible by car from Letenska Street, and a glassed-in courtyard, which will become the hotel's main restaurant complete with two protected trees. Rocco Forte Hotels is worked on the Prague hotel with locally-based architect Martin Kotik, a partner in Architects Studio Omicron-K, and London-based interior designers, RDD, who have also been assisting on Brown's Hotel in London. The interiors were overseen by Rocco Forte Hotels's Director of Design Olga Polizzi and reflect the hotel's location.
