The Adalbert Hotel is located in the heart of Břevnov Monastery, the oldest Benedictine monastery in the Czech Republic. It was founded in 993, under the rule of Duke Boleslav II of Bohemia who was St Wenceslas’s nephew. St Adalbert/ Vojtěch († 997), the second bishop of Prague, played an important role in the foundation of the monastery as well.
In its one-thousand-year history, the monastery has experienced periods of both prosperity and decline. The present baroque style basilica and adjacent buildings date back to the early 18th century.
The Adalbert Hotel occupies a U-shaped building, a part of the former convent built by Abbot Thomas Sartorius in 1668. The Sartorius convent is therefore the oldest above-ground building on the monastery grounds. It means it is older than the church and monastery convent dating back to the beginning of the 18th century.
A new stage in the life of this historically valuable building began with its reconstruction and transformation into a hotel in 2003. Since then it has been called by the second name of one of the founders of Břevnov Monastery—Adalbert.
