London, United Kingdom, 2009/05/13 - iBAHN, today announces that it has completed a full High Speed Internet Access (HSIA) installation at The Augustine in Prague, incorporating both wired and wireless connectivity.
Guests to the new hotel, part of the Rocco Forte Collection, and located in the heart of the picturesque Malá Strana district and near the majestic Prague Castle, can now enjoy wired access in the hotel’s 101 guestrooms, as well as wired and wireless access in conference rooms and the public areas. iBAHN has also provided internet stations in the Business Centre as well as two laptop connection points.
The Augustine is a popular choice for the premium business traveller who values connectivity services highly in their preferred hospitality destination. Offering guests the ability to confidently access the internet, with a high quality of service and 24/7 multi-lingual technical support, is a crucial objective for the Rocco Forte Collection, which is why iBAHN is installed in each of the group’s properties.
Travellers requiring access to their corporate networks as well as those surfing the internet for pleasure will also find the highest standards of data security through iBAHN’s Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) solution, which eliminates the ability to steal guest data and provides total separation between different wireless users.
Henning Matthiesen, General Manager of The Augustine, comments: “Our guests prioritise access to high speed and secure internet facilities, as a result we had to find a partner who would get things right the first time and with as little disruption as possible. iBAHN’s robust HSIA services and support have proved to be extremely successful in our sister Rocco Forte hotels and therefore we had no hesitation in selecting their services for The Augustine.”
Graeme Powell, Managing Director EMEA, iBAHN, adds: “The Augustine is a beautiful example of Prague’s great history and character, and with the addition of iBAHN’s services it now also offers guests a range seamless connection options, meaning it offers an attractive blend of benefits for the modern traveller. The Augustine is the perfect choice for our first entry into the Czech market and further strengthens our partnership with Rocco Forte who have selected iBAHN for each of their hotels to date.”
