AVION is a newly reconstructed boutique hotel in the very heart of Brno. It is located in the historical city centre on Česká Street.
It offers comfortable accommodation in 37 rooms (77 beds) of various categories, a hotel restaurant and café, a museum and panoramic terrace.
It is one of the narrowest hotel compounds in Europe, built on the basis of plans by Czech architect Bohuslav Fuchs. The ten-storey terraced building, built on a narrow and deep plot of 8 x 34 m, is 40 metres high, offering a fascinating view of Špilberk Castle, the Cathedral of St. Peter and Paul in Petrov, and the entire city of Brno from the terrace on the top floor even today. The building is an exceptional feat of architecture and a national cultural monument.
Along with the Tugendhat Villa in Brno, it is a masterpiece of functionalist architecture. The Avion building, as a World Monument of Functionalism, is the subject of teaching at architectural universities from New York to Japan.
