Stay in Luxurious, European Inspired Rooms

The Pivovar Hotel offers beautiful, cozy rooms with nods to the history and culture of the Czech Republic throughout. Our room had a spacious standing shower inside of a luxurious bathroom stocked with samples of their beer soap, beer body milk, shampoo and other hair products we could use during our stay. There were also complimentary robes and slippers so we could enjoy a spa experience from the comfort of our room. You’ll also find a comfortable bed and pillows, a variety of lighting options, a complimentary charging station, and accessible Wi-Fi and AC. Some of the rooms even feature copper bathtubs!

There are also designated rooms that are pet-friendly.

The Beer Spa

Interested in a relaxing experience that’s also one of the most unique things a hotel can offer? Pivovar’s beer spa is something that you cannot miss out on during your stay at the Pivovar Hotel this weekend. You are invited to take a private beer bath followed up with time to relax while you sip on the beer produced at the Pivovar’s downstairs brewery. There is also the option to book a massage as part of your beer spa experience! If you are skeptical about the idea of a beer spa, don’t worry; it is believed that soaking in beer yeast and hops can be beneficial for your skin and immune system due to its abundance of vitamins and nutrients.

The Brewery & Biergarten 

The Czech and Central European influences extend beyond the rooms of the Pivovar Hotel. There is also an on-site brewery that produces a variety of Pilsner lagers. Described as lighter and more refreshing than other beers, Pilsner has become a large part of Czech culture and is known for being some of the best in the world. This widely loved Czech beer is a must during your stay at the Pivovar Hotel this weekend and a great way to experience how the culture of the Czech Republic influences the hotel.

Another Central European tradition adopted by the Pivovar hotel is the biergarten, which you’ll find next to the brewery. We definitely suggest spending some time here during your stay. It is one of the most popular spots in Waco for people to hangout and socialize over a beer and some amazing food. The space overlooks Magnolia Market next door and is known to be a family-friendly environment, so bring your whole family!

A Full-Service, Fusion Restaurant & Czech Bakery

The full-service restaurant at the Pivovar Hotel incorporates the fun atmosphere of a brewery with a menu that combines both European and Texas flavors and styles of cooking.
