Writing this from the hotel room (wi-fi works great by the way). I was looking for a hotel under $100 a night and I am pretty pleased so far with what we've got. The location is central, there's lots of restaurants up the street. Stumbled across a very nice dessert shop when looking for a place to eat last night (Juliettee st Chocolat, turn left out of the hotel). Getting here from airport is easy. Take the 747 bus from the airport and get off at stop 10. Room has a big king sized bed. Bathroom is clean. Everything you'd expect from a 3-star hotel.

Historical Traveler Reviews Albis Hotel Vrchlabi
Good, clean, friendly staff.
I stayed at this hotel with 5 friends during the Jazz Festival. Parking was convenient and the front desk staff all very friendly and helpful.
The rooms were spacious, clean and modern. Each of our rooms had a cable TV, iron, ironing board, air conditioner and hair dryer, though neither of our rooms had alarm clocks. (This was odd as the front desk had told me over the phone that they did.) The twin sleeper sofas in each of our rooms were in good condition, wider than an average twin, and very comfortable.
There was a mix up with our rooms and instead of 2 rooms with Queen beds and full baths, we got 1 of what we reserved and 1 with 2 full beds and shower bath. The front desk apologized and discounted the room for us (the mistake was made because they gave us two rooms next to each other).
The continental breakfast included coffee or tea and toast with jellies. Additionally, we ordered omelettes and crepes and the food was all tasty. Overall, the bar and restaurant were clean, modern and pleasant and the staff friendly and helpful.
The location is convenient to everything - the Berri/UQAM Metro stop is a block away, and Chinatown, Old Montreal, The Village, shopping on St. Catherine and all the Jazz Fest action are within walking distance. St. Denis is lined with cafes, bars and shops, though the hotel is on a very quiet block. We saw no prostitutes and felt safe coming and going after midnight.
I would definitely recommend the hotel if you want something clean, simple, well priced and convenient.
Worst hotel I have ever seen!
Don't be fool by the nice website and cheap price! You don't want to stay in this dump. You see prostitutes just steps away from the front door. As soon as we got to the hotel I realized I won't stay there. We just left our luggage for about an hour before I could look around and find another hotel. They charged us $60 for that 1 hour!! I was ready to pay more to get rid of that
A friend of mine recomended me this Hotel. For a very good price you get a very clean room, quiet at night, very professional employees and a restaurant-bar downstairs. I must say the resaturant looks very hip and artsy, I really liked it. The food is good, but to be honest is not the best compared to other restaurants around the area, but still good!
The waiters and waitresses are very friendly and quick to serve you.
I highly recomend this Hotel to someone who wants a good Hotel for a good reasonable price.

LOVE IT!!!!This is a great hotel for 20 ish to 40ish crowd!!!!!
Nice, inexpensive hotel in the heart of town!
My boyfriend and I have stayed here on our past two trips to Montreal for the Jazz Festival. The hotel is very basic, without lots of frills, but the price makes up for the lack of luxuries. The rates are great, parking is right around the block, and the front desk staff is always quick to help with any directions or suggestions you might need. There is a great restaurant downstairs, with the BEST breakfast in town. It's in a perfect location, right near the metro station, and walking distance from the Place Des Arts and the Village. The majority of the guests seemed to be around our age (25ish), but it was very quiet and low key, nonetheless. We brought friends with us this year, and we all agreed that for the money, Hotel St. Denis is the perfect place to stay. We will definitely be back for 2004!
I stayed there the first time in 1983
It is very close to Berri UGAM metro station.It is the center of the city.St. Denis street has some very nice restaurants.The Dupuis Mall is just around the corner.It has an excellant food court.I have stayed there about 15 times in the past 20 years,it almost feels like home.

I found the hotel to be very clean if basic but the point is to get out & see the city not hang out in the room. It covers all of the necessities, including shower & TV in the room without having to pay for the mint under the pillow. It's locat ion was great, short walks to the old quarter and St. Catherine street (Turn right for the gay night life, left for the straight night life). The city is well worth the visit and St. Denis is well located to make it a pleasant experience.
Basic, inexpensive hotel in a fun area
The hotel is in the Latin Quarter, close to a Metro stop. Lots of places to hang out withing walking distance, and it is very easy to get to other parts of Montreal by Metro. Management was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very basic, but clean. The room I stayed in didn't have a shower in the bathroom, instead there was a shared shower in the hall. Still, it was very clean and I never had to wait to use it. Other rooms have pprivate showers, I think. If you want a inexpensive hotel in a convenient area, I recommend here.
Hote St. Denis- Suckiest hotel in North America
I highly reccomend a trip to Montreal, especially for people aged 16 to 25. What I must warn you of however is a rathole posing as a hotel named the hotel st. Denis located on St Denis street. This is one of the worst "hotel"'s I have ever stayed at. To start off with we were advertised a reduced rate on their website, and they acted ignorant to the offer when we checked in. Next, the maid stole my friends clothes right out of the closet, than when we reported it a day later she snuck back in and hung them up on the closet. The scum bag owner didn't even care and he would not accomodate us when our toilet overflowed and spilled onto our rug. Stay away from this hotel at all costs it was a shitty touch to an otherwise cool trip.
Good Luck in your travels,
Sincerely, Hannibal Jenkins

... Niagra but we were not convinced. We then drove around the Upper Town where the citadel and Chateau are as well as the government buildings. It is a very attractive city and reminiscent of Paris. Disappointingly, the shopping was very average with a huge number of souvenir shops all selling the same crass stuff. After walking around the Lower Town, we headed back to the comfort of the ship. 17th May - Montreal. Early sailing along the river was very like sailing in Europe on ...
... a small garage for petrol, comfort stop and coffee. Wes was surprised by the taste of the coffee which was made with a pod in a machine. Washroom was equipped with an Australian style toilet with the water coming in form around the rim. Most toilets we come across as almost like plane ones which seem to suck the bowl contents out with force then fill up the bowl with water. Often the flushing mechanism is motion senor detected so it may ...
The bus trip took 5 and 3/4 hrs, which is nothing really; especially if you compare it to the 62 hr bus trip I once did from Bolivia to Argentina. There is no entertainment on Megabus.com (as they call themselves) though the seats are comfortable, and this was an express service from Toronto with only one stop in Kingston (not the one in Jamaica). One elderly Greek lady asked me to change seats with an even more elderly Greek lady (her relative) ...
... l'anxiété, la fatigue, le choléra etc. Bref, j'en ai bavé! Tant bien même que si j'étais parti il y a un an jour pour jour, mettons en janvier 2013, je serais parti en maudit, tanné, épuisé, en réaction, négatif, avec du ressentiment. Pas un beau tableau.
Mais depuis février dernier, la vie m'a fait cadeau de temps libre, d'une maîtrise en santé publique que je fais à la maison, de non-stress. Bref, une période privilégiée pour penser à mon petit ...
... Store genius guy who remembered me (like I said - not many redheads). He was going to make an appointment for me to see a different genius when he decided to plug my iPad and new charger in to one of the store sockets. It was charging!!!! Oh the relief! He told me that some hotels turn off alot of their power points. I did not know that. Came back to the hotel - plugged the iPad into a different socket and it started charging. Phew! Meanwhile Glen had ...
