“Trés chic”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

My son and I stayed at the Hotel Gault for 2 nights in early August. We each got upgraded rooms which was a pleasant surprise. Overall, the service was excellent; however, there was no turn down service for my room on the second night. My only criticism pertains to the bathroom setup. There appeared to be a sliding door between the shower/sink/tub area and the bedroom area. i was never able to move the door even an inch. It was not a big deal to me because I was alone, but others might not want to take a bath with no privacy. In addition, the entire bath floor is covered with gray industrial carpet. They are clearly having difficulty keeping it clean. But these are small glitches and I enjoyed my brief stay a great deal. If I could give a 4.5 rating, I would. And I would definitely return. Great value.

This hotel is super cool. It is tucked away in Old Montreal and the building clearly shows it's age (in a good way) with interesting architecture. The rooms are more on the modern side and are simply enormous. Think of an old industrial building that was converted into a loft. My room didn't have a kitchen but there was enough room for one. Very cool artwork and definitely a hip feel to the place. The staff was very attentive and friendly. Stay here if you are in Montreal.

Staff are incredibly helpful and professional. Location is superb - walking distance to so many things and spitting distance from Le Metro.

The room decor is a little funky - but exactly as pictured on their website - my carpet needed a deep clean - that's the only perceived negative

I absolutely loved it, it's so modern with lots of concrete features and photographs and our room was huge and bathroom was even more impressive we had breakfast the first day there which wasn't exactly great but had few drinks late in the evening and the whole atmosphere was just super.

Perfect location to Old Montreal! The staff is amazing, helpful and they have all the "Ins" on where to go that the tourists have not yet discovered. This was our second time back within a year and I hope that we will have another lovely trip to this extraordinary city. The rooms are clean, large and very comfortable. The location cannot be beat. Restaurants are close by as is shopping, yoga classes (my personal fav) and the historic area for an education you will not regret! Safe neighborhood in walking distance to almost everything. The Metro is a 10 minute walk, easy to navigate and also safe to explore this wonderful city!

Room Tip: All the rooms we have had are lovely!

I am giving this hotel a 4 star review because of service. We were treated to excellent service from beginning to end. The front desk went above and beyond duty, finding us places to dine, things to do, and just generally helping us whenever we had a question or needed advice. And all done with a warm and friendly smile. On service alone I would return to this hotel. The lobby area is modern with interesting pieces of furniture spread about, may not please everyone but I love it. Our room was spacious (we were upgraded to a suite) with tall windows overlooking the streets of Old Montreal. Again, modern setting that I like very much but may seem cold to others. Clean, neat, and free wi-fi which was very easy to access and never crashed. My breakfast was exactly what I wanted, a big bowl of oatmeal. We will return!
