"Modern hotel in historic city"
Immediately upon entering, the design and overall aesthetic was apparent. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. From the stairway to the elevator lobbies, every detail was delightful, and appreciated. Our room was also a very nice experience. We had a loft, and the open feeling and layout was great. Two negatives only. The pocket door to the toilet room was warped and stuck. And the cabinets at the entry were never going to be used...

Wonderful time in Montreal in the winter. The Hotel Gault was the perfect place to stay--staff was warm and welcoming and very helpful. Recommendations for restaurants and things to do were great.

"Nice hotel in good location in Old Montreal"
My girlfriend and I decided to visit Montreal for a 4-day weekend. Based on reviews and location we decided to stay at the Gault Hotel. The hotel is conveniently located in Old Montreal, within easy walking distance of many interesting cultural attractions. We had a good time here, although honestly the room wasn't as nice as I had expected based on reviews. It just wasn't set up very well. Not nearly enough light, fridge inside a cabinet generating a lot of heat, carpets that slipped on a very slippery concrete floor. It was not bad, just not what I hoped for based on reviews and price. Still a solid hotel and we had a good time.

"Best Design Hotel in Montreal"
This hotel is extremely well designed, and every experience is thought out in detail for the guest. A real modern loft hotel inside a grand granite edifice in Old Montreal. But the experiences are what make it great. The LOFT style rooms (where we stayed this time) are a single space defined with well designed custom oak furniture and translucent curtains. bathroom sink, toilet and shower are each in different spaces allowing two people to use them simultaneously. Great surfaces, furniture, and quality.

"Lovely yet cold"
Being in the historic part if Montreal I expected a bit more old school charm. Yet the design and feel of hotel left us feeling a bit cold. If you are into modern minimalist then this place is for you. Staff is great, small boutique vibe great but lacked a bit of originality and character. We stayed in winter so the concrete ombiance was better suited for hot summer nights. I like the place but not sure I would go back. It lacks ooh la la. More ooh ok. Room was large a comfy.

"NO COFFEE IN ROOMS>"
This is the first 4 star hotel I've stayed in in recent years, worldwide, that has no coffeemaker in the room. I like to get up early, work in my pajamas, sip coffee. To order room service is intrusive and expensive. To go down to breakfast is intrusive and expensive. I was not pleased with this fact that there was no coffeemaker. This is an industrial-like, modern decor hotel. The rooms have cement floors with a large area rug and gossamer curtains separating the bed section from the bath section. The light near where the suitcase shelf is is shadowed by you when you try to find things in your suitcase. The two lights near the bed and the one by the small round table which is covered with glossy magazines so there is not much working space, were great, directional and bright. There is no clock except the one on the cable box. You have to leap up from the toilet to reach the toilet paper. Almost all the other patrons seemed young and hipper than I am. The steps to enter the hotel are steep and the bottom ones have no railing. On the plus side, there were bathrobes, and the whole building has huge windows. The neighborhood is quiet and hidden. The staff is very accommodating. But no coffee? Hmmm.

"great location"
The Hotel Gault is located at the edge of Old Montreal surrounded by old stone and brick structures. It's an old commercial building converted into a boutique hotel with only 30 units. In the lobby they have a bar with a few tables spread around for dining off their 24 hour menu. The staff is very helpful and attentive. My only problem is the room! Good size, good bed, good shower and we liked the French windows with flower pots overlooking the street. But the room has one wall that is old brick and the rest is either teak wood or walls painted battleship grey. The furniture reminded me of a college dorm! Mechanical erector-type lamps that were useless for any light and one chair for the desk and one chair at the table. Neither were comfortable for "relaxing". When I asked if there was a chair missing, they told me that all the rooms (except one) had only one chair but they would bring me another one. When I asked for a comfortable one...they brought me a straight backed dining room table chair. If someone would remodel the rooms to be comfortable and attractive, this would be a great place to stay!

"Nice Hotel, Great Location, Wonderful staff"
We stayed here on our honeymoon and got a suite. It wasn't really a suite- more like a very large regular room. It had one lounge chair and a desk area. Bed was good, bathroom was very nice. The best part though was the staff. They were very friendly and accommodating, found us restaurant reservations, and even told the restaurant on our first night that we were honeymooners, which resulted in free champagne and a great night. The hotel location was perfect for exploring old town. We also could walk to Mont Royal and downtown areas- long walk but doable. I definitely recommend.

Convenient, close to metro and walking distance to Notre Dame. Staff are very helpful, welcoming and friendly. They make up the room twice a day, so when you get back to your hotel in the evening, your slippers are right by your bedside, clothes are folded and a bottle of water ready for you. Amenities are very good. Wi-fi was free. However, we can hear people next door (conversations and kids crying). All in all it was a great stay.

"It's OK but I wont be back"
My husband went to Montreal to see our daughter who is a student there. We usually stay at another hotel closer to campus. We thought we would change and get a few more days and make it special. It is certainly walking distance to the old port, and quiet though we were awaken by drunks yelling in the street at night. The room are very stylish with some sort of linen fabric on the floor everywhere, and I mean everywhere even surrounding the toilet, so it left me wonder what were those stains on the floor. I could not get past that impression. The breakfast was OK, but I had the parfait and I even asked the waitress (one) as to what fresh fruits they were using, I was told berries. I ordered it and there was not one fresh fruit in the parfait unless you count the thing fanned on top of the martini glass where I got a couple of layers of yogurt and granola, overpriced and not worth the money. I booked this instead of an auberge because they advertised a gym (no picture on the website) The gym is super tiny with an elliptical and a treadmill. Ok for one person, not for two at a time. The staff is very young and very nice and willing but the feeling of attentiveness to detail is not there. Bottom line is that I found this hotel overpriced and I won't be back. I will be back at the Sofitel.

Situated on a quiet street in a convenient location (two blocks away from the metro and walkable to many of the interesting areas of Montreal) Hotel Gault could not have been better. A beautiful hotel with a staff that couldn't do enough. We had a corner room which was spacious, comfortable bed and great seating area. Room service was excellent and we had breakfast in our room almost every day. Had a nightly drink at the small bar served by Steph who was charming and entertaining. We will be back.

If anyone wants to experience the beauty of historic Montreal, you must stay at the Hotel Gault. Its right in the heart of Old Montreal, with all the cobblestone streets and horse carriages. The hotel itself was outstanding, The outside reflected the historic beauty of the area while inside was modern and chic. The rooom was spacious and well decorated but what made the trip the best was the service. All the staff went out of their way to fulfill evey request - from getting the car quickly to providing their expertise of the City. Everytime we we're leaving the staff wanted to know if we needed help, a bottle of water, and refreshments. I am going back soon.

"Fantastic Hotel"
Hotel Gault was wonderful. The hotel was a renovated building from about 100 years ago with updated amenities but with a lot of character. The staff was great and always willing to help with dinner options, etc. The location was also great. While it was technically considered part of Old Montreal, it was steps away from the downtown which means that it was not touristy like the main part of Old Town. The hotel was also a five minute walk to the subway which was great.

My wife and I were looking for a hotel in the old quarter yet having the modern interiors. This hotel fits the bill 100%. We were very impressed with all architectural detail as well as the design of the room. It was a very generous room with large coffee table and two comfortable chairs. They even had an umbrella available in the room with robes and slippers. The staff was helpful but not as knowledgeable as I wanted. The service was lovely and thoughtful. They even had cookies for the evening turndown. The breakfast was lovely and the waitress was charming. The ran out of fresh croissants and they went to a nearby bakery to get them for us. That's the type service above the norm. Next time we go to Montreal I will definitely stay there. We had two great nights at the hotel.

My husband and I stayed here for our wedding anniversary and had such a romantic time staying at this hotel! The room had very modern décor, comfortable and chic. It's the little touches like bringing us cookies when we first checked in and deliciously strong coffee in the lobby that make all the difference. The hotel staff was extremely warm and hospitable. Especially the valet… he went above and beyond to ensure we were settled in. Even when he brought the car to us to leave, he left 2 bottles of water in the car for our long drive back to Boston. The location is amazing – we were able to walk everywhere and take bixi bikes to explore the city. Can't wait to come back to Montreal to stay here again.
