We recently spent a 3 day weekend visiting Montreal and came across the Jade Blue. We were impressed by many of the reviews but also skeptical because of a few of the others. I guess you have to put on your blinders on when driving/walking the 100 yards onto or off of Rue Bullion. Yes the location is a bit seedy, but once inside you would never know you just made such a find. The staff (Bettina & Amy) were such gracious hostesses, the breakfasts that they put out were delicious, they were great company to discuss all sorts of topics and quite knowledgeable about what to do & where to go.
After checking out we drove through the city and discovered other sites (B&B's) to consider for a future visit but for our next visit it was decided we would definitely return to the Jade Blue. Central to downtown we walked all over the place; to McGill University, to Chinatown, to the Old Port and we found that the Inn's central location won over the fact that it was so close to the underbelly of Montreal.
Be cautious of the parking situation, not because of the concerns mentioned in some of the other reviews where they reported break ins, but the parking patrol is very aggressive, after day one we found a lot about 3 blocks (5 minute walk away) that was well lit and reasonable priced.
