We had a pleasing stay at Genting Star Shanghai. The staff at the counter is nice. We didn't encounter any check-in problems. It is our first time in Shanghai so we really appreciated the staff's more-than-willing attitude of teaching us directions. We speak mandarin so it probably contributed to our smooth conversations with the staff. Housekeeping personnel is also nice. We booked 2 rooms, one with windows and the other had none. We were surprised that the room without windows was as good as the room with windows. The air conditioning unit in one of our rooms is noisy but is tolerable. Both rooms are not spacious but are very clean. The bed is comfortable. We loved the shower for its forceful water flow. The hotel's location is OK since convenience stores, restaurants, and the subway station are of walking distance to the hotel. There is a restaurant just beside the hotel and it served tasty food at an affordable price.

While the furniture and facilities could use some cleaning and tlc the apartments are in a great location to walk right to the subway and be anywhere quick. The building has a handicap accessible ramp and is in a decent neighborhood close to all you need. The cleaning and maintenance staff could use some retraining, but, you get what you pay for, a small finished apartment with all you need to cook and wash your clothes. If you are new to Chinese play with the buttons in the bathroom a bit the heated shower is a true treat.

We stayed here for five nights and enjoyed how centrally located it was. The staff were very helpful and our room was just what we needed. The air conditioning was our favourite part as it was very warm during our stay in Shanghai and we appreciated being able to control the temperature in our room - which wasn't the case in many other hotels!

"Great hotel in non city area with local atmosphere"
We were very comfortable in this hotel, specifically chosen as it was not in traditional tourist location. Breakfast is very basic but adequate to our needs, having a refrigerator & electric kettle in room along with supermarkets close by meant we could have extra supplies of favoured items. Variety of local restaurants and great bakery along with other local shops easy to walk to.Tours were organised through Expedia and pick up at this hotel was not a problem.
Hotel provided vehicle and driver to Pudong Airport on last day at cost of RMB250 well worth this cost, great trip also.

The hotel had everything I needed and my room was clean. The furniture was a bit worn and shabby and the hallways could do with updating as the carpet is stained. My main difficulty here was the fact that the staff spoke no english. It made it difficult checking in and when my internet stopped working but overall I would stay there again.
The maids clean the floors of your room everyday and give fresh towels and new soap, toothbrushes etc.
The room could benefit with a wardrobe as I just had to live out of a case with a couple of hangers.

I recently had a 5 night stay at the Donghu Guest house and would highly recommend it! It was super cheap (but not in a nasty way) and the rooms were very clean, well maintained and the air conditioning was very efficient during the summer heat. The hotel is conveniently located right next to Huaihai Road (brilliant for shopping), in between 2 Metro stations which makes getting around really easy. People's Park is only 2 stops away for 3RMB. Donghu Street itself, is packed with lots of little restaurants, bars and massage/beauty parlours and if you venture up to Changle Road you can find lots of cute little shops with a local feel. I really enjoyed my stay (and the area in general) and will definitely stay here again!

Hotel staff have been brilliant, room was great, king size bed, Wifi Internet in room. It's walking location to places is excellent, the Bund 200m away, Grandmothers restaurant close by. Old town is a easy 10 min walk, 10 min walk to East Nanjing metro.
Biggest disappointment was Expedia's map show hotel at west end rather than eastern end of Guangdong rd.

The Xinhui hotel is an excellent Chinese style hotel. By Chinese style, I mean that you should expect as rather firm mattress, which local belief holds to be more healthy, and that the decor may not be what you expect from a more internationally styled hotel. Also, since this is not a high rise in the increasingly vertical megalopolis of Shanghai, do not expect a grand vista from your window.
But, the hotel staff is very friendly, even if your Mandarin is as bad as mine and presumably if you speak none at all. The rooms are completely clean. Everything is above board. And you can't beat the price. Plus it is in a rather interesting artsy area, not far from the excellent Shanghai Metro. It is also about a block's walk from a true local food market where I dare you to find another tourist.
