I'm very thankful to front office executive whose name is Green for his invaluable assistance. He speaks good English and helped to arrange my trip to Suzhou and advised me on how to get around Shanghai. His advice helped me to save a lot of money on transportation.

I know this looks like a nice cheap hotel in the pictures but this is not the case- I'm sure the pictures were taken at least 30 years ago.
The hotel is disgusting and old. In our bedroom when we arrived, I'm sure if the floor had been swept. After a few days, we wanted out sheets changed so we took the sheets and covers off, only to reveal wee stains all over the duvet and the bed. Also, the bed was hard as nails. I think it was just wood in the middle of it. When new sheets were put on, they too were stained and had holes in them- they also weren't ironed (maybe I'm asking for too much here?)
The walls were also peeling at every point.
The cleaning staff were friendly, although they did not understand any English. And the reception staff also did not understand any English so we stopped asking them for help as they couldn't and didn't seem to want to help us.
My honest review is that, unless you're a backpacker looking desperately for somewhere to stay, do not stay here.

Shower was broken but was fixed within 10 minutes of my complaint. Hotel is cheap but the location is slightly inconvenient for general tourist purposes. Breakfast was adequate but not excellent. Macao Dollar restaurant next door has excellent hot pot meals, with English menu if required. Convenience store nearby for buying water bottles and other items. Hotel bar and sauna were closed the entire time I was there.
Metro is half a mile away (Huang Xing Lu station on line 8). Write down the hotel phone number to give to your taxi driver when you first arrive since the map on the hotel website is poor. Once you check in the hotel card can be shown to taxi drivers with no problems.

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!

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.
