The Seventh Heaven Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is around the budget end of the market but it is so central it is just amazing. It is the 7 to 15 floor above shops and offices. Nothing odd for the Chinese. It is clean and could do with a bit of TLC but the location is just fantastic. On line 2 so easy reach from the airport and the location is walking distance for most tourist spots, shops and food is on your doorstep, literally. Metro is so cheap and is easily accessible from this hotel. If it's your first time to Shanghai and can't afford much then this is a good base. Breakfast was included; not to my liking, basic but then there is so much choice around. All receptionists seem to speak English, added bonus.

Once you´re able to find the Hotel and realize that it is on the top a clothing store you're safe. Located on "the street" Nanjing Road, a couple of blocks from the metro station. The Seventh Heaven is a very affordable Hotel with decent buffet breakfast and free wifi. Breakfast is more than ok, they offer western and chinese dishes. Beds are comfortable. Rooms are on the not-so spacious side, but are enough for those who just need a nice and clean place to sleep. Not the Hotel for those who are into swimming pools and working out while travelling.

This hotel is EXACTLY what I wanted! It was right on the busy pedestrian street, East Nanjing Road. The Bund was a short (10-12 minute) walk; People's Square/Park were less than 10 minutes away, which was ideal for catching the efficient metro! The room was basic but comfortable. Breakfast was quick and filling!

Good value for money. In between two subway stations (East Nanjing Road and Peoples Square) plus a ten minute walk to the Bund. Very quiet considering it's central location. Breakfast was quite good and included in the room rate - although you order from a menu, not a buffet so not very big portions. Room was clean and spacious. Only downside was that beds were made on the second day but our water and toilet paper was not replaced as is standard by housekeeping.

the location is the best in nanjing road for me. the room is great. a bit smelly but toiletries are good. the only bad thing is they dont provide kettle and coffee sachets. the facilities could be better. the aircon is a bit weird. anyway. nice hotel!

the location is nice as it is between west and east Nanjing road. safe even you get home late as Nanjing road is well lit. the only thing I hate about this hotel is there is no aircon. imagine the cold weather outside and when you enter your room it is so suffocating due to no aircon inside the room. when asked about this, the receptionist told me that I should have asked if there is an aircon before we checked in. crazy right? as we expect that all hotels have aircon. and to add, when I went to talk to the house keeping attendant, her room is so cold and have an aircon opened. value for money? the room is nice, but again since there is no aircon paying 900yuan a night is not worth it.

Very good location. About 5 mins to people's park station and taking a bit longer abt 7 mins to east nanjing station while going to the bund is about 15 mins by foot. Surrounded with many restaurants & shops. The view from our room is nice as we could see people walking along the Nanjing pedestrian. At the hotel entrance downstairs there is a small kiosk where you could buy train tickets. Breakfast is very very basic. Bread, jam, butter, boiled rice, salted peanut, pickle, fruits and 1 hot dish is served to the table as you choose. The window of our room wasnt closed properly.

Location can't be beat. Right on the main mall and hop on hop off bus stop at the door. 7 steps up to the entrance then lift to 7th floor reception. Western food outlets like Pizza Hut KFC Maccas literally just across the mall, along with Pharmacy and major upmarket stores. Staff spoke English but were not very friendly. Their hospitality skills were totally lacking. They did the minimum requirements to check you in and that was it. The room was on the 8th floor and contained 2 single beds which were very hard by western standards. The bathroom had a shower over a tall bath but it did have a support rail on the wall to assist. There was a mouldy shower curtain and there was a lot of mould on the tiles over the bath. The water is very slow to drain out of the bath. Complimentary toothbrush,comb and shower cap supplied but only one small cake of soap. The TV has 2 English language stations only. There is a water bottle cooler/heater supplied but the cold water always comes out warm. There is a bar fridge and adjustable air con. 2 tea bags are supplied but no milk or sugar or spoon. The windows were filthy and did not latch close property. There was a sliding class screen in front of the window with sticky tape to hold things together. The putty around the window pains had pealing paint and was all breaking away. Breakfast for westerners was choice of scrambled or fried eggs with baked beans and hash browns. You a given 2 slices of bread with jam & butter. Toaster available. Only choice of 2 cereals but only hot milk offered. Tea supplied was not drinkable. Orange cordial available at room temperature. Staff in the restaurant have extremely limited English and no smiles are ever seen. If you can over look these shortcomings and only want a short stay for something right on the mall then this may suit. Howard Johnson Hotel was only a 1 min walk away if you wanted a more upmarket hotel.

The hotel is placed right in the middle of the busiest street of Shanghai - East Nanjing Road. The rooms were very clean and the cleaning team always did a good job. The only downside was that the staff didn't really speak english which made it hard for us to communicate our wishes to them. The beds were very comfy though!

The location of the hotel is simply perfect for tourists: in the heart of the city, close to shopping, restaurants, attractions, etc. But the Hotel itself is quite disappointing: My room was although quite big and clean, but gave the feeling of something old and dark. The smell of chemicals in the corridor lets you understand that the hotel personnel fights with insects. The hotel staff is quite indifferent to guests needs and, though, doing something for you, but partially and without willing to satisfy the guest. Nobody smiles... Breakfast... You have the choice of same two meals each morning. The portions are small, cold and tasteless. Your request to change the combination, e.g. getting the sausage with the side dishes which belong to the bacon will be categorically declined. The one only juice was so watered down, that it was more "juice flavored water" than a juice. My willing to get the coffee in the paper glass (to take it to the room) has been monosemanticly declined so I, even, felt myself like i've asked for the bottle of champagne accompanied by oysters and black caviar. So, staying in the hotel 3 nights, i went to get the breakfast once only. Wifi in the room: the signal is very strong, but Internet speed is zero. Not "not fast enough", not "slow", but real, absolute zero. So, this Hotel couldn't be described as the Hotel providing Wifi in the rooms. I don't belong to the category of capricious guests, but definitely will never stay in Shanghai's Seventh Heaven Hotel again.
