The Seventh Heaven Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Position of the hotel is excellent in the midlle of the walking zone of the Nanjing street. Since it is good positioned all needed amneties are very close, such as banks, metro station, shops, restaurants etc., as well as touristic attractions. Rooms are convenient if you don't have high expectations and need place to sleep and plan to go around the city instead stay in the hotel. Breakfast is bellow expectation for rank of the hotel. Staff tries hard to be helpful but for some of them poor English disables them to be.

Location, location, location!! It's right on the Nanjing East Pedestrian Road, where there's shopping, restaurants right downstairs. There's good variety of local and international chain restaurant. Just diagonally across about 50m from hotel there's food court on the 2nd and 3rd floor where you can get the famous Shanghai dumplings (same restaurant as in Yu Garden) and sheng jie boa, usually short lines so you don't have to endure long queue like in Yu Garden. We took the metro line 2 from Pudong PVG and got off at Nanjing Road Station and walked about 5min to hotel. Breakfast is decent with your choice of main and a buffet of fruit, juice, cereal and congee. Overall a good stay and will come back. We booked early so had a pretty good rate. Bathroom cleanliness needs improvement as there're some black mold on tile joints. Room shows wear and tear but it's clean and comfortable. Unlimited supply of drinking water from mini water fountain in room. Bed is on the hard side but comfy enough. Windows is very old and need replacing but these issues are the same with many hotels in its class in China unless you are staying at an international brand hotel. Wifi is good in my room but friends we travelled with didn't have wifi in theirs and we stayed on the same floor. Air condition is sufficient for the time that we stayed there but if weather gets any hotter it may not be strong enough. If you venture off just to the many side streets of Nanjing road you will see many small eateries. You can try some authentic Shanghai food. Many has large photos of dishes on the walls or on their menu and you can order by photo.

The hotel location is perfect, which is on center of East Nanjing road. Breakfast is included. Hotel room is average. Reception staff speak English which does help a lot to you. They let us check-in early.

- terrible WI-FI connection and some days NO WI-FI completely - very rude, helpless and unprofessional staff - reception and all staff at the hotel do not speak english - DISGUSTING BREAKFAST (the worst breakfast I have ever had) - COLD food every day (cold bacon, cold eggs, cold dumplings, NOT FRESH! - very dirty hotel and rooms - hotel saving on cosmetics and toilet paper - splendid windows and bathroom - no city map in english, only in chinese (Are we at the hotel?)

We needed somewhere to stay for 3 nights while we explored Shanghai. The location was perfect however the rooms and hotel are below average. Very dull and dated. You can see maintenance is not and has not been in the budget for quite some time. The beds and sheets were clean though and the cleaners are obviously doing the best they could with the tools they're given so I can't fault them. Breakfast was ok. They let us check in early too. I'm not a princess so was happy with accomodation because I just wanted to wake up and explore and not stay in hotel much and I'd recommend to anyone who is similar and looking for cheap accommodation. You can't beat the location.

While I was okay with the dated interior, the power was out one morning of our stay. After waiting 8 minutes for the one working elevator, daughter and I decided to walk down the 8 flights of stairs to the street to exit hotel. The walk down the stairs was met with old furniture, overflowing electrical boxes, and a chained and locked door at the ground floor. Immediately all I could think of is there being a fire and is being stuck without an exit. Please take caution if you stay here!

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.
