Seventh Heaven Hotel

Seventh Heaven Hotel lies at the well-known Nanjing Road Pedestrian Street, the No. 1 commercial street in China. It is conveniently located, with such main scenic spots as the Bund, Yu Garden, Shanghai Museum, Shanghai Grand Theater and Huaihai Road, another main commercial street, all being within the walking distance. It is an ideal choice for tourists, shopping, entertainment and business activities.

 

 

Built in 1932, the hotel was among the top hotels in Shanghai with a high reputation home and abroad. It has 59 cozy rooms, simple but elegant, and from the rooms facing Nanjing Road, one can get a perfect view of the hustle and bustle along the pedestrian street. Its Old Shanghai restaurant serves authentic Shanghai cuisine and caters to all needs, including wedding feasts, birthday parties, meetings and banquets, while The Café offers a wide selection of drinks. In the evening, a song and dance performance takes the guests back to the old days of Shanghai to experience its graceful charms at night.

 

The brand of Seventh Heaven dates back to more than 70 years ago. In 1915, Kwok Lok and Kwok Chuen, the two overseas Chinese brothers, founded Wing On Company, one of the “big four” department stores in Shanghai at the time. In 1932, they built a 19-storied skyscraper, the new Wing On building, and connected their original building with the new extension by a closed overpass, the crowning attraction in Nanjing Road at the time. In 1937, Wing On Company successfully registered the name “Seventh Heaven”, after the fact that the company sat on the 7th floor of the building. In the old Shanghai, people would relish talking about the tower: the tallest building, the most luxurious entertainment venue, the most prominent landmark and the first song and dance hall in town. Just as Mao Dun described in his novel The Morning of Shanghai that “it is a paradise for celebrities, young ladies of note, industrial and business elites and fashionable personages in the upper classes, the most luxurious entertainment place people long for and fashionable for a long time in the entire Southeast Asia”.

 

In 1985, the then Shanghai Culture and Broadcasting Bureau established here the first joint venture star-rated hotel between China and Japan – Seventh Heaven Hotel, and in 1992, it became a subsidiary of Oriental Pearl (Group) Co.,Ltd.

 

Since its opening, it has won favor of guests at home and abroad thanks to its long history and good services. It has received many guests from the broadcasting and TV sector, celebrities, etc and won their acclaim. It has been an appointed hotel for Shanghai International Broadcasting and Music Festival, Shanghai International Film Festival and Shanghai Television Festival for many years.
