We ski in Wanlong for the last 10 years and it is the best so far amongst all if looking for diversity or tracks from beginners to confirmed. It developed fast with the pressure of Beijing proximity and the number of skiers increasing rapidly over the time period. It is a place to enjoy snow sports not for after ski activities.

The Hotel sits next to the ski slopes, with access to the beginners slope from the 2nd floor of the hotel, from the beginners slope, you can reach access to all other areas with ease.
Reception, basic English was OK, and efficient, The room I had faced the ski slopes and provided a great view, the room itself, was fairly basic, but had all the necessary amenities, bed was comfortable and room was a nice temperature, though adjustable. There is also a Massage / SPa, though I did not use this.
Breakfast inclusive offered huge variety, at a basically good standard, with a lot of Fresh and freshly cooked options. Coffee passable, not great
My only gripe was the noise at night, very little or no sound insulation from the corridor, which is a stone floor so it is noisy. Fortunately after a full day skiing, sleeping was not an issue

Room tip: All OK, can be very noisy at night from other residents

Hotel is located just in 5 minutes walking to the ski lifts. Magnificent breakfast included in the room rate with a huge choice of Chinese and European food. There is a good restaurant on the third floor with a good Chinese cuisine and fare prices. Attentive staff.

Shuanglong actually comprises several "Hotels" sort of. There is the main one which is actually called Shuanglong and then next door there are some apartment buildings which have been incorporated into the hotel in such a way that apartments that haven't been purchased yet are used as a kind of overflow. They use them as hotel rooms in each of the apartment buildings has its own Hotel name the one we stay that was YunLong. We only stayed in the apartment rooms for two nights. We have stayed in main Hotel many times. Either way they both suffer from one problem and that is the lack of control of the rooms temperature. The only way to regulate the heat of the room is by opening Windows which is very wasteful if you ask the management to turn down the heat you will not get what you want..
The apartments are okay mind you that their definition of a four person sleeper is not necessarily the same as yours. What they gave us was an apartment with a kitchen in the bathroom and one bedroom with a double bed and a living room which had besides the couch a bunk bed so beware of that never sleeps out there has no privacy.
The double bed was comfortable enough but could've used the extra pillows while the bunk bed had a mattress with all of the softness of a piece of wood.

Other than that the hotel is okay there is a hot tub facility where are they kind of try to copy the Japanese. In the men's and women's locker rooms there is one or two communal hot tubs that you can use if you did not bring a bathing suit on this trip the temperature is not quite as hot as the Japanese would keep it being about 38° C they do supply both standup and sit down showers for people to wash up before getting in the tubs be advised that unless you want to get caught up in some ill mannered children's water fights with those showerheads maybe you should go during the slower period. Also be advised that if you are sensitive to secondhand smoke brace yourself before going in this goes doubly so for their restaurants because it is a smoking culture.
If you do wish to use the communal Family style hot tubs of which there are many you must use a bathing suit which if you did not bring your own you can buy on site again expect ill mannered unsupervised children running around and splashing. Relaxation is secondary.
Lastly the tubs are basically just for late afternoon and evenings they don't seem to open in the mornings.

Again the hotel both the apartment side and the main side are both skiing in ski out with lockers nearby that you need to rents if you want to keep your equipment there.

When it comes right down to it the main hotel it's probably the best option above both the apartments and any of the hotels downtown. There is however a Holiday Inn being constructed which looks like maybe it'll be ready next year so things may change.

Room tip: Take the 3rd floor for easiest access to the ski in/out entrance

We were very happy with the hotel. Got the family room, Korean style sleeping on mattresses on an elevated heated floor.
Positive aspects; absolutely perfectly located for the Wanlong resort. In fact there is no better hotel although many are being build for the Winter Olympics to be partly held here in 2022. One can walk straight onto the ski piste from the front door (flyover walk-bridge).

Furthermore; very good breakfast buffet, good food, quite okay service (although nobody speaks workable english), clean, comfortable.
The best is the upgraded Spa area in the basement. It's about 30 x 50 meter big with many hot baths/japanese style shower arrangements/etc etc. If you opt for the (RMB 358/70 minutes expensive to Chinese standards) massage make sure to take the oil one :). While you have your massage they'll arrange a room for the kids to play at... very good!

Not so positive; there is absolutely nothing to do at night in the hotel (other than the Spa) or around the hotel.
Furthermore extremely limited food choice; either the okay & cheap buffet (with e.g. Cured ham/Mongolian roast lamb/Pizza and perfect coffee), or the Chinese restaurant on the 4th floor which actually is very good.
And, better call a friend help translate into Chinese by phone rather than trying to get service in English. Too frustrating.

Tip; the hotel offers day-ski passes at RMB 350 per person weekdays which includes equipment as well, about 40% off from what you'd pay at the public ski rental.

Transport; RMB 250/65km/1 hour to Zhangjiakou by taxi. You can fly from there to most big Chinese cities and onwards. Chongli is about RMB 30/10km/15min away, a new town which we don't recommend to visit. We took a taxi from Beijing airport, RMB 1400/270km/4.5 hours (while perfect highways... really slow average).

In short; if you opt to ski at Wanlong rather than Korea or Japan, we'd highly recommend this hotel.

Room tip: Tamika family room is good if you come with kids
