Accommodation – 2017 Bahrain Grand Prix

Filed in Bahrain F1 Travel Guide by on 0 Comments

Where to stay for the Bahrain Formula 1 Grand Prix, from cheap apartments to five-star luxury. The next race will be held on April 14-16, 2017.

Located just 30 kilometres north east of the Bahrain International Circuit and within spitting distance of the airport, Bahrain’s capital city of Manama is the clear accommodation choice for travellers. Proper budget lodgings are in short supply in Bahrain, and hostels are practically non-existent in the Middle-East, though decent apartments can be rented for as little as 50-100 per night during F1 week, which is not a bad tariff when split with some traveling friends. The better news, however, is that a luxury stay here will cost significantly cheaper than you will find in places like Abu Dhabi, with the very top hotels charging around 400 per night over race weekend for five star suites, infinity pools and all the trimmings.

Manama’s hotels are largely found in these districts:

  • Amwaj Islands: one of the pricier corners of the city, great beaches and close to the airport
  • Diplomatic Area: the central business district of Manama, favoured by F1 teams and personnel
  • Juffair: popular neighbourhood with expats, good for nightlife, shopping, bars and cafes
  • Seef: home to many of the city’s tallest skyscrapers, largest shopping malls and most expensive hotels
