Staying in Monaco itself for the Grand Prix is sadly out of reach for all but the most deep-pocketed F1 fans. That’s why most fans choose to stay in nearby Nice, a stunning city with plenty of accommodation on offer from backpacker hostels to seafront boutique hotels. It’s also worth considering staying to the east of Monaco in Menton or further east on the Italian side. For information on camping at the Monaco Grand Prix, read our 2016 European F1 Camping Guide, where we highlighted some of the best campsites in the Nice area with good access to Monaco-bound trains. Transport in and out of Monaco over the race weekend is frequent, with cheap options by rail and road.

Staying in Monaco

If price is not a concern, then you’ll want to stay in Monaco itself. There is only a handful of hotels within the principality, most of which are booked out months in advance of the race weekend. Just outside however, there are a good selection of fine hotels, all of which are extremely expensive on Grand Prix weekend.

Le Méridien Beach Plaza

  • Not strictly in Monaco, but pretty close and with great views of the Med
  • Private beach with indoor and outdoor swimming pools
  • Large, well appointed rooms
  • Deluxe room with partial sea view from €1525 per night
  • Reserve:

Port Palace

  • Located in the center of the Grand Prix circuit overlooking Monaco harbor, just a six minute walk from Monte Carlo casino.
  • Each room has a private dressing room and whirlpool bathtub.
  • Deluxe double with harbour view €3600 per night

Grand Prix hotels in Nice

The atmosphere in Nice is vibrant on Grand Prix weekend and you won’t feel like you’re missing out by not being in Monaco, because the die-hard F1 fans stay here! If you have a little more time to spare, we highly recommend Nice as a tourist spot in its own right. With a beautiful old town, stunning beaches and more gardens, galleries and cathedrals than you can shake a stick at, it’s worth taking an extra few days to explore Nice if time permits. Below we have chosen the best-rated accommodation for different budgets in Nice on Grand Prix weekend.

There are towns small and large dotted along the Mediterranean cost near Monaco, both on the French side and the Italian side. Menton is a pretty village just 10km east of Monaco. A little further away, the first town on the Italian side is Ventimiglia (and Sanremo is not too much further). You will find lots of F1 fans in these towns on Grand Prix weekend, and there are trains and buses to get you to the circuit. The best part is that prices are significantly lower than in Nice.
