Accommodation – 2018 Russian Grand Prix

Filed in Russian F1 Travel Guide by on 0 Comments

Where to stay for the Russian Grand Prix. The best hotels for all budgets close to the Sochi Autodrom in Adler, and in central Sochi. The next race takes place from September 28-30, 2018.

Sochi is a popular summer resort with a huge range of accommodation from cheap hostels and guesthouses up to five-star brand hotels. Whilst there is an inevitable hike in prices on Grand Prix weekend, this is not as pronounced as in some F1 cities. This is helped by the fact that the race takes place outside the main summer season; in 2018 has been moved from late April to late September. Foreign visitors will be pleasantly surprised by the quality and cheap prices of the accommodation in Sochi, much of it within walking distance of the Sochi Autodrom. We’ve separated our recommendations below into two sections; hotels close to the track in Adler and hotels in central Sochi (40km to the north), which is easily accessible by train or bus.


There are scores of hotels and cheap beachside guesthouses within walking distance of the Sochi Autodrom but demand is high on Grand Prix weekend. As always, we recommend booking as early as possible. We also recommend the following trackside hotels if you can get a room: Radisson Blue Resort and Congress Center, Radisson Blue Paradise Resort & Spa & Tulip Inn Omega Sochi.



Olimpiysky Park Guest House

  • Just 500 meters from the circuit
  • Flat screen TV and WiFI
  • Twin room from €40 per night

El Paraiso Hotel

  • Beachfront 4-star hotel
  • 5km from Sochi Autodrom
  • Standard double room from €80 per night

Imeretinskiy Hotel

  • Well-rated 4-star hotel next to the beach
  • 20 minute walk from Sochi Autodrom
  • Double room with sea view from €230 per night


With decent public transport, it’s possible to base yourself anywhere along the coast on Grand Prix weekend and still get to the Sochi Autodrom cheaply and easily (more in Getting There & Around). Many fans choose to stay around 40km north in the center of Sochi, where there is plenty of accommodation to suit all budgets, including lots of extremely good value higher-end hotels. Lazarevskoe tends to offer the most budget accommodation, and central Sochi (and Adler, near Sochi Autodrom) the pricier hotels.
