Accommodation – 2017 Russian Grand Prix

Filed in Russian F1 Travel Guide by on 0 Comments

Where to stay for the Russian Grand Prix. The best budget, mid-range and luxury hotels close to Sochi Autodrom and in central Sochi. The next race takes place from April 28-30, 2017.

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 in spring, before the hoards of tourists arrive. 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 in central Sochi (40km to the north), which is easily accessible by train or bus.
