The ‘F1 night race’ is a major sporting event with an estimated 40 000 plus international visitors converging on the city for the weekend, so good rooms are at a premium and prices are high. Luckily, there are ways to avoid the high prices if you are willing to compromise on creature comforts and/or location. Booking well in advance also helps. We have chosen some of the best Singapore Grand Prix accommodation for F1 fans on all budgets (scroll down if you are looking for the cheaper options.)

Support the future development of our site by reserving your accommodation with our partners Booking.com via the links on this page. You won’t pay more!

Marina Bay Luxury

Many of Singapore’s best hotels are located around the Marina Bay street circuit, literally a stone’s throw from the action. If you are staying in the right room at one of these luxury hotels (which won’t come cheap on Grand Prix weekend), you don’t even have to buy race tickets as you will have a ring side view of the race from the comfort of your hotel room. Be sure to check with the hotel during reservation to be sure you will have a room (or even better, a balcony) with a view.

Please note that the historic colonial Fullerton Hotel, located right next to turn 13, is already SOLD OUT for the 2016 Grand Prix weekend.

Ritz Carlton Millennia

The ultimate Grand Prix hotel experience. Located next to turns 19 and 20 and only a few minutes walk from the pits, it also hosts the weekend’s most exclusive party, The Podium Lounge. Rooms are priced from $1450 SGD per night. Reserve on Booking.com

Raffles Singapore

An iconic landmark, the Raffles Hotel is a grand reminder of Singapore’s colonial past. It’s also an incredible 5-star hotel and just a stone’s throw from the Padang area of the circuit. Rooms from $1035 SGD per night. Reserve on Booking.com

Mandarin Oriental

Get close to the action at the Mandarin Oriental, of the best five-star Grand Prix hotels in Singapore. The hotel is located in Zone 3 of the circuit near the popular Bay Grandstand (between turns 16/17 and 18/19). Rooms from $995 SGD per night. Reserve on Booking.com

Pan Pacific Hotel

Singapore Mid-Range Hotels

Decent mid-range hotels abound in Singapore, but if you want to save money on Grand Prix weekend, you’ll need to look at options a little further away from the city center and circuit. Just remember to check that your choice is close to public transport so you can get to the circuit easily. Below, we’ve chosen a couple of the best rated mid-range hotels for this years race.

Parc Sovereign Hotel – Tyrwhitt

Close to Little India, the Parc Sovereign Hotel is close to two MRT lines (about 10 mins walk) and offers free WIFI and an outdoor rooftop swimming pool. Double or twin room from $180 SGD per night. Reserve on Booking.com

Dorsett Singapore

A good 4-star hotel close to Chinatown and above the Outram Park MRT station. The Marina Bay circuit is just 2.5km to the northeast. Standard double/twin room for $240 SGD  per night. Reserve on Booking.com

Holiday Inn Express Singapore Clarke Quay

A brand new chain hotel close to Clarke Quay (700m from the MRT station) and Chinatown and within walking distance of the circuit. Rooftop fitness center and swimming pool. Rooms from $335 SGD per night. Reserve on Booking.com

Singapore Budget Hotels

Budget hotels are concentrated in several areas throughout the city, including Little India and Geylang, the city’s red light district. This market is dominated by a couple of budget hotel chains such as Fragrance and Hotel 81. Don’t expect luxury or great service – these are very basic hotels with tiny rooms and cheap prices.

Fragrance Hotel – Ruby

The location in the middle of Geylang may be a little seedy, but an MRT station is close by providing easy access to Changi airport and the circuit. The small, basic double/twin rooms are priced at $97 SGD per night. Reserve on Booking.com

Hotel 81 Rochor

Located in Little India, Hotel 81 Rochor is close to shopping and dining and a 10-minute walk from the Bugis MRT station. Standard double/twin room for $120 SGD per night. Reserve on Booking.com

Singapore Hostels & Capsule Hotels

Singapore has a wide selection of good-quality hostels, many of which are located in Chinatown, within walking distance to the circuit and plenty of nightlife options. A little further away, Little India also has a good selection of cheaper hostels. Capsule hotels are a very Asian phenomenon, somewhere between a hostel and a hotel, offering guests a small private space.

Rucksack Inn

This well-rated hostel chain has two locations in Chinatown – @Temple Street and @Hongkong Street within walking distance of the Marina Bay circuit and the popular Clark Quay area. Single beds in air-conditioned dorms cost from $35 SGD per night.

Adler Hostel

Part way between a hostel and a capsule hotel, the Adler (pictured above) is a new premium hostel. Dorms feature ‘personal sleeping spaces’ and cost approx $75 SGD per person per night including breakfast. Reserve on Booking.com

The Pod – Boutique Capsule Hotel

A new premium capsule hotel, The Pod is a little further from the track but close to the city’s Arab Quarter. A capsule for one person costs from $85 SGD per night including breakfast. Reserve on Booking.com
