Where to stay in Baku for the 2021 Azerbaijan Grand Prix

Filed in 2021 Azerbaijan Grand Prix Travel Guide by on 3 Comments

The best budget, mid-range and luxury accommodation close to Baku City Circuit for the 2021 Azerbaijan Grand Prix.

Please Note: The 2020 Azerbaijan Grand Prix (scheduled for June 5-7) was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. This post will be updated with current accommodation information when dates are announced for the 2021 Azerbaijan Grand Prix. Support the future development of F1Destinations by reserving your accommodation through the Booking.com links on this page. You won’t pay more and we receive a small commission to help run this site. We also recommend adding accommodation to your Official Ticket Package from F1 Experiences.

Since the Azerbaijan Grand Prix is a street race in the center of the city, you’ll have the best experience staying downtown. There’s a good selection of hostels, apartments and hotels to choose from in Baku, but it’s not the biggest city, so you’ll need to book early to get the best hotels at the most competitive prices. Don’t discount staying outside the city center if you want to save some money;  Baku is well served by public transport, including a metro system.

Stay in Baku with F1 Experiences

Official Ticket Packages from F1 Experiences include the best grandstand seats or access to the Formula 1 Paddock Club plus exclusive activities that will get you closer than ever before to Formula 1, including a Guided Track Tour, Exclusive Pit Lane Walk and access to the Formula 1 Paddock & Podium. Add a 4-night stay at the Hilton Baku to your stay and you’ll be in the heart of the action, a short stroll from the circuit gates. If you are lucky, your room may even have a view of the track!

    Hi Alice,

    I’m wondering how to find a rental apartment the overlooks the actual race course in Baku. What reputable sites would you recommend? Alternatively, I would also be interested in your opinion of the best viewing seats/grandstands for buying tickets for the race?

    • Editor says:

      Hi James, for finding an apartment overlooking the circuit, I’m really not sure. I suggest checking Airbnb and contacting the owners to ask. Marie Misso, who wrote a 2017 Azerbaijan GP trip report for us, stayed in Don Dar Hotel last year with a room overlooking the circuit. As for grandstands, the views are not fantastic from any of them to be honest. I’d go for Icheri Sheher, with a view of the old city walls.
