Located just 30 kilometers north east of Bahrain International Circuit and close to the airport, Bahrain’s capital city of Manama is the clear accommodation choice for F1 travelers. Proper budget lodgings are in short supply in Bahrain, and hostels are practically non-existent in the Middle-East. The good news is that decent apartments can be rented cheaply during F1 week, especially when you split the cost among friends. At the other end of the scale, luxury stays in Bahrain are significantly cheaper than in places like Abu Dhabi, with the very top hotels charging around 400 per night over race weekend for five star suites with infinity pools and all the trimmings.
