Shanghai has an excellent range of accommodation and prices for good quality hotels are reasonable by international standards. Being such a big city, you also won’t be so impacted by the dreaded ‘F1 tax’ which increases hotel prices so much in many other F1 cities. Although there are plenty of hotels close to the Shanghai circuit, we recommend staying in central Shanghai and taking the metro to the track each day.

Hotels close to Shanghai International Circuit

The Shanghai International Circuit is located in the Jiading district, approximately 30km north west of the city centre. If you are coming solely for the Grand Prix, staying closer to the circuit will save you both money and time spent commuting from other parts of the city. Choices are limited in Jiading however, so you will need to book early. Alternatively, the city center is well connected to the circuit by metro and there’s plenty to keep you busy after a day at the track.

Holiday Inn Express Jiading Industry Park

  • New and well rated, 10km from the circuit
  • Doubles from $65 USD per night

Courtyard by Marriott Shanghai Jiading

  • Located 7km from the circuit. Wi-Fi is available at a fee.

  • Doubles from $130 per night
