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 outside in late September, after the main summer season. 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 hotels in central Sochi (40km to the north), which is easily accessible by train or bus.

Accommodation near Sochi Autodrom

There are scores of hotels and cheap beachside guesthouses within walking distance of the Sochi Autodrom but demand is high on Grand Prix weekend. As always, we recommend booking as early as possible. The closest hotel to the track is the Bogatyr Hotel, which is connected to the theme park next to the circuit, where hotel guests get free entry. We also recommend the following trackside hotels if you can get a room: Radisson Blue Resort and Congress Center, Radisson Blue Paradise Resort & Spa & Omega Sirius Park.

Olimpiysky Park Guest House

  • Just 500 meters from the circuit
  • Flat screen TV and WiFI
  • Twin room from €40 per night

El Paraiso Hotel

  • Beachfront 4-star hotel
  • 5km from Sochi Autodrom
  • Standard double room from €80 per night

Imeretinskiy Hotel

  • 4-star hotel next to the beach
  • 20 minute walk from the track
  • Double room with sea view from €230 per night

Accommodation in central Sochi

With decent public transport, it’s possible to base yourself anywhere along the coast on Grand Prix weekend and still get to the Sochi Autodrom cheaply and easily (more in Getting There & Around). Many fans choose to stay around 40km north in the center of Sochi, where there is plenty of accommodation to suit all budgets, including lots of extremely good value higher-end hotels. Lazarevskoe tends to offer the most budget accommodation, and central Sochi (and Adler, near Sochi Autodrom) the pricier hotels.
