There’s plenty of accommodation near the circuit, but we recommend staying in the centre of Barcelona, one of the world’s great cities. It’s easy enough to get to the circuit and you’ll have no shortage of things to do (not to mention restaurants & nightlife) away from the track. Another option is to stay in one of the resort towns on the Costa Brava and make a beach holiday out of it as well!
The great thing about Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya is its proximity to the center of Barcelona, meaning you have the perfect opportunity to enjoy a city break and an F1 getaway rolled into one. Barcelona has accommodation to suit every taste and budget, and prices are not as inflated on Grand Prix weekend as in some other cities. Renting an apartment is worth considering if you are travelling with friends and want to keep costs down. Airbnb is still big in Barcelona, despite a recent crackdown on “unlicensed apartments.” If you want to pull out all the stops, the city has more than its fair share of 5-star hotels and luxury villas available over the race weekend. The F1 teams will mostly be staying in hotels around the swanky Avinguda Diagonal and the Marina, so why not see if you can bag yourself a room right in the thick of it? We’ve listed some of the best places to stay below, from budget to luxury.
