After the inaugural race was held at the end of the epic 2021 F1 season, the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix moved to an early season calendar slot in 2022. And that’s where it stays, being held just one week after the season opener in Bahrain.

Notably, both the 2024 Bahrain & Saudi Arabian Grands Prix will take place from Thursday to Saturday. The holy fasting month of Ramadan starts one day after the 2024 Saudi Arabian Grand Prix on March 10.

Jeddah doesn’t have a huge stock of hotels, and not that many international chains, but accommodation is generally of quite a high standard and prices are affordable by international standards. You are likely to pay a large premium for rooms at international chain hotels in Jeddah on race weekend, but many local hotels (and aparthotels) are well rated and much cheaper.

Accommodation Near Jeddah Corniche Circuit

The Jeddah Corniche Circuit is approximately 20-25km north of the old centre of Jeddah. The coastal area around the circuit is still developing (though it is home to several large malls), so there’s not many hotels within a short distance of the circuit. The best hotels close to the track are also more likely to be booked out by teams and other race personnel.

International chain hotels close to the circuit include: 

Well rated and affordable 3-star hotels and aparthotels close to the circuit include:

Accommodation in the Centre of Jeddah

Many of the best international chain hotels can be found close to the beach to the north of Jeddah’s city centre and old city (Al-Balad). This location, about 5km north of the old city and 20km south of the Jeddah Corniche Circuit, puts you in a good location to both explore the city and also get to the track fairly easily and quickly. Some of the best international chain hotels on the north side of Jeddah, many of which are resort style with direct beach access, include:

Accommodation near Jeddah Airport

Jeddah Airport is located around 15km east of the Jeddah Corniche Circuit, making airport hotels another option for your trip to the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix. Recommended hotels near King Abdulaziz International Airport (JED) include the following:

  1. I HIGHLY recommend against booking a room in a Saudi-owned hotel. Way back in October, I booked one across from the track. In February, they canceled. Due to limited availability, I booked another Saudi-run hotel in the general vicinity. After the experience with the first hotel, I decided to contact this hotel, just to reconfirm the reservation. They wrote back and told me that they could not honor the reservation because they are full. However, I can see that they are still accepting reservations through online booking platforms and they never actually canceled the reservation I made through Agoda. I booked a third Saudi-owned hotel and again received a booking confirmation through Agoda, but contacted them directly to reconfirm. It took them about a week before they responded by saying that they’re sorry, but it’s high season so they cannot accept the reservation (which again is still valid according to Agoda). There is no availability anymore with international chain hotels near the track, so I’ve tried one more booking with a Saudi hotel chain directly. However, for days now, I have been unable to reach them by phone to reconfirm and they have not responded to any of my emails. I’m really regretting getting tickets for this GP. It looks like we’ll probably be scrambling up until the last minute and end up staying on the opposite side of town. (Unfortunately, I have no confidence that the car rental agency will keep my reservation either!)
