Where to stay at the Hungarian F1 Grand Prix

The Hungaroring is located very conveniently close to the Hungarian capital of Budapest. There is a wealth of hotel and AirBnb options in the city which is an easy commutable distance from the track.

Hungaroring on Map

See our guide on getting to the Hungaroring in the section below.

The Hungarian Grand Prix is one of the most wallet-friendly options on the entire Formula 1 calendar, but finding accommodation can be one of the most expensive aspects of travelling to a race. Having a major European city close to the track means that there is a wealth of Budapest hotel options at relatively reasonable prices.

We would recommend staying in the east of the city as this will provide the easiest access both to the airport and the Hungaroring itself.

However, there is an option to stay even closer to the circuit…

Camping at the Hungaroring

Pitching tent for the weekend of a Formula 1 race is a bucket list activity – and some fans will do it every year. Check out our full guide to camping at the Hungarian Grand Prix below:
