Budget Hotels and Hostels for F1 Singapore 2013 Grand Prix

The 2013 Singapore Formula One (F1) Grand Prix scheduled to take place from 20 to 22 September 2013 will be Asia’s most anticipated and biggest motor-sports event of the year. As the first and only night street race in the F1 Championship draws near, demand for hotels are expected to rev up a few notches.

For the first time, the upcoming F1 Singapore 2013 Grand Prix race event will stage a Closing Concert headlined by Canadian pop-sensation Justin Bieber and Owl City. This year’s entertainment highlights also include a stellar line-up of mega-stars such as Rihanna, Big Bang (Korea), The Killers and Tom Jones.

Against such backdrop, finding accommodation in Singapore over the F1 race weekend can be a challenge. High demand from both motorsports enthusiasts and concert goers will drive up hotel room rates. During this F1 season, it will not come as a surprise that most hotels in Singapore may charge up to two times the usual rates.

Danny Lee, founder of, commented: “With the rates of trackside hotels doubling or even tripling during the F1 season, some F1 fans maybe priced out of action. For this reason, visitors can actually consider budget hotels and hostels that are located near the F1 racetrack. These cheaper accommodation options are also within easy reach of MRT train stations, shops and eateries. However, I do strongly advise racing fans to book early as these cheaper rooms get snapped up pretty fast.”
