Hotels in Singapore with F1 views


Race car fanatics will know that it’s soon going to be that time of the year when we hear the sweet sounds of the roaring race car engines, and thunderous cheers from the audience stands. Returning back to Singapore from 20th-22nd September 2024 is the much anticipated F1 Singapore Grand Prix.

And for those going all out with an F1 weekend staycay, you’ll want to know which hotels have the best views of the track so you can catch all the action. So before you race off to book your tickets, here are the best hotels in Singapore with F1 views to consider for your grand weekend away.


All you need to know about Singapore Grand Prix 2024


The first Singapore Grand Prix was held back in 2008 – yes, it’s been 16 years since our Little Red Dot played host to the night race.

Just before coming to Singapore, the F1 drivers will be seen racing in Azerbaijan the weekend prior. Same as every year, all the Singapore Grand Prix action will be taking place around the Marina Bay Street Circuit which covers areas around the Singapore Flyer, MBS, Esplanade, and Padang.

Even if you haven’t caught Netflix’s Drive to Survive, we’re sure you’ll be familiar with names like Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso who are representing Mercedes-AMG and Aston Martin respectively. Look forward to seeing them and their iconic fast cars speed through our city streets on the weekend of 20th-22nd September 2024.

The 3-day affair starts with practice rounds on Friday, qualifiers on Saturday, and the finale on Sunday. Tickets can be purchased for individual days (from $128) as well as packages (from $358) for the entire weekend.

Do note that at this point, most of the tickets including walkabout ones are sold out. So, your next best bet to catch the race is by camping at one of the nearby rooftop bars or booking a hotel in Singapore with F1 views.

Here, you can watch as drivers navigate and race across the Anderson Bridge before heading towards Esplanade Drive. The Esplanade Room will be the ideal room to stay in, but any north-facing room should do the trick too.

Swissotel The Stamford is no foreign name to both locals and tourists alike. At 73 floors, it is the tallest hotel in Singapore. You’ll want to opt for the Premier Harbour View or the Swiss Harbour View rooms for the best views. But fret not if these aren’t available, you can head over to the Level 65 Lounge where FOC admission is granted for guests staying at select rooms.

And judging by past F1 maps, you’ll be well-situated to watch the cars drift along the winding parts of the course, head out of Turn 9, and speed towards the Padang.

The floor-to-ceiling windows mean you’ll have a clear shot of the fast-approaching cars along the Esplanade section – Turns 14 to 17 – of the circuit. For the ultimate view, cop a stay at either the Marina Bay View or Grand Ocean View room.

Another iconic Singapore hotel would be Marina Bay Sands, and for good reason too.
