LIONEL MESSI is enjoying the best of the French capital after completing his move to Paris Saint-Germain.
The 34-year-old is currently staying in a five-star Paris hotel with a swimming pool, private cinema and SIX trendy restaurants on site.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Messi, his wife Antonela and the couple’s three children are staying at Le Royal Monceau hotel in Paris.
The hotel’s official Instagram account, with over 118,000 followers, shared a video of Messi arriving at the hotel.
A picture of Messi in a Barcelona shirt, alongside former Real Madrid rival Sergio Ramos and PSG’s other summer signings, has also been posted.
The image was captioned: “What an honor to welcome such a talented player to PSG!”
The hotel is believed to be where Neymar stayed before finding his permanent home in the French capital in 2017.
Luxury hotel rooms start at around £700 a night, and Messi’s accommodation would be expensive £17,000 PER NIGHT.
It’s new for us but I’m ready. In the sporting aspect and for my family, it’s an incredible city. It’s beautiful and I’m sure we’ll enjoy this place. We are calm and happy.
Le Royal Monceau is located on Avenue Hoche in the heart of Paris, just around the corner from the famous landmark of the Arc de Triomphe.
The hotel is also close to the arts district of France and hosts exhibitions and other cultural events.
And it’s famous for its fine dining, with restaurant Matsuhisa Paris serving a delicious wagyu beef steak, priced at €80 (around £67).
The Royal Monceau, opened in 1928, offers breathtaking views of the French capital and the rooms were renovated by designer Philippe Starck 11 years ago.
Many famous faces are believed to have stayed at the hotel over the years, including Winston Churchill, Walt Disney and Robert De Niro.
