LIONEL MESSI is enjoying the best the French capital has to offer after completing his transfer to Paris Saint-Germain.
The 34-year-old is currently staying in a five-star Parisian hotel with 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 the Le Royal Monceau hotel in Paris.
The hotel’s official Instagram account, with more than 118,000 followers, shared a video of Messi arriving at the hotel.
A photo of Messi in a Barcelona shirt, alongside former Real Madrid rival Sergio Ramos and other PSG summer signings, has also been released.
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 residence in the French capital in 2017.
Luxury hotel rooms start at around £ 700 per night, Messi’s accommodation reportedly expensive £ 17,000 PER NIGHT.
It’s new to us, but I’m ready. Sportingly and for my family, it’s an incredible city. It is beautiful and I am sure we will enjoy this place. We are calm and happy.
The Royal Monceau is located on avenue Hoche in the heart of Paris, a stone’s throw from the famous monument of the Arc de Triomphe.
The hotel is also close to the arts district of France and organizes exhibitions and other cultural events.
And it’s famous for its fine cuisine, with Matsuhisa Paris restaurant serving 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 said to have stayed at the hotel over the years, including Winston Churchill, Walt Disney and Robert De Niro.
