Hotels Owned by Ronaldo and Messi With Prices

You know that game that supposes to be fun and family/friends-friendly, but still, you always end up fighting and screaming and (almost) throwing some objects at each other? That’s right, we’re talking about Monopoly. So, here’s something new: did you know some people play actual Monopoly in real life? Like, beyond the board game. For example, Christiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi - invest in hotels, which are surprisingly really cheap to stay at. What do you think, shall you consider staying at the hotel owned by the best world football players?

Hotels Owned by Ronaldo and Messi With Prices

Many professional football players make that much money they don’t know what to do with it. Some choose to buy assets like fast cars and even private jets. While others get their business head-on early in their career, investing it in the right places. So that when they retire, they have multiple sources of income to replace the wages previously being paid to them by football clubs. This is why along with investing in houses, some footballers own hotels. It’s actually smart because hotels bring in a lot of money each year if approached correctly.

In this post, we will introduce you to the most impressive hotels owned by the world’s famous footballers. 

But before we jump into the ultimate footballers' hotel list, make sure you always book your hotel at a fair price. Even if these hotels below seem surprisingly cheap, check those rates for free with Ratepunk.
