Lionel Messi’s £30 million hotel in Barcelona set to be demolished

PSG superstar Lionel Messi is about to lose his hotel in Barcelona, Spain. The hotel is reportedly marked for demolition.

The record seven-time Ballon d’Or winner’s £30 million owned four-star hotel named ‘MiM Sitges’ has reportedly been handed a court order for its demolition, according to El Confidential.

MiM Sitges was built in 2013 at the center of Sitges and is located just 50 meters from the beach. It has 77 rooms and suites, 300 square meters of lounges with natural light and an equipped ‘spa’ with a water circuit”. It also has a swimming pool, gym and ‘sky bar’.

Messi bought the hotel from a businessman named Francisco Sánchez in 2017 for more than £30 million.

The PSG star bought the hotel unaware that Sitges Town Hall had already ordered the demolition of the hotel due to its non-compliance with urban regulations because of its huge balconies.

In order to make it comply with the urban regulations, the entire building has to be demolished as the structure of the balconies of the hotel is rooted in the general construction.

It is also claimed that another of the hotel’s problems is that the fire emergency plan failed to get a favorable report from the authorities and the consequences of a possible fire could be dangerous.

The price on weekends, for example now, from December 3 to 5, moves in the range of £105 and £216 per night for two people on a room-only basis.

Currently, the court order for the demolition of the hotel owned by Lionel Messi is pending however it may not be long before the order is effected.
