Ronaldinho Staying In Presidential Suite Of Luxury Hotel While Under House Arrest

Legendary Brazilian footballer Ronaldinho is staying in the presidential suite of a luxury hotel during his house arrest.

After spending 32 days in a Paraguayan jail following the fake passport ordeal, both Ronaldinho and his brother and agent Roberto de Assis Moreira have been released after his lawyers paid a total of $1.6 million in bail.

The pair will be housed at Hotel Palmaroga in Asuncion, the capital city of Paraguay, and it's fair to see their new digs are a lot swankier then the prison they were staying in.


It's said that the former Barcelona star will be enjoying the comfort of the very best suite in the four-star hotel, complete with a four-poster bed, five-star room service, 55 inch TV and whirlpool bath.

Some of the facilities are out of bounds due to the coronavirus outbreak but R10 will still have his own balcony, which comes with stunning views of the the Bay of Asuncion.

The hotel, built in the 19th century, are reportedly offering discounts on rooms due to COVID-19 - with the presidential suite said to be £87-per-night - considerably cheaper than it would normally be.

Irrespective of the cost, Ronaldinho and his brother will no doubt be enjoying freedom and comfort after being locked up for just over a month.

Having said that, it seems as though the Ballon d'Or winner didn't exactly have the worst experience inside despite being in the company of 150 dangerous criminals.

He was seen drinking and signing autographs for fellow inmatches, while he also scored five in a prison football game and celebrated his 40th birthday with a BBQ and cake.
