The 37-year-old player is already dominating news headlines as he puts up at one of the French capital's most prestigious suite in the most refined hotel for his five-month stay at his new club.The 323 sq-metre Imperial Suite at the Le Bristol Hotel located on the Faubourg Saint Honore usually costs up to 17,000 euros (S$28,600) a night, breakfast included, but Beckham is likely to get the room for a lot less, said a source close to PSG. The suite, which was built in 2011, can house up to 12 people and is the perfect home away from home for David, Victoria and their four children, Brooklyn, Romeo, Cruz and Harper.Two of its bedrooms are furnished with fabrics made by France's best upholsterer, Canovas, and the bed in the main bedroom is big enough for three adults, according to the hotel's website. There are two bathrooms, decorated with pink Aurora marble and boasting a "steam shower and a bath to create a private spa for total indulgence".The main bedroom also has its own sitting room as well as a large dressing room - which is perfect for Posh Spice. The hotel's location in Paris is also ideal for the mother of four, with stores such as Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Bottega Veneta along Rue du Faubourg Saint Honore.When it comes to dining, the family can be treated to in-house hotel chef Eric Frechon's trademark pot au feu with black truffles for 110 euros and chocolate nyangbo for 35 euros.According to The Daily Mail, his temporary abode in Paris could set him back a whopping 2 million euros, although it is believed that his room will be paid for thanks to the team's strong ties with the hotel. It was reported that he had been given 30,000 euros a month towards his hotel bills by the Qatar-owned club.Beckham had also announced that he will be donating his 800,000 euros salary to a children's charity. Looks like Beckham fans need not worry about his time in Paris."Beckham's fans can breathe easily," said France Info, the rolling radio news station. "He'll have a comfortable time in Paris."
