Or, at the other end of the spectrum, supporters can pay a bargain £75 to bunk in shared rooms.

With around 1.2million people reportedly set to descend on Qatar for the World Cup, local authorities have worked to make a range of different accommodation available to fans.

But some of it will come at a cost.

Three Lions fans who make the trip to Qatar have the choice of living in style or bunking on a budget as they roar on Gareth Southgate and Co.

So here SunSport take a look at the accommodation on offer in Qatar with England’s World Cup opener just over a month away.

Luxury hotels

Qatar is one of the richest countries in the world, and that is reflected in the price of some of the luxury hotel rooms on offer for the World Cup.

Southgate picked the five-star Souq Al-Wakra hotel as their base for the tournament, with similar glitzy hotels available for fans.

One third-party site is listing hotel rooms for a whopping £4,000-a-night, according to moneycontrol.

Or, if money is just an object, a third-party is flogging a “head of state” suite for a mind-boggling £23k-a-night – with a 30-night minimum stay.

But official hotel prices for rooms that are still available on the World Cup official website start much cheaper than that.

They begin at just £137-a-night for the most basic rooms, with free access to an onsite gym.

Hotel prices range all the way up to the £1734-a-night starting prices for the glitzy Crowne Plaza Hotel in Doha.

Apartments and Villas

Apartments and villas are also able to rent after 30,000 more rooms were listed this week, according to The Peninsula, just over a month before the tournament starts.

The cheapest official price for apartments start at £75-a-night for basic rooms with single beds and lockers.

Alternatively, the most expensive luxury villas start at £858-a-night and are right next to the Khalifa Stadium, where England play their opener against Iran.

Cruise ships

England WAG’s will live on board one of the two luxury cruise liners that will be docked in Qatar for the tournament.

They will live on board the five-star MSC World Europa, with the four-star MSC Poesia also available for booking.

Prices on board the MSC Poesia start at £159-a-night, with the glitzier MSC World Europa starting at £309-a-night.

The more expensive MSC World Europa boasts SIX swimming pools and a spa, and even the smaller MSC Poesia has three pools, a spa, plus tennis and basketball courts on board.

Around 40,000 supporters are expected to be staying on ships after Qatar chartered the two boats from MSC Cruises.

Fan Villages

Official fan villages that have been set up for the tournament, with some more appealing than others.

One option costs almost £200-a-night, but the “cabins” are more like glorified shipping containers.

Billed as an official fan village, the tiny cabins can fit up to two guests inside at a time, and are close to Lusail Stadium, where the final will be held.

Fans will have to fork out £183-a-night per unit to be packed in like sardines.

Or, for the same price, a different fan village offers supporters the chance to stay in tents.

The Qetaifan Island Fan Camp has 1,800 tents, with each of them containing two single beds.

Fans staying there will have to make do with communal bathrooms and showers.

A cheaper option is the Caravan City fan village, where prices start at just £101-a-night.

That village is made up of beds that have been loaded onto caravans, but does include WiFi and TV screens, with six of the eight World Cup stadiums within a 20-minute drive.

Prices for the most expensive fan village, located on a farm, start at a whopping £1819-a-night.

But for that price fans can enjoy the use of an onsite swimming pool, a massage tent, yoga deck, gym and 24/7 guest services.
