does it mean that the station pays ME for a good hotel?

No, it's "pay for a good hotel for me". "mir" is "to/for me" (dative).

yeah, Bro. I wanted to say just the same.

Without the 'for' in front of 'me' in English, it could be taken as the station is paying you in return for a good hotel, not that they are paying for a hotel FOR you.

Yes, where is "me/mir" in the answer?

How does 'mir' fit into this?
