    Can you request which floor you wish to stay in and how far of a walk is it from central station? Thank you

    I believe you need to be a member of Accor Hotel Group to request a floor level but you can request high or low only I suppose. The city centre is walking distance.

    Actually I can't remember but as a rule it's normally around £10, often if you pay for breakfast the night before it is cheaper. We found that at several places.
