Secure underground parking. Friendly, helpful staff. The bar was closed during our visit because of Covid but looks a pleasant space. The old town, up to the cathedral, is a ten minute walk. Our room was modern, clean and adequately equiped, minibar etc.

Dear hosts, Your comment is a great reward for all our teams who are redoubling their efforts in these special times. Our establishment is in the heart of a lively district where restaurants and historic monuments such as the Cathedral are a delight to our visitors. We are pleased to read that you have appreciated the location of our Literary Hotel, as well as the presence of our car park. This is a rare advantage for a hotel in a city centre location. Thank you for highlighting your taste for the decoration of the rooms, which pays tribute to the writer Alexandre Vialatte. We hope that you have enjoyed discovering Clermont-Ferrand.

It has always been made clear to us, when booking a room here, that spaces in the hotel’s underground car park could not be reserved and it was “first come, first served”. Fair enough… And we have never had a problem before. When we arrived, we were told that there were spaces remaining, but we would have to go down to the second level. Then when we entered the car park, we found an abundance of empty spaces on the first level but the receptionist came running down to insist that we drive our larger-than-average car down the narrow ramp to the level below – telling us that the upper places were being kept for people who had already checked in but gone out again. In other words “reserved”! We obeyed but very nearly got stuck on the very tight bend in the ramp and spent much of the night worrying about getting our again. In the morning, a more helpful receptionist told us that the “up ramp” was even more difficult, which filled us with dismay, but she offered to come down with us and control the traffic so that we could at least go up the “down ramp”. She also knocked the parking charge off the bill, but this stressful experience will seriously colour our readiness to book here again, especially at busy times of the year. Some other more minor issues also detracted from our stay: The superior room we had booked turned out to be a little larger than the others in its category, as it had a sofa that could be converted into a bed. The problem was it had already been so converted, despite the fact that we had only booked for two adults, and all its cushions had been stuffed into the wardrobe area, along with a load of spare bedding, which together wiped out all the available storage space! We converted the bed back into a sofa ourselves, so that room looked less like a dormitory, and insisted that the receptionist (he of car park fame!) took the spare bedding away, but we could have done without this further hassle on arrival. Breakfast used to be the highlight of a stay here: a superb buffet served in the top floor breakfast room with stunning views of the town and surrounding countryside. This had been closed down for social distancing reasons and a much more limited buffet was being served in the rather dark bar and conference room areas on the ground floor. Admittedly this was charged at 9.50 Euros compared with 16 Euros before, but the choice and quality of individual items was distinctly inferior. Also it didn’t even feel very safe in terms of social distancing. Too many people were milling round the rather tightly packed buffet table and there was no sense of how people should circulate safely around the rooms . Other French hotels used recently have had one way systems and well spread out buffet selections to avoid such problems, even in some cases staggering arrivals by asking guests to book a time for breakfast. All in all, one of our preferred stopovers has managed to lose a lot of its shine.

Responded 8 Sep 2020
Dear Sir, I personally took care of your departure and I can assure you that we are attentive to the satisfaction of our guests. Your remarks are precious to us, thank you for having formulated them. Our parking lot is indeed quite narrow, but it is a rare advantage for an hotel in the city centre of Clermont-Ferrand. I am sorry to read that it has caused you so much trouble. During the summer season, we advise our guests to park on level -2 as priority in order to keep the last available spaces on level -1 so that we can have a quicker overview of the last available spaces. Having sensed your apprehension about moving up from level -2, I accompanied you to help you with the manoeuvre. You thanked me warmly for this attention and I offered you the car park to apologise for the inconvenience. We had to revise our breakfast service to meet sanitary standards. We have chosen the buffet, in our room on the ground floor, with individualised service and we have nevertheless kept our local suppliers (dairy products, pastries, bread...). I am sorry to read your disappointment, but you were informed of these changes by email before your arrival. I hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you again in the most favourable conditions to provide you with the best possible experience in our Literary Hotel. Muriel IMBERT, General Manager of the Hôtel Littéraire Alexandre Vialatte ****

I know that we are in a difficult situation with this Covid 19 pandemic but that is no excuse for neglecting patrons / guests. The hotel was booked in advance by around a week. Not a cheap hotel but thought why not allow ourselves a little extra. However once we had checked in we enquired about restaurant or food facilities and we were told there were none. Restaurant area was a ten minute walk away in cathederal square. It turns out that 10 minutes would be for an international athlete and hill climber. We asked about bar facilities and were told there were none. Not only that but there were no vending machines for snacks Etc. The room was Ok with a nice view (that we paid extra for) but apart from that my opinion was that very little thought had been given to arriving guests to advise them of lack of facilities. Had we known before hand we would have changed our booking.

Dear Sir, We are delighted that you have chosen our Literary Hotel dedicated to Alexandre Vialatte and his original universe. The rooms overlooking the puy de Dôme and the rooftops of Clermont-Ferrand are unique, as you point out. The new reception conditions have been put in place to welcome you in complete serenity. We take care to provide you with all this information by email before your stay as well as by means of numerous displays at the reception, in the lift and on your arrival. The bar is well open, just ask our teams who will be pleased to serve you. We specify on our site that the rooms do not have a minibar or restaurant, the latter having been closed for 2 years now. I am sorry that you have not read all this information and I hope that you renew this literary experience. Muriel IMBERT General Manager of the Alexandre Vialatte Literary Hotel **** 04 73 91 92 06

We stayed at the hotel while visiting Clermont-Ferrand for rugby and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is a 5/10 minute walk from the city centre where the good restaurants are and about a 20 minute walk from the Stade Marcel Michelin. The hotel was pretty quiet during our stay and the bar area always appeared empty. The room had everything we needed and the bed was very comfortable, there was occasional noise throughout the night from motorcycles in the square outside but it didn't keep us awake. The breakfast, although expensive at €16 per person, was excellent. There was a huge variety of options and it was all delicious. The scrambled eggs in particular were great and the best I've ever had at a hotel buffet (I really want that recipe!). The staff were friendly and helpful and in particular I would like to mention Balberta. We had some car trouble and as our French is limited Balberta made all the necessary phone calls for us, which ended up being a complicated process but Balberta did everything she possibly could to help us and we were so grateful.

loved the hotel ambiance and concept. in a good location, with friendly access and a private garage, that was a huge plus for us. we went to different day trips all within good distance from the hotel. breakfast was awesome!! a real treat of a roof top venue to drink your coffee and enjoy the view. room was ok with a window facing the square (and noise was sufficiently blocked by the windows when closed). room was good in in size and comfort, as well as shower and other public areas of the hotel. i would comment on a very limited selection of the loby food, it has a resto but almost no choice so you can not count on a meal there. another issue was poor wifi connection in the room, which was a shame but all in all we enjoyed our stay!
