Hotel E Royalton
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in Bayamo
Reviewed April 1, 2011

The Royalton is well located opposite of Parque Céspedes in the center of town in an area of well maintained buildings. I didn't expect too much upon arrival considering this hotel is only labelled as 2 star on many sites but from what I gathered, recent renovations have elevated this edificio into the 3 star category. I was quite impressed with the room and furnishings even though it was not large. There is no pool but a large upstairs deck for sunning and an in-house restaurant.
The staff were gracious but at times a bit out-of-the-know about certain things seeing as Bayamo is not a huge tourist destination. The towns-folk almost seemed too quiet for Cubans and I did not feel any sort of sense of being hustled wherever I lurked around.
The streets surrounding the park and the boulevard beyond, are blocked and traffic-free making for a quiet pedestrian-walkway atmosphere with a few shops, restaurants, bars, and even a cinema in the vicinity. At any given moment there are people sweeping the streets and square making for an almost perfect picture/postcard look that is not always equated with many parts of Cuba.
A great place to spend a few relaxing days but a week or more might be too much for some who seek a more adventurous action-filled environment. One of those places that is unique in Cuba for it's own ways.
A word of caution is that there is no place in town to exchange money on a Sunday which can make a hungry tourist almost like a beggar of sorts. Kind of funny, if you can imagine. If it weren't for the grace of a casa owner and a fellow tourist, it might have been a long uninteresting night.
I hope to return soon......

Okay for an overnight stay, but wouldn't like to stay for a length of time. Room was small with noisy air conditioning and poor bathroom. Good location however, and good to sit outside hotel with a beer.

A "step back in history". Cuba "islazul" hotels has a "gem" of a property in this historical Bayamo hotel. Overlooking the spectacular courtyard, one is able to feel the warmth of this truly unique historical hotel. Shopping, restaurants, and friendly locals are within a short stride. The ambience is like no other and with the strength of the Cuban hospitality, this hotel strives to be elite. Staff, accomodations, and security were great. The church was absolutely, astonishingly beautiful. The priest was friendly as he blessed my holy cross. Cuba si! (Excellent patio bar, and front desk staff) A very "PEACHEY" holiday.
