I loved the views from the room which overlooks the Marikina river and Pasig City.
The living room is quite spacious and actually has three parts. The one nearest the door is the small sitting or dining area with mini bar.
Next is the entertainment area (adjacent to the bathroom) with the TV, coffee table and couch.
Last is the writing desk area adjacent to the bedroom.
The bathroom is also spacious with the toilet and sink on the right and shower and bath tub on the left as you enter.
Toiletries provided in the bathroom included the usual: dental kit, vanity kit, shower cap, soap, body lotion, shampoo and body wash.
Amenities at Eastwood Richmonde Hotel
Whenever I stay at a hotel, I love checking out its amenities. I usually love using the swimming pool, jacuzzi and steam/sauna because they’re less accessible to use than a gym.
At Eastwood Richmonde Hotel, there’s a fitness center that has a rooftop pool and a gym. The locker room has a dry sauna, but no jacuzzi.
Their gym is big and has wonderful views! There are strength and cardio machines as well as weights and punching bag.
They even have professional fitness trainers who can help you with your workout needs. In case you wanted to just workout without staying at the hotel, they have gym memberships available.
The rooftop pool is quite long, and is 3.5 to 5 feet deep. Being on the rooftop, you also get views of the city.
If you’re here for business, Eastwood Richmonde Hotel has a Business Center that provides business support from professional administrative assistance, to office equipment rental, to leasing of meeting rooms

Eastwood Cafe + Bar at Eastwood Richmonde Hotel
Eastwood Richmonde Hotel has its own restobar, Eastwood Cafe + Bar, which serves both Filipino and international dishes. The restaurant serves breakfast buffet that both hotel guests and outside customers can enjoy.
What I love about their buffet is it’s not just the typical continental breakfast with bagels, toasts, cereals, eggs and juices.
They actually have Filipino dishes as well that changes. During my stay, there were chicken tapa, tocino, garlic rice, bangus and longganisa.
What you should really come here for is their lunch and dinner. I’ve been to Eastwood a lot of times so was surprised that I never knew about this restaurant because it was such a good place. I found it better than a lot of the restaurants in Eastwood, and pricing is very reasonable.
This is attributed to Executive Chef Victor Barangan who brings to the table his years of experience learning and cooking in different parts of the world!
Their drink list menu is quite extensive as well from juices, shakes and cocktails, to beers, wines and spirits.
Be sure to check out their dining offers as well. They usually have the Nuovo Classic Chef’s Specials which is a three-course menu plus a drink. You only have to pay for your entree of choice.
Here are the 10 dishes you must try at Eastwood Cafe + Bar:
Fried Adobong Calamares: Unique version of calamares combining the popular Filipino dish, adobo, for flavouring and also adding a nice squid ink sauce to enhance the squid flavour even more.
Dapithapon salad: Award-winning for a reason! Vegetarians must try this dish!
Baked Bass: Fresh Apahap (Filipino sea bass). The torched choron sauce (tomato-based Béarnaise sauce) adds a nice twist!
Gourmet Burger: Mouthwateringly juicy and beefy. One of the better burgers I’ve had in the Philippines. Homemade pretzel bun was a welcoming change!
Fried Chicken Bun: A chicken burger done right! Crispy outside and juicy inside.
Rib eye: Tender and well-marbled rib eye with a nice grill taste.
Pollo Putanescca: Perfectly tender and juicy whole chicken which is quite uncommon.
