Recent guest reviews
Hotel Theater Figi is located in the heart of Zeist, about a mile and a half from the railway station and close to a beautiful park. I spent three nights there recently and found it to be ok but nothing special. The hotel seemed like it must have once been rather grand. It has a very large lobby and sits opposite an impressive historic building. But I also got the impression it's a long time since it was last redecorated and brought up to date. Breakfast was distinctly average - nothing exciting (scrambled eggs - one lump or two?) and no tables are 'set' - you have to go and find all the cutlery and napkins yourself and coffee comes from a machine. The rooms are overdue for redecoration. There are spaces that look like they should have had a minibar in - but don't - and the world's tiniest kettle. The shower over the bath is in a position that doesn't make a lot of sense - it sprays towards the room not along the length of the bath. The beds are very Dutch - much too soft and with a thick soft pad on top that's not attached and so slides off in use. Nice staff, very convenient for where I needed to be, but nothing memorable about the place.
Whenever we are in Zeist, we stay at the Figi! The rooms are well looked after and the staff are excellent.. main draw card has to be the buffet breakfast though. A great mixture of cold cut meats, breads, yoghurt and cereal followed by bacon, eggs and sausages.. see you next year!
Figi annually hosts the annual PINC congresses, in 2017 for the 18th time. And I understand why the organisors return! The outstanding service of the staff, the excellent catering and the wonderful small and larger snacks, including the great buffet create a wonderful atmosphere where People, Ideas, Nature and Creativity flourish!
The Figi is a very nice hotel in a good central location in Zeist and about 40/60 minutes from Amsterdam. The rooms are large, clean and the beds are comfortable. They could do with a bit of tlc. The bathrooms are large and there is a shower over the bath. Wi-fi in the rooms. There was no fridge in ours although there was supposed to be and no tea and coffee making facilities which would have been nice. If you are looking for the hair dryer it is in the wardrobe as is the safe. All the staff were lovely and very helpful - there is a nice large reception area. The restaurant is very good and the staff here especially Lucas and Gola are very nice and helpful. The food was very good and the breakfasts are excellent with lots of choice and there is hot food as well - also the coffee is good. We enjoyed our stay here - we were on a coach tour to the bulb fields.
Nice please. Good staff, helpful. Would stay again. Taxi easy to get, booked by hotel to train station nearby. Free coffee in the morning and restaurant we OK adjoining hotel. Clean. Spacious. We paid £50
If your traveling to or through Zeist, the Hotel Theater Figi is an excellent stop. Rooms are better than average and the price is very competitive. The restruant is excellent and the service spectatular. A few little bars shrot walk, along with some shopping and dinning. Your in the heart of Zeist and all it has to offer.
Parking is very convinient and free! WiFi works great and the rooms are spacious and the bathroom has a nice, deep bathtub. I enjoyed a wonderful tangoinspired concert of 3 violas and a cello on sunday afternoon in the very same building. But: Why did I get a room to the backside with a lousy view and a rattling window on a winter-weekend that was not really busy, while the rooms to the front have a great view? No minibar and only thanks to the very friendly nightreceptionist could I still get some drinks at night. The first night I had a very presumptious waiter at the Bistro, but the rest of the crew werde excellent.
I've stayed here numerous times over the past view years on business trips so it's about time I gave it a review. Staff are always friendly and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Haven't eaten here in the evening but breakfast is of a decent quality with small but good selection of hot and cold choices, and nice coffee. There's a selection of restaurants close by and it's a short taxi ride (about €10) from the train station, or a 25 minute walk. Nothing really to fault it and I'm sure I'll stay again.
We truly enjoyed and are grateful to Lukas Gillissen, the F&B Supervisor, for his and his team's exceptional hospitality in terms of friendliness, personal care and flexibility that made us feel right at home in Hotel Figi. We hope that more people have the pleasure to experience this!
Objectively, you can't say anything negative about this hotel. Friendly staff, large executive room with even larger balcony, very clean (yes! Even the tiles around the bath tub). The location is absolutely 'Zeist central', opposite the town hall and within walking distance of Slot Zeist. There is some very classy shopping around the corner. Did I mention free parking and wifi? And yet... the hotel misses the wow factor. It's a bit bland, in need of update or better upgrade. But overall very good value for money and overall pleasant experience.
