I travel the globe and my client asked me to stay at the Memory in Kista. I'll keep it simple:
Location - Right in the technology sector
Quiet - Off the main streets so the room was quiet
Clean - Always a plus
Bed - Steel bed was comfortable...enough
Restaurant - Food was good
Wireless - Free and reasonable speed
Fitness Center - Reasonable for a hotel this size. One each: Concept2 Rower, treadmill, bike, dumb bells, bike but...(read below)
Towels - 1 bath towel and 1 hand towel supplied. Really? I went for a run and showered afterward only to find that I had to contact the desk to get more towels. Who doesn't use more than one towel in a hotel?
Soap - No bar soap. Only liquid soap from pumps. No shampoo and conditioner. Hey, I'm a business traveler and pack as light as possible. Every other hotel in the world provides the basics but not the Memory.
Coffee - None. Nothing. Not even a hot water pot in the room. I went to the lobby to ask for coffee or even hot water (I carry some instant coffee just in case) and he said "sorry, the kitchen doesn't open until 6:30). Wow.
Iron or Press - Nothing
Fitness Center - Doesn't open until 8AM!
So, if you read this far you might think I'm being a bit harsh but rating this hotel "Poor". However, it simply wouldn't be truthful to give it an average (or better) rating. I would suggest you set aside reviews of people who consider this one of their "favorites" when coming to town. I'm being completely transparent. It doesn't line up with other hotels priced like this one is across the globe.
All of this stated, maybe the amenities of this hotel just the way it is in Kista, Sweden. That I can't say as this is the only hotel I've stayed at in this town. In reading reviews of other hotels however, I doubt this is the best you can do for the money.
