The best hotel in Scandinavia. The cool atmosphere and high quality of food and rooms makes it a great stay for a romantic weekend or business. Awesome location with great restaurants and nightlife nearby. Make sure you book a taxi in advance if you need to travel outside walking distance

This was a very clever hotel. You can tell there are a lot of thoughts going into its design. I would call this a life-style hotel. There are little innovations along the way which makes me often said to myself - oh gosh someone thought of that?! The location is amazing. It is in the newer part of Oslo and...

My family stayed here for a few nights in November and they were blown away by the service and the hotel itself. The room was very cozy, with a stunning view on the fjord and breakfasts had a wide choice of healthy options. Also, the location is absolutely perfect. Decided to stay here every time when in Oslo!

My first visit to Oslo was to visit a good friend of mine, he lives outside the city, but I wanted something close to everything, and The Thief delivered. The hotel is very artsy and urban, but still has a very warm feel to it. The staff always has a smile, and all seem to really enjoy their job (which...

Having been forced to lay over in Oslo due to a fault on our SAS flight from Tromso to Oslo, We were fortunate enough to find accommodation at The Thief. We found the hotel to be very modern with quirky items placed around the hotel. I cannot comment too much on the hotel as we only spent one night. I...

This place is magnificent :) Deliciously contemporary and gently playful design, from the hotel logo through to the cocktail glasses (the Oceans 11 — or Notions 11 as we renamed it — came in a Fabergé egg with a fliptop lid); through to every thoughtful nuance in the rooms. One of the most comfortable cloudfloaty sleeps ever. Glorious pillows and...

Four nights over the New Year - loved every aspect of this hotel; sophisticated boutique style, attentive, efficient and friendly staff, excellent food. Located on the Marina, provides a fjord aspect with a vast array restaurants. Roof top bar and own restaurant "The Food Bar" serving gourmet dishes at an affordable price. Will definitely return. Important Tip to travellers -...

Whilst the hotel is in a beautiful area of Oslo, with beautiful rooms, fabulous service, polite, friendly staff and plenty of choice at the breakfast buffet, the website does lead you to believe a lie. Most rooms view of the harbour is tainted by the many buildings surrounding the hotel. Our first room looked directly onto a wall of the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stepping into THE THIEF is sure to rob you of something. Something familiar and shall we say, enslaving at times. And the thing is that the hotel is so good at it… that you might not notice until the end. You suddenly find yourself engaged in a world of new impressions: cutting-edge art, architecture and world-class gastronomy.And then it hits you, what’s been stolen from you…you haven’t had a single thought about your very long to-do list, the responsibilities at home, the everyday worries. ... more   less
