My night at the Thief was a wonderful, flawless experience -- I highly recommend. The service was excellent, the room was wonderful, I had the best night's sleep I have had in a long, long time. The breakfast was lovely too!

Everything in this hotel are top class from rooms, bar, breakfast & spa. Its pricy, but they deliver something totaly different then other Oslo Hotels. Highly recommened!!

Nice hotel, nice room, nice staff, great spa. Difficult technicalsystem for light and heat in the room. Breakfast could be improved, with some special food, which you don't get everywhere. More different juice, different bread, which is not sweet, dark bread.

I stayed here one night and it was among my top three hotel stays ever. The rooms are great with very comfortable beds. The service is very good, really got nothing to complain about. Awesome rooftop terrace in the summer months.

Fantastic hotel. Amazing sleeping comfort. Excellent breakfast and polite staff. Located in a fresh and urban area in Oslo, right by the water. Only negative thing; the bathroom sink was clogged. Should have been noticed by the staff before I checked in.... Expensive, but very nice.

Stayed here for a weekend in September and definitely picked the most perfect weekend weather wise. We caught the train from the airport and decided to walk to the airport from the central station - took around 30 mins and was pretty straight forward. This then gave us an insight as to our surroundings and what Oslo had in offer...

Greetings and many thanks for your short , precise review of The Thief . Great to read you had such an enjoyable stay .

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights to celebrate my birthday. I couldn't recommend it more. From the moment we stepped in, the service was fantastic. The room was beautifully decorated with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was included and was a good reason to get up, so many options! The bar downstairs has some truly wonderful cocktails...

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
