Our visit to Oslo was organized by my wife as part of a surprise birthday celebration. Everyone of the hotel staff seemed in one the surprise and the event was a great success. The warmth of the staff, the fabulous location, the modern Scandinavian design and the excellent food all combined to make The Thief the best hotel in Oslo.

Apparently the most trendy hotel in Oslo right now. Well, I thought it a bit more hipster than hip. The design is very thought trough and very pleasing to the eye, both in the lobby and in the rooms.The beds are comfortable and the view is very tranquil, but there are a lot of technical details that just are a...

The Thief is a modern boutique hotel in an incredible location near the water surrounded by restaurants. The area is touristy but attractive, artsy and relaxing. The hotel offers tickets to the Modern Museum next door. The architecture is wonderful as well as the installations. Our room was quiet with good lighting, and well appointed with a comfortable bed. Unfortunately,... More

Perfect Boutique hotel..with a fabulous Art twist. Tons of contemporary art adorns the hotel. Room was large and comfortable...everything was chic and funky. Bathroom needs some more places to put your "stuff". Breakfast was abundant and yummy. Staff was a bit overwhelmed at times. Great location by the water. Can't wait to come back!! Loved this place

What´s the difference between a 4 star and a 5 star hotel? The staff and their service level first and foremost. The Thief is a nice hotel located very centrally at Tjuvholmen in Oslo. We booked a deluxe room. It was nice and clean, ok size but not a "de luxe" room compared to other hotels in 5 star class.... More

Lovely boutique hotel, very modern and on the water front where there are loads of restaurants and places to watch the world go by. We had a delux room, which was quite spacious, and the bed was fabulous, felt cocooned it was so soft. Plenty of tea and coffee making facilities and two comfy chairs for the odd hour you... More

There is definitely no other place to stay in Oslo like The Thief. Absolutely stylish and the most luxurious member of the Designhotels I have seen so far. Well, the front desk staff is very cool, there is no tour through the hotel nor an envelope for your bill at checkout, but hey, it's a designhotel! So don't expect a... More

This hotel lives up it's good reputation. Norway isn't wel known for good food but the Thief stole my heart. The rooms are clean, the bed is comforteble end the rooms all sound proof. Everything is as it should be! My compliments to the staff, especially the Blond girl who works at the restaurant! Bravo!!!

I am staying at this hotel right now and let me tell you, it has been hyped to be a luxury 5 star hotel and it definitely is NOT. It doesn't even come close to that! It's in the little details, like the rather disengaged reception staff and the mechanical check in. Nothing special about that, not even a "welcome... More

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
