Remarkable views, very comfortable rooms. Amazing breakfast. Great location in one of the most active spots in Oslo. Very much enjoyed our stay, especially if you're willing to walk the waterfront a bit (we were able to walk to the fortress, opera house, and train station from here, but it is 15-30 minutes walk to each of those).

The room was excellent, as was the breakfast and the shared areas. The staff were great and managed to get us a room even though we arrived quite early off the ferry from Copenhagen. Location is great, in a nice and new part of Oslo which is very close to the sighseeing boat terminals, a quick walk to the station,... More

Bucket list for sure!!!! 5+ star. If you enjoy breakfast buffets this is your place. Food is so clean and fresh with unbelievable service. Eggs benidict made fresh (takes only 10 minutes). Location is amazing and having a balcony watching cruiships, wood boats, paddle boarders and people jumping in, is just amazing! Treat yourself, you are worth it!

The staff is fabulous - really friendly and alert at all time. The food is great as they use local Norwegian produce, fresh, organic and really tasty. The location is at the seaside and very central. Worth a visit - definitely! Enjoy the Thief and Oslo.

A new, gracious yet sophisticated hotel in a great location by the harbor promenade downtown. Everything is surprising and gorgeous including the fantastic breakfast. Delicious breads and spreads and a noteworthy Eggs Benedict. Kudos to the breakfast chef for the tiny portions of delicious fresh homemade smoothies. Attention to detail everywhere you look. Great art in the elevators. A truly... More

Hotels generally don't make my trip but it's hard to forget this one. For a few days, it's like I took on someone's life, someone hipper, sleeker and stylish than myself. Although I couldn't figure out many of the controls of the uber modern room, one can spend all day enjoying the modern decor. People watching from the balcony is... More

State of the art hotel smack bang in a bustling harbour side setting. Not cheap, but nothing in Oslo is. Close to all the major tourist spots, a good choice for a special city break . Too many cushions for my liking, but that's just me. Superb breakfast, attentive helpful staff.

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
