A superbe experience, trendy hotel, beautiful location close to the center of Oslo (but very quiet during the night). Very warm welcome from everyone, they really take care of their guests. We will come back !

Went for a weekend get away. The room is enough for two persons, no space for an extra bed. Huge amount of pillows, comfortable bed, nespresso machine and a drawer full of stuff for sale. The free amenities pretty simple considering the price and level of the hotel. Bathroom had a shower. Quite small to be honest but functional. Spa,...

On earlier stays we`ve been satisfied with the level of service, and we have had great experiences, well worth the money. But that was some years ago. Now we feelt like The Thief "stole" or money. This time we brought friends after highly recommending it. Sadly this felt just like an ordinary stay at any 3 star hotel, and something...

What elevates a hotel from good to superb is in the detail.This is a fabulous stylish hotel in great location with a wonderful chilled out vibe. The staff are all super helpful.But it fails in service and...

Booked a mutli-night stay. Room was Scandinavian Modern -mildly so. Very nice room. Good A.C, blinds to block out night lights nearby. We could see the Harbor and boats from our room. Very nice. Breakfast was included and it was excellent, but not American rather it was Norwegian. Many Norwegians stayed at the hotel and all were very pleasant and...

We love to have a night alone sometimes And when the babysitter comes we leaves for a night at the Thief in our own city in stead of a weekend abroad. It is so exotic and luxurious . The rooms are excellent, the restaurant is great and the breakfast is a dream.

This hotel is unique. Located in Oslos amusement centre. The design is modern and stylish, with lots of art. The rooms are big, with wonderful beds. The food, especially breakfast, and drinks (try the lobby bar) are fabulous. The spa makes you relax after a hard (?) day. And the service... close to perfect. The price is very high, even...

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
