Reviewed December 19, 2013

My husband and I stayed there with our six year old and it was a great experience. The staff was very helpful and proffesional. We could not have been any happier and will definitely stay there if we can make it back to Oslo. The breakfast in the restaurant was a perfect way to start the day and we thought the price of the hotel seemed reasonable based on Scandinavian prices. Not really any more than one might pay for a nice hotel in the states. We travel quite a bit and the thief is one of our favorite hotels! Absolutely recommend staying there, especially after the spa opens.

This is a great place to stay in Oslo it is ultra modern and while the rooms are not large they are comfortable and full of tech. The service is impeccable with everyone very happy to assist wether they be waiting staff or reception.
There is a real novelty of being on an island where cars have to come through a small tunnel to get on it and the location on the water makes for a great walk along the harbour front. The extra bonus is the wide choice of restaurants within easy walking distance.
The gym and spa open in 2014 and I would highly recommend this place for any form of short or medium stay in Oslo.

Greetings and many thanks for your review of our property . Very glad that you enjoyed your stay and the quirky location . Were situated on a new peninsular on the Oslo Fjord and as you mentioned there is a tunnel and a very large shoe ( you have to see it ) on the way to the hotel . Our Gym and Spa are now open and a great addition to our property .

Looking forward to your return

From the airport pick up and return all was perfect.
Rooms are small but with great view to the bay. Staff was very friendly and always willing to help.
The girls at reception were fantastic from saturday till tuesday when we left
The moving pictures at both elevators were quite interesting.
The bathroom although medium size lacked more space for our own toiletries.
Very well located in the most modern area of Oslo, on man made isles with very nice restaurants, at just 10 minute walk from down town
Tom the driver that drove us around and Katrina from front desk deserve a high mark. If wasn't for the room being small hotel would get excellent rating.
When going back to Oslo, we will go back to this hotel.

Room Tip: 8th floor rooms with sea view

I stayed two nights at this hotel and very much enjoyed my stay. After living three years in Oslo I went back to visit my friends on the weekend and I tried to pick the best hotel to make my weekend even nicer. The hotel is located at an excellent location, posh area of Oslo. The staff at hotel are very professional, attentive, friendly and helpful. The check-in and check-out were very smooth and extremely fast. The minibar in hotel room and the bar in the hotel are very good. The room is very clean, perfectly designed and furnished. The bed is the most comfortable bed that I have ever experienced in a hotel ( I am business traveler and fly at least once a week with an overnight). The room temperature, touch screen, automatic lights, iron and iron-table, big mirrors, high windows were very impressive. The breakfast was great. The internet connection is good and a free. The only downside is that my room was small (728), big enough to sleep but did not big enough to enjoy a cosy evening. I will definitely be back.

Room Tip: I can only suggest not to pick x28.

greetings and many thank for your review of The Thief . As you mentioned were located on a brand new peninsular on the Oslo Fjord . Glad you enjoyed the technology in the room as we paid particular attention to the needs of our guests and the exciting alternatives we could provide in the rooms . Always very pleasing to hear your comments about the service and staff and once again the BED is the star of the show . A recurring theme where our reviews are concerned

Very much looking forward to your return

The Thief is the best hotel in Oslo. Very good location in the new area Tjuvholmen. Very nice rooms with large tv, bed, and bath. Some of the best beakfasts in Norway. Very good service both on arrival and in the restaurant. The hotel is decorated with good pieces of contemerary art.

I stayed at The Thief for business in December 2013 and LOVED it!

It is very stylish and modern, yet comfy and cosy. The beds are very comfortable, they have lovely Rituals toiletries and excellent service.

The only downside was the limited room service menu, particularly given that their restaurant closes at 8pm on Sundays.

Overall, The Thief was definitely one of the best hotels I stayed in recently.

This is a very stylish modern hotel - great location on the waterfront and ideally placed for all the bars, restaurants, galleries and shops in Tjuvholmen. Extremely modern with all the touches like a Samsung tablet to control the room technologies, beautiful dark woods and high windows with modern art around every corner. Service and staff are also excellent - its just a very stylish, cool hotel overall. Probably the only small criticism would be the rooms aren't huge but then that's city hotels for you, not a big deal. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: Pay the £40 extra for the view with the deluxe room
