This is a truly unique experience. The location is quite special...in a newly developed area of Oslo adjacent to a new modern museum. The owner-developer of the hotel is an art collector and generously shares his private collection with the museum and vice versa.
The staff is young, handsome, and attentive.
The bar has exceptional art including a few Damon Hirst skulls and some photos taken and printed by the queen. Get the idea?
The rooms themselves are beautifully appointed and are sleek and yet warm. The balance between luscious fabrics and hard surfaces creates a very interesting feeling. The lighting is amazing and the bathroom actually senses that someone is entering and turns on soft lighting. There are controls which enable you to create a sense of daylight, afternoon, or evening.
There is wonderful original artwork in the room. This has been one of the most exceptional hotel stays we have had. I will review the restaurant separately which was also superb.

- 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
