“Awesome stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

Located in the most fancy part of Oslo-Harbour, just perfect in any detail as room, view, location, bed, breakfast , amenities, receptionists. Nespresso machine inside the room makes you feel like at home.

The room is very well designed. Good use of space & ensuring comfort are taken care off. The bed is so comfortable with so many extra pillows (which I totally love). Room is equipped with a nespresso machine so you can make your very own coffee at the comfort of your room.
THe location is very good. Walking distance to restaurants & to a new art museum (Astrup Fearnley Museum). Oh yes.. their breakfast selection is good so make time for a leisurely breakfast.

I stayed at The Thief Hotel from April 1st to April 4th.The location is great, on the beautiful harbour. My bedroom had breathtaking views. The bed was sumptuous.The Chef cooked the breakfasts to perfection; also there is a delicious choice of cereals, breads, cheese, yogurts and fruit etc.I swam in the prettily , coloured lit pool each night, and went in the sauna and steam room. Everywhere in the hotel was spotlessly clean.All the hotel staff were so efficient, friendly and delightful.The Thief has a happy relaxed atmosphere.Oslo has great art and sculpture in the parks and museums.I really enjoyed.the fabulous, quirky collections in The Thief Hotel and next door at the Astrup Fearnley Museum.I think what makes The Thief Hotel so special, is its biggest asset, and that is Dominic the General Manager. He has such enthusiasm for the Hotel,the art and sculpture in the hotel and in Oslo.He makes all the guests feel so welcome. He is the soul of The Thief.

Room Tip: Room 614 had spectacular views.

There's only one weird thing at the thief: you get there by driving through an underground garage.
The rest is pure high design but with a warm interpretation and a bit of irony.
The rooms are quiet and well equipped, bed is extremely confortable and with a range of pillow among which you cam choose your favorite.
Each room has a coffee machine, free wi fi, a very nice bathroom and big wardrobes.
The hotel is located in The coolest downtown area, full of restaurants, bars and people, if weather is not too cold.
The restaurant is good but a bit ambitious in its presentation of conceptual food. You can check if your steak is properly done as the kitchen is open and you can look at the chefs creating your dishes.

Breakfast offers an excellent selection of continental and local options.
An airtight service completes a cosy stay.

The minute I arrived I fell in love with this place. Uber cool location and the hotel is clearly a passion and no expense has been spared. Every single aspect was wonderful. The check-in was spot on with the beautiful Helen making me feel so at ease and welcome. The room was beyond belief with so much attention to detail and thought put into it. Dinner and drinks were again sublime and the only shame of it is that I had only had 1 night and sadly didnt get time to try out the bath tub or the spa. The owners and operators should be congratulated on their efforts and they have left no stone unturned. Every member of the team not only looked great, but were attentive and so in keeping with the hotel. I will be back and I urge everyone to try this beutiful, well executed experience as they made me feel so very special. A MUST!

My family and I went to Oslo last year and to this day it was the best place I've ever been. Words can't describe it, so don't just read this to find out about it. JUST GO and EXPERIENCE it. A must do!!! If you've never went to Scandinavia, or any northern or Baltic region, it's a fantastic experience. Plus the locals are so friendly too.

Oslo has lacked a hotel of this caliber for a very long time. I was very happy to have had the chance to stay their with my group. Dominic was awesome from the very start. We felt welcome and taken care of by any staff member you ran into. The hotel is modern and the beds are well.....amazing!! We only had one evening here but very much looking forward to the next time.
Great spot to walk around the hotel and yet no to much noise at night. Right on the docks.
A very pleasant experience.
