The Thief is trendy, upscale and inviting in the harbor area of Oslo. The setting is modern, rooms are nice - great amenities and the staff warm and welcoming. The views are mixed depending on room level - but the harbor views are a short few minutes walk. You will be in the center of many restaurants and harbor side...

The Thief is a superb hotel. Located at the harbour, many rooms with great views over the water, and only a 2 or 3 minute easy walk into the centre of Oslo. The immediate area is modern, lively without being noisy, and fun. The hotel itself is beautifully and comfortably appointed with excellent attention to detail throughout, whether that is...

We stayed here for two nights at the end of our tour of Norway. The room was amazing, the staff was very friendly, and the included breakfast was very extensive (and great quality). At first, we were concerned the hotel was a bit farther from downtown than we wanted, however in reality, the walk is short, and the hotel is...

We stayed here for 3 nights upon arrival in Oslo. The hotel is located in the harbour area within easy walking distance of restaurants and bars. The staff is extremely friendly and will go out of their way to help you. The rooms are large and there is a drawer choc-a-block full of items you may have forgotten to bring....

I've used this hotel a lot for business meetings, but this was my first time staying there privately overnight. We had a lovely spa experience, and the room with the amazing view was so inviting that we decided to just stay in and order room service. I've eating in the restaurant many times, and recommend that for sure, but the...

Was here for just one night but wish it could've been longer! The hotel is immaculate and the rooms are very comfortable. Yes the view could have been better but I was too busy exploring Oslo for that to matter at all. The hotel is in a hip and happening part of town close to the water so there are...

What's best about The Thief? I think it is the welcoming and professional staff! From the second you enter, you are carefully taken care of, every step of the stay.

We really liked the hotel, the rooms, the atmosphere, the staff, the spa. The only let down was the restaurant, not a big let down, but still a let down, that's why 4 stars and not 5, We still highly recommend it and will stay there again.

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
