Great location, beautifully designed, warm atmosphere ('hygge' deluxe! :)), and super friendly staff! Rooms are very comfortable and I was lucky also having a lovely view towards the Oslofjord! The breakfast had a great selection and was of high quality. All in all;...

Possibly the best hotel I have ever stayed at. Beautifully designed, packed full of luxury items. Beautiful decor and great view. The morning breakfast is a must with tons of delicious options. Wish we could stay longer.

Well, I think this is far the best hotel in Scandinavia. The devil is in the details and the details were good! Room a bit small but hey, we're in Scandinavia. Comfortable bed. Everything works. Impeccable service. Everyone proud of what they do. Only issue is location - great for leisure but not so convenient for business.

Located in a quiet and exclusive area of Oslo. A great place for both business and pleasure. The hotel it`s self is worth a visit. Exclusive five star rooms and highly rewarded hotel says it all.

Great hotel at a great location in the city. The spa was really good, make sure that you participate in the Sauna ritual. Nice big rooms with high standard and great amenities. Only issue we during our stay was that there was a period of time during the morning with no hot water in the shower.

I stayed at The Thief Hotel in Oslo from 27-30 January 2017 in a Superior Room. I went for dinner in hotel restaurant. Waited over an hour, and after asking twice about my meal, I received it, was offered an apology and a discount, which I accepted, fair enough. Other than that, I loved my room, the very comfortable bed,...

Wow... just Wow. This hotel is so beautiful and the service level, food, bar etc. is world class. Often this is very difficult to find in scaniavia where most hotels are chains trying to standalize with average boring experience. The Thief stands out - Great Experience

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
