Ranked #3 of 102 Hotels in Oslo
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 October 2017 via mobile

Checked in late Tuesday the 17th exhausted. Slept soundly as i sunk into a perfect mattress with soft sheets a fluffy comforter, Floating on a cloud! Hit the spa, steam rooms & pool next morning. Started coming back to life. The hotel has balconies so you can get fresh air or have a smoke if desired. The lighting throughout the hotel including in the rooms dim or turns off when it senses still ness and when the motion detector picks up your presence they slowly dim up to full brightness, very sexy! One of the little pet peeves i have is hotels that have a separate log in & pass for the lobby than when ur in your room and sometimes different in a restaurant or on a roof garden. WHY!!! Last week i was i lisbon for one day my room had a personalized log in & pass. So when i went to a another room for a mtg i had to log in to his wifi because mine was out if range! Are you mad! Just make wifi access easy as the Thief does. The policies or methods they chose create no stress to me actually I’m excited & pleased and relaxed in appreciation. A philosophy more hotels should consider.

The waterfront area around the hotel is filled with shops & great eateries! There is an overwhelming focus on serving the human condition to promote a smile. Places to just sit and contemplate life surrounded by art & mostly modern architecture and large retrofitted buildings.

The people who work at the hotel are also helpful with a focus on satisfying you. The staff in the restaurant are great. The breakfast buffet is perfect, love my personalized bottles of beet or carrot & ginger juice. There was never a “NO”during my entire stay. We need more hotels that hit the heart so squarely. Who ever is responsible for creating this elegant & exclusive getaway should be proud. My thanks to your vision & it being realized by such a great team of employees.

The Thief is not just a hotel, its more like an experience, from when you enter the hotel until you find the view from your room or visit the bar. Very friendly staff that assist you with all your needs or questions. Surprisingly well equiped mini bar ;-) have a look and try not to giggle.

From the moment you walk in you are stolen away from your everyday life! The details all over are spectacular. Prosecco was ready on ice and emember to visit the spa! The quality is amazing. A really good experience!

Amazing culture and a great team.. the hotel hits all the points for physical things like rooms and facilities. But the team are really positive and nothing ever too hard. in touch with good restaurants. I was visiting on business for the first time so they were just really helpful.

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
