The Thief is a luxury hotel located on a recently redeveloped peninsula of land -- formerly docks -- easy walking distance from the city center. This area -- the Aker Brygge neighborhood -- just lovely; every building is an architectural gem, if you like modern buildings or thoughtful renovations of older brick structures (see pictures). Full of energy, galleries, shops, office buildings and up-market housing it is vibrant, confident and forward looking. It is hard to completely separate my rating of The Thief from its wonderful location (and I believe it is the only hotel in this immediate area); certainly both the location benefits from the hotel and the hotel from the neighborhood. As nice as Docklands is, for example, it is far from the center of London; ditto with the emerging neighborhood at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. So this area is very special, and unusual, in Europe; although there are certainly very lovely areas right around the harbors in Stockholm and Helsinki that are somewhat similar they are not whole new neighborhoods as this is. The Thief itself is a seven story structure, architecturally consistent with the adjacent area. Rooms are modern, quiet, beautifully furnished. Beds are great with lovely down quilts and fine linens. Internet was little slow, but our room was at the very end of the hall, a corner room, on the 5th floor ... thus at the far end of the repeaters for the WiFi, I presume. The hotel's restaurant dinner menu is a little too 'modern' for my taste at dinner time, but there is an outstanding, varied, buffet breakfast for guests which I highly recommend. Given the number of restaurants within walking distance, we dined out every night except the first, including one of the very best meals of our lives at Hos Thea (separately reviewed). If you have rolling luggage (like a carry-on) and a back pack or brief case, you can and should take the high-speed train from the airport and walk to the hotel. If you have some luggage which does not have wheels -- as we did (a large North Face duffel) and it is too heavy to carry (along with other luggage) -- then let the hotel arrange transportation from the airport (limo or a negotiated rate for a cab). Most urban, younger Norwegians speak excellent English, and certainly this was the case with the hotel staff. That said, take a little extra time to be clear in any written instructions you give them in advance by email. I was not, and this caused confusion about a restaurant reservation; the staff quickly rectified the matter (which as I said was at least partially my fault). As others have pointed out in their reviews, this is not an inexpensive hotel. Given the site, the excellent facilities, the service and the ambience, however, I did not regret our choice or the cost. It has my full recommendation.

I was fortunate enough to stay at The Thief with my son and his two friends in August. I cannot say enough good things about the Thief. The location, decor, service, amenities and food service were all excellent. But what makes this hotel exceptional is Dominic, the Guest Relations Manager. From the minute of our arrival until check out at a very early hour, Dominic was there to ensure we had a wonderful time (despite having many celebrity clients during a music festival). I have traveled extensively and never met a manager who cares as deeply as Dominic. You can tell by the exceptional nature of his hotel. Thank you again for a wonderful time.

The Theif was absolutely a five star hotel. It was located in the modern and happening Aker Brygge neighbourhood and fitted in. The bar was cool and quirky and the the overall feel was one of luxury and style. However, as expected the hotel does come with a five star price tag! Breakfast were absolutely delicious. The gym was well equipped and modern, we didn't try the spa but it looked good. Overall a great stay in a luxurious and quirky setting!

Friendly service, great decor and excellent restaurant. Also in an good waterfront location with lots of retail around (if that's your thing). The only reason for not giving a 5 rating is that it is very fully priced. Only minor quibble was it took us several minutes to work out how to switch the lights on when we first entered the room.

Even the check-in was scheduled for 15:00 h we could check-in immediately at our arrival at 11:00 h. As we were not familiar with the technique in the room we asked someone from the staff. We got a very helpful explanation. Most we enjoyed the location of the hotel and the excellent view to the see from our balcony. Every morning we enjoyed an opulent breakfast with organic food and friendly service. The hotel is really a place for beeing comfortable.
