Delivers five star quality

This is a five star hotel in a good location on the relatively new waterfront area of Oslo. If you arrive by car or motorcycle, you need to enter what looks like an underground carpark to get to the front of the hotel - there is a very small sign on the entry wall of the car park saying "the thief" among other things. It is easy to miss, but ask a taxi driver in the rank next to the carpark if you are unsure. Check in was seamless and you get free entry to the nearby art gallery with your room key. The rooms are clean, nicely appointed and have everything you would expect from a five star hotel, including in-room temperature control and a Nespresso machine. Laundry is outrageously expensive, but there are at least three self serve laundromats in Oslo in walking distance (we went to cafe laundromat, about 25 minutes easy walk). The rooftop bar is okay, if you are young and a smoker. The restaurant serves good food from a limited menu (at a price) and has an excellent wine list. The fine dining restaurant (Fru K) is closed for the summer (as many Scandinavian restaurants do). We would stay here again when in Oslo.

One of my favourite hotels in he world

I am a regular guest at the Thief. I like the relaxed luxury at this establishment, no snobism, just good service. The breakfast buffet is the best proof that it does not need to be giant all the time. Locally produced organic products of top quality. All I need, simply perfect. For my las visit I had booked a car to pick me up at the airport. Somehow the reservation system went funny and sent the hotel a cancellation message, which I found out when nobody was waiting for me at the airport and I called the hotel. They asked me to take a taxi and the hotel paid for the bill. Service at its best I call that.

We stayed at The Thief for 4 nights in July. Everything was top notch! Nice rooms with small balcony with views over the canal and harbor. The morning breakfast service was outstanding. The entire Tjuvholmen district is a wonderful modern development with great architecture, shopping, and dining. Enjoyed access to the Astrup Fearnley Museum as part of the reservation.

If you´re reading this, you already know that THE THIEF is a top notch hotel with prime location down by the sea on lovely Tjuvholmen. Still, I must say I´m amazed by the service, quality and level of comfort this hotel has to offer. Everything you expect from a 5* is there. Already from the booking process the staff are incredible service minded, coming up with solutions which fits our requests for the stay. We had a great time at the THIEF SPA, and a special thanks to Victoria who really made us feel taken cared of with prosecco, and a surprise birthday goody bag to my girlfriend. Also a special mention to Silje in the reception for taking care of our booking and reservations to the restaurant. Also, the three course chef menu on the roof was excellent. Birthday drinks appreciated! Some might think it´s pricey, but I´ll guarantee you it´s worth it! THE THIEF is a world-class hotel, period.

Booked direct with the hotel for three nights in one of their Deluxe rooms as they have the best views according to the room categorisation. The view, however, is a little disappointing as there are other buildings around the hotel and you have to make do with the gaps though I am sure these are the rooms with best access to these gaps. Don’t get me wrong here - what you can see is good just don’t expect panoramic views. We went out onto our balcony to have a look at the view for a few minutes each day. It’s not big enough to do much more than stand on with a drink in your hand but it is there and if the sun is shining (and you have a drink) then it’s a nice place to wait while your wife finishes getting ready before you go out for the evening. We flew into Gardermoen airport. Getting into the centre of Oslo the fastest and simplest way is on the train. Without even going outside it’s a credit card swipe (see the video on the flytoget.no website for that and other details) through the barrier and down onto the platform. Get off at Nationaltheatret. The hotel website says that you can walk to the hotel in 15 minutes from there. You can. A taxi will take about 3 minutes though (and cost about 100NOK). The hotel check-in was quick and easy and then we get to the bit where people expect this sort of hotel to take your bags up to your room. What you get is a key card and the person who checked you in calls the lift and you are on your own. Understand the economics in Norway and you see that what you expect anywhere else would cost even more here, that is, your room rate would be so much higher you might just decide not to stay here (in Norway). Call it the Norwegian normal. In the room there was a whole drawer of items you might want to purchase with more on request from reception. Plenty of drinks in the mini bar and free ice available from a dispenser by the lifts. On the first night we didn’t get the turn down service but it happened on the other two nights after we mentioned it at reception. This was something different from other places we have been in that it was a flask of relaxing green tea and a brownie. If the evening is warm and sunny then don’t miss the Thief Roof Bar. Note that it does get busy with locals and we saw many people come up early evening look around and leave as there was no where left to sit. We had drinks and burgers, which many other customers also ordered and were very nice. Breakfast is a buffet affair and has all the bases covered regional and health. It was a particular highlight for me. The Thief Bar on the ground floor was a quiet oasis on arriving back one evening and the barman was very good at giving us something we hadn’t tried before after talking about what we liked. However it was also rammed full on one of the other evenings after an event on the Roof Bar was moved there because it was a bit windy. Within easy walking distance is the recently redeveloped harbour area with a lot of options for eating and drinking. Great to sit for a couple of hours in the afternoon with a bottle of Prosecco people watching. They all have heaters and blankets for your knees if it gets a bit chilly in the outside areas. Most of the tourist stuff is also in easy walking distance. The Viking museum is a ten minute boat trip from the harbour and is frequent when the museums are open. Make sure you buy a return ticket from the kiosk as it’s the same price each way if you pay on board. The Palace is another five minutes walk from the harbour and the shops ten minutes back into the city. If you want something expensive then tax free shopping means UK residents can end up paying about ten percent less than in London once you get the refund. It costs more in the shop but get them to do the paperwork and collect a refund at the airport. Just before we left we had a look round the Oslo Suite, which has an upstairs terrace on what is basically the rooftop (next to the Thief Roof Bar). This is very nice if you want to spend the money.
