A very elegant eco-friendly hotel with superb staff. Friday night was rowdy outside due to a bunch of teenagers. The view was on the water and superb . The room was not able to be cooled below 20 degrees Celsius so we could not shut the windows sleep and keep the rowdiness out. Thank Go they did not return. Very...

I had such a hard time choosing between "Very Good" and "Excellent" for Thief! Some things were so good; the food, the attractiveness of the hotel, the bar and the rooms, the friendliness of the staff, the location, the food and cocktails. Others aspects were not so good. The rooms were small and had little room to hang our clothes....

Nice hotel located on the harbour in Oslo. The room was very nice with one amazing bed. The bathroom was huge, with a tub which was a welcomed bonus. The wifi worked very well but the desk was a little same. The lobby bar was a great place to grab a night cap. A great stay with very friendly staff.

This hotel gives everything a traveller wants: upscale rooms with nice decorations, excellent bar(tenders), fantastic breakfast and most of all very, very friendly people assisting you. I had room 614 which had an excellent view. The hotel is located in a new part of the city next to a museum of art.

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
