The Thief


Occupying a superb location on the Tjuvholmen waterfront, once home to Oslo’s thieves and vagrants, The Thief is the jewel in the crown of this area’s urban regeneration project. This hotel boasts a hip, modern vibe, innovative architecture, stunning design furniture, and a magnificent collection of contemporary art.

The 119 guestrooms and suites ooze Nordic sophistication with a muted color scheme showcasing carefully chosen artworks. Rooms feature state-of-the-art technology, private balconies, and views of the Oslo fjord. For something different, try the disco-style Apparatjik Suite.

The Thief Foodbar dishes up gourmet Norwegian cuisine with a British twist and features lots of fresh seafood. If you’re visiting in summer, dine on the roof terrace or sip a craft cocktail while enjoying the views.

Guests get free entry to the neighboring Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, while the local area offers museums, galleries, and restaurants. After a busy day’s exploring, unwind in the indulgent spa.

Why we recommend The Thief

This is a distinctive and glamorous Oslo hotel filled with artworks and a chic atmosphere. The rooms are individually designed and quite simply fabulous: go for the disco ball inspired Apparatjik Suite or The Terence Conran Suite if you’re hoping to capture some unique Instagram shots.
