The Theif

The Thief is Oslo’s newest and most talked about hotel to come on the scene and rightly so! The modern decor, design and its ethos is something the city hasn’t seen before and its popularity with both guests and locals is testament to the hotel’s success.The Thief has a superb location on the island of Tjuvholmen, meaning Thief Island. Once a dodgy part of town home to thieves and criminals, Tjuvholmen is now one of the smartest areas boasting contemporary art galleries, modern accommodation complete with decked rooftops and polished restaurants, all on the water’s edge overlooking the Oslofjord.

The Thief is not your average art hotel. Its permanent collection was curated by the former director of Norway’s National Museum of Art and its lounge hosts concerts, fashion shows, and book launches. The guest experience is equally exceptional. Breathe in the fresh sea air. Take in the stunning fjord views. Work out at the gym. Get a decadent Moroccan clay spa treatment and then dine on fresh catches and weekend brunch buffets. Explore Oslo and make memories no one can take away.

The Thief’s 116 rooms and suites are luxuriously decorated with rich colours, fabrics and soft furnishings and fitted with all the mod-cons including Geneva sound systems, docking station, Nespresso coffee machines and plasma TVs with movies on demand. Most bathrooms have walk-in showers while some have a bath as well. Free WiFi is available throughout.

The Theif Standard Room

Standard Room

There is nothing standard about THE THIEF, not even our Standard rooms. The same high quality runs throughout the hotel: The comfort, the efficiency and the cleverly thought out layout of the rooms. We are sure you will enjoy the bedside light control, the balcony, the creative selection in our in-room shop, the full body mirrors by the door – or our little prank of having an extra pillow in the closet even though there are already nine pillows on the bed.

The Theif Superior Room

Superior Room

Our 30 square meter superior rooms have the same sleek wooden floors and the floor-to-ceiling windows of our standard rooms. They are just a little more spacious. Sometimes a little extra leg-room is just what you need to fully enjoy your hideaway on our little island in the city.

The Theif Deluxe Room

Deluxe Room

Wake up to soothing views of the Oslo archipelago and the beautiful fjord. The stunning sea vistas from a private balcony could make you reluctant to ever leave your room. Should you decide to stay holed up in your little paradise, we’d be happy, of course, to bring your breakfast to your room.

The Theif Premium Room

Premium Room

Wake up to the stunning view of the Oslofjord. Enjoy your morning coffee on the balcony as boats and ships pass by the Astrup Fearnley museum.

On the dining side, though Oslo is renowned for its cuisine, The Thief can compete on every level with the very best. There are three different restaurants and bars to choose from for a fabulous meal, whether it’s the renowned Thief burger from the Foodbar, or the sensational 5-course tasting menu from Fru K. A cocktail in The Thief Bar is not to be missed and is as popular with the locals as with guests. In the summer The Thief Rooftop bar opens up and is the perfect place to soak up the sun with a glass of wine.
