Boasting a waterfront location on Tjuvholmen (Thief Islet), once a haven for smugglers, thieves and scoundrels and now Oslo’s ultra-trendy art district, boutique hotel The Thief is within minutes of the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art and within easy walking distance of Aker Brygge’s waterfront promenade and the city centre is a 15 minute stroll away.
Behind its contemporary exterior, luxuriously rich colours, designer furniture and carefully chosen works of art including pieces by renowned artists such as Jeff Koons, Andy Warhol and Sir Peter Blake, all add to the sophisticated ambiance. With impeccable attention to detail, tastefully decorated guest rooms and suites feature the latest in-room technology, exclusive artworks, private balcony and floor to ceiling windows allowing for stunning views.
The hotel’s restaurant, the laidback and elegant Thief Foodbar serves a sumptuous buffet breakfast, a popular weekend brunch and delectable interpretations of Nordic dishes using local and seasonal produce in the evenings. The cosy bar tempts with signature cocktails from award-winning bartenders and in summer drinks and dining is possible at the 9th floor Roof Grill and Roof Bar where views extend as far as to the hills of Holmenkollen.
Indulgent treatments and massages, a Turkish hammam and sauna, plus an indoor pool and a fitness area complete the Thief Spa facility.
