THE THIEF - YOUR NEAREST HIDEAWAYIt couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to THE THIEF and many more Oslo attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Oslo itinerary maker website.
Tjuvholmen (Thief Islet) used to be a haven for smugglers, thieves and scoundrels. Today it is home to THE THIEF, a modern hideaway – right in the middle of downtown Oslo. If anything gets stolen there nowadays, it’s usually us stealing our guests away from their everyday lives.
THE THIEF has filled this retreat with top international art pieces, carefully selected designer furniture, global Nordic cuisine, top quality spa and cosmopolitan bars. ‘Escapees’ are able to enjoy refreshing dips in the sea at the Tjuvholmen beach or stroll off the islet across the footbridge to the bustling Aker Brygge restaurant and business area. Most of our guests come here to get away from it all, and for the relaxing atmosphere of THE THIEF.
A sanctuary has never felt so comfortable and secluded yet connected.

Spent an enjoyable evening at The Thief bar drinking cocktails selected according to which photos I had been attracted to in a book. An unusual method of picking drinks but it worked for me as I found myself drinking whisky based cocktails. Okay it is bit faddy and might not work over repeat visits but it is undeniably fun and the staff were first class.
I have mixed feelings about The Thief after my stay. The rooms are fantastic and difficult to find fault with in terms of size and facilities. They are large and have a good size bathroom with bath and shower as well as the toilet being in a cubical. We did have some problems with getting the lighting sorted out for the night so that we could see without be dazzled by the motion activated bathroom light. There is a good quality coffee maker in the room and hot water is delivered in the evening together with herbal tea bags for a restful night. So now the parts that I wasn't very keen on. The Thief is a walk from any public transport so not great for getting to with cases in the snow in the winter. If you are going, take a taxi, it will save you a lot of trouble. The second part I didn't like was that the rooms looked out into apartments and offices, close enough to easily see what was going on inside and hence, I assume close enough for them to see in to the bedroom. Overall I would think twice about going back to The Thief even given the luxury of the rooms is attractive.
