About us

A little island, a whole ocean of experiences. With Oslo’s most spectacular location THE THIEF steals its guests away from everyday life.

Tjuvholmen – the city district which was once home to criminals and shady dealings is now a power centre for contemporary art and good city living at the water’s edge.

International-calibre restaurants, cosy eateries and high-quality galleries sit side by side in pedestrianised streets and squares. And the Astrup Fearnley Museum designed by Italian star architect Renzo Piano, is the hotel’s nearest neighbour.

THE THIEF reflects its surroundings. From the balcony you can enjoy the view of the fjord. Inside curator Sune Nordgren has hand-picked contemporary art which inspires, surprises and creates aesthetic experiences. The rooms have designer furniture from national and international quality producers selected by interior designer Wille Våge. The building was designed by Mellbye Arkitekter.

The best local ingredients are served in the hotel’s restaurants THIEF RESTAURANT. In the summer our guests may enjoy cold drinks with a view at THIEF ROOF.

At THE THIEF we treat rock stars as guests and guests as rock stars. We swear by quality, concentrate on details and stretch ourselves to surprise you as a guest. This is how we create hotel experiences.

THE THIEF is a lifestyle hotel based on a fundamental philosophy of sustainability and local qualities.

THE THIEF is a cash free hotel. We therefore encourage our guests to use electronic payment options; together we set the agenda for the future. As a consumer this will ensure you more freedom and better security.
