The Thief: Oslo’s Hippest Hotel
What was once a haven for thieves in the 18th century, is now home to the hippest hotel in Oslo, and the most sought after: THE THIEF. Today, if you are going to be robbed of anything at THE THIEF, it’s everyday worries and daily to-do lists. It’s located on Tjuvholmen (Thief Islet), which is an area known for its cultural panache of art museums, cutting edge architecture and innovative cuisine. So make sure you check out Oslo’s hippest hotel.
Right next to THE THIEF sits the renowned Renzo-Piano-designed Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art. The hotel owner just so happens to be a private sponsor of the museum, so expect a show-stopping display of borrowed art in THE THIEF. Just as breathtaking as the art is the backdrop of the Norwegian fjords right outside the waterfront hotel. And there is no shortage of impressive views thanks to floor to ceiling windows. Check out all the amazing amenities THE THIEF has to offer.
THE THIEF doesn’t just steal beauty and art from its surroundings through the hotel, it robs holistic and aesthetic inspiration from the rugged beauty of the Norwegian landscape for the THIEF SPA. Nourish your mind, body and spirit with the best of renowned wellness traditions and treatments from around the world. Trading in cucumber covered eyes and pan flute music for a swanky spa experience, the THIEF SPA features a cove like swimming pool, steam room and the city’s first hammam. Treatment rooms boast the latest technology and exotic materials sourced from around the globe.
After experiencing spa bliss, step into epicurean ecstasy at THIEF FOODBAR, one of Oslo’s top ten restaurants. Head chef David Taylor brings his culinary masterpieces alive with a focus on regional, local and organic ingredients, while staying true to the hotel’s commitment of sustainability. So, if you are looking to savor Scandinavia’s wild and pure flavors, expect to find them on Taylor’s regular changing menu. If you haven’t got your fill of the mesmerizing views, the crown jewel of the property is THIEF ROOF restaurant and bar. A sprawling garden terrace, impeccable views of the fjord and harbor side cityscape – not to mention the summer THIEF Music Unplugged session – makes it the place to be in Oslo.
At the end of the day retreat to one of the lavish rooms and suites, which possess their own unique personality. Handpicked artwork coupled with furnishings from world renowned designers creates a timeless elegance. For never ending views book a suite, each of the Standard, Superior and Deluxe Rooms as well as the Junior Suites feature balconies, some with views of the fjord and the canals.
