About The Thief, Oslo
Each of The Thief's 118 spacious rooms is replete with luxury living touches, including rainforest showers, floor to ceiling windows and private balconies. The décor combines timeless elegance with contemporary art and design while maintaining comfort and cosiness throughout. Owned by Norwegian billionaire with a passion for art, you'll find unusual sculptures and paintings in the hotels open areas. While the hotel oozes extravagance and glamour, Tjuvholmen was formerly known as a seedy dockyard famous for its criminal dealings - tjuv means thief - but its extensive gentrification has reinvented the area as an influential centre for contemporary art and affluence. The Thief's location provides easy access to many of the district's vibrant nightlife hotspots surrounding the Aker Brygge harbour.
Once you've had your fill of sightseeing, unwind with a drink inside the hotel bar, a favourite hangout for some of Norway's elite, or take in the outstanding views from the roof terrace during the summer months. The hotel's own Restaurant Fru K has an exquisitely imagined a la carte menu which offers a modern twist on Norwegian and Scandinavian classics.
