Located on the edge of the beautiful Oslo Fjord, the Thief is an art enthusiast’s paradise. The hotel offers a uniquely luxurious experience for business travellers
Oslo is a city known for its sleek modernism, the high quality of life enjoyed by its population and the bountiful green spaces surrounding it. Travellers can expect to be dazzled by the city’s cutting-edge architecture, its beautiful fjord and the Nordmarka forest.
However, Oslo isn’t famed for its boutique hotels and accommodation in the capital can be a mixed bag. Located in the city’s art district, the Thief is a breath of fresh air: a luxury hotel that prides itself on its elegant style and unique character.

Based on the waterfront, the hotel offers picturesque views of the Tjuvholmen canals and Oslo Fjord, but it’s the interior that really gives this hotel its charm. The Thief is decorated with modern art loaned from the nearby art gallery, the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art, and curated by Sune Nordgren, the former director of Norway’s National Museum of Art. Your hotel key even grants you free access to the Astrup Fearnley Museum, which has displayed works by Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin over the years.
At the Thief, the quality is in the detail. The decor is refined, with rich tones of gold and charcoal grey interrupted by the occasional splash of colour from one of the hotel’s many eye-catching artworks. The spa offers a variety of international treatments, from Moroccan therapeutic clay to Turkish hamam baths.
Inside the modern guest rooms, you will find designer furniture, floor-to-ceiling windows and a private balcony. The hotel also has a rooftop terrace with panoramic views of the city and a restaurant boasting traditional Nordic cuisine with a modern twist. For anyone looking for a change of scenery, the Thief offers something new and unforgettable.
