I visited this hotel in October. I had expected a lot as the hotel is praised everywhere. The hotel has delivered on my expectations. I was there with a friend staying for the weekend to see Fleetwood Mac concert. As this is the only choice of a design hotel in the city, all major artists stay here as well when doing concerts in Oslo. So did the members of Fleetwood Mac band, so I could see them in the lobby before the concert.
The room is impressive, with a very good noise isolation and everything you would need. The bathroom is a bitty tiny. However the rooms have balconies, which is a plus if you are a smoker. In case you book a deluxe room, you are getting a wonderful water view.
You should ask for the room ending 10 to 16, as those have the best corner views. The higher the floor the better. Would recommend not lower than 6th.
Mini-bar is offering a lot. There are ice-machines on the floors. In general, The Thief sets up a new standard for the 5star hotels.
The service was average and not super-friendly, especially the male part of the reception, however the room so much over-performs, that in the end it compensates.
Would recommend staying there.More
