My husband and I stayed at The Thief for three days earlier in July. This is a very nice, extremely clean, modern hotel, with an ideal location for restaurants etc. The bed was beyond comfortable!! Breakfast was delicious and staff attentive. Check in was super fast with no fuss. Our luggage was already in our room as we had used a courier service to deliver it as we were en route on the Norway in a Nutshell tour. Check out was just as simple and all staff extremely courteous.
I do have a couple of points I would like to mention though. Despite booking a large deluxe room with water view, we were a little disappointed to find that the room was smaller than anticipated and you really had to be out on the balcony to see the water, rather than simply looking out of the window, so it wasn't the water view we were looking forward to. This was mentioned to staff as we believed we may have been given a standard or superior room but it was confirmed that we did in fact have a deluxe room and there were no other larger rooms with a better view available.
This was no fault of the hotel, just a design fault, but at a 5 star luxury hotel, you would expect that the bath mat would stay dry outside the shower door, but alas this was not meant to be and the door would not open with the mat in place. Neither was there a towel rail anywhere near the shower door which seemed a little odd.
I would expect to pay for specific treatments, but I would not expect to have to pay a spa access fee to use the swimming pool. This should definitely have been included in the room rate.
All in all a very nice stay, but we have stayed in better 5 Star hotels in other areas of the world.

- Stepping into THE THIEF is sure to rob you of something. Something familiar and shall we say, enslaving at times. And the thing is that the hotel is so good at it… that you might not notice until the end.
