The Thief — Oslo, Norway’s first waterfront hotel — opened Jan. 9 on the islet of Tjuvholmen, a former prisoner colony that has been transformed into a new, pedestrian-only urban development in the city center. The location features restaurants, contemporary architecture and the new Astrup Fearnley Museum along more than a mile of waterfront.
Accommodations in the nine-story, 119-room property include the penthouse Oslo Suite, equipped with a private terrace boasting a 360-degree view of the city. Public spaces and guestrooms feature contemporary art from the museum as well as a balcony. Other features include Geneva Sound Systems, complimentary Wi-Fi and Nespresso machines and Playstation and Wii games on demand.
The Thief’s Fru K restaurant is overseen by head chef Kari Innera with a focus on regional and organic Nordic cuisine.
Room rates start at about $380 per night, $4,500 for the Oslo suite.
