Recently I’ve been reading a lot of the Harry Hole novels by Jo Nesbo. They mostly take place in Norway, specifically Oslo. Because of this I’ve been thinking a lot about visiting Oslo and found this interesting Design Hotel, The Thief, located on the island of Tjuvholmen.
The waterfront district of Tjuvholmen was known in the 18th century as “Thief Island”. It’s now one of Scandinavia’s most exciting urban renewal projects, as a thriving center for business, art, and nightlife.
The hotel is right next to the Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art and has 119 rooms and suites with waterfront views. The boutique hotel is filled with original artwork selected by curator Sune Nordgren.
Each of the 119 rooms contains French balconies. The Oslo Suite offers a 360-degree panoramic view from its own rooftop terrace.
The interiors is cutting edge and well designed. In addition to pieces by classic and well known designers, guests will find pieces from Norwegian up-and-comers.
When I finally do visit Norway, I’ll be stopping off at The Thief for a quick stay. What do you think of this boutique hotel?
