The Thief Hotel Oslo: beautiful design, great location

The Thief Hotel Oslo is a fantastic place to stay because of its gorgeous interior (and exterior) design and its location, a new district called Tjuvholmen, which is still a short walking distance from the center of Oslo. Tjuvholmen has a 2-kilometre seafront (which is pedestrian and bike-friendly) with numerous restaurants and cafes, and the stunning new Astrup Fearnley Museum designed by Renzo Piano. Nearby lies a small bathing platform (if you dare to jump into the cold, clear waters) and a lovely marina. The Thief Restaurant offers delicious modern Norwegian food featuring seasonal specialties. The breakfast at the restaurant is quite amazing, a big departure from the usual hotel breakfast fare. The small rooftop terrace and bar is a relaxing place to hang out after a long day walking around Oslo. In short, the Thief Hotel Oslo is one of my favourite hotels in the world and I would stay there again the next time I visit Oslo.
