    A Bit Lacking in Time and Depth
    This series has good and bad points, but I feel the negative outweigh the good.
    The palette is straight out of the late 1990s. This incredibly retro feel is a good point for me, because I still love that era, but it may turn some people off as archaic.

    The episode length appears to be only three minutes. I'm not sure what you would use this for, part of a composite show with multiple ...

    Really not that bad a show
    Like others have mentioned, it's really not that bad, It's a 3 minute anime to include the credits. Seems like some people where expecting war and peace or something. Each skit tackles a very small subset of the going ons of a hotel in a humorous way with what can be only described as an ex super spy ninja.

    I dont know what these others are wathcing.
    After reading the reviews for this I thought it was going to be garbage. It wasn't bad. It was comedy that's all. There doesn't need to be a plot in a 3 min video. I am giving it 4 stars because it was just a series of skits put together overall was entertaining. May want to work on the jokes a bit but not bad.

    As far as the animation is concerned its a 3 min video, what are looking for come ...

    Love the classic style.
    These are like little comic strip shorts surrounding a downtown hotels staff.
    The main character is a fighter of unmatched stength but cute and innocent. She acts as the bouncer and keeps troublemakers away from the hotel. The supporting cast has your usual flair; a unmarried manager feeling her clock ticking, her smoooth talking brother/manager, 4-eyes, the normal-ish clerk, and the inept hotel ...

    I WISH THERE WERE MORE LIKE THIS!
    Each episode is only 3 minutes in duration and although the only setting is the hotel, every episode takes on a totally different premise. The writing is clever, as the show pokes fun at anime cliches very often. I really hope there's a follow-up to this some day or the same makers do something else that is constantly changing and upbeat like this.

    I watched every ...

    Not bad, just not amazing either
    I just watched 7 episodes back-to-back (kind of hard not to lol) & it really isn't as bad as people are saying. The fact is: IT'S A 3 MIN ANIME. Meaning: There's not gonna be a lot of character and story development. Don't look for that here and get upset when you don't see it, that one was your fault. It's cute/funny show, slightly jumpy (not like what the cover picture implies, everyone is ...

  • Not the Greatest, but Potential is Present
    This is actually the lowest rating I've ever given an anime, and it makes me sad to do so. But, I want to point out the flaws (and some good points) so that they can be learned from and so that more better anime can be made in the future! So here goes:
    The concept isn't actually that bad. It's kind of the trope where there is a character who is amazing at everything (example: Sebastian from Black ...

  • Don't judge a book by it's cover!
    Ok so this is the best example of: "Don't judge a book by it's cover"
    Looking at the art it looked like I was about to jump into one of those American "how to draw anime/manga" books which gave me the impression of a bad anime, but what I got was a LOL story. It's short and simple which is something perfect to watch during your break.
    It's basically a short comic anime.

  • Brief But Enjoyable!
    This series consist of twelve very brief episodes that center on Sparrow's Hotel and Sayuri Satou, the new front desk attendant with the skills of an assassin. This is a comedy and it is entertaining. If you are looking for something short and enjoyable then I would recommend this series. However, the abrupt ending and small length of episodes did leave a bit to be desired. I feel this could have ...

  • Just a short stay spot
    This show is not as bad as some reviewers say. It's not a landmark anime either. If your expectations are reasonable, its an enjoyable collection of shorts, very short shorts. In all attempts ever made to have any type (TV, Anime, movies) show based on a hotel, this deserves a top 5. Clever writing, a nice variety of characters, and character design, helps my opinion of Sparrow's Hotel. Watch this ...
