    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 ...

  • 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 ...

  • it took me longer to write this review than to watch this series...
    I cannot imagine this series being expanded to a full length 26 episode series. And that's why it works! No need to explore these characters it's like an ongoing SNL sketch and the fact that it doesn't promise to be or try to be anything more. That's the charm. Comedies tend to over exert themselves or run to the well one too many times. This was a refreshing comedy that took it's premise and ...

  • It just isn't that good
    It had funny moments, and it seems like it might be full of fridge humor...but it's not. It's just bland. The premise has promise, as do the characters, but not much is done with either. It also has awful animation. I don't say that often, because even shows with little frame movement usually manage to make the most of what they have. Here, though, the animation is very inconsistent. I swear they ...

  • Short and cute, but where's the second season?
    I'm disappointed with some of the low ratings. It's a really adorable show. For the length of each episode, you can't get much characterization, but it leaves a nice warm feeling once you're finished.
    Most of the complaints people seem to have with the show is that they don't like the art; but it seems fairly well-done; the only problem I had with it is that it changes midway through, and the ...
