    This series was one I stumbled upon and started to watch because the episodes were short. It turned out to be a very amusing series, with characters well-developed in the short time they were given. I felt like I had a taste of the interesting setting and premise, and it also gave the impression of greater depth than the 3-minute episode length was able to fully convey.

    There were plenty of ...

    Way too many bad reviews for a neat little show
    Yes, it is short. Yes it has a nostalgic art style. It is still an entertaining little show with a great deal of humor in it.
    It is based on a 4 koma manga, so the plot lines are short and fit in the shorter format.
    Is it an artistic masterpiece? No, but it is awesome for what it is, especially compared to other short anime.

    Good for a 2 1/2 minute comedy
    Sparrow's Hotel is one of those shows that benefits from its limitations, with older style of animation and a three minute run time, it keeps keeps itself from over doing any joke, falling into needless drama, and having any boring parts. Though the biggest problem with the show is that it is only two and a half minutes long, not long enough to actually be drawn into it, and have a good set peace. ...

    Fun show that I wish was longer
    I really have enjoyed this. It's a nice little bit of entertainment. I'd love to see them expand the concept to a 30 minute show, but as it is, it's still worth a watch. I would definitely call it my favorite short form show, and gave it 5 stars according to how I rank it against other 3 minute anime, and not comparing apples to oranges and ranking it against 30 minute anime.

    A 3min time waster.. in a good way
    A nice little time waster to take your mind off things. Its not a visually good looking anime or anything special but its harmless ^_^ . Can be pretty funny at times as well. I don't think it deserves all the 1 star ratings it is receiving

    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 ...

    Umm, they should call it SHALLOW HOTEL
    I'm not a big 3-Min anime fan, but I saw this, and all of the bad reviews, and HAD to see how bad.. It's very predictable, shallow story line, etc. The main thing, is that *I* try not to rule out watching an anime after 1 show, I have to be able to watch 2-3 of them. Honestly, one other short anime I couldn't stand, but has many, MANY fans, is Axis Powers Hetalia. The animation on this show is ...

    Well, yeah... Actually no. Definitively no.
    I understand that this is supposed to be a comedy, but it's really not funny.
    The 90's themed art should really create nostalgia (to some degree), but really, it just makes the show more tasteless.
    In all seriousness, this show isn't about anything else than a hyperactive girl with oversized breast and a presumably obscure past, which is in reality is somewhat shallow.
    Also, Satō's appearance ...

    Another pointless 3 minute anime
    I wouldn't waste my time watching this anime, 3 minute episodes of a maid, doing maid work at a hotel, who seems to be blonde(Stupid), their appears to be some kind of background theme that she is a ninja or something hard to tell from 1 epp.
