Critic Reviews

  1. At blending comedy and drama and presenting freshly drawn characters, though, Hotel Babylon has a lot to learn from the likes of "Desperate Housewives" and "Grey's Anatomy." As a hotel, and as a TV series, put it at less than three stars.
  2. 80
    Hotel Babylon supplies an attractive cast, a cheeky attitude and just enough depth to keep you coming back for more.
  3. Hotel Babylon is willfully bright and sexy--like the Parker's d├ęcor, it updates a '70s sensibility--but also has a nice eye for detail, good minor characters and well-flowing dialogue.
  4. Reviewed by: Brian Lowry

    Light and breezy, Hotel Babylon is a fairly simple conceit, built around the employees at a high-class London hotel and the guests they serve.
  5. British reviewers pegged Hotel Babylon correctly when they called it flashy, trashy, cheeky, frothy and "like a perfectly executed souffle."
  6. A high-gloss series with production values just as significant as what we see on American TV, it's worth checking into Hotel Babylon if you're seeking a respite from reality--TV shows or otherwise.
  7. 75
    Even when the guests and plots falter, the regular cast keeps the hour in painless motion.
