  1. 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.
  2. 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.

    Hotel Babylon supplies an attractive cast, a cheeky attitude and just enough depth to keep you coming back for more.
  4. 75
    Even when the guests and plots falter, the regular cast keeps the hour in painless motion.
  5. British reviewers pegged Hotel Babylon correctly when they called it flashy, trashy, cheeky, frothy and "like a perfectly executed souffle."
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

    Intelligent and well written. Superbly acted. Classy. Revealing and exciting. Additionally, you might call me shallow- but those accents Intelligent and well written. Superbly acted. Classy. Revealing and exciting. Additionally, you might call me shallow- but those accents still amount to one of the best parts of the show. I know that doesn't sound like the show amounts to much - but does it ever! Expand

    Beautifully casted, gorgeous and lush set, and more fun than "Footballers' Wives".

    An enjoyable waste of an hour but if all the actors had American accents I don't think the critics would have rated it so highly
