Audience Reviews for American Horror Story: Hotel

  • Jan 11, 2023
    By far one of my favourites! And lady Gaga meow!!!
  • Nov 10, 2022
    Eu estranhamente gostei de Hotel pelo fato de ser uma temporada bastante sangrenta. Estética impecável com personagens marcantes, más infelizmente decepciona com varias pontas soltas e enigmas que não são respondidos.
  • Nov 07, 2022
    Lady Gaga rocks! This is a seriously creepy show. But there were a few scenes just too gory that are hard to forget. Looking for horror-the real thing? Here it is. Beware!
  • Nov 03, 2022
    Loved it, ga ga is outstanding ding. This is one of the best American horrors so far.
  • Oct 29, 2022
    Hotel ended up being my favorite season, after I watched Apocalypse I had to go back and watch it and now it's my favorite. It has some of the best characters in all of ahs that are all played perfectly by each actor. And the story imo is very interesting and entertaining. I love AHS Hotel !
  • Oct 23, 2022
    In my opinion, the last classic AHS season. Great ensemble cast with new addition of Lady Gaga who does a very good job in her first main TV role. Good, but not strong story. Great ambience and soundtrack like no other season.
  • Oct 22, 2022
    The loss of Lange is felt throughout the season and while the plot started quite well, it just went a lot of sideways quite quickly. Bates and Gaga are the only standouts this season, the others weren't enough in the season or just dropped the ball a bit.
  • Oct 18, 2022
    Une des meilleures saison de AHS
  • Oct 12, 2022
    A melhor coisa da série é, definitivamente, a condessa que inclusive merecia mais tempo de tela. O plot do assassino dos 10 mandamentos é o mais chatinho da série, John Lowe o mais chato da temporada.
  • Oct 11, 2022
    Favourite season. Beautiful cinematography, design, standout performances from Kathy Bates & Denis O'Hare.
