* PurelyAestheticGender: In the [=PS2=] game, you control either a young boy or a young girl. The only thing that's different ([[CaptainObvious besides your appearance]]) is Cactus Gunman's horror show: shooting you if you're a boy, smacking you with a rose bouquet if you're a girl.

The creator of this world is an old anthropomorphic mouse, Gregory, who also owns and runs the hotel, "Gregory House." ([[Series/{{House}} No, not that one.]]) There are three seasons, a fourth half-season on the [=DVDs=] as a side series, a UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 game, and a manga.

* [[BittersweetEnding Bittersweet]] / DownerEnding: Both for the first two series and the game.
** First series: [[spoiler:The Guest manages to, with Death's help, escape Gregory House and return to reality. However, then he sees the world as gray and returns, becoming Haniwa Salaryman, who would appear at least once in every season thereafter.]]
** ''The Second Guest'': [[spoiler:Neko Zombie goes fire-kamikaze to destroy Gregory's world, and tells the Second Guest to throw herself into the flames to complete the process. She doesn't, and the hotel quickly resurrects itself, with the Second Guest becoming a member of Gregory's family. [[HereWeGoAgain With another new guest just entering the hotel]].]]
** In the game, [[spoiler:Neko Zombie burns the hotel down like before. The PlayerCharacter escapes back to reality, but then returns for good immediately after.]]

Added DiffLines:

** As ''The Last Train'' shows, [[spoiler: Not even ''Gregory'' can escape.]]
** PlayedForLaughs in ''The Bloody Karte''. [[spoiler: All of Catherine's attempts at romance are doomed to failure because of either the insanity of those around her or her own malicious personality.]]


* EldritchLocation: Gregory House and the surrounding area are something of a purgatory-like place where the usual laws of reality and sanity don't really apply.



* FailureIsTheOnlyOption: It doesn't matter who they are or how hard they try to leave, [[spoiler: ''none'' of the Guests between two seasons of the anime shorts, a PS2 game, a Mobile Game and a Manga managed to escape Gregory House in the end.]]



* HellHotel: Gregory House.

* HellHotel: well, more like a Purgatory Hotel but Gregory House.House certainly qualifies.

* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Catherine.

* ReptilesAreAbhorrent: Catherine.Catherine, mostly due to her creepily sexual behavior and obsession with "blood tests".



** The videogame uses a sanity meter in place of a regular health bar. It slowly but constantly decreases just by being inside the Hotel, although sleeping in your bed completely refills it.

Added DiffLines:

* TokenGoodTeammate: A couple albeit, few guests in the hotel actually help the guests in their escape.

Added DiffLines:

* GainaxEnding: To season three - [[spoiler:the season is implied to be a prequel and Gregory prepares to bring the train to Gregory House only for it to be revealed... that it was all a toy being played with by James! But there really were people on it anyway. Including Gregory. Who is playing with the train in the train.]]

Added DiffLines:

* CantTakeCriticism: Perceived or real, Hell's Chef does not react well to having his cooking criticized. A rude pig patron in "The Last Train" made that fatal mistake.

* {{Badass}}: Hell's Chef.

* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin / MeaningfulName: [[MindScrew One of the only solid parts of the show]] is that the majority of the resident's names are quite appropriate. For example, [[TheGunslinger Cactus Gunman]] is a cactus with a gun.
