Lobby looked ok - room was awful. Ruined our entire day at Dublin - just at the thought of having to stay the night at this "hotel." Ended up booking a room at the Four Seasons because was too disgusting to stay here. The Four Seasons was awesome and didn't cost much more money!!!

Find something better.

Bed was clean, but the bathroom was moldy. Staff were disinterested. The Copper Alley Bistro, connected to the hotel was poor.

Temple Bar district is fun for music and dinner, but our best time was in a pub toward bottom of Cow's alley.

The good, the bad, the ugly

First off, the hotel is very clean and in a good location. Staff was friendly and helpful. That being said, I did not sleep the entire 4 nights we stayed here...the walls are thin, a bar sits below the hotel/in the hotel...and it is VERY noisy at night. Try The Central Hotel, which is even closer to major sites and quiet...also it was a bit cheaper.

Unheavenly bells

The hotel was fine for the money, but it has one huge disadvantage. It's just opposite a cathedral that for some reason has to ring bells all day and night. Every hour is struck, no matter if nobody cares whether it's 3 AM or not. And the Friday evening carillon went on and on and on Unless you sleep the sleep of the dead, you will constantly wake up. It sort of poisoned my stay there. The other thing was, the wifi sometimes worked, sometimes didn't. I went to other places and my computer picked up the signal fine. Not at the Harding. They tried to do something but to no avail. Very inconvenient. They called a nearby hotel and I went there to get my email but clearly I'd rather do that in my own room.

would stay again

Staff were extremely helpful. Only downsides were the tiny TV, poor water pressure in the shower and lack of hot water.

A few days in Dublin

This hotel, while not fancy or hip, is perfectly located and is a good value. Friendly staff and has a pub and a restaurant located on the property. It's also quiet (except for the occasional church bells) which seems to be rare for the area.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

The temple bar area is fun but it is touristy and much more expensive than pubs in other areas.

Decent value in a great location

The Harding lived up (or down) to our expectations. A nice little hotel in a great location. Our room overlooked the "smoking" area for the hotel bar so it was quite noisy. However, we were expecting that and it didn't bother us. Hotel bar was much livelier than expected.

Hotel Harding

Location was very good. The staff was professional and the people at the front desk were always informative and helpful. Some noise at night but tolarable.

okay for the money

This hotel was worn out looking,and bare bones budget, but met our needs. We needed a triple and the room was adequate and fairly large. We didn't eat there but ate at the queen of Tarts a couple blocks away which was very good. Good location - we walked to Temple Bar and Trinity College, no problem. The parking is a couple blocks away and not too pricey for a city.
