Comfortable room, quiet area (if you don't mind the church bells) after hotel pub closed. Nice pub with locals visiting (live music, etc.), breakfast in connected restaurant. We two ladies felt safe as reseption was staffed. Bus stop for "hop on hop off" around the corner, 10 min fast walk to shopping area :-) I'll be back!

Room Tip: If you choose 1st floor you don't need to use the elevator :-)

Double room quite big and clean, only the TV could be improved (it is an old one). The bath is good as well. The hotel is well located verry close to Temple Bar and main commercial streets.
Very friendly staff and excellent relation quality-price

Huge double room. Carpet, but clean. Coffee, tea and fridge, hair dryer, iron in room. Quiet, at least our room facing the backyard. You can hear the party in the pub until 10-11 pm if your room is on the 2. floor, but not very much. Probably not if your on higher floors. Good location.

Great value for money and excellent location. The Harding Hotel is a cosy and friendly place to stay when in Dublin. Rooms are spacious and clean and beds are comfortable. There is a little pub adjacent to the Hotel and is always handy for a night cap!
I would always come back for myself of when booking for my family and friends.

The Harding Hotel was a great little hotel in Dublin. It is within walking distance of the main city attractions, shopping areas and restaurants/cafes. I had a clear view of Christchurch cathedral from my window. The church bells go off every 15 minutes so if you want a great location and you're a light sleeper then be prepared for some sleepless nights. The bells go off all over Dublin so t The prices are very competitive and while the rooms are basic, it's very comfortable. The staff are very helpful with any questions or concerns that you have. My one criticism is that the water pressure in the shower is very weak. If I ever come back to Dublin (which I hope I will soon because it is an amazing city) I will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Bottom floor is noisier as it is closer to the pub

Dear Matt D,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of your experience of the Harding Hotel following your recent visit to Dublin and for your kind words, it was indeed our pleasure to have accommodated you.

I was delighted to hear that you found the Harding so close and convenient to all of the city center areas of interest for shopping, socializing and sightseeing.
It was also very pleasing to read that you found the staff to be friendly and helpful with information etc. and also that you thought that the rooms were comfortable, spacious and clean.

What was most satisfying from the review was that you thought the Harding was great value for money and that you would recommend us to other friends or family.

I would hope that we may be able to accommodate you again should you get the opportunity to return to Dublin and that we can accommodate you to the same high standards of care and quality that you experienced on this recent stay.
