Great Hotel!

Great hotel, close to temple bar, guinness brewery, christ church cathedral is right across the street. Friendly and helpful staff who were excited to give advice on anything from the best nightlife, tourist attractions, restaurants, etc. Would definately stay there next time. Truely underpriced.

Dublin trip

When I first got the the hotel I thought it was really nice. The room was small and the bed was very uncomfortable and I couldn't get warm water in my shower. The hotel staff was very nice and very helpful.

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.

Basic Accomodations, Great Service

Very basic but great service, starting with an early check-in at about 10am. Staff gave accurate and thorough advice about places to shop, transport, places to jog, and areas to avoid after nightfall. Single room was TINY but clean. Location is great, just on the outskirts of the center of everything. If you're spending a lot of time in your room, beware of the church bells from Christ Church. They almost never cease on Sundays apparently. Both the restaurant and bar attached were great as well. Avoid walking down the hill on Fishamble St. alone at night, it was quite desolate.

Great place!

Great location! Walking distance to soo many Dublin attractions and sites! Its right at the end of Temple bar so nightlife is close and walking distance. Great restaurant all over. No real need for a car, parking is street and paid for hourly. The staff was very helpful and kind. Amazing cafe down the street called Bite of Life. Had such a great experience we came back at the end of our trip! The room the second time wasn't ideal but per our request the manager moved us first thing! Would recommend, however ask for a room in the back if you don't like church bells, and one on the third or fourth floor if you go to bed early as there is a bar on the first floor under some of the rooms.

Find something better.

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

Check out Salamanca, the Spanish Tapas restaurant just down the street. Excellent food and wines and generous portions. Actually a full menu, not just tapas available.

Basic but good

All fairly straightforward.. everything was good and the hotel is more central and closer to Temple Bar and Dublin city center than I thought it would be.. Bit disappointed that there was not a basic Nokia phone charger available as these are available everywhere but that was as much my own fault for not having my own.

Fantastic Stay!

So much to see and do very close to the hotel. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly/helpful. I actually went to Amsterdam and decided to stay at this hotel after I came back. Thank you Harding Hotel!!
