Our family stayed for 4 nights in 2 rooms at the Vien Dong Hotel in late January. We can thoroughly recommend it. The hotel is new, rooms are excellent and reasonably priced (we paid A$57/night per room), staff are very friendly and helpful, and the breakfast is great.
The location - opposite the 23/9 Park - is excellent with many restaurants and travel agents (try Sinh Cafe just around the corner for a good range of tours) in the area and just a 10 minute walk to the Ben Thanh markets and a little further to the Dong Koi area. Plenty of taxis available. We particularly like the Vinusan and Mauhai (not sure of the spelling?) taxi companies - airconditioned vehicles in good condition, drivers were polite and well dressed, meters which work properly. Overnight buses to Cambodia and regional areas of Vietnam leave from just outside the hotel.
We had 2 rooms on the 7th floor at the rear of the building. One of the rooms did not have any external window but, like all rooms not at the front of the hotel, faced onto a large internal atrium. Initially we were not so keen on no external windows but got used to it quite quickly. Deluxe rooms on the front of the hotel seem to have small balconies and have a good view over the park but face onto the very busy noisy Pham Ngu Lao street so rooms at the back will probably give a better night's sleep!
We thoroughly recommend this hotel.
