In the centre of the action in Saigon's backpacker area, the large Duong Phuong Saigon Hotel sits on the northern end of De Tham Street.
Formerly known as the Orient Hotel, the rooms here come with the standard midrange amenities and fall on the smaller side of the scale. Those on lower floors have windows to match. Noise has been a complaint here, especially in the evening as music from the nearby cafes may creep into your room. Our recommendation is to try to get a room on a higher floor, where you may escape some of the street noise and secure a larger window. Very popular with tour groups because of its location, the Dong Phuong Saigon seems to constantly stay busy and overall the hotel is well maintained but nothing to write home about. Western-style breakfast is included.
