Phuong Dong Hotel
A good option, with a pool

This giant building on the roundabout near the Central City Park is hard to miss.
It's a good alternative for to the Saigon Kimlien for the mid-range traveller -- they have a swimming pool, though they tend to close it during the winter. We found the staff here to be friendly and helpful, and the rooms are right in line with what you'd expect for the price. Probably the best reason to stay here is that it's an easy stroll from the small, quiet neighbourhood just in back of the hotel, which has a number of cafes and restaurants worth checking out. That, along with easy proximity to the park make it a better choice, on the whole, than anything along the main drag, if it's in your price range.
