Icon 56 is located in District 4, across the river from the business and commercial district of Saigon. Don’t let the number of the district put you off – you are literally just 5 minutes away from Ben Thanh Market and all that it entails – restaurants, bars, cafes, and even parks. Nguyen Hue (the famous pedestrian street) and other major city attractions are also only a walking distance away from you.
District 4 is popular for its street-food. Ton Dan street, Vinh Khanh street, and Cau Chong street, all within walking distance, are all popular street food alleys where you can find various dishes of Vietnam, such as pho, bun rieu, sea snails (oc), banh mi, bot chien, bun mam, etc., and other dishes like grilled chicken and even sushi! Your options are almost limitless!
You can either join the countless others on stools on the sidewalk or get some take-away and find a spot on the famous Cau Mong bridge, and eat in peace as you watch the sunset over the river.
There is also a convenience store on the ground floor of the building and a 24/7 Circle K a 2-minute-walk away. With everything located so conveniently close to you, there’s not much else you’d need in a city like this. We’ll gladly recommend places for you to go if you are overwhelmed with your choices!
Don’t be overwhelmed by the motorcycles on the road – walk around, cross our streets, get some Banh Mi and go to Cau Mong bridge to watch the sunset. You are only a walking distance away from many restaurants and markets, but taxis are readily available too for ~15k VND per km, but Grab are the cheapest options to get around with no hassle. They also offer the bike options so you can avoid traffic.
We highly recommend that you take advantage of Onetrip’s donation-based City Tour run by local university students seeking cultural exchange opportunities with foreign travelers. It is a great way to orient yourselves within the city and see all the beautiful landmarks of Saigon. Not to mention, it is a favorite among our guests!
Or if you want something more local and love to explore hidden gems of the city, let Onetrip tour guide lead you to those non-tourist spot with interesting stories in Saigon In Depth tour.
We also offer an Evening Food Tour to fill your tummy up with what we think are the best local food. Other options include the Mekong Delta and Cu Chi Tunnels Adventure. If interested, do send us a message and we will save you a seat!
Our #1 RULE is to treat our home as if it were your own - unless your home resembles that of a college frat house, in which case think of your grandma’s home instead =) With that being said, the following rules are implemented out of necessity in order to ensure everyone’s safety and comfort.
STRICTLY NO SMOKING inside the property. Any signs of smoking inside our property will result in a USD$250 cleaning fee for restoration of our property and availability loss to get the unit ready for our next guests. Additionally, we reserve our rights to ask guests who break our policies to leave immediately without refund.
MUST REGISTER all over-night visitors. This is actually required by the law but is also a good practice to ensure everyone's safety. You will be held completely responsible for any wrongdoing such as causing damage, being negligent (ie: leaving the gate to our home unlocked), and being disrespectful to those around. Standard extra guest fees will also be applied accordingly.
NO SHOES inside the house. We understand this can be an issue for some people, but that is the Vietnamese custom and we also love to keep our floors clean. Maybe you’ll make a habit of it back home!
A SOCIAL ACCOMMODATION - We strive to provide you with a one-of-a-kind experience that is different to what you get at hotels and hostels – something more responsible, more human, and ultimately more valuable. We believe that our mission aligns perfectly well with Airbnb’s community. With that in mind, please do not treat our members or our services like you would at a hotel. If you’re looking for 24/7 room service, we strongly suggest that you book your accommodation elsewhere. But if you’re looking for a chilled out, cozy atmosphere…a home away from home, then by all means book with us.
HAVE RESPECT for those around you. All of the rules listed above are simply to encourage our guests to be respectful towards one another and together build a better, more social and responsible community.
CONSEQUENCES for breaking these rules can unfortunately result in the offender(s) being asked to leave, in addition to providing compensation for losses or damages caused. We will have complete discretion on whether to offer a refund for the unused portion of the reservation. So far, we have not asked any guest to leave and we would prefer to keep it that way for as long as we can, so please help us keep the friendly streak going.
Other than that, all that is left to say is that we hope you have a wonderful stay and that you will fall in love with this beautiful city just like we did.
This place is amazing for a big group. Great location and very clean!
This apartment was beautiful and even nicer then the photos. I booked it late at last minute and they accommodated me immediately. great communication. the apartment was super clean and close to the pedestrian bridge to get over the river to the heart of town. would definitely recommend this room to friends and family. the infinity pool on the roof was a nice bonus as well.
