right on one of the main streets in old quarter - this little gem give a nice view of how Vietnamese life in the city was like long ago - the house is beautifully restored and is a classic shop house with a central atrium.

Nothing special to see at all.I have been in far better places,with more to see and much larger buildings.This place takes all of 5 minutes to check out.A few rooms downstairs,then a couple of rooms upstairs.Not really worth the visit

An interesting place to visit but more interesting with a free Hanoi guide to explain the culture and the significance of different aspects of the house. Well worth the entrance fee.

If you have never been to a traditional Vietnamese Ancient house then I would highly recommend you pay this place a visit. It gives you a good idea of how the Vietnamese use to live and what it looks like in a traditional Vietnamese home. However if you have been to another one before somewhere else in Vietnam, it is...

Small as most of them were, gives some insight into the inside of old time Vietnamese life. If you have a spare 30 mins then pop in

Interesting restored traditional house. Worth the small admission fee. Approx 1/2 hour visit is all that is needed. As you wander around Hanoi Old Quarter recommend a stop here

We enjoyed this lovely house and gave us great insight as to how they lived. All restored beautifully. However it can be looked through very quickly and so don't expect this to be a long visit as we did.

A restored traditional house set out as it would have been in the 18th century. Definitely worth the small entrance fee.

We had a great time in this ancient house. I am sure all of tourists are curious about tube houses in the Old quarter but they have no chance to come really inside. This is must be seen one for you guys with unique architecture. Then you can taste Hanoian's life in 19th century as all items were preserved in... More
