Beautifully preserved 19th/20th century home in the old quarter. Luckily arrived just as it was opening and had the place to myself for a while. Small entrance fee, very good value, helpful staff.

Fairly small house and little signage but we went with a guide (on our way to somewhere else) and found it interesting.

Interesting if you're into old houses (I am). A small entrance fee (10,000 Dong). It's a small house, so even with strolling around & peering at every picture & piece of furniture, it'll take about 15 mins.

15-30 minutes is the maximum time you need to check this place. It's worth it if you're staying around Old Quarter.

Of all the tourist sights in Hanoi, we loved this place best. We spent some time basking in the ambience of the ancient house. Worth engaging a guide if you are interested in the culture and the day-to-day life of Vietnamese of the past.

If you want to learn about Old Quarter - take a walking tour, or get a self-guide book and walk it. All over you will see a Vietnames flag showing the tourist attraction. Lovely example of an ancient house.

A really interesting introduction to Hanoi's history and heritage. Displays and signage, excellent. Easy to read and English was good. Staff very helpful. The first time we went my camera battery failed and the spare was 'flat'. Went back the next day and staff remembered...More
