Owner description: This house in the Old Quarter was restored in 1999, as an example of an ancient Hanoian home. It represents the architecture of the Old Quarter, and is decorated to reflect ancient houses of Hanoi.

I loved historical homes and this one was very interesting. It was beautifully restored, yet it's pretty small and doesn't take too long to visit, Don't let that stop you. I visited it with my guide from Hanoi Free Tour Guides and she told me that it reminded her of her grandparents' house (but fancier).

I also visited the Enthnology Museum with a guide from Hanoikids who also told me that one of the homes we visited was like her grandparents' home. It was difficult for me to picture but later on I visited some villages and the residents still lived in traditional homes like toe ones on display.

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 us and refused second entry payment as we had already been there!
