Really nice place to go, but 20 minutes is enough to visit. There is nothing special, just a really nice historic house.

Entrance fee 10k. It is a small house with a little shop inside, but the rest of the house is decorated as it was back then. You get a good picture of how they lived.

Just down from our hotel, this restored original design house is well worth popping into. Quite small, but all their houses are ( there was a tax on house width). Fascinating items of furniture and the kitchen looks very old

Nothing much for those already used to old, SE Asian architecture. Layout and furnishings similar to those old Peranakan houses seen in Singapore & Malaysia. For VND 10,000 can't complain...The place blends in with the rest of the street and is easy to miss. If...More

This is one of the unique old houses well preserved in Hanoi and it is very beautiful. Easy to imagine life here and it's a pity there are not much more houses like this preserve.
