Hanoi Ancient House, Hanoi

(3.9/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Get to know how 19th-century Hanoians lived at Hanoi Ancient House, located in the city's historic old quarter. The restored house represents typical Hanoian architecture of the period: long and narrow, with a square garden connecting its two sections and a small balcony on the first floor. Note the house's typical yellow shade, and the unique design that maximizes light. Take a turn around the interior to see the well-preserved old furniture and decor. You can also buy some traditional Vietnamese decorations and souvenirs in the onsite shop. Put Hanoi Ancient House into our Hanoi trip itinerary builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Good surprise, this Chinese House restored a few years ago was rescheduled "for the better": the merchants of memories installed inside 5 years ago have disappeared and, instead, the period furniture was installed. The kitchen also had a salutary redevelopment. so, we have a better evocation of life in the century last in this House.

  • 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 ...  more »
  • 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  more »

  • It's an interesting attraction, but there's not much there. That said, admission isn't exactly expensive. If you're interested in this part of Vietnamese history or simply just older architecture, it's worth a visit. I quite enjoyed it.
  • Interesting how things were set up in a house of a wealthy merchant. Best to come with a local guide to explain things to you.
  • A dusty but interesting space.
  • Good to see how it was in the past
  • Nice nostalgic
