Hanoi Ancient House, Hanoi

(3.9/5 based on 260+ 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.

  • Interesting to see a house which has been restored to show how life was in the 19th century. Well worth the detour.

  • 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
