    I went on 7/2017 to stroll the old town Hoi an. Girl guides walked in dressed in ao dai at the entrance to and inside that guides you in English carefully. It is a service elsewhere. Hard girl guides and staff, thanks for explaining in broken English. Through the souvenir shop at the back and didn't face an unpleasant one.

    First part of the short but interesting tour with a guide who speaks your language. The second part is essentially reserved to purchases so not great thing to see.

    If you take the cyclo was taken to the kitchen. Here is not supposed to be. Going in, some women are sitting in the garden, here is a greeting with the Vietnamese ignored. No smile. One who will guide you and me so will detail in English there are good. Just remember to say just does not answer the questions. Because this guide comes much recommended various souvenirs in our slowly observed. By the way... If it is better if you like making sure the place is having a tell to go ahead around by cyclo, arrived. Also told showed with a smile! Out of order, saying take different was sick.

    Small but pretty. You can also get some information about the building.

    Commercial merchandise and souvenirs place. Not worth a visit...

    One of the more informative of the historic "places of interest" in Hoi An. The guide was detailed and thorough instead of robotic like those found at some of the other more frequented places. A beautiful house serving as a family shrine with detailed architecture and a rich history. A real downside was the over-the-top push to sell stuff from their much larger than necessary souvenir shop.

    Interesting building, but 90% of the tour was a sales pitch for the tourist souvenirs they had on sale throughout the building.

    Another tourist trap where they try to sell you stuff! If you have a spare ticket and a few spare minutes, you could pop in here. But otherwise it isn't worth making a trip there

Where to stay in Hoi An

While Hoi An offers a good selection of sleeping options in all price categories, only a few of them lie in the old town, probably the city's most popular tourist area. To stay near this historic neighborhood, look for hotels in the surrounding streets, especially Ba Trieu and Hai Ba Trung. If you can, look for rooms in the evening, when many budget hotels try to fill up by offering deep discounts. For the best choices and bargains, reserve as early as possible.
