“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

At the very first look we just thought that it was an old Chinese house but it’s was a blast stepping inside. The furniture and the columns, lanterns, etc. are all very well preserved. Just like going back into a small box of Hoi An history. The visit to this house really fulfilled our trip to Hoi An with Asia Advisor.

“Neat to see, 5-10 minute attraction”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

It's interesting for see the old building but it is only a very short visit. The families still live there and it's closed during lunch (same for the other 2 houses). As for the previous comments, I was not coerced to buy anything but I'm sure some do.

“Neat to see...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

Neat to see, although once inside they try to sell you things as in most places. Good history, and seeing that there isn't as much historical places in the city not a bad quick stop over for 1st time guest. I don't know if it would be a priority if return visit to Hoi An

“Very old traditional house.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Don't miss the opportunity to lern about the traditions, explained by an in-house guide, view the structure, antiques and even the water mark indicating the height of the relatively recent flooding.

“Historic house”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2012

Another of the many old house in Hoi An. Several generations of the same family have lived here. Interesting is the grating-like trap door on the second floor that allowed the furniture to be raised during the Hoi An floods. At times the water is two meters deep in
parts of the old town.
