Not much to see here, just flood levels etched into the walls and some nice furniture. They really push the hard sell with souvenirs and trinkets. I needed to use up an Old Town ticket so wasn't too fussed. The information about the house is pretty interesting but I'm sure there are better ones to visit in Old Town

Doesn't look like much from the outside but is quite charming once you step through the door. Dark rich timber walls, carved furniture and richly decorated pillars give it an old world charm. Lanterns hanging from the ceiling, ancient ceramic/porcelain vases and family portraits add to the ambience. Need a ticket for admission which is purchased from the Tourist Information... More

Since you already bought that entrance ticket, you might as well visit, but there is not that much too see since its just an old house, kept in its original style, which is kinda nice but we went from the front door to the back door in about 2 min.

This is one of the better old heritage houses to see, with interesting architecture, furniture and decorations, and informative tour guides. Some of the other "heritage homes" are nothing more than shops selling trinkets, with disinterested "guides."

Certainly worth sticking your head in here as part of your tour around the old town. Building is in good condition. Lovely old furniture. Learn a bit of history of the many generations that lived here and appreciate how bad the flooding got in Hoi An until recent times. Doesn't take long.

The most interesting thing was the flood levels marked on the walls. Having paid for entry as part of the Old Town entry fee, I didn't expect to be asked for donations or to buy unrelated trinkets in each of the rooms we were shown. This did not seem representative of how the town people lived, just how the rich... More

This is a nice old house in the old quarter that you should not miss as the typical characteristic of thousand old houses in Hoi An still well protected.

I stopped here at midday, so first thing i do is only sit down in front of the fan. Not so much thing you can do here, just sightseeing the furniture from the past and buy stuff in the back of the house. I don't get much information about the house from the staff since they're not answer any of... More
