Enjoyed seeing a tradional old house. The artist inside is a hardcase. Couldn't understand any english and wouldn't let me go.

This visit was included in the "Hidden Hanoi" guided tour. It was a very nice surprise. When we went there it was very few people there and you could take your time to just embrase the atmosphere and enjoy the beauty of the house.

A well spent 30 minutes. I really recommend this place if you visit Old town in Hanoi.

We were taking here by our lovely guides from Hanoi Kids. Such a fascinating & beautiful house. Just as well our guides were there as they explained everything to us.

We went here while on our electric car tour and thought it was a very interesting look at how life was lived in a restored ancient home that has functioned in many forms since it was built.

This was well worth a visit for an insight into the old Vietnamese way of life, and a tranquil place to spend time out of the frenetic street life.
