“Nice but nothing special”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

As all 'attractions' in Hoi An, it is nothing special. You go in the house, a 'guide' explains a little bit about the history of the family who owned the house (these houses are even 200 years old) and then there is a shop where they try to sell you the souvenirs you find outside for half of the price they quote!
Nice furniture in the first room of the house.

“Quick Tour”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

We had a quick tour of the Old House and it was a traditional old house. It would have been a lot nicer if the small tour did not mainly try to sell us stuff... That was a little annoying.

“Representative of Chinese era”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

Wel preserved, in authentic street ending at the bridge. Advisable is also to take a boat tour which you can hire in harbor for €17 per 2 hours.

“wooden wonder”
Reviewed July 13, 2014

The House of Tan Ky is one of several old buildings that showcase how the merchants lived and traded.So much detail in the construction and wooden artefacts .Such small rooms,yet designed with open courtyard for ventilation,light and practical extra space.You need to visit several of these old dwellings.As usual visit before the crowds.June was great ,no crowds.A must to really appreciate a way of life.
