Just down from our hotel, this restored original design house is well worth popping into. Quite small, but all their houses are ( there was a tax on house width). Fascinating items of furniture and the kitchen looks very old

An old wooden merchant's house beautifully restored. A little oasis in the busy old town of Hanoi. It takes only 15 minutes to walk through and it's worth your while.

This is a nice old house in the old quarter and worth a visit if you have a spare half hour. It is small and doesn't have many rooms but it was quiet when we went. It is simply, but traditionally furnished and has some...More
