It was a nice stop off on a rainy day in Hoi An. We were greeted by a lady who sat us down, fed us tea and told us the history of the house. I think she mentioned that the 7th generation of the family are still living upstairs! The interior is beautiful so it was nice to have a... More

Entrance to this house requires the old town ticket. Only the ground floor is open but there's really not much to see apart from a few mediocre displays. Some information boards in English. Short visit and not too exciting.

Really lovely old building but I am nosey and as you only have 2 rooms to see I wanted to venture upstairs (which is off limits) Don't know what else to say... we walked in and 15minutes later had finished, not a lot of time needed.

The decor is great and it is worth seeing, but it's so annoying that on an official tour they started selling you zodiac charms! Keep the educational & commercial part separate, please!!!

This is an interesting home from an architectural and historical perspective and should be worth a visit. However, the house is small and was crowded. Making matters worse, the back half of the house was filled with.otorcycles. Would suggest skipping this attraction.

Some beautiful details to this over 200 year old house. You can see Japanese and Chinese architectural influence as well, There's also a carved wooden balcony in the courtyard. Towards the rear, near the river, are markings on a wall showing the heights of various floods to have inundated the house.

Tan Ky House is perfectly laid out. It is a beautiful slice of Vietnamese history. It is very quick to visit so try to take your time looking at the artifacts. Enjoy!

This is a lovely old house right by the river. It is beautifully furnished and the family still live in the upstairs area. In time of flood the furniture is all hauled upstairs but despite having been under water two weeks before our visit there was no trace of damage.

It was a nice house to see with explanations in french and in english. Minus, you cannot totally visit the house (the upper floor is not available)

This is a very interesting slice of history in Hoi An. An old Japanese house showing you how life was for a well off family. I presume the were well off. Interesting so see the flood levels marked on the wall.
