Memorial House

Memorial House has been “restored as an example of old Hanoi architecture,” writes Traveller. Behind its “dark-ironwood facade,” artisans display traditional arts and handicrafts that provide a glimpse into the inner layout of the Old Quarter's homes. This traditional merchants’ house, “sparsely but beautifully decorated,” is one the Old Quarter’s “best-restored properties,” says Lonely Planet. “Exquisitely carved chairs, bureaus, and tea tables decorate the second floor, where a balcony overlooks a courtyard festooned with Chinese lanterns,” writes Fodors. “A Chinese family that sold traditional medicines on the ground floor originally occupied this house until they resettled in 1954 in southern Vietnam, along with many other Chinese living in the Old Quarter.”
